In addition, the growing popularity and penetration for these coatings globally due to numerous beneficial properties like ease of application, electrical conductivity, and anti-repellant characteristics, thereby influencing the graphite coatings market growth in a positive way.

  • For instance, in June 2021, Oerlikon Balzers, introduced new “Baldia” portfolio of the diamond coatings, which is extremely wear-resistant and offers excellent thermal conductivity. The new range of coating portfolio fulfill the spectrum of the demanding machining applications and is being divided into 2 different base materials.

Moreover, increasing environmental regulations and a shift toward eco-friendly coatings have encouraged industries to seek alternatives to traditional solvent-based coatings, thus the demand for coatings with their lower volatile organic compound content and reduced environmental impact, are gaining prominence as sustainable coating solutions all over the world. However, the high cost of raw materials, complex production processes, and specialized application techniques which contributes to the higher price of graphite coatings is likely to limit their adoption, especially in cost-sensitive industries or applications where alternative coating options are available.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the growth of the graphite coatings market. The spread of the deadly coronavirus has drastically impacted the global economy as major manufacturing facilities were temporarily closed and had significant delays projects and investments. The pandemic has also resulted in huge disruptions in global supply chains as many countries have imposed restrictions on international trade and logistics, thereby negatively influenced the market.

By Application Analysis

Lubrication segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The growth of the segment market can be mainly attributed to widespread use of lubrication across different sectors including space & aviation, railway, automotive, and medical among others due to its ability to reduce friction, improve surface rollover qualities, and wears compressibility. In addition, ongoing advancements in nanotechnology have led to the development of enhanced graphite coatings with improved lubricating properties and these advanced coatings offer superior performance in terms of reduced friction, enhanced wear resistance, and prolonged lubrication intervals, thereby influencing the segment’s growth at the rapid pace.

The anti-seize agent segment is anticipated to grow at fastest growth rate over the coming years, mainly attributable to its range of beneficial properties including better resistance to corrosion, glazing, seizing, and enhanced thermal expansion along with the surging trend of using the product in metallic concrete supports and plates mainly to resist the thermal expansion.

By End Use Analysis

Automotive segment held the significant market revenue share in 2022

The automotive segment held the maximum market share in terms of revenue in 2022, which is highly attributable to numerous beneficial features and properties graphite coatings provides to automotive industry such as corrosion protection, lubrication and wear resistance, efficient thermal management, and fuel efficiency, leading to higher product adoption.

Additionally, graphite coatings also offer visually appealing finish to various automotive component including wheels, trim, and interior components coupled with this, they are solvent-free and contain low or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which minimizes their impact on air quality and human health, thereby increasing automobile production and sales is positively impacting the market growth. For instance, according to a report published in 2023, the total number of motor vehicles produced in 2022 was stood at around 85.4 million, with an increase of approx. 5.7% compared to 2021. The Greater China accounts for leading number of automobiles produced followed by Europe and North America in 2022.

The machinery segment is likely to grow at fastest growth rate in the next coming years, on account of its excellent corrosion resistance properties, which makes them suitable for machinery components that come into regular contact with various corrosive substances or environment along with the ability to provide chemical inertness, making them resistant to large range of chemicals and solvents.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific region dominated the global market in 2022

The Asia Pacific region dominated the global market for graphite coatings with substantial share in 2022, and is projected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The regional market growth can be largely accelerated to increased production of steel and various types of consumer electronics and significant expansion of automotive sector with growing number of consumers demanding for automobiles with advanced coatings and characteristics. Moreover, increasing utilization of graphite coatings in lithium-ion batteries, which are being widely adopted in electric vehicles, renewable energy storage, and consumer electronics and emergence of the region as major producer of lithium-ion batteries is propelling the demand and growth at exponential pace. According to the Indian Government, India has been producing approx. 81% of lithium-ion batteries for the country demand for electric vehicles and the country is likely to investment heavily in producing new production facilities for lithium-ion batteries in the next coming years to meet the rising demand for electric vehicles.
