The increasing competition, varying consumer demands, and technological advancements are factors that fuel the growth of optical coatings in the application industries
North America is the largest market for optical coatings, in terms of value, and is expected to be so till 2020. The countries in this region; the U.S., Mexico, and Canada are witnessing a gradual increase in the use of optical coatings in applications such as electronics & semiconductor, military & defense, transportation, telecommunication/optical communication, infrastructure, solar, and medical..
This growth is mainly due to the rising industrialization, presence of major market players, increasing expansion, merger & acquisition, and new product launch/product development activities in the region. Contributions of various research organizations toward the development of optical coatings and increased commercialization are also some of the key growth factors in the region.
The U.S. leads the North America optical coatings market accounting for more than half of the demand for optical coatings in the region. The increasing demand for laser protective lenses, high quality scratch-resistant optical components, and stringent government regulations are driving the growth of the optical coatings market in the country. The U.S. is followed by Mexico and Canada where the consumption of optical coatings is registering a steady growth. Mexico is the fastest growing country in the North American optical coatings market. This growth is driven by the growing collaboration activities adopted by emerging players for the R&D and production on AR coatings in the country.
The sputtering process is projected to be the fastest-growing technology of optical coatings in North America. This is attributed to the emerging demand of high quality dielectric filter coatings, polarization controlled multilayer coatings in the military & defense, and electronics application sectors of the North America region.
The filter coatings are the fastest-growing type of optical coatings in North America. These coatings are gaining importance because of their properties, such as environmental safety, high performance, and maintaining the laser damage threshold of the optical components. The growing demand from applications such as gas detection, flame detection, motion sensors, laser, biomedical, space, defense, and alcohol monitoring devices is driving the growth of filter coatings in the North American region.
The solar segment is projected to be the fastest-growing application of optical coatings in North America during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing need of environment friendly coatings that help in reducing the emission utility costs, improves efficiency and increase energy independence of the solar cells and panels. Thus, it has fueled the growth of optical coatings in the solar application segment in the region.
The major players in the global optical coatings market undertook various development strategies in the last five year. New product launch/product development, Expansion, merger & acquisition, and agreement/collaboration are some of the key strategies undertaken by major companies such as DuPont (U.S.), PPG Industries (U.S.), Inrad Optics (U.S.), Reynard Corporation (U.S.), Newport Corporation (U.S.), II-VI Optical Systems (U.S.), and Abrisa Technologies (U.S.) in the optical coatings industry. These strategies have helped to enhance production and increase the demand for optical coatings in North America region.
