COVD-19 impact on the Conformal Coating Market
The Conformal coatings market is estimated to be USD 807 million in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 1,081 million by 2025 at CAGR of 6.0%. The factors promoting the growth of the market are the increasing number of PCB manufacturers in the APAC region and growing demand from high end applications that require the use conformal coatings.

The conformal coating market is impacted by the COVID 19, due to the disruption caused by it in the end-use industries globally:
- The automobile industry is heading toward a year of significant decline as a result of extended lockdowns, impact in production, and fall in consumer demand. Sales volumes of passenger and commercial vehicles are projected to drop to levels not seen in over a decade. The automotive industry is struggling with an abrupt and widespread stoppage of economic activity, as workers are advised to stay home, supply chains grind to a halt, and factories are closed. Lockdowns prohibiting the movement of people and the sudden stoppage of economic activity has caused a severe contraction in sectoral output and gross domestic product (GDP). It is estimated that factory closures in Europe and North America have caused some millions of passenger vehicles to be removed from production schedules. These production declines have a cascading effect on OEMs and material suppliers, which will also affect the demand for conformal coatings.
- Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 70% of the global aviation fleet is grounded. About 27,000 aircraft were in service at the beginning of 2020. Currently, less than 7,500 are still flying. The number of fleets is unlikely to recover to the previous levels until the end of 2022 at the earliest. Lockdowns have resulted in reduced passenger traffic and a significant decline in the revenue of airlines. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), global airline passenger revenues will drop by USD 314 billion in 2020, a 55% decline compared to 2019. The pandemic has had a significant impact on aircraft manufacturing as well. For instance, Airbus – one of the largest commercial aircraft manufacturing companies globally, has reduced its aircraft production rates by roughly one-third due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Boeing has also reported a first-quarter loss of USD 641 million. This has significantly affected the use of conformal coatings used in new aircraft production, as well as MRO operations
APAC is the largest market of conformal coatings, and this dominance is expected to continue till 2025. China is the key market in the region, consuming more than half of the demand for conformal coatings, followed by Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. These countries are expected to witness a steady increase in consumption from 2020 to 2025. The region contributes close to 90% of PCB production in the world, and market is mainly driven by the presence of a large number of leading global electronics companies. PCB industry is quite fragmented as there are more than 100 companies that constitute close to 90% of overall PCB revenues and most of them belong to APAC, more so in China & Taiwan. Recent years have seen a lot of PCB manufacturing shifts to APAC due to cost-effectiveness and closer access to customers in the region, hence the increase in consumption of conformal coatings.
