Optical Coating Market - Introduction
The global optical coating market is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period 2017 to 2025. Optical coating market is segmented in terms of materials, types, technology, end-use industry, and geography. Optical coatings are mono or multiple layers of thin film coated on the exterior or interior surface of an optical component. These layers are used to create a barrier to the incoming light and subsequently alter the reflection as well as transmission properties of the particular optical system. Rising demand for anti-reflective optical coatings and other types of coatings in the solar industry is one of the prime growth drivers for the global markets for optical coatings. Rising application of the low-cost optical coating in laser component manufacturing, aerospace & defense and the medical sector has acted as a push factor for the growth of optical coatings market.

Major technological advancement in the field of the optical coating was achieved during 1930’s with the introduction single-layer antireflection coating procedure in Germany. As of 2016, producers deploy mainly four types of optical coating technology such as vacuum deposition technology, ion-beam sputtering, plasma reactive sputtering, and others. Vacuum deposition technology is a thermal process where the source material is transformed into vapor state either through electron-beam bombardment or resistance heating inside a vacuum tube. In the ion-beam sputtering process, energetic ions are targeted to coating materials and these ions transfer kinetic energy “sputter” materials from target source. Plasma reactive sputtering process helps producers to design complex coating design consisting of high and low index materials.
Different types of optical coatings such as anti-reflective coating, high reflective coating, conductive coating, filter coating, electrochromic coating etc are utilized in industry verticals including renewable energy, consumer electronics, transportation, aerospace & defense etc. Rising demand for renewable energy and government regulations are driving the installation of the solar cell across residential and industrial sector. In emerging economies, installation rates of low-cost coated solar panels have been increased significantly in recent years. On the other hand, optical coatings increase durability and energy yield of solar cell, bringing down the cost per output. Therefore, growth in solar cell industry is fuelling the growth of application market for optical coating.
In consumer electronics, demand for magnesium fluoride as optical coating is growing due to its low-cost advantage, wide acceptability in optical component manufacturing and rising application in flat panels. In aerospace and defense sector, anti-reflective, filter and metal coatings are mostly used.
