Global solar panel coatings market is expected to grow at CAGR of 20% during the forecast period. A solar cell is a device that converts photons from the solar light into electricity. A solar panel is a collection of solar cells and together they produce electricity. Solar panel coatings are the coatings applied on the surface of a solar panel to protect them from dust, dirt and environmental conditions. These coatings are deposited on the surface of solar panel at the time of manufacturing. Solar panel coatings have great absorption capacity and high light transitivity.   

Increase in the demand for solar panels for generating energy led by the shift towards using renewable energy for power generation is driving the solar panel coatings market. Additionally, the maintenance of solar panels is very cost effective, which in turn, is boosting the solar panel coatings market. Solar panel coatings make solar panels resistant to scratches and provide waterproofing to them. Furthermore, they do not allow dust to accumulate on solar panels. Thus, solar panel coatings ultimately improve the life and efficiency of solar panels.

The global solar panel coatings market is segmented based on type, end user industry, region and company. Based on type, the market can be segmented into Anti-reflective, Hydrophobic, Self-cleansing, Anti-soiling, Anti-abrasion and Others. Anti-reflective coatings segment is expected to dominate the solar panel coatings market during the forecast period owing to their absorption capacity and improved light transitivity and reduction in reflection provided by them. These factors further improve the efficiency and life of the solar panels. Anti-reflective coatings are followed by the hydrophobic coatings. The hydrophobic segment is expected to witness growth during the forecast period since they do not allow water to remain on the surface of solar panels. Based on end user industry, the market can be categorized into Residential, Commercial, Energy, Agriculture, Automotive and Others. The residential sector is anticipated to dominate the market during forecast period. This can be accredited to the rise in demand for solar panels for generating electricity in the residential sector.

Regionally, the solar panel coatings market is gaining traction and expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the overall solar panel coatings market. Asia-Pacific is followed by North America, Europe, South America and Middle East & Africa.

The major players operating in the solar panel coatings market are NanoTech Types Pty Limited, Koninklijke DSM N.V, PPG Industries Inc., Nano Shell Limited, Unelko Corporation,

Diamon-Fusion International Inc. (DFI), Optitune Oy, Arkema Group Co., Ltd, Fenzi S.p.a.,

3M Co and others. Major companies are developing advanced technologies and launching new products in order to stay competitive in the market. Other competitive strategies include mergers & acquisitions and new product developments. For instance, in 2017, Koninklijke DSM N.V. launched its new anti-soiling (AS) coating for photovoltaic (PV) solar glass. The new coating provides a unique combination of anti-soiling and anti-reflective properties.
