Mirror coatings are used to create effects on spectacle lenses ranging from light shimmer to a total mirror coating. These coatings are created by vacuum deposition of interference layer and can be obtained by constructive interference. The perceived intensity of the coating on the mirror is dependent on the basic tint of the lens. The global mirror coatings market is registering a significant growth in the market, owing to the increasing use of mirrors in various end-user industries and applications, as mirrors has become an integral part in various applications such as automotive, transportation, housing and others.
Global Mirror Coatings Market – Analysis and Forecast (2018-2024)
Mirror coatings are used to produce effects on spectacular lenses from light shimmer
to a total mirror coat. These coatings are produced by the interference layer vacuum
deposition and can be accomplished by constructive interference. The intensity of
the perceived coating on the mirror depends on the basic tint of the lens. As mirrors
are an integral part of various applications, including automotive, transport, housing
and so on, the global mirror coatings market registers substantial market
development due to the increased use of mirrors in various end-user industries and
The mirrors are classified into polyurethane, epoxy, acrylic and other products based
on resin type. Both, due to its property of providing extremely long-lasting, are
predicted to be the highest CAGR group in the coming years. In addition, increased
use of polyurethane coatings in commercial buildings, decorations, solar panels, and
other buildings lead to the growth of the industry.
The mirror coating market is categorized based on technology as solvent-based,
water-based, nano, and other products. Of all these, the fastest growth in the
market in the forecast period is expected for nano-coating. This is due to the
increasing preference in the solar power industry for advanced materials, which is
pushing manufacturers to invest in more innovative solution technologies that result
in market development. In addition, these coatings provide protection against
rusting, microbial attacks, corrosion-protecting substrate, and other products,
contributing to a growing market demand for nano-coated mirrors.
The market of mirror coatings is divided into silver, aluminum and other items based
on a substrate. The most critical aspect of these products is aluminum coating in the
overall market. The mirrors covered in aluminum are cheaper and easier to maintain.
However, aluminum-coated mirrors represent 90 percent of the visible range of light
