The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has led to the development of new surface treatment chemicals for combating the virus. For instance, the MIRO UV-C product, developed by ALANOD GmbH, has effectively killed the COVID-19 virus and is used as a material for reflectors in sanitizing devices. Solvay’s supply of high-performance and medical-grade transparent film to Boeing for producing face shields has been another critical development in combating the COVID-19 virus.
Porter’s Five Forces framework is used to understand the level of competition within an industry and business strategy development. This framework is used to analyze a business situation and helps the company or an individual identify whether new products, services, or businesses can be profitable. The threat of new entrants refers to the risk which new competitors pose to the existing competitors in an industry. Porter’s analysis is helpful to determine if a new competitor has the potential to threaten an established company in a specific sector.
Global Surface Treatment Chemicals Market Dynamics
Drivers: Growing Demand for Various Types of Surface Treatment Chemicals
The surface treatment chemicals market is expected to witness high growth due to the rising plating business. This can be attributed to their ability to enhance/reduce photosensitivity, striping of paints and other tough stains, electroplating the metals’ surfaces, and corrosion curing. In terms of base materials, surface treatment for plastics is expected to grow at a rapid rate. This can be attributed to the increasing usage of plastics in the automotive and aerospace industries. At present, nearly one-third of the total components of an automobile are plastic. They help in weight reduction and increment in fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Examples of such plastics used in cars are polypropylene, polyurethane, polyamides, and polyvinyl chlorides. Plastics are less prone to corrosion as compared to metals, thus increasing the life of the vehicle.
Besides automotive, the aerospace industry has also been witnessing the increasing usage of plastics, as plastics help in weight reduction, increasing fuel efficiency, improve corrosion resistance, impact resistance, chemical resistance, and durability. The plastics used in the aerospace industry are polyetheretherketone (PEEK), polyether ketone (PEKK), thermosetting polyimide, polyamide-imide (PAI), polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), and carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP), among others. Plastics are used for interior applications of aircrafts such as air ducts, cabin partitions, overhead luggage bins, and floor panels, sensor-based applications such as avionics sensor plates, ventilation impeller blades, and component mounting brackets. In structural applications, parts such as wing ribs and spars, fuel tank covers, pylon fairings, radomes, and landing gear hubcaps are composed of plastics.

Restraints: Strict environmental norms from the developed nations
Surface treatment chemicals have been polluting the environment by releasing harmful chromium contents, such as hexavalent chromium. Therefore, various regulatory bodies such as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and REACH regulate the usage of surface treatment chemicals. The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) prohibits the use of hexavalent chromium in electric home appliances, and automotive parts have been prohibited by the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS). As a result, these factors are restraining the growth of the surface treatment chemicals market.
Opportunities: Emerging applications and significant growth in the emerging countries
Surface treatment chemicals have been witnessing increasing demand from new and emerging applications such as glass and wood industries. Glass surfaces are coated for improving safety and stability. In this regard, Linde provides glass surface treatment through its HYDROPOX flame treatment process, which increases the brilliance of the glass, eliminates seams and edges, and heals microcracks and failures. Inwood, the surface treatment is done to protect the wooden surfaces from moisture and make their appearance deeper and more prosperous. Some of the recent wood finishing techniques are surface finishing, penetrating finishing, dyes, varnish, lacquer, shellac, oil finishes, stains, and water-based finishes. KRUSS GmbH provides surface treatment solutions for wooden surfaces. The growing industrialization, especially the automotive sector in emerging economies, such as China, India, and South Korea, has propelled the demand for surface treatment chemicals.
