Low friction coatings are being preferred over conventional lubricants, due to the ease of application and ability to perform under high pressure and temperature environment. Key end-use industries for these coatings include automotive & transportation, aerospace, general engineering, and food & healthcare.
The molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) coating type was the largest segment of the low friction coatings market
Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) was the largest segment of the market in 2015 and is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. Molybdenum disulfide is used as a dry lubricant coating and is applied in the form of a thin film on substrates. This thin film gives strong wear-resistant and low friction properties to the surface to which it is applied. MoS2 can withstand a temperature of more than 400oC and a high load. Therefore, MoS2 is preferred over PTFE in many end-use industries.
The automobile & transportation was the largest end-use industry of the low friction coatings market
Automobile & transportation was the largest segment of the low friction coatings market in 2015, followed by aerospace, general engineering, and food & healthcare. The increasing use of low friction coatings to reduce noise, vibrations, and emissions in automobiles has fueled the demand for these coatings across the globe. The low friction coatings market for the automotive industry is expected to witness high growth, due to their increasing use to improve fuel efficiency.
The growing demand for low friction coatings from China and India is expected to be a key factor for the growth of the market in Asia-Pacific
