Global Composite Coatings Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2033

The global composite coatings market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 2 Billion by the end of 2033 by growing at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2033. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 1 Billion in the year 2022. The primary growth factor of the market growth in the forecast period is the increased utilization of composite coatings in the packaging industry. The boom in the packaging industry is expected to generate lucrative opportunities for the key players in the composite coatings market. As of 2022, the revenue catered by the global packaging industry every year was calculated to be approximately USD 500 billion. Packaging is very crucial in the food sector as it prevents spoilage of the food inside. The packaging industry uses composite coatings to manufacture packaging films by adding plasticizers and additives to enhance the shelf life of food products.


Composite coatings are mostly used in the packaging industry for waterproofing and thermal barriers for safety. Thus, the increase in the number of packaging manufacturing industries is expected to increase the adoption rate of composite coatings in the future. As per a recent study done in 2022, the total number of packaging manufacturing companies operating in the world was counted to be around 100,000 with 5 million job opportunities. Packaging is used in various sectors including agriculture, healthcare, personal care, electronics, and industrial goods. The packaging protects the products from thermal and mechanical damage during manufacturing, transport, and distribution. To avoid this composite coating is very useful as it comprises layers of protection that use paper, foil, or plastic additives to prevent damage. The leakage and spillage problems are more when manufacturing and transporting liquid or semi-solid forms of cosmetic and personal care products. The composite packaging comes in handy in these situations.

Global Composite Coatings Market Segmentation

The global composite coatings market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by techniques into brazing, electroless plating, laser melt injection, and others. Out of these segments, the brazing segment is estimated to garner the largest market share. This technique allows giving a tough and high resistance during the coating process compared to the other techniques. The brazing method provides water resistance and corrosion resistance to the surface. This is also believed to protect from damage caused by UV rays, scratches, heat, and fire. As the composite coating is lightweight and used in the aerospace industry, the brazing technique is applied in the automobile, aerospace, and defense sector to get a perfect result. All these factors together are estimated to boost the market growth. As per the reports, the aerospace sector made a revenue of over USD 700 billion in 2021 increasing by about 5% from the year 2020 around the world.

The global composite coatings market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-users into aerospace & defense, industrial, medical, food industry, oil & gas, transportation, and others. The oil & gas segment is expected to garner a significant share among these segments.

Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
