Optical coatings can be determined as thin layers of substance deposited on optical components such as lens or mirror. There are various types of metal coatings that are used in optical coatings such as silver, gold, aluminum, and others. Optical coatings can be applied to various different substrates such as plastic, metal, polymers, and glass in order to enhance light transmissivity and reduce reflection. Antireflection coatings are used in spectacle and photographic lenses which help in reducing unwanted reflections from lens surfaces.
Anti-reflective (AR) coating is one most widely used coatings on lenses, where less reflection is required. Anti-reflective coatings increase efficiency of transmission by decreasing Fresnel reflections off glass or on an applied part. Anti-reflective coatings are more resistant to environmental and physical damage, as compared to others. Anti-reflective serve various applications such as spectacles, astronomy, and others. Anti-reflective coatings increase efficiency of transmission by reducing Fresnel reflections off lens or on applied surface. Anti-reflective coatings are utilized in multiple end-use industries, such as defense, construction, and telecommunication.
Optical coatings help in increasing efficiency of energy generated from solar collectors owing to their anti-reflective properties, that would further cut down costs involved in production of solar energy. Growing investments in solar power sector in developing economies, such as India and China, and decreasing solar power costs are estimated to support solar power generation activities, in turn, increase demand for optical coatings during the forecast period.
Target audience for the global optical coating market includes optical coating manufacturers, optical coating raw material suppliers, optical coating dealers, optical coating suppliers, optical coating end-users, technology providers for optical coating, and others.
North America optical coating market is estimated to account for major share in terms of revenue in 2017, and is projected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period, owing to growing demand for optical coating from various sectors such as building, construction, solar, and defense industries in the countries in this region. Asia Pacific optical coating market is projected to register fastest growth in terms of revenue in next ten years.
