Recent Developments in the Global Surface Treatment Chemicals Market

  • In February 2022, PPG announced the acquisition of Arsonsisi, the powder coatings division. Arsonsisi is a prominent exporter of residential and commercial specialized powder coatings. The acquisition allows PPG to broaden its powder coatings portfolio in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). It also includes metallic bonding, one of the fastest expanding areas for powder coatings that are frequently utilized in specialized treatments for automobile, household, and general industrial uses.

  • In October 2021, Aalberts Surface Technologies GmbH announced a complete collaboration with Hoeller Electrolyzer GmbH in the domain of extremely effective electrolyzer surface treatment. The collaboration's objective was to substantially lower the expense of hydrogen generation while also increasing its accessibility. The extremely effective protracted coatings will be sprayed on in-line machines for massive yields in Lübeck, allowing Hoeller exposure to Europe's constrained manufacturing capacity.

  • In September 2021, Henkel demonstrated advanced coating technologies for electric vehicle (EV) battery production and aluminum pre-treatment for automobile exteriors at SURCAR 2021. Aluminum's strong protection against corrosion and thermoelectric conductance greatly enhance reprocessing. Henkel, a pioneer in adhesives, lubricants, and functional coatings for the automobile industry, facilitates a wider utilization of aluminum for enhanced quality, ecology, and operational effectiveness.

Automotives to be the Leading End-User Segment Between 2022-2031

Due to the surface treatments' greater stability, they are becoming more popular in several industries, such as automotive, construction, electrical and electronics, and coil industry.

The automotive segment is expected to be the largest among various end users during the forecast period (2022-2031). An increasing number of interior parts, including engines, gearboxes, and other movable items, are being treated with chemicals on their surfaces to increase their longevity and durability.

Additionally, surface treatment is necessary for exterior parts, such as the bodywork of vehicles, to improve aesthetics.

The global demand for surface treatment chemicals has increased due to the expanding automotive industry. As a result, some market players, such as Aalberts Surface Treatment, Chemetall GmbH, and Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, have been supplying surface treatment solutions to the automotive industry, resulting in healthy business relations across disciplines and driving healthy growth of surface treatment chemicals globally.
