Low Friction Coatings Market, By Product (Polytetrafluoroethylene, Molybdenum Disulfide), By Applica

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1956750


The Low Friction Coatings Market to witness promising growth owing to the growing demand for medical device-appropriate coating in recent years. Increasing demand from applications including aerospace and defense, automobile & transportation, general engineering, energy, food & healthcare is expected to drive the growth of the market.

As environmental constraints on the use of lubricants are growing tighter and the expenses connected with disposal are increasing, there is an increasing demand for low friction thin film coatings that enable surfaces to rub against each other with decreased friction and wear. Hence the use of a small coefficient of friction coating to enhance the tribological characteristics of metal cutting and forming instruments and constantly expanding machine components such as sliding bearings, seals and valves.

Segment Insights

Low friction coatings reduce the tendency to stick and pick up material from the counter surface significantly reducing downtime for cleaning. Therefore, in the forming of tool apps, anti-adhesive agents may be totally omitted.

Demand for low-friction coatings has increased considerably in recent years as it helps to improve surface characteristics in terms of wettability, corrosion resistance, adhesion, and wear resistance. The increasing use of low-friction coatings in different sectors has also been expected to drive market growth in the near future.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Growing automobile sector
  • Strict environmental regulations
  • Growing demand for medical device-appropriate coating
