Hydrophobic coatings can be easily applied over any substrate such as glass, metal, wood, and plastic irrespective of its composition and can also be applied to complex geometries. These coatings in building & construction application segment holds the largest share in 2015 and this segment is expected to maintain its lead throughout the forecast period. The market in building & construction application segment is driven by rise in modernization and improved standards of living.

The demand for hydrophobic coatings has increased owing to its exceptional properties such as resistant to water, corrosion, and abrasion; stable against bio-fouling, inorganic, and organic pollutants, and ability of self-cleanliness. The market has witnessed substantial growth during the past few years and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2%, in terms of value. These coatings can be applied to any substrate, which increases their adoption over other coatings in several applications such as building & construction, automotive, aerospace, marine, and others. However, long-term maintenance instability is the major hindrance for market growth.
In the year 2015, building & construction was dominant, in terms of value, occupying 25% market share.

Hydrophobic coatings also protect the building against aggressive environmental agents such as freeze/thaw attack, and provides resistance from corrosion and abrasion, which increases their adoption, especially in the building & construction application. Hydrophobic coatings in automotive application segment occupied around one-firth share in 2015, in terms of value, in the global hydrophobic coatings market.
