Silicate Coatings Market Segment Analysis - By Type
Pure Silicate Coating held the largest share of more than 35% in Silicate Coating Market in 2020. Pure silicate mineral coating bound only with mineral binding agents and formed by mixing potash water glass, potassium silicate (K2SiO3xH2O) with lime, quartz-based fillers, and mineral pigments. The Pure silicate coating consists of two components, a color powder in dry or paste form and the liquid binder water glass. The pure silicate coating is considered extremely durable, has antifungal properties, weather-resistant, and provides a protective layer against exhaust gases and fumes. Moreover, the pure silicate paint remains intact with the substrate and protects it for decades. Due to which they are widely used in building especially architectural buildings. Therefore, the above properties provided by pure silicate coating and the growing adoption of the plasma polymerization process further drive the market’s growth.
Silicate Coatings Market Segment Analysis - By Binding Agent
Inorganic segment held the largest share of more than 55% in the Silicate Coatings market in 2020. Inorganic binders such as Sodium pyrosilicate, Trimethylsilyl chloride, and potassium silicates in aqueous solutions have physical and chemical properties that are useful in bonding and coating applications. Potassium silicates in Silicate coating makes them highly durable and solvent in water. Due to their properties, silicate coatings provide an excellent decorative and protective coating for buildings & metal surfaces. Furthermore, these binders make coating non-toxic, resistant to heat, and non-flammable. The inorganic binder enables light rays to directly, meet the pigment particles, and reflect from there, which causes the coatings to actually shine. Due to the above properties, inorganic binding agents are widely used in the silicate coating market.
Silicate Coatings Market Segment Analysis - By End-Use Industry
Building & Construction segment held the largest share of more than 30% in the Silicate Coatings market in 2020. Silicate Coating is widely used in building and construction industries for reducing the condensation of water on building surfaces, which reduces the risk of infestation of algae and fungi. Moreover, the silicate coating also protects the building from acid rain, which is a rising concern due to an increase in air pollution. Furthermore, the silicate coating has excellent heat resistance properties and roof cooling ability, which increases the longevity of the structure and reduces the energy cost to maintain the building temperature. The rise in the construction and building industry due to the increase in the middle-class population and urbanization is driving the demand for Silica Coating Market. As per the International Finance Corporation report in 2019, the global construction of the industry is projected to grow by 4.2% from 2018 to 2023. Such growth in the construction industry will further drive the demand Silicate Coating Market.
Silicate Coatings Market Segment Analysis - By Geography
APAC held the largest share in the global Silicate Coating Market of more than 40% in 2020. The rising demand for construction, automobile, and rapid industrialization is driving the demand for silicate coating in the region. The growth of industries can be attributed to rising disposable income, growing foreign investments, growing demand for plasma polymerization, and favorable conditions for manufacturing units such as the availability of a huge workforce, less regulation, and a huge consumer base. All the above factors are driving the demand for construction and manufacturing units, which in turn is driving the demand for Silicate coating. As silicate coating is used in industries to protect their machine and equipment from a chemical spill, constant wear, corrosion, and heat.

Silicate Coatings Market Drivers
Eco-friendly nature of Silicate Coating is Driving the Markets Growth
Silicates are the ultimate eco-friendly coatings, as they do not contain any harmful Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Silicate coatings are alkali metal silicates that are produced from natural elements like sand and alkali. Silicate coating is purely water-borne and is solvent-free, which enable them to be more eco-friendly and emit less VOC than other coatings, which are solvent-borne. Moreover, Sodium pyrosilicate, and Trimethylsilyl chloride based coatings are less toxic, odorless, and have no VOC, which makes them the perfect choice for interior coating especially in a residential building or architectural building. Furthermore, growing awareness regarding the adverse effect of VOC will drive contractors or people to use silicate coating which offers similar properties but has no VOC content and less toxic. This will further drive the growth of the market.
Growing Building and Construction Sector in the Middle East Region Is Driving the Market Growth
One of the major factors that is driving the Silicate Coatings Market is the growth of the construction industry in the Middle East region, especially in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, and Saudi Arabia. Silicate Coating is used as a decorative coating in the building to enhance the look of the interiors. Moreover, the Middle East is a hot and dry region, where silicate coatings are widely used in the exterior and roof of the building to reflect heat and cool the internal temperature. Furthermore, the growing demand for green buildings to conserve energy is also driving the demand for silicate coatings. Therefore, an increase in building & construction activities will further drive the silicate coating in the region. For instance, as per BNC Network a private company, UAE invested a total of $53.8 billion in the construction industry in 2019, which rose by $1.2 billion in 2020 to reach $55 billion.
Silicate Coatings Market Challenges
Absorbs Water & Compatibility Issues with Primers
One of the issues with silicate, coatings are that it retains water which can impact the integrity of the concrete surface in the long term and compromises the building structure. To overcome this, an additional water repellent coating must be coated on the concrete surface, which further increases the overall cost. The other issue with silicate coating is it's not compatible with tiefgrund. Tiefgrund is an interior and exterior-based solvent-free primer, formulated for firming the sandy and interior & exterior mineral bases. Therefore, the above issues act as challenging factors to the growth of the silicate coating market.
