Hydrophobic coatings is a class of coatings that repel water. These coatings have widespread applications in sectors including automotive, textile and leather, building and construction, electronics and telecommunication, healthcare and medical, optical, and power generation. Among these, automotive, building and construction, and consumer electronics are expected to drive the growth of hydrophobic coatings. It is observed that the industry is very competitive with many stakeholders, both global and regional having a stake. Companies entering this space require high capital investment along with a proven USP of the coating.
