Mirror Coatings Market Segment Analysis – Mirror surface
Silver segment accounted for significant share in the mirror coatings market in the year 2020. They are also the most preferred surface in the construction and architectural industry. Silver coating is also preferred in cosmetics and the construction industry as they give a warmer and accurate image as compared to other coatings. Silver coating gives a more quality finish and lasts for a long time. In the visible and infrared spectral regions, Silver provides high reflectance, making it an excellent option for broadband applications that cover several spectral regions. Protective coatings decreases the propensity of silver to tarnish, but the coating also works best in conditions of low humidity.
Mirror Coatings Market Segment Analysis – Technology
Powder based technology held the significant share in mirror coatings market in the year 2020. It is also estimated to record the highest growth and lead the market for technology. This is linked to the increase in demand for powder coating in the solar power industry, which has preference for advanced materials. The solar industry has been growing rapidly in the recent years, which has eventually increased the demand for powder based mirror coating.
Mirror Coatings Market Segment Analysis – End-User Industry
