An optical coating is one or more thin layers of material deposited on an optical component such as a lens or mirror, which alters the way in which the optic reflects and transmitmarketintelreports.logos light. One type of optical coating is an antireflection coating, which reduces unwanted reflections from surfaces, and is commonly used on spectacle and photographic lenses. Another type is the high-reflector coating which can be used to produce mirrors which reflect greater than 99.99% of the light which falls on them. More complex optical coatings exhibit high reflection over some range of wavelengths, and anti-reflection over another range, allowing the production of dichroic thin-film optical filters.

Optical coatings are thin film layers which are coated on various substrates including glass, plastic, polymers and metal to improve the light transmissivity and reduce reflection. The report points out that the rapid growth of the global smartphone market, along with the huge demand for renewable energy, has propelled the growth of the global optical coatings market. Increasing popularity in construction activities coupled with rising use of optically coated glass in infrastructure development is expected to augment demand over the forecast period. However, fluctuating raw material price is expected to restrain development in the near future.

In terms of applications, the global optical coatings market has been segmented into defense/security, electronics, solar, infrastructure, and others. Increasing applications in the field of solar power generation, along with the rise in the usage of smartphones, will propel the growth of the market. The infrastructure segment has dominated the overall market and is anticipated to be the leading application segment in the coming years.
