Global Metal Finishing Chemicals Market to Reach $11.5 billion by 2026

Global Metal Finishing Chemicals Market Estimated at 9 billion US dollars in 2020, is expected to reach a revised size of US$11.5 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% over the analysis period.

Growth of the metal finishing market is closely tied to the pace of economic growth and the level of manufacturing activity, as well as end-use market dynamics, such as CAPEX investments in expansion and modernization of factories. In the pre-COVID period, growth has been driven by increasing demand for wear-resistant and durable products that continues to grow across various end-use industries and is expected to fuel the metal finishing chemicals market .

The market benefited from stable automotive production trends, robust demand for consumer electronics/home appliances and the parallel increase in production activity, steady recovery in the construction sector and the resulting improved business climate for markets and related technologies, including heavy equipment and machinery.

There was an increasing adoption of environmentally friendly measures to ensure compliance with the stipulated regulations. After the temporary halt in growth caused by the pandemic, the market will rebound given the already existing high commercial value of environmentally friendly industrial metal finishing chemicals like cleaners and degreasers.

Plating Chemicals, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% to reach US$4.5 billion at the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and the induced economic crisis, the growth of the cleaning chemicals segment is readjusted to a revised CAGR of 4.8% for the next 7-year period.

This segment currently accounts for a 25.9% share of the global metal finishing chemicals market. Copper plating chemicals are expected to experience strong growth in demand, primarily due to the increasing use of copper interconnect technology. The cleaning chemicals segment is expected to grow the fastest, driven by their increasing acceptance in several end-use sectors including industrial machinery, construction, aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, and electrical & l ‘electronic. Cleaning chemicals continue to see increasing demand, due to their ability to remove metal oxides, carbon char, lapping compounds, as well as oils and coolants that deposit on metal surfaces during metal finishing processes.

The US market is estimated at $2.2 billion in 2021, when China is expected to reach $1.8 billion by 2026

The metal finishing chemicals market in the United States is estimated at US$2.2 billion in 2021. The country currently accounts for a 24.27% share of the global market. Chinaworld’s second largest economy, is expected to reach an estimated market size of US$1.8 billion in 2026 with a CAGR of 6.6% over the analysis period.

Other notable geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each predicting growth of 2.2% and 2.5% respectively over the analysis period. In Europe, Germany is expected to grow at around 3.8% CAGR while the rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach US$1.9 billion at the end of the analysis period.

The United States remains a major market for metal finishing chemicals due to the presence of a large number of production facilities operated by automotive and electronics industry players. The European Metal Finishing Chemicals Market is expected to record stable growth driven by countries such as France, Spain and Italyand the steady growth observed in the manufacturing industry. Asia Pacific ranks as the fastest growing regional market, driven by industrial machinery, aerospace and automotive industries which are in their development stage.

Segment of conversion coatings to be achieved $2.4 billion by 2026

Conversion coatings are generally thin layers, which make the metal surface highly resistant to corrosion and allow the applied coatings to persist. Conversion coatings greatly improve the adhesive property of metal surface and also prevent degradation.

In the global conversion coatings segment, UNITED STATES, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will drive the CAGR of 3.8% estimated for this segment. These regional markets representing a combined market size of US$1.4 billion in the year 2020 will reach a projected size of US$1.9 billion at the end of the analysis period.

China will remain among the most dynamic in this group of regional markets. Led by countries such as Australia, Indiaand South Koreathe market of Asia Pacific should reach US$265.3 million by 2026, while Latin America will grow at a CAGR of 5.4% over the analysis period.
