The global coat equipment market size was valued at USD 18.22 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 18.78 billion in 2023 to USD 27.63 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period.

Coating equipment comprises industrial machinery designed to apply coatings onto surfaces. These coatings encompass paints, varnishes, powders, liquids, and other protective or decorative substances. Various industries utilize this equipment, including automotive, aerospace, construction, electronics, furniture, packaging, among others, as coatings protect them from rust, decay, and corrosion, extending their lifespan and reducing maintenance and replacement costs.

Coatings play a crucial role in protecting the surfaces of electric cars against rust, enhancing their appearance and quality. Moreover, the increasing demand from end-users across various industries, including the Electric Vehicle (EV) sector, is another significant factor driving market growth.

Furthermore, governments worldwide are introducing various initiatives to promote electric vehicles. These initiatives encompass subsidies for installing charging stations and budget allocations to enhance electric battery production, addressing climate change issues. These factors are expected to propel the growth of the coating equipment market.


Halted Manufacturing Activities Restricted Market Growth during COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic severely disrupted the supply chain network and reduced demand for industrial products, significantly impacting market growth. However, the demand for products from the pharmaceutical industry increased, supporting the market's growth. The heightened sales of hygiene products worldwide during this period also accelerated market growth. Nevertheless, the pandemic adversely affected end-user industries such as footwear and foam.

Moreover, it resulted in the suspension of operations in a majority of production plants for several months due to lockdowns in various parts of the world aimed at preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Demand for coat equipment in the aerospace and automotive industries declined due to reduced travel, as many individuals spent more time at home due to the pandemic. The decline in the export and import of vehicles and electronics further constrained market growth. For example, according to the information portal Marlines, car sales in China decreased by 10% in 2021 compared to 2020. The electronics and aerospace sectors also reported a decline in retail sales and disruptions in their supply chains, significantly affecting global market growth.


Technological Advancements in Equipment to Bolster Market Growth

Major players such as Axalta Coating Systems Ltd., Anest Iwata Corporation, Nordson Corporation, and IHI Corporation are actively engaged in providing technologically advanced coat equipment for various industries, including the automotive, transportation, and aerospace sectors. Key market trends include the integration of automation and Industry 4.0, the introduction of eco-friendly and high-performance coating solutions, and the implementation of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. Additionally, significant investments in research and development programs are contributing to the advancements in the market.

  • For example, in November 2022, J. Wagner GmbH introduced the new FlexControl Smart coating equipment, featuring an advanced control system for powder coating equipment. The equipment is equipped with Internet of Things (IoT) technology and a robot control system. It offers several benefits such as an adaptive injection system, electronic control machine, ease of use, and quick start.

Moreover, major market players have expanded their production facilities to meet the increasing demand for coat equipment and enhance their market share. These factors represent the latest trends in the global market.

Rising Product Demand from Automotive Sector to Drive Market Growth

Electric vehicles represent one of the significant users of surface equipment. Coatings provide crucial protection to Electric Vehicle (EV) platforms and their components, safeguarding them from rust and other forms of damage. Moreover, coatings play a pivotal role in enhancing the aesthetic qualities of EVs. The escalating use of coatings on electric vehicles and electronic equipment is expected to drive the demand for coat equipment. Additionally, governments are actively promoting electric cars by subsidizing their purchase, encouraging the development of charging stations, and allocating funds for advancements in electric battery technology, aiming to address climate change issues. They are also setting targets for the deployment of electric vehicles and charging stations. Furthermore, the development of key technologies for electric cars leads to significant cost savings.

Moreover, the growth in the global automotive and electric vehicle sectors will subsequently drive the market's expansion. For instance, according to the World Motor Vehicle Production survey, electric motor sales in Europe experienced a 5.7% growth in 2022 compared to 2021. This factor is expected to propel the growth of the electric vehicle industry and consequently increase the demand for coat equipment. All the aforementioned factors are poised to boost the growth of the global market.


Presence of Low-Cost Substitutes to Restraint Market Growth

Alternative methods of achieving similar results, such as different surface treatments or types of coatings, can have a negative impact on the demand for traditional coat equipment. If these substitute technologies offer the same performance at a lower cost or with greater environmental benefits, they might impede the sales of coating machines. Equipment cost is a significant factor when considering the choice of coatings and application processes. Alternatives such as brushes and rollers are less expensive and, in some applications, outperform other equipment.

Therefore, the availability of low-cost alternatives may limit market development in certain applications. Moreover, high investment costs could restrict market growth. Additionally, the availability of low-cost products for specific applications and the introduction of affordable alternatives will facilitate their penetration into various end-user industries. These key factors are expected to constrain coat equipment market growth.
