The aerospace coatings market is projected to reach USD 1.98 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.90% between 2017 and 2022. Aerospace coatings are used by various end users, such as commercial aviation, military aviation, and general aviation. These coatings are used as exterior and interior coatings during both original equipment manufacturing as well as maintenance, repairing, and overhauling of equipment. These coatings offer high fuel efficiency, lower down noise and weight, and increase the safety of the equipment. They also extend renovation time intervals of equipment. The demand for aerospace coatings has increased in the recent years due to their increased consumption in the Asia-Pacific region. This increased consumption of the aerospace coatings in the region can be attributed to growing population in the region, which has led to rise in the number of aircraft. This, in turn, has contributed to the growth of the market for aerospace coatings in the region.
