Retro-Reflective Materials Market: an overview
Retro-reflective materials are used to reflect the light with minimal scattering. In dark and low-light conditions, objects covered with retro-reflective material could be easily detected. Since inception, these materials are extensively used in automobile industry for decades to maintain road safety standards. These materials have no substitute, hence growth rate of the retro-reflective materials is substantially high. Moreover, owing to the industrial safety regulations has hugely benefitted the market growth and has added value over the past half-decade. Increase in awareness in industries to enhance industrial safety by incorporating retro-reflective materials on clothing and industrial apron to ensure employees safety is set to bolster the demand in long-run. Furthermore, retro-reflective materials are also utilized in substantial amounts in building & construction and infrastructure projects to reflect the solar radiation and to maintain the building temperature. Global retro-reflective materials market is forecast to witness absolute growth at a higher digit CAGR between 2020 and 2030. Rising demand from industrial safety, road safety and buildings and construction has positively impacted retro-reflective materials market.
Demand Surge from Film, Sheets & Tapes is set to boost the Market
Film, sheet & tapes and paints & coatings are the two main available product types in the retro-reflective materials market. Of which, Film, sheet & tapes has found attractive market share in the global retro-reflective materials market owing to their high volume utilization almost all the automotive industry, industrial safety equipment etc.,. Followed by the film, sheet & tapes application paints & coatings account for less than one-fourth of the market share. This application is gaining market traction and is set to grow at a much faster rate owing to its growing application in terms of paints on vehicles which provides dual action by protecting the metal body of the vehicle from corrosion and adds safety by retro-reflectivity.
COVID-19 to Shatter the Retro-Reflective Materials Market
COVID-19 or Novel corona virus has not only shattered the movement of the people but also the production and trade of the major products in the market including retro-reflective products. Increased production of essentials and force majeure of inessential products has disrupted the retro-reflective materials market. Demand shrink owing to the lockdown across the regions and shattered supply owing to the cease of trade of raw materials required to manufacture of retro-reflective materials. The market is set to remain the same till 2022 owing to the inflation across the regions. Reduction in consumption and output growth is set to hamper the retro-reflective materials market. Pandemic has hit the economy hard in the gut which is set to reflect on the global economy.
