Sales of Mirror Coatings from 2016-2020 Vs Market Projections for 2021-2031

Historically, from 2016 to 2020­ use of mirror coatings expanded significantly, with major powerhouses such as the U.S. and China generating bulk of overall demand. Over the years, numerous end-use industrial applications have been recorded for mirror coatings.

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), total solar energy consumption amounted to over 584 GW, with Asia Pacific accounting for bulk of overall usage (331 GW) as of 2019. Increasing environmental consciousness has prompted this shift, causing an increase in global solar cells manufacturing.

Hence, demand for mirror coatings for solar cell production has increased, contributing to the bulk of global demand. According to Fact.MR, the global mirror coatings market is slated to expand at over 6% CAGR from 2021 to 2031.

How is Increased Solar Power Reliance Heightening Mirror Coatings Demand?

Globally, solar energy deployment is surging rapidly. As per the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), uptake of solar energy surged by 42% in the previous decade across the U.S. alone. As of 2020, over 230,000 Americans work in the solar industry at more than 10,000 companies.

Furthermore, the International Energy Agency (IEA) estimated that concentrated solar power generation increased by around 34% in 2019, resulting in a cumulative generation amount of 629 GW. Hence, demand for mirror coatings to manufacture solar cell panels is increasing, generating credible growth opportunities.

Why Do Humidity Considerations Pose a Challenge to Mirror Coatings?

While mirror coatings have become highly popular amidst their extensive applications across such key industries as renewable energy generation, there are certain impediments to its expansion, particularly with respect to certain technologies.

Water-based mirror coatings are of special concern, as they may be rendered ineffective across humid atmospheres, which already witness heightened levels of moisture accumulation. Excessive moisture across mirror-coatings may lead to corrosion of the end-use material, thus limiting their uptake.

Is the Cosmetics Industry Influencing Mirror Coating Sales?

As beauty trends become increasingly prominent, the global cosmetics industry is experiencing a wave of innovative product launches which are customized according to consumers’ needs and aspirations. Increased cosmetics usage has paved the way for enhanced uptake of associated accessories, including mirrors.

Countries such as China, India, Vietnam and Thailand offer promising growth opportunities for mirror coatings as they represent the bulk of global cosmetics usage in the 21st century. High preference for concave mirrors is inclining demand for appropriate coatings, as these offer greater application accuracy due to their curved designs.
