Optical coatings technologies and global markets

  1. 1. Optical Coatings: Technologies and Global Markets |RnRThis BCC study analyzes the status of global markets for optical coatings. Opticalcoatings may be devices, but more typically are a value-added feature of an opticalelement such as a lens or a digital display. Many elements are fabricated and coated involume and thus have low prices and margins.Innovation is critical for revenue growth inthe coatings industry. The markets with the highest margins and fastest growth forcoatings are new applications, where coatings offer a new advantage, and areas wherethe coating designer and processor may have an advantage. Mass production of devicesdrives down prices and trims margins.Custom coating design opportunities support a fragmented but consolidating industry. The economic recession of 2007 to 2009 lead to larger, better capitalized firms buyingout smaller entities. The military market remains an important one for optics due to theadvent of remote warfare means such as unmanned vehicles and robots. Machine visionoptics for the semiconductor industry remains a high margin market.The miniaturization in medical procedures offers opportunities for innovative coatings. The transportation applications are growing as vehicle designs include cameras, displaysand other optical systems. Growth in the telecom sector continues to be slow as theextension of fiber toward the end user remains slow. Coatings for solar panels representa growing market.
