Manganese Phosphate to emerge as a highly lucrative product in the upcoming years
Phosphate conversion coatings is the most commonly used coatings to treat aluminum, zinc and steel. Phosphate is an integral part of most of the finishing operations and serves various functions such as absorbing lubricants, promoting adhesion, enhancing appearance, and increasing corrosion resistance.
The phosphate conversion coatings available in the global market include products like Manganese Phosphate, Iron Phosphate, Zinc Phosphate. There are various proprietary formulations available for each, depending on their functional requirements.
According to the new research report by Future Market Insights, the global PCC market is anticipated to be dominated by Zinc Phosphate which holds a significantly higher market share of over US$ 2,100 Mn by the end of 2028.
However, the future projections for the market indicates a higher demand for Manganese Phosphate in the years coming ahead. Manganese Phosphate has an excellent oil-retentive properties for both corrosion resistance and lubricity, which is anticipated to boost its demand in the future.
The products have found most of its application in the automotive industry and recently in the residential industry too. The residential spending has multiplied due to population growth and urbanization.
PCC Market is the another market that will be introduced with eco-friendly measures
Coating technologies have a number of benefits attached to it. But the recent market scenario also depicts a sudden demand for the eco-friendly products in the market. The new coating processes are simpler, shorter and operate at lower temperature as compared to that of iron or zinc phosphate processes. Moreover, they perform well on all substrates such as zinc, steel and aluminum.
Now, the manufacturers of the pre-treatment coating products across the globe are found to be involved in the introduction of phosphorous-free pretreatment that can be utilized on multiple substrates and are also compatible with mild steel equipment. The phosphorus free makes the products environment friendly and also without any regulated heavy metals.
These environmental friendly moves also include initiatives to reduce emissions. The increasing focus of government organizations as well as industry participants to reduce the overall vehicle weight in the light of curbing emissions has gained significant momentum over the past years.
The goal can be achieved with the help of innovative phosphate conversion coatings which can synchronize with light-weight initiative. Many automotive OEMs and manufacturers have mandated the use of these coatings in order to reduce the weight of vehicles.
Availability of alternatives can serve as a serious threat to the global phosphate conversion coatings market
The shift towards eco-friendly coatings have created a new market for the products like nano-ceramic conversion coating. It is a phosphorus free coating type, which includes zirconium salt that acts as a basic ingredient to replace the traditional phosphate liquid.
The phosphate conversion coatings has a negative impact on the health of a person and also on the overall environment, thus changing the preferences of many. There is a need for environmental friendly and cost effective technology that can achieve comparable paint adhesion and corrosion resistance for ferrous and non-ferrous substrates and the lesser demand for phosphate conversion can result in a declining force on the global PCC market.
