As per a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global conformal coatings market for printed circuit boards is slated to reach a valuation of nearly US$ 15 Bn by 2031.

Conformal coatings are protective chemical coatings that protect electronic circuit boards from harsh environments that contain moisture, salt, or other contaminants. Conformal coatings ensure operational integrity of the electronic assembly by preventing it from voltage arcing, shorts, and static discharge. Generally, conformal coatings meant for protecting printed circuit boards (PCBs) are based on acrylic, silicone, polyurethane, epoxy, parylene, etc.

Conformal coatings are finding wide application in PCBs owing to their prevention in absorption of moisture and dust, contamination of surface due to airborne ionic materials, etc., which results in quick deterioration in the performance of PCBs.

Owing to the protection offered to high-performing electronics from environmental conditions impacting circuit performance leading to premature failure, demand for conformal coatings for PCBs is likely to grow positively over the coming years.
