Chemical surface treatment is a method for chemically modifying aluminum surfaces. This surface treatment is frequently applied before finishing processes, such as powder coating or anodizing. The chemical surface treatments include polishing, pickling, and chromatin/phosphating. The corrosion of aluminum is accelerated by chemical treatment. All chemical processes differ due to their fragile chemical conversion layers. The layers' thicknesses typically range from 0.01 to 1.25 meters. Therefore, unless post-treatments are used, these layers are insufficient for protecting against outdoor corrosion. But they function well as an undercoat for paints, aluminum, and zinc coatings.
Chemical Surface Treatment Market Dynamics
- The high durability of the surface treatments drives the market
The global surface treatment market share has significantly increased through increased chemical surface treatment usage in a number of end-use industries, such as industrial machinery, packaging, transportation, and construction. The benefits of chemical surface treatment, such as electrical conductivity, wear, corrosion, and chemical resistance, are also driving up demand. Through the high durability of the surface treatments, they are becoming more common in several sectors, including construction, oil and gas pipeline, industrial machinery, and transportation.
- The rising number of infrastructure projects market growth
The market for chemical surface treatments will be fueled by the anticipated increase in automobile demand and the expansion of infrastructure projects in various emerging economies. Utility is increasingly used in construction for industrial and consumer use. Surface-treating chemicals are used during the construction of both public and private infrastructure. This is so that chemical processing can create properties resistant to wear and corrosion. Through the need to reduce friction and shield heavy machinery from wear, the development of heavy machinery is stimulating the market for chemical surface treatments.
- Industrialization's expansion through government initiatives increases consumer demand
The market for chemical surface treatment will continue to expand in the coming years due to the numerous efforts made by governments of various regions for industrialization expansion. To encourage foreign investment, which can subsequently enhance the country's industrial sector in the coming years, the government is implementing several support programs, including the i12 financial assistance and incentive program. In its budget for 2021, the government allocated USD 45.3 billion for stimulus measures. A rise in demand for machinery and equipment and, consequently, lubricants will result from using this money to upgrade infrastructure related to energy, agriculture, transportation, housing, water and sanitation, and digital infrastructure.
The use of new technologies reduces environmental effects and creates expansion
The market share for surface treatment chemicals is the creation of cutting-edge technologies to lessen the environmental impact of traditional automobile surface treatment processes. The introduction of environmentally friendly pre-coating chemical conversion treatment agents for auto bodies by several paint manufacturers in recent years may help reduce the production of hazardous materials and industrial waste. Increased residential construction and high spending on home improvement projects will also increase the need for surface treatment in building, enabling concrete surfaces to reach the desired durability.
- Stringent government regulations limit the market growth
The market for chemical surface treatment will face difficulties through stringent government regulations regarding higher levels of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions during the process. Lowering production-related emissions of dangerous chemicals, preventing the release of new, dangerous chemicals onto the market, standardizing safety testing procedures, guaranteeing test quality to prevent redundant testing, and avoiding non-tariff trade barriers.
- The rising cost of operational
The market for chemical surface treatments is anticipated to face challenges due to the high chemical consumption caused by low quality. As, chemicals are expensive and not everyone can afford them, fewer people can purchase them. As a result, the market for chemical surface treatment will face growth challenges.
