The transparent conductive coating (TCC) market is anticipated to grow at a moderate CAGR during the forecast period, i.e. 2020-2028. For smooth and equal flow of current, transparent conductive coatings are being used in various electronic devices such as liquid-crystal displays, OLEDs, touchscreens and photovoltaic.
When applied on any surface, the conductive coating helps in removing any static charge and helps prevent dust from settling on that surface area. With the introduction of wide-band-gap semi-conductor films in the market, the global transparent conductive coating market is anticipated to grow significantly over the forecast period.

The market for global transparent conductive coating market is segmented by structure, material, layers, application, end user and by region. Based on material, the market is segmented into inorganic and organic. The organic material segment is estimated to hold the leading share as it is characterized by being cost effective and also by its ability to act as a protective transparent layer against the infrared light.
Geographically, the global transparent conductive coating market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa region. It is highly being used in the Asia Pacific region as a result of the presence of numerous manufacturers of electronic devices which require the use of transparent conductive coatings.
With the enhancement in quality of transparent conductive films, there has been a significant growth that has been observed in the use of these films and coatings. Rise in demand for various electronic items globally along with the advancement in technology has created the need among the manufacturers of electronic devices to deploy transparent conductive coatings, which in turn is anticipated to drive the growth of the global transparent conductive coating market. For instance, the introduction of organic transparent conductive coating that are made using carbon nanotubes and graphene layers provide protection from the harmful infrared radiations. These can greatly enhance the usability of the product that utilizes this coating.
However, limitations on the usage of conductive polymers by the Government of nations worldwide with respect to the growing environmental concerns have restricted the growth of the transparent conductive coating market to a great extent. Besides this, the transparent conductive coating is quite fragile and may tend to break easily. The transparent conductive coating made of indium tin oxide has some major issues like lattice mismatch and stress-strain constraints. As a result, these elements, along with a high cost are the major reasons to lower the market growth.
