Aerospace coating is a high performance coating material. it is designed to resist temperatures fluctuation, variable air pressure, and different air instability. Some of the most important features of aerospace coating include, protection versus temperature fluctuations, protection against Intense UV exposure at higher altitudes, Chemicals attack (such as fuel, cleaning chemicals, hydraulic fluid), humid conditions and Corrosion
On the basis of end user application, the global aerospace coating market can be divided in three broad categories namely Commercial aerospace coating, Military aerospace coating, and general aviation aerospace coating. With more than 50% market share commercial aerospace coating held the largest segment in 2013.
Based on the user type, the global aerospace coating market can be further characterize in two broad categories namely original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO)
