The Global Market for Durable Water Repellent (DWR) Coatings 2024-2034

Durable Water Repellent (DWR) Coatings create hydrophobic surfaces that repel water but allow water vapor to pass through. Fluoropolymers like PTFE are the most common type of chemistry used for DWR coatings due to their non-reactivity and excellent water repellency, but environmental concerns are shifting focus to hydrocarbons, silicones, nanocoatings, bio-based alternatives and smart coatings. Textiles are the largest application segment. Major factors driving growth are demand for water-resistant fabrics and the need to extend building lifespans by preventing water damage and mould growth.
