DUBLIN, Aug. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The "The Global Market for Durable Water Repellent (DWR) Coatings 2024-2034" report has been added to's offering.

This report delves into the world of DWR Coatings, analyzing their chemistry, properties, application processes, and environmental considerations.

In the ever-evolving landscape of surface coatings, Durable Water Repellent (DWR) Coatings have emerged as a transformative solution. These coatings create hydrophobic surfaces that possess the unique ability to repel water while allowing the passage of water vapor.

The driving forces behind the growth of DWR Coatings are twofold: the increasing demand for water-resistant fabrics and the imperative to extend the longevity of buildings by preventing water damage and the growth of mold.

Among the various chemistries, fluoropolymers like PTFE stand out for their exceptional water repellency and non-reactive nature, although environmental concerns have paved the way for alternatives such as hydrocarbons, silicones, nanocoatings, bio-based options, and smart coatings.

Notably, textiles represent the largest application segment for these coatings, solidifying their role in diverse industries seeking effective water protection solutions.
