“Conformal Coating Market is expected to reach USD 1,081 million by 2025 at CAGR of 6.0%. Conformal coatings are a type of protective coatings of 25-75µm thickness that are applied to printed circuit boards (PCBs) and other electronic components to protect them from harsh environments such as dust, solvents, and moisture, humidity, and high temperature. Conformal coatings increase the operational performance of PCBs assemblies by maintaining long-term surface insulation.
