Hard coating materials can be easily deposited by several deposition techniques including CVD and PVD. PVD is considered to be the most widely used technique across different industries. Cutting tools industry was the first to opt for PVD technology and is expected to continue the significant application of PVD technology in order to replace traditional deposition techniques.
Key factors supporting the demand for aforementioned techniques include less time intensity and greater durability. Moreover, major applications of these techniques are automotive, precision aerospace parts, industrial gas turbines and medical instruments. Use of hard coatings in the field of medical instruments and biomedicals in order to enhance the overall wear resistance as well as to boost biocompatibility of dental implants and prosthetics are some other key factors anticipated to augment the growth of global hard coatings market. Ceramic, metal, polymer and intermetallic are some of the most prevalent products in the global thermal spray coating industry. They are employed to several surfaces to achieve feasible and longer life spans under difficult operating situations. These coatings are widely used in the manufacture of high strength steels to be applied in LPG cylinders to avoid corrosion cracking. In addition, increasing scope in wear resistant coating, engineering coating, biomedical, automotive & aerospace, electronics, food processing, energy and semiconductors are some other key aspects anticipated to fuel the demand for hard coatings over the forecast period.
Increasing awareness among consumers regarding the benefits of hard coatings is a key factor fueling the demand for hard coatings across the globe. However, deposition techniques for the application of hard coatings need greater investments and are generally capital intensive in nature. These factors are considered to be some of the key restraints in the global corrosion coatings market. Rapid adoption of hard coatings in general manufacturing and other related end-use industries wherein the demand for high material performances are high, large scale hard coating techniques has brought a huge number of benefits.
