Thermal Spray Coatings Market Analysis:

Thermal spray costing refers to a coating process that uses powder coating materials in order to coat a surface. These materials are in powdered format and in order to spray them on surfaces, they are first melted in droplets and after that sprayed at a high velocity. Thermal spray coating is utilized on a wide range of components and products that operate in adverse surroundings where corrosion, erosion, wear and tear, and heat occur regularly and eventually decrease the life of the component. Thermal spray coating prevents damage of any kind from environmental factors and protects the component or complete product from any kind of damage. Demand for thermal spray coating has been growing significantly and has caused a major rise in the growth of the market.

The growing demand for thermal spray coatings from the automotive sector is the major factor driving market growth

The automotive sector has been using thermal spray coating for multiple parts of the vehicle and its ever-growing applications in the automotive sector are driving the market growth. Growing consumer purchasing power and improving the standard of living are causing a major rise in the purchase of vehicles. People across the globe are extensively purchasing vehicles and this is causing a massive rise in the production of automobiles. This number is continuously rising due to growing economies and improved road infrastructure across the globe, which is motivating people to invest in automobiles. Vehicles require thermal spray coating massively for multiple components but most importantly for the engine. The engine of a car experiences massive heat and other adverse environmental conditions. In order to prevent the engine from getting damaged, automobile manufacturers are incorporating and adopting thermal spray coating methods extensively. These factors are causing an exponential rise in the demand for thermal spray coatings and facilitating market growth.

Difficulty related to assessment and expensive apparatus to hamper the market growth

It is extremely difficult to assess the material has properly absorbed the coating or is it properly applied as there is no method other than visual assessment. The visual assessment also cannot ensure completely that the coating is applied properly and absorbed as well. Further, the thermal spray coating procedure requires an extremely high priced apparatus which causes a major strain on firms and increases expenditure.

Growing applications in multiple industries, rising environmental concerns, and growing demand for longer PLC to create lucrative market opportunities

Thermal spray coating is experiencing a major adoption across various industries like heavy machinery industries, civil & military airliners, aerospace, automotive, and others. Increasing the application scope of gas turbines in tanks, locomotives, motorcycles, ships, and helicopters is creating a huge growth opportunity as gas turbines require extensive thermal spray coatings. The automotive sector uses thermal spray coating to coat multiple parts like body, fenders, moldings, suspension systems, and engines. Technological advancement in the automotive sector has led to increased automation and development of more environmentally friendly, smart hybrid automobiles. These hybrid vehicles extensively use thermal spray coating in order to keep the product intact. With the rise in demand for hybrid cars, the demand for thermal spray coating by the automotive sector will eventually increase and create growth opportunities. Further, growing environmental hazards from byproduct emissions from chromium plating are causing a positive shift towards thermal spray coating. The process of hard chromium plating causes emissions of carcinogens such as hexavalent chromium. These byproducts cause serious environmental threats and degrade the surroundings owing to which stringent government regulations are being formulated across the globe. These regulations will increase the demand for thermal spray coating solutions massively and will create lucrative market opportunities.
