The global Thermal Spray Coatings market size is expected to be worth around US$ 24.1 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Thermal Spray Coatings market size was valued at US$ 20.4 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.
The global market is anticipated to be driven by the increasing product application scope owing to advantages, such as wear and corrosion protection, low toxic gas emissions, thickness capability, and electrical resistance.
Thermal spraying is used to improve or restore the surface of a solid material. It can also be used for applying coatings to a wide range of components and materials for better resistance against cavitation, wear, abrasion erosion, and heat. Approximately, 40 to 45% of paints & coatings produced globally are used as protective and decorative paints in the architecture industry. These can be used either for existing or newly constructed structures including monuments, private offices, residential buildings, plants & factories, and public buildings.
China, India, and Indonesia are majorly contributing to the growth of the construction industry in Asia Pacific. The rising population coupled with rapid urbanization & industrialization, especially in the aforementioned economies, has encouraged governments to increase their construction spending and boost infrastructural development. Furthermore, the rising popularity of powder-based coatings owing to the low cost is also significantly contributing to the growth of the global coatings market. Various rules are applicable, in terms of the manufacturing of coatings, due to the carcinogenic and flammable nature of solvents.
However, powder-based coatings are eco-friendly as they contain no solvents and hence do not lead to Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which cause air pollution. The Covid-19 pandemic has severely disrupted supply chains and sharply curtailed product demand. Restriction in transportation and supply due to slowdown or halting of factories and partial or nationwide lockdowns in several countries to restrain the spread of the coronavirus are expected to have an adverse impact on market growth.
The ceramics segment dominated the market with a share of 31.4% in 2020 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Ceramics are used in almost all types of thermal spray coatings including High-Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF), water plasma, gas plasma, electric arc, flame, and powder flame spraying systems.
Increasing preference for high-performance ceramic coatings in various sectors including healthcare, aerospace & defense, fiber-optic communications, industrial goods, energy, and environmental protection is expected to drive industry growth over the forecast period. In addition, ceramic-based products are also used on tools, such as cast steel molds, iron ladles, and heat element protectors, to replace ceramic slurry and pure ceramic-coated tools.
The metals segment accounted for the second-largest revenue share in 2020 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 4.0% from 2021 to 2028. The segment growth is credited to the increasing scope of application in the automotive sector as thermal spray coatings provide external protection to automotive parts. In addition, the rising automotive production is expected to fuel segment growth over the forecast period. Metal thermal spray coating is also done on new bridges to offer additional corrosion protection to the structure.
Rising product demand from the automotive sector, mainly in the high-performance racing segment, is expected to increase its market penetration over the forecast period. Furthermore, extensive usage in the construction sector, as the product offers protection against corrosion, is anticipated to augment the market growth over the forecast period.
The aerospace application segment accounted for the highest revenue share of over 32% in 2020 owing to high product demand on account of its advantages, such as low toxic gas emissions, wear & corrosion protection, electrical resistance, and thickness capability. Expansion of the aerospace sector, particularly civil aviation, in the Asia Pacific region, predominantly in India and China, on account of increasing consumer disposable income is expected to have a positive impact on the market over the forecast period.
However, the global pandemic is restraining the industry growth due to order cancellations, a slowdown in manufacturing operations, restrictions on supply & transport, and on the movement of passengers. This, in turn, is further projected to hamper the product demand, thereby limiting the market growth. The industrial gas turbine segment also held a significant revenue share in the past and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR from 2021 to 2028.
Thermal spray coatings protect gas turbine components from wear, corrosion, and friction. In addition, they help extend the life of these components. High demand for gas turbines in China and India to promote fuel diversification and reduce the dependence on coal plants is expected to drive the segment growth. The rising application scope of gas turbines in locomotives, ships, helicopters, tanks, and motorcycles is expected to augment product demand over the forecast period. A gas turbine is known to be a multi-fuel engine as it can use all types of combustible liquids and gases, which drives their demand in various industries.
The plasma spray technology segment led the global market with a revenue share of more than 32% in 2020. The segment is estimated to expand further at the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028. A major advantage of using plasma spray coating is its ability to spray a wide range of materials, such as metals and ceramics, on both large and small components. The process provides temperature management, clearance control, electrical conductivity & resistivity, and resistance against corrosion, heat & oxidation, and wear.
This process is used on printing rolls, gas turbines, industrial diesel engine piston rings, and oil & gas machinery. Over the past few years, the oil & gas industry has seen tremendous advances in technology, related to estimating, finding, and production of oil and gas. Such technological advancements are expected to positively have a positive impact on segment growth.
Flame spray is the second-largest technology segment and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2021 to 2028. The process is often used as a cost-effective alternative for ceramic and metallic coatings. The flame spraying process is used in applications, such as bridges, offshore platforms, and LPG bottles. The upcoming construction projects in countries, such as Malaysia, India, and the U.S., are expected to have a positive impact on the segment growth.
North America accounted for the highest revenue share of over 28% in 2020 and will retain its leading position throughout the forecast years. This growth can be credited to the presence of various aerospace and automotive companies in the region. In addition, the presence of various major product manufacturers including H.C. Starck Inc., Carpenter Technology Corporation, and Curtis-Wright Corporation, among others, has further intensified the competition among the players in the market.
The growing aerospace market in the U.S. along with the emergence of major aerospace companies in Mexico is expected to fuel the product demand in the regional market over the forecast period. The rapidly expanding automobile industry coupled with increased oil exploration activities in Mexico is also expected to drive the market growth. Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast years. The growth can be attributed to the increasing product demand from the aerospace, automotive, and oil & gas industries in key economies, such as China and India.
The market in Europe is estimated to grow at a steady CAGR during the projected period. Increasing R&D expenditure in the pharmaceutical industry in Europe is expected to fuel the product demand during the forecast period. Huge potential for crude oil and natural gas in Russia coupled with the increasing deployment of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) by the manufacturers is expected to augment the market growth. Furthermore, the rapid expansion of automobile production in Austria, Hungary, and Romania is expected to fuel the market growth.
