Ceramic coatings are the inorganic materials processed and used at high temperatures. The ceramic coating materials are made of silica, alumina, alumina-magnesia, silicon nitride, silicon carbide, and other compositions. The ceramic coatings are applied on the metal surfaces to protect it from the corrosion other wear and tear. These coatings are used in the automobile & transportation industry due to the anti-corrosion properties or the resistances leading to the heat and abrasion. Ceramic coatings offer’s the finished polish from the external body of cars bit by bit replacing wax. These coatings reduce static increase and ensures the value control in electronics applications.
According to study, “Global Ceramic Coatings Market Size Study, by Type (Oxide Coatings, Carbide Coatings, Nitride Coatings), by Technology (Thermal spray, PVD, CVD), by Application (Transportation & Automotive, Energy, Aerospace & Defense, Industrial Goods, Healthcare) and Regional Forecasts, 2017-2025 (USD Billion/Million)” the other key companies currently operating in global ceramic coatings market are Praxair Surface Technologies Inc., Bodycote Plc., APS Materials Inc., 3M, Oerlikon Surface Solutions AG, Ultramet Inc., Kurt J.

Based on type global ceramic coatings industry is segmented into carbide coatings, oxide coatings, nitride coatings and others(anti-microbial coating & carbon coating). Based on technology, market is segmented into Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD), thermal spray, electrophoretic deposition (EPD), dipping, sol gel processing, laser assisted techniques, packed diffusion, micro-oxidation, ionic beam surface treatment and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). The thermal spray segment is further sub-segmented into atmospheric plasma spraying (APS), wire flame spraying, vacuum plasma spraying (VPS), electric arc spraying process (Arc process), and others (high velocity oxy-fuel spraying process (HVOF). Based on the mode of application, market is segmented into industrial goods, energy, transportation & automotive, aerospace & defense and healthcare.
The global ceramic coatings market is driven by the increase in use of defense & aerospace industry and automobile engines components. Moreover, other driving aspects include growth in the use of health care market, efficiency of ceramic coatings, plasma sprayed coatings in electronics & semiconductor equipment with increase in demand for the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, some of the other factors restraining the market growth are high capital intensive, development of cheaper substitutes and huge cost of ownership. Additionally, the upcoming technological developments, and the emerging market adds to the major restraint for the market.
Asia Pacific region is expected to remain one of the leading region for the ceramic coating materials owing to new applications associated with oil & gas exploration, automotive, and textile industry in China followed by the other key countries such as Brazil, India, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Japan to drive industry development over the forecast period. The automotive,aerospace & defense, and oil & gas exploration are expected to drive the North American region market is likely to remain the major market. It is further estimated that the global ceramic coatings market to reach at US $13.1 billion, by 2025.
