The Global Thermal Spray Coatings Market is projected to exhibit at a CAGR of over 6.5% to reach a value of more than USD 16.8 billion by 2027.

Thermal spraying is a technology that improves or restores the surface of a solid material. The process involves heating a material in powder or wire form to a molten or semi-molten state. The heated material is sprayed on the substrate material at a high velocity. It is used to provide resistance against wear, erosion, cavitation, corrosion, abrasion, and heat.

Thermal spraying is also used to provide electrical conductivity or insulation, lubricity, high or low friction, chemical resistance, and many other desirable surface properties.


Market Drivers:

  • High Demand from Major End-use Industries

Extensive use of thermal spray coatings in end-use industries such as aerospace, automotive, and healthcare is one of the key drivers for the market growth. The aerospace industry remains the largest contributor to the growth of the thermal spray coatings market, owing to the requirement of high thermal and wear resistance. Thermal spray coatings are being used in a wide range of aerospace components such as jet engine components, turbine blades, and landing gears, among others.

Additionally, the coatings are used in the healthcare industry for various applications such as prosthetics, orthopedics, dental implants, among others.

  • Use as a Replacement of Hard Chrome Coatings

Stringent regulations by the US Environmental Protection Agency and European Chemicals Agency on the use of high VOC content coatings such as hard chrome coatings. Additionally, thermal spray coatings are inexpensive, thus having a positive impact on their demand.

Therefore, use of thermal spray coatings as a substitute for hard chrome coatings is a driver of the global market.

Market Restraint:

  • Disadvantages Associated with Thermal Spray Coatings

Although thermal spray coatings exhibit numerous advantages, it has certain drawbacks. Firstly, the process requires a high initial set-up cost on the account of an expensive apparatus. The process restricts the precise evaluation of its effectiveness, apart from a visual assessment. Moreover, Thermal spray systems can produce ultraviolet light. For instance, plasma systems are known to operate at high intensity in the UV-C region while flame spray processes can produce radiation that resides in the erythemal or UV-B region. Prolonged exposure to such radiation may cause flash burns damage to the eyes, altered skin cell growth, and skin burns.

Therefore, disadvantages associated with thermal spray coatings is a major restraining factor.
