Thermal spray coating is a process in which molten materials are sprayed onto a surface. The coating precursor is heated by electrical arc or by plasma. It can provide thick coatings approximate thickness range of 20 microns to several mm. The advantages are enhancing its adoption in several industries particularly in the aerospace and automotive industries.

Thermal Spray Coatings Market Dynamics

Growth in the power and energy sector boosts the market growth due to an increase in its users to enhance the life span of gas turbines and power generators owing to its superior properties such as heat resistance, and high corrosion resistance. Also, it is environmentally friendly compared to other coatings. Additionally, recent technical innovations and advancements in the thermal spray coating process are also driving the market.

Growth of various industries such as paints and coatings, automotive, aerospace, medical, and packaging are boosting the market due to its increasing scope of applications in these sectors as it provides thermal insulation to critical components. For instance, according to the US Census Bureau, the revenue of paint and coating manufacturers in the U.S. has increased by approximately 38% from 2010 to 2016. It also offers benefits such as surface sealing and clearance control, protection from atmospheric corrosion, high-temperature oxidation and corrosion control, abrasion, fretting, and erosion wear resistance.

Despite the advantages of thermal spray coating, there are also a few limitations that are hindering the market. In this process, it is difficult to achieve thicker, and the coating formation process is uncertain, and also there is no standard method for evaluating the degree of coating adhered to the substrate. Besides, a thermal spray coating setup is very expensive.

Thermal Spray Coatings Market Segment Analysis

Based on substrate the global thermal spray coatings market is broadly segmented as ceramics, metal, carbides, polymers, and others. Among all these ceramics occupied the dominant market share. In the forecast period, it is expected to grow at a higher CAGR, owing to its cost efficiency and easy availability. Also, it offers properties such as thermal resistance and corrosion resistance.

Based on the process the global thermal spray coatings market is segmented into plasma spraying, HVOF spraying, flame spraying, arc spraying, and others. Among all these flame sprayings accounted for a significant market share. It is a thermal spray coating process that uses heat to produce high-quality surface coatings, which can adhere to the substrate. Also, it is a cost-effective process that offers wear resistance. Flame spraying finds applications in industries such as aerospace, infrastructure, oil exploration, and agriculture.

Based on the applications the global thermal spray coatings market is segmented into aerospace, automotive, paints & coatings, and others. Among all these, the aerospace segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the forecast period owing to advantages such as low toxic gas emissions, wear and corrosion resistance, and electrical resistance. Also, growth in the aerospace industry can propel the market.  Significant aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing & Airbus focuses on increasing their production capacities to cater to the demand for commercial and defense aircraft. For instance, Boeing and Airbus were delivered 763 and 718 aircraft in 2017 respectively.
