Metal finishing is a process of changing the surface, to improve the appearance and durability of the object. The process is related to electroplating, where the thin surface coating of the metal is done on another by electro-deposition.
The growing automotive and steel industry, increase in demand for durable and wear resistant products, and demand from emerging economies will drive the market growth during the forecast period. However. The replacement of metals by plastics in various applications and environmental concerns may hinder the growth of the market. The environment friendly electro-less plating and newer technologies for metal finishing will provide significant opportunities for the market during the forecast period.
The Europe metal finishing market is segmented on the basis of type into inorganic metal finishing, organic metal finishing and hybrid metal finishing. The market is segmented by application into automotive, appliances, jewelry, hardware, aerospace, construction, medical devices and construction among others.
Among all the segments in the market, the inorganic metal finishing market dominates the rest in terms of both market share and volume, with its worth by revenue as USD XX billion in 2016. It is expected to witness a considerable growth rate during the forecast period, due to the increasing demand from the end user industries such as automotive, electronics and aerospace and is expected to reach USD XX by 2021, growing at a CAGR of XX%, during the forecast period 2016-2021.
Among the inorganic metal finishing technologies, electroplating processes dominate the market. It accounts for about 38% of the market and was valued at USD XX billion in 2016. The demand for galvanizing is expected to rise further, steered by the growing demand for galvanized steel. Electro-less plating segment is replacing the electroplating in many applications as the former is environment friendly and is expected to witness a considerable growth rate during the forecast period.
Some of the key players in the metal finishing market are Abakan Inc., Caswell, Technic Inc, Atotech Deutschland GmbH and Sifco Metal Industries.
