Thermal spray processes can be primarily segmented into combustion-based and electric energy-based processes. In the North America thermal spray market report, the aforementioned processes have further been divided into Low Velocity (Wire/Powder), High Velocity (HVOF), Detonation; and Wire Arc, Plasma, & Cold Spray, respectively. On the basis of materials, the North America thermal spray market is segmented into coating materials and supplementary materials (auxiliary materials). The coating materials are further segmented into powders, wires/rods, and others (liquid). The powders are further drilled down into various sub segments: metal-based (pure metals & alloys, precious metals, and MCrAIY), ceramic-based (ceramic oxides (alumina, chromia, titania, zirconia, and others), cermets, and carbides), and polymers & others. By equipment, the global thermal spray market is segmented into thermal spray coating systems, dust collection equipment, spray guns & nozzles, feeder equipment, spare parts, noise-reducing enclosures, and others.
Thermal spray techniques, owing to their superior deposition rate, in comparison to other traditional coating processes, are an integral part of various major industrial sectors. In the global thermal spray market report, we have taken the following major end-user sectors into consideration: automotive, aerospace, industrial gas turbines, energy & power, electronics, oil & gas, medical devices, and others. The XX industry accounted for XX% share of the North America thermal spray market in 2015.
This market is driven by a number of factors, such as rising demand from automotive sector, increased usage in medical devices, and replacement of hard chrome coating with thermal spray coatings. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, such as such as emergence of hard trivalent chrome coating, and consumer trust issues regarding process reliability and consistency. These factors may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.
The market has also been geographically segmented based on consumption. The country specific analysis includes United States, Canada, Mexico, and Rest of North America. In terms of consumption, in 2015, the United States led the market, followed by Canada, and Mexico. The increased use of thermal spray techniques in the automotive industry in the United States was the one of the primary factor propelling the growth of the thermal spray market in the United States.
The growing use of thermal spray processes in oil & gas sector, along with the advancements in the spraying technology (cold spray process) will offer numerous opportunities in the growth of the North America thermal spray market. Some of the major companies dominating the market include Flame Spray Technologies, H.C. Starck, Oerlikon Metco, Praxair Surface Technologies, Treibacher, and Metallization Ltd.
