Market Dynamics of the Global Metal Finishing Market:
Growth of the automotive and steel industries
Growing demand from the emerging markets
Need for durable, wear resistant, and long lasting metal products
Restriction of use due to environmental and chemical agents
Increasing replacement of metals by plastics
The market is segmented by type into organic metal finishing, hybrid metal finishing, and inorganic metal finishing (cladding, pretreatment/surface preparation, consumables and spares, electroplating, galvanizing, electro-less plating, conversion coatings, anodizing, and electro polishing). The inorganic metal finishing market dominated in 2014, by both market share and volume, with a revenue of USD XX billion. This segment is expected to witness a considerable growth during the forecast period, due to the increasing demand from end-user industries such as automotive, electronics, and aerospace and is expected to reach USD XX by 2021, growing at a CAGR of XX%.
Among all the inorganic metal finishing technologies, the electroplating process segment dominates the market. It accounted for 38% of the market and was valued at USD XX billion in 2014. The demand for galvanizing is expected to rise further, steered by the growing demand for galvanized steel. The electro-less plating segment is replacing electroplating in many applications, as the former is environment-friendly and is expected to witness a considerable growth during the forecast period.
The market has also been segmented by geography into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle-East and Africa. In 2015, Asia-Pacific had the highest market share in terms of revenue, accounting for over 36% of the global metal finishing market.
