Metal finishing is used to coat products made from certain metals to enhance their life-span and to prevent them from getting corroded. It is also used to enhance electrical properties of these metals and the bonding of organic coatings. Finishing is also used to provide these metals with a better visual appearance and appeal for consumers.
The report on this study has been segmented on the basis of type into inorganic, organic, and hybrid metal finishing. The inorganic metal finishing segment is further segmented into cladding, pre-treatment/surface preparation, consumables and spares, electroplating, galvanizing, electro-less plating, conversion coatings, anodizing, and electro polishing. Among the inorganic metal finishing technologies, the electroplating processes segment dominates the market. The demand for the galvanizing segment is expected to rise further, which would be steered by the growing demand for galvanized steel in various parts of the world. The 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 given forecast period.
The report is also segmented on the basis of application (automotive, appliances, hardware, jewelry, aerospace, heavy equipment, tires, electronics, telecommunication, and others) and on the basis of geography (Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Venezuela, Peru and the Rest of South America). Brazil has the largest market share accounting for XX.XX% of the South American metal finishing market share, followed by Argentina and others. Brazil is also projected to be the fastest-growing market during the given forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the presence of developing economy in this region, which is also witnessing rapid growth in the automotive, steel, and electrical & electronics industries. Among all the segments in this market, the inorganic metal finishing market dominated the rest in terms of both market share and volume, with market a share of USD XX.XX billion in 2015. 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.
Market Dynamics of the South American Metal Finishing Market:
Growth of the automotive and steel industries
Growing demand from the developing countries
Need for durable, wear resistant, long lasting metal products
Restriction of use from the environmental and chemical agencies
The growth of this market is largely fuelled by increasing applications, technological advancements, and growing demand in the developing countries in the Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Columbia etc. due to the large setup of the automotive, electronics, appliances industries in these countries. The constant push from the regulatory authorities will act instrumental in the reduction of metal-finished products to reduce their impact on the environment. Since volatile organic compounds (VOC) used in these solvents are carcinogenic in nature, they are thereby harmful towards the environment. Additionally, chemical elements, such as chromium, cyanide, cadmium, and chlorinated solvents, are toxic to health and contaminate the environment when disposed of into the water bodies around the industrial areas.
