Growing Application in Automotive Industry
The automotive industry is poised to become an excellent growth area for thermal spray coatings. In recent years, governments across the world are concentrating on minimizing carbon dioxide, particulate matter and nitrogen oxide emissions, and enhancing fuel economy (as per Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards) of the vehicles. As a result, they are consistently putting pressure on engine and automobile manufacturers to develop and utilize technologies, which aid in reducing emissions and improve the fuel economy of vehicles. Consequently, engine manufacturers are focusing on thermal spray coatings for cylinder bores and other key areas within the engine. Thermal spray coatings are majorly used in transmission parts, suspension system parts, and engine components in the automotive sector.
Furthermore, the increased usage of thermal spray ceramic coating technology in the high-performance car segment is also one of the factors driving the usage of thermal spray technology in the automotive sector. For instance, zirconia-based thermal spray ceramic coatings technology is used in the manufacturing of numerous auto components and accessories in high performance cars. This is attributed to their ability to reduce or minimize the thermal losses or conducted heat losses, improving thermal efficiency for some internal components and externals such as the exhaust system. The growth in the utilization of thermal spray technology by the automotive sector shall subsequently benefit the thermal spray market.
North America Dominates the Market
North America has the highest share in the market, accounting for nearly 33% of the global market share in 2017. The market for North America is driven majorly by the automotive industry in United States. Additionally, there is an extensive network of auto parts suppliers serving the industry. North America constitutes around 34.78% market share of the overall gas turbine electrical power generation. The growing demand for environmental friendly energy production and widespread of smart grid cities are expected to increase the demand for thermal spray in this region.
United States is the Largest Consumer
The economy of the United States is growing at a moderate rate and is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Thermal spray applications are poised for growth in the United States. Atomization is the most common method in the powder manufacturing process, producing metal and pre-alloyed powders, or powders consisting of two or more alloyed elements. The country is the world’s largest market for machinery, as well as the third-largest supplier. American manufacturers held a 58.5% share of the US domestic market. Overall, the thermal spray equipment market is expected to grow at higher rate during the forecast period.
Key Developments in the Market
- August 2017: E.ON for the first time is using innovative corrosion protection technology for the construction and operation of offshore wind farms. For this purpose, the company has developed the Thermal Spray Aluminium (TSA) process for coating of the monopoles.
