The market for thermal spray powder is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 7% during the forecast period. Some of the major factors driving the growth of the market studied are the increasing demand for higher performance customized alloy powders, increasing prominence for plasma spray coatings, and extensive consumption of thermal sprayed tungsten-cobalt (WC-Co) coatings.
  • Issues regarding process reliability and consistency and rising popularity of thermal spray ceramic coatings are expected to hinder the market's growth.
  • Industrial scale production of environmental barrier coatings (EBC) thermal spray powders are projected to act as an opportunity for the market in the future.
  • Aerospace sector is expected to dominate the market demand. North America is expected to lead the regional market share.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from the Aerospace Industry
  • Ceramic powders, such as tungsten carbide and chrome carbide, are used as thermal barrier coatings in the aerospace and aviation sector, to protect components against intense heat and wear. In the aerospace sector, thermal spray powders are extensively used as the protective coatings of aircraft components and to repair the old ones. They are used in the protection of engine turbine blades and actuation systems, to provide high thermal resistance and longevity.
  • Thermal spray powder coatings are largely employed for several purposes in jet engine components, such as crank shafts, piston rings, cylinders, valves, and so on. In addition, they are also applied in the coating of landing gear (bearings and axles inside the landing gear) to withstand the forces during landing and take-off.
  • The aircraft production industry is booming in the Asia-Pacific and South American regions. Countries, such as China and India, are witnessing growth in the aircraft passenger travel rate, owing to the rising consumer incomes and increasing airport infrastructure network.
  • The air travel passenger fleet in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to rise by 5.7%, while the aircraft fleet is expected to increase at a rate of 4.8% during the forecast period. The total aircraft fleet is expected to reach to a number of 17,520 by 2036. Similarly, the Latin American and Middle Eastern regions are also expected to witness significant growth rates of 4.4% and 5.1%, respectively, between 2017 and 2036. With increasing aircraft fleet, the repair and maintenance of aircraft also increases YoY.
  • All the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

North America region to Dominate the Market
  • The North American region dominated the market share. The United States is the second-largest producer of automotive in the world.
  • The aerospace industry in United States is also thriving, owing to the strong exports of aerospace components to countries, such as France, China, and Germany, along with robust consumer spending in the United States.
  • The manufacturing industry of Canada is also expected to thrive during the forecast period, owing to the increasing business investment, government expenditure, and consumer spending.
  • The aerospace industry of Canada is also witnessing strong growth. The country is the third-largest in terms of civil aircraft production, along with being second in business aircraft production and third in helicopter production, around the world.
  • Owing to the rise of these end-user industries in the United States and Canada, North America is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period.
