MEA Ceramic Coatings Market - Segmented by Type, Technology, End-User and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2018-2023)
The Middle East & Africa ceramic coatings market is expected to register a robust growth rate during the forecast period, 2018 - 2023. These coatings generally are applied to metal or metallic alloy components, as well as to ceramic components. They improve the performance of metals, thus, making them fit for several applications. The market is driven by its increasing demand from the automotive industry, owing to its increasing usage in automotive manufacturing.
Increasing Demand from Automotive Industry
Ceramic coatings find ample use in automobiles. They are mostly used on exhaust components to decrease temperature. Their low heat absorption also makes them suitable for use on heaters to keep the under–hood-temperature low. They are also known to provide a 3% gain in the horsepower when coated on the entire exhaust system. They also keep the engine bay cooler and safer. Thus, they are increasingly being used in the exhaust systems. Ceramic coatings reduce wear, lower the operating temperature, and decrease the friction when coated on engine parts, such as piston tops, rings & valves, rods, etc. Furthermore, with the increasing environment-related regulations with respect to vehicle emissions, automobile manufacturers are increasingly shifting to ceramic coatings.
Aerospace & Defense is the Largest End-user
In the past decade, Middle-East has been the aviation hub for the production of passenger airplanes for their airlines. The increase in the passenger airplanes production further increases the demand for the thermal sprayed ceramic coatings. Various airplane components, like engines, rotors, and other mechanical parts, require hard and wear resistant coatings that can withstand high temperatures, therefore, they use ceramic coatings. The growth of the aerospace sector, particularly influenced by the agreements between the global players and regional entities, like Mubadala Aerospace in the UAE and the Alsalam Aircraft Company in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the growing foreign investments will affect the market positively.
UAE to Dominate the Market in the Middle-East
The ceramics coatings market in the UAE is primarily driven by the rising demand in the oil & gas industry, aviation industry, and the automotive sector. The UAE is the home for the global transport hubs, like Etihad and Emirates, which are one of the major users of ceramic coatings for the maintenance and repair airplane components. The application of ceramic coatings for thermal insulation in the aerospace applications, like space shuttles, makes them an attractive segment of the market and they are witnessing a fast growth due to an increased interest in space. Furthermore, the increasing nanotechnological applications market where electronic devices are manufactured using coatings appears to be a significant market in the future.
