North America Ceramic Coatings Market - Segmented by Type, Technology, End-User and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2018-2023)
The North America ceramic coatings market is expected to register a robust growth rate during the forecast period, 2018 - 2023. These coatings are generally 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 the 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 the exhaust components to decrease the temperature. Their low heat absorption also makes them suitable for use on heaters to keep the under-the-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 exhaust systems. Ceramic coatings reduce wear, lower the operating temperature, and decrease friction when coated on engine parts, such as piston tops, rings & valves, rods, etc. Furthermore, with the increasing environment-related regulations regarding vehicle emissions, automobile manufacturers are increasingly shifting to ceramic coatings.
Aerospace & Defense is the Largest End-user
Aerospace is the largest application of 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 are coated with ceramic coatings. The United States government has significantly increased its spending on the defense sector in the recent years. There has been a growing demand for safety coatings materials and performance metal finishing in defense equipment, due to their ability to enhance durability, thermal resistance, and other properties. This has increased the use of ceramic coatings in the sector.
US to Lead the Ceramics Coatings Market
The United States accounts for the highest market share in the ceramic coatings market. This is also expected to grow considerably during the forecast period, driven by the recovering economy, increasing expenditure on defense & aerospace, and the increasing production of high performance automobiles. The US ceramic coatings market is also attracting many startups, that are coming up with innovative applications for the same. The United States has one of the largest automotive markets in the world and has 13 auto manufacturers.There is an extensive network of auto parts suppliers serving the industry. This is expected to increase the demand for ceramic coatings in the region.
