Reportstack has announced a new market research publication on Global Ceramic Coating Market 2014-2018. The following companies are the key players in the Global Ceramic Coating Market: APS Materials Inc., Bodycote plc, Kurt J. Lesker Co., and Praxair Surface Technologies Inc. “The Global Ceramic Coating market is witnessing increasing use of plasma-sprayed ceramic coating, especially coating for semiconductor and LCD equipment. The size of semiconductor and LCD production equipment for dry etching, sputtering, and ashing is increasing due to the increase in the size of silicon wafers (from 200 mm to 300 mm) and LCD products. The use of plasma-sprayed ceramic coating makes the equipment lighter and enhances the durability. Thus, the increasing demand for plasma-sprayed ceramic coating in semiconductor and LCD equipment has led to the growth of the Global Ceramic Coating market.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increasing ceramic coating of automotive components. Automotive components are coated with ceramic materials to increase wear resistance and corrosion resistance and reduce friction. Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the high total cost of ownership. The need to hire skilled employees and train them effectively and the need for continuous maintenance and monitoring in order to detect and rectify any failure in the CVD equipment require huge investment by the end-users.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
