Ceramic coating is an inorganic material that is often manufactured and applied at high temperatures. This product is mostly composed of silica, silicon carbide, alumina-magnesia, alumina, hafnia, titania, and silicon nitride. Ceramic coating provides various advantages, such as increasing component longevity, decreasing heat on high-temperature components, reducing friction, preventing corrosion, and improving surface attractiveness. Furthermore, it has good qualities, such as heat resistance, anti-corrosion, and weathering efficiency, which will drive the demand for ceramic coatings in various sectors.

The rising penetration of ceramic coatings in developing countries, such as India, China, Indonesia, and Brazil, is projected to boost the overall industry growth. The increased automotive manufacturing in these countries is expected to drive the need for ceramic coatings in automobiles. Owing to its excellent anti-corrosion and abrasion properties, ceramic coating finds wide applications in the steel sector, which include chimneys, refractory pumps, bearings, and bricks. Oxide coatings are widely used coatings due to their properties such as corrosion protection, wear resistance, shock resistance, and hardness.

Ceramic coatings find numerous applications in the transportation, energy, aerospace, and healthcare industries. The surging usage of ceramic coating in marine industry will boost the consumption of the product. However, high product costs may hamper industry growth. Additionally, a declined growth in the automotive industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to be a major restraining factor in the global ceramic coating market. Nevertheless, technological advancements, such as nanocoating, are likely to open new growth opportunities for the overall industry.

Thermal spray segment accounted for 50% market share in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 8 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 7.5% from 2021 to 2027. Thermal spray coating is gaining popularity due to its advantages such as good corrosion & wear resistance and the ability to deposit significantly thicker coatings at higher deposition rates than conventional coating processes. The use of ceramic coatings through thermal spray technology is mainly for thermal barriers, dielectric strength, corrosion protection, and sliding wear.

Additionally, physical vapor deposition is anticipated to grow substantially due to superior thermal efficiency and cheaper cost. The physical vapor deposition process, on the other hand, is less resistant to high surface temperatures and pressures. As a result of these drawbacks, PVD is unsuitable for the aerospace sector.

Increasing application in the automotive industry will drive the overall ceramic coating market

Ceramic Coating Market by application

The transportation & automotive segment was valued at USD 3 billion in 2020 and with a CAGR 7.5% is expected to reach USD 5 billion by 2027 due to the growing product adoption in the automotive industry. Ceramic coatings are widely used in the interior and exterior surfaces of vehicles. The surging automotive production, especially in the Asia Pacific and Europe, is a key factor influencing product demand. Ceramic coating is also used in engine parts to improve heat shielding, friction reduction, and wear resistance. It is also commonly used on the exteriors of automobiles for UV protection.

The aerospace & defense segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.7% through 2027. The increased use of oxide and carbide coats in engine components, space shuttles, insulating tiles, rocket exhaust cones, and windshield glass integrated into aircraft is stimulating the overall market growth. According to the Aerospace Industries Association, the global aerospace & defense industry accounted for around USD 874 billion in 2020. Surging aircraft demand along with technological developments is further anticipated to boost the overall ceramic coating market growth.

Asia Pacific to witness significant growth throughout the assessment period

Ceramic Coating Market by region

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share of around 40% in 2020.
