High-performance ceramic coatings are ceramic coatings that have a thin layer of ceramic which provide improved resistance to wear, corrosion, high-temperature over other conventional ceramic coatings. They are a type of advanced coatings due to enhance mechanical and physical properties.
The global high-performance ceramic coatings market is estimated to account for US$ 8, 463.2 Mn in terms of value and 1,483.9 Kilo Tons in terms of volume by the end of 2019.
Growing demand for the excellent thermal barrier in the aircraft engines is driving the market growth of the high-performance ceramic coatings. Aircraft engines are highly exposed to harsh temperature levels as well as the corrosive environment. High-performance ceramic coatings enhance the reliability and durability of aircraft engines. These coatings are applied to jet turbine blades in order to protect them from elevated temperature gases releasing from the combustion chamber and improve the engine efficiency.
Technological advancement in plasma sprayed coatings is expected to fuel the market growth of the high-performance ceramic coatings. These coatings are widely used in coatings in the advanced metals and oil & gas as high-performance ceramic coatings offer high resistance from corrosion and extremely high temperatures. Also, the growing demand for durable finished products is again anticipated to bolster the market growth.
