Key Trends and Analysis of the Thermal Barrier Coatings Market:
Among product type, the ceramic segment held a dominant position in 2016 followed by metals and is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. Ceramic coatings are commonly used in automobile applications to reduce heat loss and friction from engine exhaust system components. Intake manifolds, piston skirts, pistons, and cylinder heads are some of the wide variety of applications of ceramic coatings in the automotive industry.
Among coating materials, the Al2O3 system segment accounted for the highest market share in 2016, owing to various beneficial properties the system offers. For instance, the combination of alumina with YSZ prevents corrosion and oxidation. Furthermore, it offers strength and hardness without change in material toughness. Increasing demand for Al2O3 in applications for multilayer coating function is expected to propel growth of the thermal barrier coatings market over the forecast period. High velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) segment is expected to account for the largest revenue share over the forecast period in the market, owing to its use of coating materials such as ceramics, metals, and alloys to offer resistance to wear and corrosion.
