Thermal Spray Materials Market Segment Analysis By Process Type
Chemical (Combustion flame) segment held the largest share of 54% in the thermal spray materials market in the year 2020. Combustion flame is a widely used process in the recent times owing to the many advantages offered by the process. The combustion flame process is fast and quick and helps in saving times as well as doing the coating process efficiently. Combustion flame uses simple equipment, which thus helps in giving permit over many aspects of the products and leads to the creation of high purity products. Spraying technology, one of the widely used equipment/technology in thermal spray materials market also follow combustion flame process. This is majorly driving the combustion flame segment in the thermal spray materials market.
Thermal Spray Materials Market Segment Analysis By End-Use Industry
Automobile industry held the largest share of 37% in the thermal spray materials market in the year 2020. The increase in the use of thermal spray coatings materials for coatings in the automobile industry is highly driving the demand for thermal spray materials market. For instance, International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, the global production of all vehicles during the first quarter of the year 2021 in the emerging countries alone stood at 11383857 units, an increase of 39.9% from the production of 8135956 units during the first quarter of the year 2020. This is one of the major factors driving the demand for thermal spray materials market.
Thermal Spray Materials Market Segment Analysis By Geography
North American region held the largest share of 42% in the thermal spray materials market in the year 2020. The increase in the production of aircraft for various needs such as commercial purposes, civil aircrafts and defense aircrafts is driving the aerospace industry in the region. According to Aerospace Industries Association the total sales revenue of the aerospace industry in the year 2019 stood at US$909 billion in the United States. This is one of the biggest factors driving the thermal spray powders market, since it is extensively used in the coatings and other components such as engine blades and other components of the aircrafts. The aerospace industry of the United States is growing stronger due to various reasons like highest export rate of aircrafts, research and development and others which is driving the aerospace industry in the US. Furthermore, according to data from US Government Accountability Office, the defense spending of US army amounted to US$714 billion in the year 2020 and is expected to increase to US$733 billion in the year 2021. This is further driving the demand for thermal spray powders from the aerospace industry.

Thermal Spray Materials Market Drivers
Increasing investment and development in the aerospace industry
The increase in the investments and development in the aerospace industry is hugely driving the thermal spray materials market. Thermal spray powders are highly used in the aerospace industry owing to the special properties provided by thermal spray materials such as high resistance to abrasion and protection from UV rays is increasing the demand for thermal spray materials market in the aerospace industry. According to Aerospace Industries Association, the global exports of the US aerospace industry stood at US$148 billion in the year 2019, which is one of the biggest factors driving the thermal spray materials market since it is extensively used as coating materials of the aircrafts.
Rising demand from semiconductors industry
The increase in demand for coating materials in the semiconductor industry is one of the significant factors driving the demand for thermal spray materials market. The process of combustion flame is prevalent in the electrical and electronics industry for chemical vapor deposition on semiconductors and other electronics products. Therefore, the increase in the growth of the electrical and electronics industry is increasing the demand for combustion flame and spraying technology for depositing coating materials on electronic devices. According to Semiconductor Industry Association, the global sales of semi-conductors increased at a 6.5% to US$439 billion in the year 2020 from the year 2019. This is driving the demand for thermal spray materials market.
Thermal Spray Materials Market Challenges
Availability of Hard Trivalent Coating
Hard Trivalent Coatings are coating materials used on metals such as zinc and aluminium. It is also used on cooper, silver, cadmium and other metals and alloys. Hard Trivalent Coatings only require less energy and process to be applied and can also withstand interruptions, making it a robust coating material. Trivalent coatings consist fewer toxic materials as compared to thermal spray materials and therefore, it is less regulated by government and regulatory bodies, making it easier to be produced and used. Hard trivalent coatings help in reducing hazardous waste and other compliance costs. Therefore, this is one of the major challenges faced by the thermal spray materials market.
