Diamond Coatings Market: Segmentation
Based on process used, the diamond coatings market can be segmented into CVD (chemical vapor deposition) and PVD (physical vapor deposition). Chemical vapor deposition was the major process segment of the diamond coatings market in 2017 and is likely to remain the dominant segment between 2018 and 2026. Low cost and ability to coat in various shapes is a factor driving the demand for chemical vapor deposition. Diamond coatings are used on surfaces of various materials. In terms of substrate, the diamond coatings market can be classified into composite substrates, metal substrates, and ceramic substrates. Metal substrates was the major segment in 2017 and is projected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. Steel is a major metal which is used to manufacture various components for different industrial applications. This is a key factor that drives the demand for diamond coatings.
However, rising use of composites, especially in aerospace, automotive, and other industries is anticipated to make composite substrates a highly lucrative segment during the forecast period. Based on end-user industry, the diamond coatings market can be segmented into automotive, aerospace, industrial, medical, electronics, and others. Automotive was the leading end-user industry segment of the market for diamond coatings in 2017 and is likely to remain the dominant segment during the forecast period also, followed by the electronics segment.
Cutting tools are highly used to manufacture various automotive components. Growth of the automotive industry, especially in Asia Pacific, is likely to propel the demand for diamond coatings in the automotive segment from 2018 to 2026. Diamond coatings have high thermal and electric conductivity, which makes it a unique material for electric and electronic products. This is a key factor augmenting the demand for diamond coatings in the electronics segment.
