Global Ceramic Coatings Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • An Upsurge in Aircraft Manufacturing- In order to protect the aircraft from damage and enhance its appearance, ceramic coatings may be used on a plane's surface. In order to provide a smooth and aeroponic finish, those coating applications may be used for the exterior of aircraft components such as planes' fuselages or wings. In addition, these paint agents can also be used in aircraft engines with a view to improving performance and reducing fuel consumption. For instance, the global production of aeroplanes increased by approximately 9% to 2789 aircraft in 2019.
  • Surging Demand for Medical Instruments- When used during surgery or other procedures, ceramic coating of medical instruments has superior insulation properties and no adverse effect on the living tissue or cells. These paints facilitate the reduction of tissue adherence for various surgery ablators, such as blades, knives, and so on, enabling surgeons to achieve better-cutting accuracy and a simpler device cleaning process. The United States, with more than USD 28 billion in exports according to the report published in 2020, was the biggest exporter of healthcare equipment followed by Germany at around EUR 11 billion.
  • Increasing Installations of Solar Panels- A large use of ceramic paint for conductive coatings is made in solar panel production. The protection from mineral damage and discoloration of the glass is provided by this coating. In addition, these coatings protect solar mirrors and enable them to withstand extreme temperatures. As an example, by 2022, around 3.8 million homes in Australia will have had the option of having a Solar Energy System.


  • Hefty Cost of Ceramic Coatings- The high price of ceramic coating, as well as the significant time required to apply it in an effective manner on certain surfaces are reasons for its high cost. Consequently, this factor is estimated to hamper growth in the market over the next few years.
  • Sufficient Levels of Investments are Required Which Could be a Restraining Factor
  • Availability of Cheaper Substitutes Which May Hinder the Growth of the Market

Ceramic Coatings Segmentation

Application (Automotive & Transportation, Energy, Aerospace & Defense, Industrial Goods, Healthcare)

The automotive & transportation segment is anticipated to hold 32% share of the global ceramic coatings market. Increasing demand for vehicles to offer a layer of corrosion prevention can be attributed to this growth. In order to provide a corrosion-free protection layer, these coatings are most often used on vehicles' bodies. In other words, in 2021 the global sales of cars reached 57,399,478 units whereas by 2020 they were 54,919,156. Similarly, an increase of almost 57,058,298 units from 55,905,987 in 2020 was estimated for the world's vehicle production in 2021.

Technology (Thermal Spray, Physical Vapor Deposition, Chemical Vapor Deposition)

Ceramic coatings market from the thermal spray is expected to garner a significant share of around 50% in the year 2036. A large density of the thermal spray, which is capable of delivering enhanced surface characteristics, corrosion resistance, capacitance strength and so on, can be considered as a driver for segment growth. In addition, almost all material surfaces can be covered with this method of application. In the coming year, it is therefore expected that this factor will also increase segment growth.
