Purchasing power in the couPurchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%. On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.                                                         Request Insights

  • August 2019: Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) has rolled out thermal barrier coatings based on its proprietary low-k materials technology, with an aim to enhance aerospace applications.

  • January 2019: An optimal sand-phobic thermal barrier coating has been developed by the research team belonging to the US Army Research Laboratory for their gas turbine engines which is present in the military and commercial fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. The step is taken for aircrafts often operating over sandy regions, so as to increase their tolerance for fine sand particles below 75 microns.

  • September 2018: MAHLE Motorsport has introduced ceramic thermal barrier coating for their PowerPak range of products for improved performance.

Introduction To Thermal Barrier Coating

Thermal barrier coating (TBC) is a form of insulating and physical barrier, which restricts the contact of corrosive elements, such as electrolyte, with the substrate. These are advanced insulating paint and coating materials, usually of thickness of around 100µm to 2mm. They are applied to metallic surfaces, which allows higher operating temperatures and sustain prolonged heating conditions. They are manufactured using epoxy resins, polymers, aluminates and zirconia among others.

Market Size And Forecast

According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), world motor vehicle production grew from 56 Million in 1999 to 95 Million in 2018.

Motor Vehicle Production

The thermal barrier coating market is observing vibrant growth on account of rising production of motor vehicles around the globe. Furthermore, coating applications in the aerospace, aviation and thermal power plant industry for implementations in gas turbines and highly efficient engines are expected to fuel the demand for the growth of the thermal barrier coating market.

The market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 7.1% throughout the forecast period, i.e. 2019-2027. The thermal barrier coating market is segmented by application into industrial, automotive, aerospace and power plants, out of which, automotive sub-segment is anticipated to have largest market share on account of outstanding sales of motor vehicles. In another report stated by OICA, global motor vehicle sales grew from 65 Million in 2005 to 95 Million in 2018.

Growth Drivers

Rising Need For Controlled Combustion Temperatures In Engines

There is a rising demand amongst OEM and aftermarket manufacturers for constant development and production of rotating and moving components of engine parts, which have high thermal control properties and can sustain extreme temperatures inside the engine. This is primarily due to the concern of high wear and tear of these spare parts and their inefficiency to retain extreme temperatures. The thermal barrier coating insulation layer reduces deposition of parasitic mass in these components and increases the part durability by reducing oxidation and thermal fatigue.

Growing Exports Of Aerospace Supply Chain Parts

According to the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC), 62% of aerospace manufacturing exports in 2018 were supply chain related, of which aero engines has the share of 58%.

Overall Export Share Furthermore, according to the trade map of International Trade Statistics (ITC), export of parts of turbojets or turbo propellers around the globe grew from 23,763,420 thousand USD in 2009 to 52,570,923 thousand USD in 2018.

Parts of Turbojets Graph

Aircraft parts such as turbines and aero engines among others, require thermal barrier coating for higher efficiency and performance. There is a rising demand amongst enterprises for manufacturing those parts, owing to growing exports in the aerospace industry, thus raising the demand for thermal barrier coating market.

Growing Investments For Research And Development

The World Bank stated in one of their reports that expenditure for research and developments around the globe increased substantially from 1.97 (% of GDP) in 1996 to 2.23 (% of GDP) in 2016.


According to AIAC, the Canadian aerospace manufacturing industry invested 1.4 billion USD for research and development during the year 2018.

Rising investments in various industries, such as aerospace, automotive, defense, and others; all of these factors are anticipated to support the growth of the thermal barrier coating market throughout the forecast period.


Fluctuations In Price of Volatile Raw Materials

Manufacturing of thermal barrier coatings includes rare earth metal oxides, such as zirconia, ceria, niobium oxide, etc. whose prices differ subject to their availability. The fluctuations in volatile raw material prices acts a barrier to the growth of the thermal barrier coating market during the forecast period.
