The global Physical Vapor Deposition Market is anticipated to grow at the CAGR of 7.8% during 2017-2022. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) is the process of depositing clean, dry and thin film coating, usually dry vacuum over the entire solid surface. It is sometimes referred as PVD coating which involves the vaporization of a solid metal in a high vacuum environment and deposition of electrically conductive material including alloy or pure metal carried out of it. PVD is used in variety of applications including cutting tools, automotive industry, molding tools, decorative coating, medical equipment, solar products and microelectronics due to its eco friendly attributes. The use of PVD is increasing significantly in industries such as healthcare, automotive, aerospace and so forth to replace harmful and galvanic methods. PVD is an eco-friendly technology in contrast to other chemical depositing methods, as a result is expected to gain attraction from across the globe due to rising environmental concerns and cohesive government policies. It involves no hazardous material and does not generate chemical waste or pollution. Green PVD plating is used in place of cyanide and chromium in plating bath for noble metals as well as for plating on plastic. In the U.S., Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has restricted the use of Hexavalent chromium in electroplating due to its hazardous effects on environment. This restriction has shifted the industries towards Physical Vapor Deposition. The major factors that are augmenting the growth of the market include considerable growth in semiconductor industry, rising demand for medical equipment application and preference for PVD over other coating techniques.
Moreover, the global physical vapor deposition has been widely used in medical applications to deposit wear resistant thin film coating on medical devices including pacemakers, dental instruments, orthopedic implants and surgical instruments. PVD coating provides number of benefits to the medical instruments including chemical barrier, reduced friction, sterilization, biocompatibility, saline solution and improved wear resistance. In addition to all these applications, PVD coating is also used in solar panel industry to produce greener electricity and to reduce friction for high performance moving parts in aerospace and automotive industry. However, there are certain factors that are hindering the growth of the market which includes high capital investment and requirement of skilled labors.
A complete analysis of global physical vapor deposition market has been done in different geographical regions that are contributing significantly towards the growth of the market. On the basis of the geography, market is bifurcated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World. Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the physical vapor deposition market owing to rising growth of several end user industries such as microelectronics and PV cell manufacturing in the region.
