Physical Vapor Deposition Market Growth & Trends

The global physical vapor deposition market size is expected to reach USD 28.2 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2021 to 2028. The sustained growth for PVD in microelectronics and medical equipment is expected to boost the demand for PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a severe disruption of the supply chain leading to raw material unavailability along with labor shortage for the electronics industry. The halting of ongoing production of electronics decreased the demand for thin-film coating using the PVD during the pandemic in 2020.

The sputtering technology in PVD has a number of advantages over other technologies which include higher packing densities and better adhesion. Moreover, sputtering can be carried out over a greater number of metals such as alloys and mixtures which is expected to increase the demand for sputtering systems over the forecast period.

The PVD coating is beginning to gain more traction, especially from the automobile industry. With low metal layer thickness, companies have been able to achieve full recyclability for automobile components. Moreover, PVD coatings do not emit Volatile Organic Compounds which is expected to increase the demand for PVD over the forecast period.
