Increasing Demand for Eco-friendly Coating Processes to Promote Growth

According to Eurostat, the industrial sector accounts for more than half of the total emissions in Europe. The rising concern over greenhouse emissions has propelled the demand for environmentally safe products. For instance, the physical vapor deposition process adopts eco-friendly products such as titanium nitride (TiN) and chromium nitride (CrN). These materials are coated on corrosion-resistant electroplating and further enhance the finish of the surface. In addition, they offer superior performance without the risk of environmental hazards. Therefore, owing to this, the high demand for eco-friendly coating processes across several industrial applications is expected to favor the growth of the market during the forecast period.


Asia-Pacific – The region stood at USD 10.25 billion in 2020 and is expected to hold the highest position in the market during the forecast period. This is owing to the increasing consumption of medical equipment and solar products in countries such as China. Besides, the presence of eminent physical vapor deposition solution providers will favor regional growth during the forecast period.

North America – The region is expected to experience significant growth owing to the well-established supply chain network and distributorship in the region. Moreover, the increasing adoption of the physical vapor deposition process in the manufacturing of solar panels and cutting tools will boost the growth of the market between 2021 and 2028.
