Thermal Spray Coatings Market

Thermal Spray Coatings Market is Driven by Increasing Demand From Aviation Sector


Thermal spray coatings are multi-layer coatings applied on various substrates to enhance their properties. These coatings provide excellent corrosion and wear resistance by forming a protective layer on the substrate surface. Thermal spray coatings offer superior adhesion, heat resistance, and electrical conductivity. They are commonly used in engines, turbines, hydraulic equipment, and engine components in aviation and energy industries to improve performance and operational life. The aviation sector extensively relies on thermal spray coatings for critical engine parts such as piston caps, piston rings, cylinder liners, and valves. Coating these components increases engine efficiency by reducing friction between moving parts and protects against corrosion and wear in adverse environmental conditions.

The global Thermal Spray Coatings Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 13161.34 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the major trends gaining traction in the thermal spray coatings market is the development of environment-friendly coatings. Stringent environmental regulations regarding volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions during coating processes are propelling manufacturers to introduce green coating solutions. Companies are actively research to develop waterborne and 100% solids thermal spray coating solutions using biomass and bio-derived raw materials. For instance, Plasma Technology, Inc. offers sustainable thermal spray coatings produced from patented BioPower100 binder technology that utilizes renewable plant-based materials. Such eco-friendly coating offer significant reduction in VOC content compared to conventional coatings. Their adoption is expected to grow rapidly to meet sustainability goals across end-use industries.
