Thermal Spray Powders Market Segment Analysis – By Fiber Type

Ceramic powder segment held the largest share of 35% in the thermal spray powders market in the year 2020. Ceramic powders are highly used in chemical processing and manufacturing. Ceramics withstand high temperature and has increased efficiency and strength. Ceramic powder is also relatively low cost as compared to other fiber such as carbide powder (tungsten carbide and chromium carbide), which makes it a most preferred type of thermal spray powder. It is highly used in various end-use industries such as aerospace and automobile industry.

Thermal Spray Powders Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Industrial Turbines segment held the largest share of 31% in the thermal spray powders market in the year 2020. Industrial turbines are extensively used in energy and heat generation. The growth in the energy generation industry such as wind energy and thermal energy is driving the demand for thermal spray powders in the industrial turbines market. The global gas turbine electrical power generation value stood at around US $ 7.2 billion in the year 2019, which is further driving the thermal spray powders in the industrial turbines sector, as it is highly used in the coatings of the turbines owing to the superior properties provided by the thermal spray powders market.

Thermal Spray Powders Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Aerospace industry held the largest share 30% in the thermal spray powders market in the year 2020. The increase in the use of thermal spray coatings powders in the coatings of the aircrafts is highly driving the demand for thermal spray powders in the aerospace industry. For instance, the annual turnover of the aerospace industry in India in the year 2019 stood at US $ 2.4 billion. The Indian aerospace and defense market is also estimated to reach US $ 23 billion by the year 2024, which is further driving the demand for thermal spray powders from the aerospace industry.

Thermal Spray Powders Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

North American region held the largest share of 38% in the thermal spray powders market in the year 2020. The increase in the production of aircrafts for various reasons such as commercial purposes, civil aircrafts and defense aircrafts. The total sales revenue of the aerospace industry in the year 2019 stood at US $ 909 billion in the United States. This is one of the biggest factor driving the thermal spray powders market, since it is extensively used in the coatings and other components of the aircrafts. The aerospace industry of the United States is growing stronger due to various reasons like highest export rate of aircrafts, research and development etc., which is driving the aerospace industry in the US which is eventually driving the thermal spray powders market in the region.

Thermal Spray Powders Market Drivers

Increasing investment and development in the aerospace industry

The increase in the investments as well as development in the aerospace industry is hugely driving the thermal spray powders market. Thermal spray powders are highly used in the aerospace industry owing to the special properties provided by thermal spray powder such as high resistance to abrasion, resistance to extreme temperature is increasing the demand for thermal spray powders market in the aerospace industry. For instance, the global exports of the US aerospace industry stood at US $ 148 billion in the year 2019, which is one of the biggest factor driving the thermal spray powders market since it is extensively used in the coatings of the aircrafts.

Rising demand from coating industry

The increase in demand from the coating industry is driving the thermal spray powder market. The increase in demand for materials like tungsten carbide and chromi um carbide owing to their superior properties such as increased abrasion resistance, resistance to wear & tear and high bond strength is driving the thermal spray powders market.

Thermal Spray Powders Market Challenges

Availability of raw materials

The availability of raw materials such as calcium carbide is uncertain and volatile. The limited cargo availability due to high ocean container freight is one of the major reason for the difficulty in procuring calcium carbide. The prices also increased at high rates. For instance, the price of calcium carbide in India was averaged at around US$ 810 per metric unit during December 2020. The availability of calcium carbide in various regions across the globe due to tightened supply due to spike in demand of acetylene is also tightening the supply of calcium carbide. This is one of the major challenge faced by the thermal spray powder market.
