The global thermal spray coatings market is predicted to expand at a staggering CAGR over the forecast period (2018-2023) owing to its extensive use in the healthcare sector, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Thermal spray coatings comprise a heat source which melts the coating material into wire, powder, or rod form and sprayed onto the substrate at high velocity. They are used to improve and enhance the characteristics of the substrates by imparting resistance against erosion, corrosion, wear, cavitation, abrasion, or heat.

Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Market
Thermal spray coatings offer advantages such as high deposition rate, thick coatings, and low emission of toxic gas over surface treatment processes like anodizing, nickel and chrome plating, weld overlay, and nitride or heat treat processes. They are used across several end-use industries like automotive, energy & power, agriculture, electronics, industrial, healthcare, and aerospace. Need to improve the durability of machine component in order to avoid high replacement cost at a later stage is expected to foster the market growth.
On the flip side, growing concern to minimize overspray and wastage of materials is anticipated to inhibit the market growth. Moreover, emergence of substitutes like liquid coatings which can cover the inside corners and hard-to-reach surfaces is likely to hamper the business growth.
