Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD): Global Markets

Report Description

BCC Research’s goal in conducting this study was to determine the current status of the global market for physical vapor deposition (PVD) equipment, material deposited by the process and deposition services.  We also sought to assess the worldwide growth potential for this technology from 2010 through 2016.  We were particularly interested in the types of equipment and materials being used in consumer and industrial applications.  We were also again interested in the status of the industry in relation to the continuing global economic and currency problems and the impact they had on equipment demand.

Our major objective was to present a comprehensive analysis of the PVD industry and project its future course.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

PVD has been a proven technology over the past several decades.  Its use has made possible more sophisticated manufacturing and fabrication techniques.  Smaller sized products have also broadened the demand for vapor deposited materials.   New and existing products require materials that can be delivered by vacuum deposition of films on a growing variety of substrates.

We have examined the current position of PVD technologies and materials in eight major industries.  We were interested in what materials and types of PVD systems were being used to meet demands for more sophisticated products.  We also analyzed the movements in PVD demand for particular industries caused by the economic downturn of 2007-2008 and the continuing current business problems.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

We present an overview of deposition technologies and future trends, along with a global industry structure, including leading manufacturers of equipment and service providers.  A review of the PVD industry’s competitiveness in each of the eight market sectors is also provided.  Within each industry, there is an overview of key applications, the advantages of using PVD, an analysis of market factors that will impact demand, shipments for 2010 and 2011, and estimated shipments for 2016.

This study will be of interest to those in the microelectronics business, manufacturers of cutting tools, specialty packagers, maker of storage equipment and media, companies in the solar energy business, manufacturers of automotive and aerospace parts, medical device makers and those in the optics industry.  It will also be of interest to companies engaged in the manufacture of deposition equipment and materials and to surface coaters.

SCOPE OF REPORT

This study encompasses PVD technologies and materials in terms of application, properties and processes.  BCC Research analyzes the major types of PVD systems and materials used to manufacture products in eight key industries.   Applications are discussed, as are properties imparted by PVD.  Trends in demand also are reviewed and their impacts on PVD are assessed.

Market drivers within each industry are identified.  Materials deposited by PVD are analyzed according to basic functions (e.g., wear resistance, abrasion and corrosion resistance, conductivity and barrier protection).  The value of PVD equipment shipments is projected within each industry by type of system.  Material shipment values are projected, along with PVD service revenues.  Technological issues and trends are reviewed, and other influential factors such as economic conditions and standards are discussed.

Because this is a global study, BCC Research analyzes domestic and international technological issues and economic considerations.

Global Welding Consumables Market 2014-2018

Welding is the process of joining similar metals together. It is one of the methods of making high strength joints of two or more different parts. Filler metals melt with joining materials and are consumed during the welding process. Flux is used to produce gas shield around the weld pool and is used to prevent the oxidation of hot metal. Flux acts as a deoxidizer and prevents the formation of porosity in the weld pool. Filler metals and flux together are called as welding consumables. Welding electrodes, metal wires, flux-cored wires, shielding gases, and fluxes are some of the welding consumables. Flux does not form the final part of welding and is wasted during the process. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Welding Consumables market to grow at a CAGR of 6.86 percent over the ......
