DUBLIN, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/srm77r/physical_vapor) has announced the addition of the "Physical Vapor Deposition Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.
PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) is a coating technique carried out in vacuum at high temperatures. The PVD process typically involves three stages: evaporation of coating material, transportation to the surface and condensation over the surface as a thin film. Other methods used for PVD involve sputtering or bombardment of ions over the surface.
The PVD process results in highly adherent coating. A thin layer of these solid materials applied through PVD provides higher strength, durability and corrosion resistance over traditional coating processes such as electroplating. Environmental benefits coupled with higher efficiency of PVD over traditional techniques have been major factors driving growth for the PVD market.
Increasing demand for microelectronics is expected to emerge as a major factor driving growth for the PVD market during the forecast period. Microelectronics equipment is used in various applications such as computers, medicine and defense. Growth in technological advancements has led to an increase in demand for efficient and smaller electronic products.
Rising usage in medical equipment is anticipated to offer huge growth opportunities for the PVD market. However, patent protected technology with high investment cost is anticipated to hamper the growth of PVD market in the next few years.
The PVD industry can be bifurcated into three segments PVD equipment, PVD materials and PVD services. PVD equipment mainly comprises vacuum, heating, condensation and coating equipment. PVD equipment dominated the global market in terms of revenue in 2012.
The market revenue share of PVD equipment stood at 65% in 2012 and is expected to experience significant growth in the coming years. PVD materials include various raw materials such as titanium, aluminum and nitrogen. PVD services include installation of equipment and coating services. Growth in end-use industries such as microelectronics and solar is projected to drive the PVD services market. PVD services is estimated to emerge as the fastest growing segment during the forecast period.
