Precious Metal Plating Chemicals Market: Overview

Precious metal plating is a chemical process involving the deposition of a specific precious metal on a surface made of a substrate that is less expensive than the previous metal via an electrochemical process. Precious metals are naturally occurring and rare metals that exhibit a high rate of purchase or sale and are known for high economic value.

They are relatively less reactive than other forms of metal. In most cases, they have a high-grade luster index which makes them highly valuable and attractive. The four main types of precious metals include palladium, gold, platinum, and silver. Plating a precious metal involves an extremely complex procedure and is used to bond a given precious metal with other materials. In this process, the substrate refers to the underlying object to which the metal adheres.

The procedure involves submerging the substrate in a specially designed chemical solution that contains ions, in a dissolved state, of the precious metal. The next step makes use of an electric current that passes through the solution which ultimately aids the deposition of the precious metal on the substrate. Owing to the unique properties of precious metals, they are highly desired in industrial processes involving electroplating. Some of the properties include higher corrosion resistance and conductivity.

Precious Metal Plating Chemicals Market: Growth Drivers

Growing investment in the jewelry business to drive market growth

The global precious metal plating chemicals market is anticipated to grow due to the rising investments in the jewelry industry, one of the largest consumers of precious metals in different forms. The jewelry sector has been in existence for decades and continues to grow at a fast pace due to the high and ever-increasing economic value of jewelry. Tiffany & Co., a leading luxury jewelry brand was valued at around USD 6.56 billion in 2022.

Gold plating is one of the most common forms of precious metal plating and the items created using this technique have found consumers across the globe. Although other metals like platinum and rhodium remain expensive and one of the most valuable metals, gold, and silver have become accessible. In India, the demand for gold increased to 797.3 metric tons in 2021, as per Statista whereas demand for silver jewelry was around 59 million troy ounces in the same year.

Precious Metal Plating Chemicals Market: Restraints

Fluctuating prices of raw materials to restrict market expansion

The global market is projected to witness roadblocks due to varying prices of raw materials required during the electroplating process. The current changes in political power dynamics may also impact the supply chain of the precious metal as some regions have a higher concentration of the metals as compared to others, giving them an upper hand. Around 80% of the total platinum deposit is found in South Africa whereas smaller reserves can be located in Australia, Zimbabwe, and the United States.

Precious Metal Plating Chemicals Market: Opportunities

Growing reach in the electronics and electrical segment to provide excellent growth opportunities

Chemicals used in precious metal plating have found wide applications in the electronics and electrical segment. Since precious metals exhibit a good range of conductivity and hence are widely used in these sectors. Silver is known to rank top in the list of most conductive metals since it conducts electricity and heat due to its single valence electron and unique crystal structure. In 2021, the electrical and electronics industry stood at a global market value size of USD 3,193 billion and may grow at a CAGR of 6.52% by 2028.

Precious Metal Plating Chemicals Market: Challenges

Environmental damage caused by chemicals to challenge the otherwise growing market size

Precious metal plating leads to the generation of large amounts of wastewater that includes spray losses, rinsed water, leakages, and conducting solution dumping. This poses a major challenge for the global precious metal plating market players as businesses must invest heavily in resolving the issues arising due to environmental damage. Even though the metals themselves are renewable, the impact on the environment will take years to reverse and a collaborative effort.

Precious Metal Plating Chemicals Market: Segmentation

The global precious metal plating chemicals market is segmented based on application, chemical base, product form, and region

Based on application, the global market segments are fashion accessories & jewelry, electrical & electronics, hardware, automotive, aerospace, and others. In 2021, the electrical & electronics segment dominated the global market and by 2028, it may generate around USD 890 million as per estimates. The high market share is due to the growing demand for electroplating processes in the segment owing to the excellent conductive properties of precious metals. The hardware segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.15%.

Based on the chemical base, the global market divisions are silver, palladium, rhodium, platinum, and gold.
