Thermal Spray Coating Equipment Market: Growth Drivers

Increasing demand from the aerospace manufacturing industry to drive market growth during the forecast period.

The global thermal spray coating equipment market is projected to grow owing to the increasing applications of thermal spray coatings during aerospace parts & equipment manufacturing. Some of the key applications of thermal spray coatings in the aerospace industry are rotor-path linings, compressor seals, high-pressure turbine seals, bearings, fuel nozzles, landing gears, combustion liners, drive shafts, oil seals, and others. The need for thermal spray coatings has grown in the aerospace industry, as the industry seeks to lighten aircraft and increase fuel efficiency.

Thermal spray coatings protect aerospace metal parts from heat, abrasion, and corrosion. By applying metals, ceramics, and carbides utilizing arc, flame, plasma, or HVOF thermal spray coating systems, aerospace component life is greatly extended. Further, a rocket depends on its propulsion system to provide push both during takeoff and during changing velocity in space. In order to meet these requirements and increase component life in harsh operating environments, high nickel & refractory alloys are used for thermal spray coating materials. All these thermal spray-coating tasks are being performed by a set of different thermal spray-coating equipment such as coating systems, spray guns & nozzles, acoustical enclosures, feeders, dust collectors, etc.

For instance, according to the Global Market Forecast (GMF) released by AIRBUS, around 40,850 new passenger & freighter aircraft deliveries are expected to be made during 2023-2042, across the globe, out of which 32,630 units are likely to be single aisle, and 8,220 units are expected to be widebody. Moreover, the global demand for freighter aircraft is likely to reach 2,510 units during the period 2023-2042. The increasing demand for aircraft is expected to support the usage of thermal spray equipment at aerospace manufacturing facilities.

Moreover, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), commercial airline industry revenues are expected to reach USD 803 billion in 2023, up by 9.7% compared to the previous year’s revenue. In addition, the commercial airline industry’s net profits are likely to reach USD 9.8 billion in 2023, with a 1.2% net profit margin. These factors will increase the demand & procurement of thermal spray coatings equipment from the commercial aerospace industry.

Thermal Spray Coating Equipment Market: Restraints

Lack of precision & process consistency to restrict market expansion

In thermal spray technology, monitoring & improving process reliability are frequent issues. Determining the precision of thermal spray coating equipment is a quite hard task. Once the thermal spray coating has been applied, the effectiveness of the coatings is generally inspected through the visual method. It is very difficult to determine, how well the coating has been applied. The thermal spray process is a highly complex process with a wide range of interacting variables associated with the spray stream creation & its deposit formation on substrates. The manual operation of spray guns further decreases the precision & consistency in many cases such as the unavailability of skilled workers, etc. Moreover, it is hard to bond certain materials through thermal spray coating equipment. Such factors are expected to hinder the growth of the thermal spray coating equipment industry.

Thermal Spray Coating Equipment Market: Opportunities

Development of cold spray process technology to provide growth opportunities

The cold spray process is one of the recent technological developments in the thermal spraying field. The cold spray process offers various advantages, compared to the conventional methods, including, the spray material is not fused or melted during the process. The fundamental principle behind cold spray is that metal particles are propelled through a convergent-divergent nozzle at supersonic speed by a high-pressure stream. Thus, cold spray is a solid-state metal powder deposition method, which can be used for metal surface restoration. The technology can also be used for rapidly building thick coatings & thin films and can be employed for large-scale additive manufacturing at low temperatures. The process technology uses a spray gun, nozzle, powder feeder, and other equipment. Considering such factors, technology has promising opportunities in various sectors such as aerospace, oil & gas, power, marine, automotive, and other industries.

Thermal Spray Coating Equipment Market: Challenges

High cost of adoption to challenge market cap growth

A high initial cost is involved in setting up the thermal spray coating process systems, as these systems require very expensive apparatus. The spray gun & nozzle are among the costliest equipment in the overall system. The cost of the entire thermal spray coating system is significant as it is made up of various types of expensive equipment. However, the challenge from the cost factor can be mitigated, considering the growth prospects & high return in the thermal spray coating equipment industry.

The global thermal spray coating equipment market is segmented based on equipment type, process, end-user industry, and region.

Based on equipment type, the global market segments are thermal spray coating systems, spray guns & nozzles, feeders, dust collectors, noise control enclosures, spare parts, and other thermal spray equipment. Currently, the global market is dominated by spray guns & nozzles, considering their high cost of purchase. A thermal spray gun is used to spray the melted or heated coating material onto the substrate such as metal surface or ceramics. Meanwhile, fuel is burned inside the combustion chamber of the nozzle to create a stream of combustion gases. OC Oerlikon Management AG, Kennametal Inc., and Saint-Gobain are among the key manufacturers of thermal spray guns for a wide range of applications.

Based on process, the thermal spray coating equipment industry is segmented into combustion and electric. The combustion segment dominated the market share in 2022. In the combustion spraying process, a gas stream is created by the chemical reaction of combustion fuel & oxygen, which heats the spray materials and propels them onto a substrate. Thereby, combustion spraying requires the following equipment, including, a combustion-based thermal spray coating system, spray gun & nozzle, feeder, spare parts, dust collector, and others.

Based on the end-user industry, the global market segments are aerospace & defense, automotive, electrical & electronics, oil & gas, energy & power, industrial gas turbines, steel making, medical devices, and other end-user industries. Currently, the thermal spray coating equipment industry is dominated by the aerospace & defense segment. Some of the key players in commercial aerospace are AIRBUS & Boeing. In 2022, Boeing delivered 774 commercial orders including 561 orders for the 737 family and 213 orders for twin-aisle airplanes. Whereas, AIRBUS delivered 661 commercial aircraft in 2022, registering a growth rate of around 8% compared to 2021.

Thereby, these deliveries correspond to the increasing demand for thermal spray coatings and hence, coating equipment at the respective manufacturing facilities. Further, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), military expenditure, across the globe, reached USD 2,240 billion in 2022, up by 3.7% compared to the previous year, thereby, increasing the demand for the thermal spray coating equipment industry.
