Value of Global Physical Vapor Deposition Industry to Reach Nearly $15 Billion in 2016
According to a new technical market research report, the value of the physical vapor deposition (PVD) industry was nearly $10 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach nearly $15 billion in 2016, a projected five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5%.
The PVD market can be broken down into three segments: PVD equipment, materials deposited, and services. The equipment segment accounted for nearly $7.1 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach nearly $10.4 billion in 2016, a CAGR of 7.9%.
The materials deposited segment, worth $1.6 billion in 2011, should experience a CAGR of 11.3% to reach nearly $2.8 billion in 2016. The services segment was worth nearly $1.3 billion in 2011 and by 2016 should have a value of nearly $1.9 billion, representing a CAGR of 8.3%.
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.
Analysts have examined the current position of PVD technologies and materials in eight major industries. They were interested in what materials and types of PVD systems were being used to meet demands for more sophisticated products. Analysts also analyzed the movements in PVD demand for particular industries caused by the economic downturn of 2007-2008 and the continuing current business problems.
The report presents 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.
The goal of the deposition process is to impart specific properties to a surface to change or alter its characteristics. A material, for example, may be deposited on a surface to protect it from corrosion, wear, and abrasion; to improve its adhesive properties; make it more conductive; protect it from light and air; or to allow denser storage of data.
