Surface Technology Market Overview

The global surface technology market is projected to witness significant growth during the review period, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.98%. The market is expected to reach a value of USD 4,93,297.7 million by the end of the forecast period. In terms of value, the market size was USD  3,27,349.0 Million in 2021.

The prime drivers of the global surface technology market include the extensive demand from the aerospace and defense industry. The growth of the aerospace industry on the backdrop of increased tourism and business travels; both international and domestic, fuel the demand for surface technology to protect for corrosion, finishing and anodizing, as well as new aircraft manufacturing. The increasing demand from automotive industry due to the rising disposable income and rising trend of electric vehicle across the globe also drive the market. Apart from this, the use of Surface technology as an effective alternative of electroplating, electroless plating, and other coating processes, drive the global market.

COVID-19 Impact on the Surface Technology Market:

COVID-19 has had a substantial impact on the industrial sectors such as aerospace, automotive, food & beverages, building & construction, and others sectors as it is causing widespread concern and economic deprivation of industries and individuals all over the globe. As the demand for Surface technology has declined due to production shutdowns, lockdowns imposed in several countries, and disruptions in the supply chain, many OEM manufacturing companies have witnessed drastic declines in revenue. This has had a severe impact on economic activities, resulting in job losses and salary deductions of individuals across supply chains. The outbreak of COVID-19 across regions has resulted in a lockdown of cities, border restrictions, and breakdown of transportation networks. This is projected to have a significant impact on the chemicals & materials supply chains, international trade, and manufacturing operations across the world. All this has caused severe disruptions in production and trade restrictions, significantly affecting Surface technology demand into the market. However, the global Surface technology market had no significant impact as ceramics are one of Surface technology's major applications.

Market Dynamics


  • High demand in the aerospace and defense industry: In the aerospace & defense industry, with the growing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, the use of surface coating technology and materials is increasing. Surface technology are used in gas turbine engines, air vessels, rocket exhaust cones, insulating tiles, space shuttles, structural, hardware, engine components, etc. The surface coating technologies help to extend the operational life of the components in harsh environments. The most used Surface technology in the aerospace and defense industry include plasma transferred arc (PTA) welding, laser cladding, powder welding, flame spraying, high-velocity flame spraying (HVOF), and plasma spraying. The process protects air vessels from corrosion, icing, contaminants, and any accidental damage and thus helps save maintenance costs.


  • Fluctuations in raw material availability: Coating materials available for surface technology include metals, alloys, ceramics, plastics, and composites. Metals such as aluminum, steel, nickel, and copper are used for producing surface technology. Alloys used for surface finishing include tungsten, chrome, titanium, and nickel carbides, while high-velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) coatings, ceramics coatings and other processes include chrome oxide, pure alumina, alumina titanium dioxide, and zirconia yttria. The availability of these raw materials depends upon various factors such as environmental conditions, geopolitical issues, and regulations on mining and processing.


  • Surface technology for additive manufacturing :Additive manufacturing (AM) as a high-tech industry is still evolving though it has already gained importance in the manufacturing sector. With the increased demand for meeting customer needs in terms of product quality and variety, AM technology has been upgraded from rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing. Additive manufacturing is available for any material, including metals, plastics, and biomaterials. Metals have been the traditional materials in the manufacturing sector for centuries.
