Diamond Coatings: Introduction

  • Diamond coating is a process through which a uniform layer of diamond is deposited on materials such as glass, plastics, metals, ceramics, and composites. The coating is done by using carbon feed gas, primarily methane diluted by hydrogen to approx. 1-2 mol%, which is passed into the chamber and exposed to a combination of lasers through different technologies. Diamond particles bond to the surface of a material or substrate due to the extreme temperature and pressure. Diamond coating is done to impart exceptional wear resistance, excellent hardness, and enhanced corrosion resistance to substrates.
  • Diamond coatings have gained prominence due to their mechanical, electric, and optical properties. Some of the major benefits include high thermal conductivity, low coefficient of friction, maximum surface hardness, and exceptional wear properties. In terms of application, diamond coatings offer an ideal solution for a wide range of surface performance issues.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Diamond Coatings Market

  • The diamond coatings market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for diamond coated medical devices, metal cutting tools, mechanical, and electronic equipment
  • The diamond coating process entails high capital investment. The process technologies are capital intensive, and the equipment used in these coating technologies require special operating conditions such as high temperature and controlled vacuum conditions for operation. This is restraining the diamond coatings market.

Diamond Coatings: Process Segment

  • Based on process, the diamond coatings market can be segmented into CVD (chemical vapor deposition) and PVD (physical vapor deposition). CVD was the major process segment of the global diamond coatings market in 2020. It is likely to remain the dominating segment between 2021 and 2031.
  • Lower cost and ability to coat various shapes are factors driving the demand for chemical vapor deposition

Diamond Coatings: Substrate Segment

  • Diamond coatings are used on surfaces of various materials. In terms of substrate, the diamond coatings market can be classified into composite substrates, metal substrates, and ceramic substrates.
  • Metal substrates was the major segment of the global market in 2020. It is projected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. Steel is a major metal used to manufacture various components for different industrial applications. This is a key factor driving the demand for diamond coatings.

Diamond Coatings: End-use Segment

  • Based on end-use, the diamond coatings market can be divided into automotive, aerospace, industrial, medical, electronics, and others. Automotive was the leading end-use segment of the diamond coatings market in 2020. It is likely to remain the dominant segment during the forecast period. It is estimated to be followed by the electronics segment.
  • Cutting tools are highly used to manufacture various automotive components. Growth of the automotive industry, especially in Asia Pacific, is likely to propel the demand for diamond coatings in the automotive segment from 2021 to 2031. Diamond coatings have high thermal and electric conductivity. This makes it a unique material for electric and electronic products. This is a key factor augmenting the demand for diamond coatings in the electronics segment.

Covid-19 Impact on Diamond Coatings Market

  • On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. Originating in China, the virus has spread to at least 213 countries and territories around the world.
  • Several governments and private sector businesses are operating at a limited capacity or have ceased operations completely due to recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Manufacture of various consumer goods and other products across the globe has come to a halt due to the unavailability of raw materials, shortage of labor, etc. This is expected to hamper the diamond coatings market.

Asia Pacific to Dominate Diamond Coatings Market

  • Based on region, the global diamond coatings market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. In terms of consumption, Asia Pacific accounted for significant share of the global diamond coatings market in 2020. This trend is likely to continue during the forecast period also. The diamond coatings market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period. Presence of well-established end-user industries such as electronics and automotive is fueling the demand for diamond coatings in Asia Pacific.
  • Increase in investments in component manufacturing, followed by medical devices, in countries such as China and India is anticipated to propel the demand for diamond coatings in these countries between 2021 and 2031. Europe is projected to follow Asia Pacific between 2021 and 2031. Europe is likely to be followed by North America during the forecast period. Europe and North America are mature markets. The markets in these regions are expected to expand at a moderate pace during the forecast period. The market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is anticipated to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period.
