Global Metalized Ceramic Substrates Market: Outlook
Under the metallization process, a thin metallic coating is applied to the area of a substrate to enhance its properties. Various methods of metallization are tungsten and manganese plating, silver copper plating, tin plating, and nickel plating. The surface coating can prevent the metal layer oxidation. Physical properties such as wettability and brazing improve in case of metalized ceramic substrates. Metalized ceramic substrates can withstand high heat and provide resistance to corrosion. These materials possess lower density, yet better wear and tear resistance. Metalized ceramics substrates are used in a wide range of end-use applications in industries such as aerospace & aviation, automotive, military, medical, and information & technology.
Increase in demand for compact microelectronic solutions is one of the key factors driving the global metallized ceramic substrates market. However, high procurement costs and high raw material costs are estimated to hinder the growth of global metalized ceramic substrates market.
