Growth of Stationary Power Plants Bolsters Market Growth

The heat produced by turbines is attenuated by thermal barrier coatings. This ensures that the functioning as well as the output of the turbines in enhanced, which in turn increases the overall productivity of industries where the turbines are deployed. Stationary power plants have emerged as a key sector wherein gas turbines are extensively used. The growth of these plants pushes market growth and offers lucrative growth opportunities for market players. Aerospace and automotive are amongst other industries that deploy gas turbines, which is another important standpoint for market growth. The technological developed in the field of oxy-fuels and electron beam physical vapor disposition have also propelled demand within the market. The performance of automobile engines defines the utility and performance of the vehicle, thus, making it integral for manufacturers to retain the integrity of these engines. Since thermal barrier coatings play an important role in maintaining the temperature within and outside an automobile engine, the market grows hand-in-hand with the automobile industry. The developing countries are at the forefront of market growth due to the prominence of several industries. The governments across these countries are focusing on enhancing the production standards of key industries such as automobiles, aerospace, and power. This also acts as a substantial contributor to market growth.

Cost of Synthesizing Coatings Hampers Demand

Several types of thermal barrier coatings are used across a range of industries. Amongst these types is the high-performance ceramic coating that hold utility across a wide range of industrial processes. Although the price of raw materials used to synthesize ceramic coatings isn’t high, the process employed for manufacturing these coatings is exorbitantly high-priced. Due to this reason, the market suffers an obstruction to growth. Nevertheless, the popularity of thermal barrier coatings across a wide array of industries is expected to keep bolstering market growth.
