Sputter Coatings Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016-2026

LONDON, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sputtering is an advanced technology prominently used in electronics manufacturing wherein coatings of thickness in the range of 3–5 micro meter are obtained. The material that is to be coated exists either in planar or rotary form—termed as sputter target, while the product surface on to which the coating is to be obtained is called "substrate". Sputter targets are made up of Metal and Elements, Alloys and Compounds. There are over 200 types of sputter targets used across diverse industries. Sputter coating is mainly used for generating transparent conductive oxide (TCO) film on the substrate, which is used in various applications such as flat panel displays, solar panels, and semiconductors among others. The global consumption of sputter coating targets is expected to be pegged at 16,106.0 MT by 2026 end.

Growing demand for smartphones to positively impact the global sputter coatings market

Sputter coating is prominently used in flat panel displays and this is expected to drive the global sputter coatings market owing to a rise in demand across the globe. Growing demand for smartphones, OLED, and LED screens among others in turn is expected to drive the demand for sputter targets over the forecast period. Along with this, growing demand for semiconductors and microelectronics has also stimulated the sputter targets demand over the forecast period. Global semiconductor production is forecast to witness a steady growth of around 6% over 2016–2026, which is anticipated to boost the global sputter coatings market. Furthermore, government investment in solar energy projects helps increase the demand for solar panels. Owing to a rise in demand for high efficiency thin film solar panels across the globe, there is an increase in the demand for sputter targets. Government regulations in developed regions such as North America and Europe pertaining to infrastructure development i.e. zero energy buildings will lead to an increased demand of the low-e glass that will in turn increase the demand for sputter targets. These factors are expected to boost growth of the global sputter coatings market over the forecast period (2016 – 2026).

However, many industries are focussed on the development of alternative methods for effective coatings, and this is likely to adversely impact the demand for sputter targets. The variation in efficiency of coating and price fluctuation are other factors that are expected to restrict the growth of the global sputter coatings market.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
