This report is an update of an earlier (mid-2014) BCC Research study of the global market for physical vapor deposition (PVD) equipment, and the material deposited by the process and deposition services. BCC’s goal in updating the 2014 study is to determine the current status of the global market for PVD industry, with an emphasis on developments during the past two years.

We also seek to assess the worldwide growth potential for this technology from 2016 through 2021, with a particular interest in the types of equipment and materials being used in consumer and industrial applications. We wish to understand the status of the industry in relation to the continuing global economic and currency problems and the impact they had on equipment demand. Our major objective is to present a comprehensive analysis of the PVD industry and project its future course.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY PVD has been a proven technology over the past several decades. Its use has made possible more sophisticated manufacturing and fabrication techniques. Smaller sized products have also broadened the demand for vapor deposited materials. New and existing products require materials that can be delivered by vacuum deposition of films on a growing variety of substrates. We have examined the current position of PVD technologies and materials in eight major industries. We are interested in what materials and types of PVD systems are being used to meet demands for more sophisticated products.

INTENDED AUDIENCE We present an overview of deposition technologies and future trends, along with a global industry structure, including leading manufacturers of equipment and service providers. A review of the PVD industry’s competitiveness in each of the eight market sectors is also provided. Within each industry, there is an overview of key applications, the advantages of using PVD, an analysis of market factors that will impact demand, shipments for 2015 and 2016, and estimated shipments for 2021.

This study will be of interest to those in the microelectronics business, manufacturers of cutting tools, specialty packagers, maker of storage equipment and media, companies in the solar energy business, manufacturers of automotive and aerospace parts, medical device makers, and those in the optics industry. It will also be of interest to companies engaged in the manufacture of deposition equipment and materials and to surface coaters.

SCOPE OF REPORT This study encompasses PVD technologies and materials regarding application, properties, and processes. BCC Research analyzes the major types of PVD systems and materials used to manufacture products in eight key industries. Applications are discussed, as are properties imparted by PVD. Trends in demand also are reviewed, and their impacts on PVD are assessed.

Market drivers within each industry are identified. Materials deposited by PVD are analyzed according to basic functions (e.g., wear resistance, abrasion and corrosion resistance, conductivity and barrier protection). The value of PVD equipment shipments is projected within each industry by type of system. Material shipment values are projected, along with PVD service revenues. Technological issues and trends are reviewed, and other influential factors such as economic conditions and standards are discussed.
Because this is a global study, BCC Research analyzes domestic and international technological issues and economic considerations.

BCC Research presents an analysis of the value of PVD systems, materials deposited and services provided by type of system, material, and industry segment. Estimated value is what manufacturers and material providers have paid in current dollars. Then, based on our surveys, we analyze industry growth in relation to the growth of PVD technology, calculate estimates of growth, and forecast shipments for 2019.

BCC Research interviewed approximately 130 companies to obtain data for this report. Included were manufacturers of PVD equipment, material suppliers, deposition service providers, industrial and consumer product manufacturing companies, and various end users of products fabricated using the PVD process. Additional data were obtained from government information, trade associations, industry and financial sources, and an exhaustive review of the technical literature.

ANALYST'S CREDENTIALS The author of the original study on which this updated report is based is Robert H. Moran. research analyst and editor at BCC Research. The topics of his reports range from various deposition technologies to displays, solar energy, and solid-state lighting. The analyst responsible for updating the report is Andrew McWilliams, a partner in the Boston-based international technology and marketing consulting firm, 43rd Parallel, LLC. Mr. McWilliams is the author of several other BCC studies of advanced coating materials and technologies, such as AVM015H High-Performance Ceramic Coatings: Markets and Technologies; IFT009F Global Markets for Conformal Coatings in Electronics; AVM025G Diamond, Diamond-like and CBN Films and Coating Products; and AVM016G Sol-Gel Processing of Ceramics and Glass.
