The global market for sputtering targets and sputtered films is highly fragmented with a large number of manufacturers present in the market, and manufacturers are focusing on expansion and acquisition activities to gain their competitive edges and to satisfy the increased demand. Many key players are focusing on significant investments in research and development (R&D) to introduce new compounding technologies that can increase product efficiency.

Sputtering targets and sputtered films are segmented into two primary segments -
- Material type.
- Application.

Sputtering targets are high-value products needed to manufacture thin films during sputtering, one of the most popular coating processes used by the advanced materials industry. Over the years, sputtering targets, based on a large number of materials and with various geometrical configurations, have become available to satisfy the requirements of an increasing range of applications.

These applications can be grouped broadly according to the following categories: electronics (including microelectronics, data storage devices and advanced displays), mechanical/chemical, energy, optical coatings and others (such as life sciences and nanotechnology).

This study details the latest developments in sputtering target technology, including target types, materials, fabrication processes and applications. It also provides a detailed market analysis by segment (material type, application and region), describing technical aspects and trends that will affect future growth of this market.

As shown in the Summary Table, the global market for sputtering targets is estimated to be valued at $REDACTED billion in 2020. A total of REDACTED million targets are projected to be used in 2020 for depositing almost REDACTED billion square meters of thin films for integrated circuits, other circuit devices, passive components,data storage devices, advanced displays, photovoltaic cells, fuel cells, batteries, protective coatings,automotive and architectural glass, medical implants, sensors and instrumentation, and other applications.

The electronics sector (including microelectronics, data storage media and advanced displays) is the largest consumer of sputtering targets and is estimated to account for REDACTED% of all revenues in 2020. Growth within this industry is being driven by the rapid expansion of the advanced display market, which has offset, during the past two years, the reduced consumption of targets by the semiconductor and data storage media industries.

The energy sector also accounts for a significant share of the market, at REDACTED% of the total in 2020, although consumption of sputtering targets for fabrication of solar cells has decreased markedly since 2011. All the remaining applications have been characterized by moderate growth since 2011 resulting in a combined share of REDA CTED% in 2020.
