Report Overview

The global cold gas spray coating market size was valued at USD 963.2 million in 2019 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7% from 2020 to 2027. The rising adoption of cold gas spray coating in aerospace and automotive aftermarket repair and maintenance activities is projected to assist the growth of the market over the forecast period. Cold spray coating technology, used for decades as a coating process, has recently revolutionized the component repairment field in various industries, especially in the aerospace industry.

U.S. cold gas spray coating market size

It had a profound impact on reducing sustainment costs in the aerospace industry, thus gaining the attention of manufacturers and end-users in the market. The growing application of cold gas spray coatings in a wide range of materials for specific applications, including repair and surface finishing, is expected to drive the product demand in the coming years. In addition, the growing demand for consumer electronics owing to the factors, such as increasing disposable income, rapid urbanization, expanding middle class, and shifting spending priorities of consumers in the emerging countries, such as China and India, is further expected to propel the product demand in the coming years.

Furthermore, the rising application of advanced nanostructured and amorphous materials in various end-use industries, including electrical and electronics and medical, is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the manufacturers of cold gas spray coatings. Since nano-crystalline materials are temperature-sensitive, the cold gas spray coating can effectively be used without hampering their beneficial microstructure. These materials are now being widely used for manufacturing various advanced electrical equipment, such as sensors, electric boards, and data management systems.

However, government-mandated shutdowns, temporarily halting mining operations across the world, and several import tariffs imposed by the U.S. government owing to the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China are expected to bring further volatility in the prices of raw materials in the coming years. All these factors are expected to restrain the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Technology Insights

The high-pressure cold gas spray coating segment led the market and accounted for more than 57.0% share of the global revenue in 2019. High-pressure cold gas spray coating technology is widely used as a surface repair and coating technology in a broad range of industries, such as aerospace, automotive, and electronics. It is majorly used in repairing metallic components to improve the performance and extend the working life of equipment in the aforementioned industries. High-pressure cold gas spray coating technology utilizes the pressure of up to 50 bar with an axial injection of feedstock particles that are heated to a temperature of 11000 C, which allows higher metal deposition rate with exceptionally low oxide and porosity levels during the material build-up process.

Low-pressure cold gas spraying is a coating technique, which is generally considered for repairing light and high-ductile metallic components used in various end-use industries. Low-pressure cold gas spray technology utilizes ambient air as the propellant and operates at low pressure and low operating temperature conditions. These features make it a low-cost surface repair and coating technology and provide a competitive edge from the high-pressure cold gas spray technology. However, the rising usage of metal alloys and low-ductile components in the aerospace and automotive industries is expected to limit the growth of the low-pressure cold gas spray technology in the coming years.

End-use Insights

The transportation end-use segment led the market and accounted for more than 46.0% share of the global revenue in 2019. The growing demand for cold gas spray coatings for application in coating and repairing of various components in the aerospace and automotive industries is projected to boost the demand for cold gas spray coatings over the forecast period. Cold gas spray coatings offer low porosity, excellent bonding, and oxide-free coating in the solid-state as well as at low temperatures, which make them suitable for application in the automotive and aerospace industries.

In addition, the application of cold gas spray coating helps increase the service life as well as improve the vehicle's performance by protecting the parts against wear, corrosion, fretting, and erosion. Most automotive manufacturers use cold gas spray coating as an alternative method to offer a high level of reliability, quality, and durability in low-cost base materials.

Global cold gas spray coating market share

The rising demand for lightweight and high-performance materials in the automotive industry is projected to boost product demand over the forecast period. In addition, favorable government regulations regarding the application of lightweight materials to improve fuel efficiency are expected to drive the demand for cold gas spray coatings in the automotive industry.

In recent years, the cold gas spray coating technology has witnessed significant demand in the restoration and repair of housings for Integrated Drive Generators (IDG), which are used in commercial aircraft, such as Boeing 747, 737NG, and 777 and Airbus A330, A320, and A340. This is attributed to the high feasibility and economic viability of the cold gas spray coating technology in complexly designed components made of magnesium or aluminum alloys.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market and accounted for over 38.0% share of the global revenue in 2019. This is attributed to strong demand from the end-use segments, such as transportation, utility, and electrical and electronics. Favorable government regulations pertaining to the use of a lightweight and high-performance components in the automotive sector as an alternative to alloys and metals are expected to drive the regional demand for cold gas spray coatings over the forecast period. However, the shifting of manufacturing industries, such as the electrical and electronics industry, to the Asian countries with low wages, especially India and China, has hampered the regional demand, particularly in non-automotive end-use sectors.

Europe emerged as the second-largest regional market in 2019 and is expected to maintain its position over the forecast period. The presence of major countries with high military and defense spending, such as Russia, Germany, France, and the U.K., is propelling the demand for coatings, especially for protection purposes of aircraft and satellite components. This is creating significant opportunities for the manufacturers of cold gas spray coatings in the region.

However, the outbreak of COVID-19 in countries, such as the U.S., China, India, Brazil, and France, is anticipated to hamper the demand for the product, majorly in the automotive, aerospace, electrical, and electronics industries, in the near future. A majority of operations in the aforementioned industries have been halted or operating at half production capacity in order to follow social distancing measures to contain the spread of coronavirus.
