Market Segmentation:

The global hard coatings coating market has been segmented on the basis of material type, a deposition technique, application, end-use industry, and region. On the basis of the material type, the market is divided into borides, nitrides, carbon-based, oxides, multi-component coatings, and others. Among these material types, the borides are growing at the highest growth rate due to the significant beneficial properties such as hard surface, greater durability, and shine.

By the deposition technique, the market is classified into two: physical vapor deposition (PVD) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD). The PVD is the largest segment among them and is estimated to retain its dominance by growing at a healthy CAGR in the coming years. This is attributed to easy applicability and lesser complex operation involved in this technique, along with the less relative cost.

Based on the applications, the global hard coatings market is categorized into cutting tools, decorative coatings, gears, bearings, optics, cylinders, pneumatic coatings, and others. The cutting tool application segment is projected to register a significant growth dung the review period on account of rapid industrialization in emerging industrial economies namely India, China, South Korea, Malaysia, and some African countries.
