Overview of the global ceramic coating for thermal spray market

The global ceramic coating for thermal spray market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of close to 9% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for thermal spray ceramic coatings from industrial gas turbine (IGT) manufacturers will drive the growth prospects for the global ceramic coating for thermal spray market in the coming years. Thermal spray ceramic coating technology protects the IGT parts from the resultant corrosion and erosion, which result from the extreme mechanical loads under high temperatures. Moreover, this technology also sustains the thermal efficiency at extreme temperatures by enveloping them with a thermal barrier protection.

In terms of geography, the Americas accounted for the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market for the next four years. One of the major factors responsible for the market segment’s growth is the increasing demand for titanium dioxide-based thermal coatings from the aerospace and automotive industries.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global ceramic coating for thermal spray market is highly competitive and diversified due to the presence of a large number of regional and international vendors across the globe. Some of these vendors increasingly offer products at a lower price in comparison to their competitors in order to expand the market share.

Overview of the global emulsifier market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global emulsifier market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 7% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the shale gas boom in North America as one of the primary growth factors for this market. With the shale revolution in countries such as the US, the recent years witnessed several advancements in oil and natural gas production technologies such as the combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. Since this access to domestic energy resources reduces the country’s dependence on imported energy, the government has started encouraging the commercial production of shale natural gas, which is subsequently inducing several companies to start drilling wells. With the increased usage of emulsifiers in drilling, wetting, and gelling fluids, this shale gas boom in North America will significantly fuel the growth of the emulsifiers market in the coming years.

In terms of geographical regions, Europe will be the major revenue contributor to the emulsifying agents market throughout the predicted period. The increased usage of packaged food and functional food, ready-to-eat (RTE) frozen poultry, and the availability of a wide range of flavor varieties will be the major factors fueling market growth in this region. Additionally, the growth of the cosmetics and personal care industry in several

Overview of the global organic pigments market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global organic pigments market to grow at a CAGR of more than 3% between 2017 and 2021. Organic pigments have peculiarly unique properties that ensure hues that other kinds of pigments fail to produce. They are used to provide metallic finishes and elastic properties. Owing to superior property, organic pigments are highly preferred in specialized applications in the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), refinished, and high-end automobile industries. Organic pigments are also being used to improve aesthetics and the functional values in both paints and plastics segments. These pigments are used in paints that can protect against harsh weather, dampness, corrosion, fungi, and other destructive influences on the building. Moreover, some of them are also used as a plasticizer dampened powders that allow functional advantages such as light reflection, heat reflection, opacity, and gas and vapor barrier. With paints and coatings with low VOC content gaining prominence, the market for organic pigments is expected to witness massive growth during the forecast period. 

In terms of geography, APAC is the largest and dominating region in the global market due to the presence of several manufacturers who offer pigments at lower costs in comparison with other regions. APAC is anticipated to lead the market in terms of consumption over the next four years due to increase in infrastructural activities that require paints and coatings with functional benefits.
