The global plasma surface treatment system market is estimated to be valued at USD 5.3 billion in 2018, and it is projected to reach USD 8.6 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period from 2019-2028. The major drivers for this growth are increasing demand for automotive electronics PCBs as they have increased use of cheaper materials which makes them more susceptible to corrosion and oxidation problems; increase in the number of medical devices sold worldwide due to an aging population and technological advancements leading to various innovations that make healthcare more affordable; and high adoption rates among others such as consumer electronics, textiles, electrical components, etc., which will create new opportunities in the near future with respect to applications of plasma surface treatment.
A plasma surface treatment system is an industrial device that imparts a coating on surfaces. The most common purpose of this process is to provide protection against corrosion and wear. The process is also used for aesthetic reasons, such as to impart a particular color or pattern. Typically the device uses an argon gas-based plasma discharge and can operate in air. The machine must be grounded so that it does not receive static electricity while operating. It consists of three components: power supply, high voltage generator (HVG), and a dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) chamber.
A plasma surface treatment system is usually used to apply paint or some other type of coating, such as an anti-microbial agent, onto the object being treated. The HVG produces high voltage pulses that create an ionized gas cloud called plasma in the DBD chamber. The plasma is then accelerated through the discharge tube to impinge on a grounded metal object, such as a car part or PCB board.
On the basis of type, the global plasma surface treatment system market is segmented into atmospheric pressure type and low pressure/vacuum plasma type.
An atmospheric pressure type plasma surface treatment system is a small machine that uses an electrical discharge in air or nitrogen gas (at low pressures) to generate and control ionic, neutralizing, oxidizing, or reducing gases. The purpose of the device is to modify surfaces by removing unwanted materials such as corrosion products and thin films from metals and plastics.
Low pressure/vacuum plasma type is a process to clean, etch and also form the surface of materials. The surfaces that are being treated in this way can be organic or non-organic. Low pressure/vacuum plasmas have been used for years as effective methods of penetrating through tougher coatings such as aluminum oxide or silicon nitride. As a result, the process can be used for cleaning and etching of surfaces that are difficult to clean as well as surface treatments such as anodizing which is applied on metals in order to form films with protective properties
On the basis of application, the global plasma surface treatment system market is segmented into automotive, electronics, PCB, medical, and others.
The automotive industry is one of the major markets for plasma surface treatment. The demand comes from car manufacturers to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, but also an increasing use in new materials due to legislation on pollutant gas emission and vehicle quality requirements.
In electronics, plasma treatments are mainly applied to surfaces for the purpose of removal and passivation. Plasma treatment is used as a modification process that can be performed before or after other fabrication processes such as etching, deposition, coating, etc., in order to improve the surface properties (i.e., cleanliness) and modify its physical properties (i.e., wettability).
The application of the plasma surface treatment system in PCB is to remove particles and contaminants from the surfaces, improving product quality. The process removes solder mask coating for better adhesion and etching effectiveness while reducing contamination on components such as chips which improves performance or lifespan.
The medical applications for plasma surface treatments use a process called argon plasma etching. This is an electropolishing technique that uses ionized molecules of the gas to strip away layers from metals, semiconductors, or other materials and create surfaces with smoother features. One example application in this area is dental implants where different coatings need to be applied onto various parts of the implant’s surface. Using reactive gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, and ammonia along with ultraviolet light can help improve bonding between certain types of plastics and metal alloys before they enter into contact during manufacturing processes.
On the basis of region, the global plasma surface treatment system market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the global market during the forecast period owing to the high demand for plasma systems in automotive electronics applications such as PCB (printed circuit board) surface treatment and others from various key end-user industries.
North America is expected to be the largest market for plasma surface treatment systems, owing to rising demand from local manufacturers and suppliers. The region has emerged as a major player in terms of domestic products because it offers a number of benefits such as low labor costs, less stringent environmental regulations, availability of raw materials at competitive prices, and lower shipping cost due to proximity. In addition, North American countries also offer beneficial tax incentives which have been instrumental in boosting investments into R&D activities. All these factors are driving the growth prospects for this regional market over the forecast period (2019-2028).
In Europe too there has been an increasing trend towards adoption by automotive OEMs who are looking for more cost-effective and environmentally friendlier ways of treating their metal parts.
The Asia Pacific region is the fastest-growing market for plasma surface treatment systems owing to rising demand from local manufacturers, suppliers, electrical contractors as well as automotive OEMs in this region. In addition, The Middle East & Africa (MEA) market currently accounts for low penetration with a negligible share of global revenue however it will emerge as one of the key markets during the forecasting period due to rapid industrialization and economic development taking place in high growth economies such as India, Brazil, and China.
A major factor driving the growth of the global plasma surface treatment system market is the increasing demand for automotive electronics PCB and medical applications. The increased usage in these applications will boost the production rate which, in turn, will increase the industry's revenue. This trend is expected to continue owing to growing awareness among people about the quality and affordable medical treatments with minimal risk involved.
Another factor supporting the global plasma surface treatment system market is rising investments in research and development. The reason for this trend is that new technological innovations, such as the use of nano-coating, are being introduced to produce high-quality products with enhanced performance levels. This will lead to a shift in customer preferences from traditional materials like steel or aluminum towards nanotechnology-based ones which have several advantages over conventional methods – durability against corrosion and wear & tear among them.
The third driving force behind the growth of the global plasma surface treatment system market can be attributed to increasing acceptance by government authorities across key regions. Regulations in place mandate higher emission standards for vehicles manufactured within their country's borders; these measures prompt OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) to introduce the usage of nanotechnology-based surface treatment systems on their products for better performance.
