Electroplating Market Size and Growth:

The global electroplating market is predicted to experience considerable year-over-year expansion over the foreseen period 2021-2026. Electroplating is a type of metal finishing that has found its application in many applications among various end-user products, such as electrical and electronic, automotive, machinery parts and components, and aerospace and defense.

Rapid urbanization and rapid industrialization are likely to play a crucial role in the rise of the worldwide electroplating market in the coming years. Emerging economies are experiencing intense industrialization and construction activity as various manufacturers try to profit by investing in the untapped region. Electroplating helps manufacturers to use inexpensive metals, for example, steel or zinc for almost any product, and then to protect the product, the metallic coating of other metals is employed to protect it from corrosion improve its prospects and others according to the customer's choice. Electroplating or electroplating is defined as an electrochemical metal finishing process in which metal ions dissolved in a solution are deposited onto a substrate using electricity. This process creates a protective layer on the substrate that provides resistance to corrosion and improves the overall appearance of the product. Under the mechanism, the electric current passes through a solution of dissolved metal ions and the metal object to be coated.

Electroplating Market Trends:

Various objects made of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, as well as plastics, are coated with different electroplating metals such as tin, zinc, silver, copper, chrome, gold, palladium, platinum, and aluminum. This is likely to promote the demand for electroplating in the coming years.

Electroplating Market Recent Developments in the industry:

  • Uyemura launches new electrolytic nickel technology. Each year, FABTECH provides opportunities to meet suppliers, see the latest finishing products and technologies, learn from industry experts, and network with others.
  • LPKF launches a desktop electroplating system. LPKF Laser & Electronics introduced the MiniContac RS, a desktop plating system.

Electroplating Market Drivers

The global electroplating market is predicted to record a considerable expansion rate during the foreseen period. Electroplating is most commonly employed for decorative purposes or to prevent corrosion of a metal. It is a process of plating one metal plate on another using the hydrolysis technique. Some of the specific types of electroplating are silver, copper, and chrome. Electroplating is often used in verticals like automotive, aerospace and defense, electrical and electronic, and machine parts. Strong call for electroplating from the electrical and electronics industry, especially in the manufacturing of components for televisions, refrigerators and air conditioners, is predicted to drive the expansion of the global electroplating market. Many manufacturers are changing the electroplating process, for example, adopting the dry process rather than the wet process, as this reduces worker exposure and waste generation. Furthermore, the shift in manufacturer preference towards water-based cleaning agents over organic agents is also predicted to drive the expansion of the global electroplating market during the foreseen period.

Restraints in the Electroplating Market:

However, environmental concerns and the high cost associated with the process are predicted to be the main factors hampering the expansion of the world market.

Opportunities in the Electroplating Market:

The growing call for electroplating from aerospace and defense applications to provide a suitable finish to machinery is predicted to drive the expansion of the electroplating market. Finishing generally involves the process of coating metal that adheres to the surface of the material and provides a protective bond. Additionally, the process also provides corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, heat resistance, and friction wear to defense industry machines. Therefore, the escalating call for electroplating for the above application in the defense industry is likely to be driving the expansion of the market.

Challenges in the Electroplating Market:

Governments in various regions impose certain regulations on the electroplating process due to the emission of harmful chemicals and gases, which are released into the atmosphere. This factor is supposed to hamper this business expansion in anticipated years.
