Thermal spraying is a process of coating melted metallic or non-metallic materials on a surface. Materials are melted in rod, wire, or powder form. They usually form a thick coating over the applied materials. Flame, arc, plasma, high-velocity oxy-fuel coating, detonation, cold, and laser sprays are the different types of thermal sprays present in the market.
One of the major trends in the market is the increased demand for thermal spray technology, due to the technology’s increased flexibility and reliability is driving the growth of this market. However, the market is still challenged by the high total cost of ownership. The need to hire skilled employees and train them effectively and the need for continuous maintenance and monitoring of generators to detect and rectify any failure in thermal spray equipment require huge investment by the various end-user industries.
