Hard coating or or hard anodizing is an electrochemical process which is applied as a corrosion resistant coating, chemically bonded to the surfaces of aluminum and aluminum alloy parts or pieces to creates a surface coating with hardness characteristics second only to diamonds. Globally expanding healthcare segment is expected to remain key growth driver for hard coating during the period of study.
This report identifies the hard coatings market size in for the year 2015-2017, and forecast of the same for year 2022. It also highlights the potential growth opportunities in the coming years, while also reviewing the market drivers, restraints, growth indicators, challenges, market dynamics, competitive landscape, and other key aspects with respect to hard coatings market.
Geographically Asia-Pacific dominated the hard coatings market owing to presence of large number of end use industries employing hard coatings into various applications. Asia-Pacific was followed by North America and Europe as the second and third largest markets for hard coatings. However Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the fastest growing market during the period of study driven by rapidly expanding industrial base and growing production in the region as a result of increasing consumption of end products in the region as well as globally.
