The global electroplating market sizereached US$ 16.07 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 20.71 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.10% during 2023-2028. The significant growth in the automotive industry, increasing process utilization in the electrical and electronics industry, and the integration of nanotechnology represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Electroplating refers to the process of depositing a thin metallic layer on a surface using the electrolysis method. Gold, chromium, copper, zinc, silver, platinum, tin, lead, and nickel are some of the metals used in electroplating. It involves multiple steps, including preparation of substrates, cleaning, pre-treatment, electroplating, and post-treatment. Electroplating is widely used to improve appearance, lend surface properties, protect substrates, increase thickness, enhance conductivity, and restore damaged objects. It is a cost-effective, eco-friendly, and highly beneficial process that enhances durability, offers a high-quality finish, increases aesthetic appeal, and provides resistance against corrosion, wear and tear, chemicals, moisture, and heat. As a result, electroplating finds extensive applications across the automotive, defense, aerospace, electrical and electronics, power generation, healthcare, and construction industries.
Electroplating Market Trends:
The significant growth in the automotive industry across the globe is one of the primary factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Electroplating is widely used to coat various automotive parts, such as bumpers, wheels, grills, engine blocks, pistons, transmission gears, brake calipers, nuts, bolts, fasteners, emblems, logos, and frames, which improves durability, enhances lifespan, and protects vehicles from damages. Furthermore, the increasing utilization of the electroplating process in the electrical and electronics industry to deposit a thin metallic layer on printed circuit boards (PCBs), connectors, integrated circuits (ICs), semiconductor packages, hard disk drives (HDDs), and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the integration of nanotechnology to deposit extremely fine coatings, which reduce weight, increase protection, improve lubricity, enhance adhesion, and save resources, is positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, the increasing demand for green electroplating techniques that utilize non-toxic and eco-friendly solutions to minimize the adverse environmental impact of the process is favoring the market growth. Apart from this, the widespread process adoption in the defense industry to coat weapons, ammunition, protective gear, armor, communication systems, and marine equipment is providing a thrust to the market growth. Moreover, increasing process application in the healthcare industry to produce surgical instruments, heart valves, orthopedic implants, and pacemakers is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including rising demand for customized electroplating processes, increasing investment in the research and development (R&D) of advanced electroplating techniques, and widespread process adoption in renewable energy generation to coat solar panels, fuel cells, and batteries, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
