High-performance ceramic coatings (HPCC) are generally thin layers of ceramic coated on metal or ceramic substrates to offer better resistance against wear, corrosion and temperature. HPCC is considered one of the most important segments in the advanced ceramics industry. High-performance ceramic coatings offer protection against corrosion and erosion in a wide range of applications. These coatings have the ability to sustain at elevated temperatures of up to 15000C. Additionally, these coatings offer resistance to thermal shocks and provide protection to vulnerable components. The materials used in the formulation of coatings include oxides, carbides, nitrides, alumina, yittria and zirconium.

Based on technology, the high-performance ceramic coatings market is classified into thermal spray coatings, physical vapor deposition (PVD), chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and sol-gel processing, among others. The thermal spray coatings segment has been accounting for the largest demand for high-performance ceramic coatings over the past few years. Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) was the second-largest technology in the high-performance ceramic coatings market. It accounted for around 16% of the global HPCC market in 2013. The technology is likely to lose its market share over the forecast period due to increased demand for eco-friendly technologies. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) is anticipated to be the fastest growing technology in the high-performance ceramic coatings market. PVD technology has the ability to utilize any type of coating material on various substrates. Hence, PVD is considered a lucrative technology by coating services providers and manufacturers. Other technologies such as sol-gel processing, electroplating, and hybrid physical-chemical vapor deposition (HPCVD) have been gaining increasing importance in the high-performance ceramic coatings market over the past few years.
