Silicon Carbide (SiC) Coating Market 2018: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast To 2028

The global specialty coating market is growing at a good pace. Silicon carbide (SiC) coating is a specialty coating which is made up of compounds of silicon and carbon. Silicon carbide is a synthetically manufactured compound in general. However, it is rarely found in the nature as moissanite. Silicon carbide (SiC) coating is applied on the substrate, either by PVD or by CVD. Because of its expensive application techniques, it is one of the expensive coatings used in the market. However, silicon carbide (SiC) coating has many advantages and therefore, this coating is favored in various industrial applications. Silicon carbide (SiC) coating provides high abrasion resistance, corrosion resistance, erosion resistance and wear resistance. It also offers high thermal conductivity and shock resistance. Chemical inertness of silicon carbide (SiC) coating makes it highly chemically stable and oxidation resistant. The applications of silicon carbide (SiC) coating includes turbine components, wear plates, pump vanes, ball valve parts, seals, bearings and heat exchangers, amongst others. Good mechanical properties of silicon carbide (SiC) coating are expected drive its market during the forecast.
