This study encompasses PVD technologies and materials regarding application, properties, and processes. BCC Research analyzes the major types of PVD systems and materials used to manufacture products in eight key industries. Applications are discussed, as are properties imparted by PVD. Trends in demand also are reviewed, and their impacts on PVD are assessed.
Market drivers within each industry are identified. Materials deposited by PVD are analyzed according to basic functions (e.g., wear resistance, abrasion and corrosion resistance, conductivity and barrier protection). The value of PVD equipment shipments is projected within each industry by type of system. Material shipment values are projected, along with PVD service revenues. Technological issues and trends are reviewed, and other influential factors such as economic conditions and standards are discussed.
Because this is a global study, BCC Research analyzes domestic and international technological issues and economic considerations.
