Report Highlights

The global market for the PVD (physical vapor deposition) industry was $9.2 billion in 2010 and $9.9 billion in 2011. BCC projects this market to reach nearly $15 billion by 2016 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5% between 2011 and 2016.

Report Scope

This study encompasses PVD technologies and materials in terms of 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.
