Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) Market: Overview

Diamond-like carbon (DLC) is primarily employed in advanced coating applications due to its tribological properties such as high hardness, wear resistance, and abrasive power. Two major types of DLCs are available in the market: pure DLC and mixed DLC. DLCs are largely used in automotive and medical end-use industries. DLC based materials with special wettability have been successfully employed in the development of superhydrophilic and superhydrophobic surfaces. This has led to improved performance as well as durability. DLCs are used to coat auto parts in the automotive industry, while they are used to coat surgical devices in the medical industry.

Different types of DLC coatings are used to provide a wide range of mechanical properties. Tetrahedral amorphous carbon (ta-C) is the hardest, thin, and glossy form of DLC. Coatings based on DLC can be extremely hard and give low coefficients of friction. Properties of DLC can be evaluated by the nano-indentation method, scratch and wear, and friction testing. Advanced microscopic technologies such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) can be employed for the evaluation of the mechanism of deformation. DLC coating can be produced through advanced deposition technologies such as PVD (Pulsed Vapor Deposition) and CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition). These advanced technologies include sputtering, cathodic arc deposition, pulsed laser deposition, ion beam deposition, and plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition.

In terms of type, the global DLC market can be classified into pure DLC and mixed DLC. In terms of the commonly employed application, the global DLC market can be segmented into drill bits & milling cutters, saws & blades, dies & molds, inserts, and others (including hobs and broaches). Based on end-user, the global DLC market can be divided into automotive, packaging, medical, electronics, cosmetics, and others (including aerospace and industrial).

Rise in demand for DLC coating in automotive engine components is a key factor driving the global DLC market. DLC coatings help increase the shelf life of automotive engine components by decreasing the coefficient of friction. Increase in demand for DLC coatings in the medical Industry is also a major factor boosting the DLC market due to the emerging demand in orthopedic, cardiovascular, and dental applications. DLC coatings are employed in orthopedic applications to reduce wear, corrosion, and debris formation. DLC coatings are primarily employed in the medical industry to coat biomedical devices, which are used in cardiovascular and orthopedic applications.

Constant research activities in automotive, electronics, and medical industries is likely to create new opportunities for DLC manufacturers. According to the RoHS guidelines, medical device manufacturers are focusing on moving toward greener engineering technologies such as DLC coating materials, as these are biocompatible and can work in a wide range of temperatures.
