NEW YORK, March 1 , 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Anodizing is a metal finishing process that enhances the quality of the metal, protects it from environmental damage and finally makes it aesthetically pleasing. Anodizing imparts color stability and durability, particularly for aluminum. The extensive positive attributes achieved in addition to the ease of operations makes the anodizing markets highly attractive.

Film thickness of 5 and 25 microns can be achieved by anodizing which can be customized according to industry requirements. Choosing the right process for the right application is very important for anodizing to attain durability of the substrate. While many metals can be treated with anodizing, aluminum and magnesium are the most significant.

This research service titled, "Emerging Opportunities for Anodizing Processes" captures the recent trends in the field of anodizing processes for various industries with emphasis on the emerging technology trends and developments. The research service also highlights the key application markets for anodizing processes and a deep dive into the top application segments namely automotive, aviation, energy, medical, photocatalytic and a host of others along with the current innovation landscape. An opportunity evaluation was done to identify the top industries for anodizing processes, namely automotive and medical sectors.

A deep dive assessment of these industries are carried out as a part of the research along with a roadmap for anodizing process to explain how the technology is likely to evolve in the future and identifies key opportunities for anodizing processes.

Key Findings

Anodizing is a widely preferred process that has been adopted in many industries such as automotive, electronics, energy, architecture, and medical devices. Anodizing scores over another types of coating because of various advantages, especially in coating durability, improvement of physicochemical properties, and coating thickness . However, active participation such as collaborations and mergers are needed .

Increase in demand for anodized aluminum, especially for automotive and other applications, is a major driver for the anodizing industry. Furthermore, advancements in surface kinetics and the ability to modify physicochemical properties of the material are likely to propel this industry in the next years. A key barrier for this industry is the highly competitive and dense market, owing to the anodizing industry being dominated by small batch anodizers.

For anodizing processes there is need of research efforts even when then market is mature as, most of the requirements converge to a single theme, which is, improvement of physicochemical properties without sacrificing the aesthetic value of the end product in any way.
