DUBLIN, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qt7s7n/sputter_coating) has announced the addition of the "Sputter Coating Market by Target Material (Pure Material, Compound), by Substrate (Metal, Glass, Plastic, Semiconductor), by Application (Architecture, Electronics, Optical, Tribological & Decorative Coating) & by Geography - Global Forecast to 2020" report to their offering.

The overall sputter coating market is expected to grow to USD 5.6 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 4.96% from 2015 to 2020.

Sputter coating technology is used for thin film deposition of target material on the desired surface called substrate. In sputter coating a target is bombarded with heavy gas atoms (usually argon but air is a fair substitute). Metal atoms ejected from the target by the ionized gas cross the plasma to deposit onto any surface, and this process is used to form a desired coating on the substrate. It is the popular physical vapor deposition technique used in application such as optics (for e.g. architectural glass, reflectors, lenses), optoelectronics (solar cells, photodiodes, liquid crystal displays - LCD), electronics (for e.g. microchips,), the memory technology (for e.g. laser discs, magneto-optical media), the surface protection (tools, machine parts), or the barrier technology (diffusion barriers for e.g.in flexible packing).

The report segments the sputter coating market based on material type (pure material, alloy and compounds), by substrate type (Ceramic, Metal & dielectric, Glass, Plastic, Textile and Others), and by application (Automotive & Transport, Architecture, Microelectronics, Data storage, Electronics, Display, Energy, Lighting, Medical, Defense & Security, Optical Coating, tribological coating, decorative coating and others), and by geography (North America, APAC, Europe, and the Rest of the world). Further, it contains market size estimations, and analyses the trends in the market.

The sputter coating market has seen a high growth in the recent years. The demand for consumer electronic devices with advance display technology (smart phones, LCDs, tablets laptops), automotive electronics, advance medical & defense and optoelectronics devices (solar cells, photo diode) had significantly increased which is driving the market for sputter coating as sputter coating technology is used in these applications.

Some of the companies involved in the market are JX Nippon Mining & Metals Corporation (Japan), Tosoh SMD Inc. (U.S.), Hitachi Metals Ltd. (Japan), Mitsui Mining & Smelting Co., Ltd. (Japan), Umicore (Belgium), and Hereaus Deutschland Gmbh & Co. Kg. (Germany)
