Metal finishing is the process of placing the metal coating on the surface of a metallic part, referred to as a substrate. It can also involve the implementation of a process for cleaning and polishing. Metal finishing chemicals are used to treat the surface of metal products by forming a thin coating to enhance the appearance, function, or performance of the product, and increase marketability. Electrolytic plating, electroless plating, and chemical and electrochemical conversion processes are widely used processes for metal finishing.
The global metal finishing market was estimated at ~USD 95 billion in 2020 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% from 2020 to 2027 due to increasing demand from end-use industries, such as automotive, aerospace, construction, and electrical and electronics. Automotive and electronics applications accounted for more than 60% share in the global metal finishing Industry. Moreover, increasing expenditure in aerospace R&D by various governments including the U.S., Germany, France, the U.K., Poland, and Sweden is expected to fuel the demand for metal finishing during the forecast period. APAC is expected to witness a CAGR of ~6% over the next five years, owing to growing automotive and construction spending coupled with rising disposable income in the region.
The cost of metal finishing depends on the process. In most metal finishing processes metal finishing chemicals are used. The cost of metal finishing chemicals is the major cost driver of metal finishing services. It accounted for more than 50% of the overall cost of metal finishing. Other key components include processing costs, machinery costs, utility costs, labor costs, etc. Metal finishing suppliers majorly outsource the operations to APAC due to the high availability of raw materials and low-cost labor. It also reduces the transportation and logistics cost of metal finishing and increases profitability.
