Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a chemical process in which the substrate is exposed to volatile precursors that react and decompose on the substrate to produce a thin high quality coating. There are several different variations of CVD such as plasma enhanced CVD, low pressure CVD, atmospheric pressure CVD, and high pressure CVD. Out of these, low pressure CVD is the technology segment that holds the maximum share (close to 37%). The technology is used in many different end-user industries such as microelectronics, cutting tools, industrial, energy, medical devices, and healthcare. The demand of this technology is maximum in the electronics segment.
