Thermal barrier coatings are highly advanced coatings that are applied on surfaces such as gas turbines, aerospace parts that are exposed to high temperatures. They are used in various industries such as automotive, energy, healthcare, defense, oil and gas. The thickness of the coatings can be varied from 100 micrometers to around 2 millimeters. These coatings allow higher operating temperatures. North America is leading the thermal barrier coating market in terms of market volume followed by Europe. Asia Pacific is also fast adopting this class of coatings due to the growth in building and construction sector.
