COVID-19 Impact on APAC Vacuum Coating Equipment Industry
The advent of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 led to significant problems in the global supply chain, impacting regional manufacturers as well. Lockdown restrictions halted the production activities in the automotive, semiconductor and consumer goods sectors, slowing down vacuum coating equipment demand to some extent. After the COVID-19 pandemic exposed the gaps in the global supply chain, companies have been working on building a more resilient network of manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors, which could bode well for market.
Asia Pacific Market, By Product
The automotive sector is a prominent end-user of PVD vacuum coating equipment in Asia Pacific. More automakers are adopting plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) in their product lines as they are easy-to-clean, heat resistant, cost effective, and aesthetically appealing. They have been seeking advanced solutions for producing superior-quality anti-glare vacuum coating solutions for rearview mirrors of their latest car models.
Asia Pacific Market, By Country
Australia vacuum coating equipment market will gain remarkable momentum during the forecast timeline, prompted by the rising inclusion of thin-film devices using vacuum-deposited technologies in solar panels. Recently, researchers from Australian National University, in collaboration with University of New South Wales and Flinders University, revealed the results of a study. They found that the overall performance of perovskite films can be improved using guanidinium salts, which will accelerate the commercialization of the technology. Since perovskite solar cells have gained considerable attention over the last few years, this development is likely to push the market share from CVD segment. Regional organizations, including Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), have been supporting the development of next-generation solar cell technologies.
With carbon neutrality goals becoming more ambitious, governments in APAC are introducing favorable policies encouraging solar panel installation. Since residential construction activities are gaining momentum across Thailand and Indonesia, increased dependence on renewables will drive product use. Q3 2021 saw the commencement of several multi-family housing projects in Thailand. Several households in APAC have been embracing solar energy, thereby boosting vacuum coating equipment applications.
India vacuum coating equipment industry will cross USD 1,300 million revenue by 2028. Industry participants will gain significant demand from potential semiconductor manufacturers in India.
