Analyst Review

The optical coating equipment provide assistance in the application of thin-film optical coatings over the target materials. The optical coatings enhance the reflective, antireflective, dichroic, and optical glare capabilities of the target materials on which the coating is applied. Currently, out of the available coating equipment type by technology the evaporation deposition holds the largest share of the global market. However, the ion beam sputtering is expected to provide profitable lucrative CAGR growth during the forecast period owing to their lower coat of operations and ability to furnish sophisticated optical coating across different curvatures. In addition, the increase in scope of application for optical coatings across various end users is also anticipated to drive the growth of this market during the forecast period.

Based on region, the North America accounts for a major market share in the global optical coating equipment market in 2016, owing to high demand from aerospace, military, medical, and other end users. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate of 5.65% during the forecast period owing to rise in demand form consumer electronics and automotive industries.

The advancement in fabrication technology drives the demand for optical coating equipment across different end-user industries. As a result, the solar, aerospace, consumer electronics and military industries are expected to provide profitable business opportunities for equipment manufacturers.
