Rising Demand For Infrastructure Development To Boost The Growth Of Electroplating Market

Market Overview:

Electroplating is the process of applying a metallic coating to a piece of hardware by electrolysis. It can be used to deposit one metal over another, for corrosion protection, wear resistance, and enhanced aesthetics. Some common metals used in electroplating include silver, chromium, nickel, copper, cadmium and gold. Electroplating has applications across various industries such as construction, automotive, healthcare, electrical and electronics. It offers benefits such as increased product life, anti-tarnish and anti-corrosion properties, decorative appeal and hardening of metal surfaces.

Market key trends:


One of the key trends in the electroplating market is rising demand from the infrastructure industry. Rapid urbanization and industrialization has created an upsurge in infrastructure development activities globally. Electroplating finds extensive usage in corrosion protection of steel structures, pipes and metal fixtures used in buildings, bridges, rail roads, power grids etc. Furthermore, growth in end use industries such as automotive, aerospace and electronics is also driving the need for surface finishing techniques like electroplating. Rising environmental concerns regarding toxic metals have led manufactures to develop alternative materials and processes to make electroplating more sustainable. Advancements in nanotechnology are enabling fabricating of multilayer thin film coatings using electroplating.
