Sputtering Targets Market: Notable Developments & Geographical Outlook

Sputtering Targets are materials which are used for vapor deposition technique to get thin film on the substrate material. Substrate materials are objects to be get coated and they can be anything such as solar cells, semiconductor wafers, and optical components.

Whereas thin film formed on the substrate material improves mechanical properties of it and this achieved mechanical properties depends on used targeted material. To achieve desirable properties on the substrate material, sputtering targets should be manufactured with very well predefined condition and Ideal fabrication method.

Sputtering technique is carried out in enclosed vacuum chamber with filled plasma gas, cathode, and anode. Whereas cathode is used for producing plasma gas and also act as target material.

On the other hand this target material is bring into play for getting coating on substrate. When gas atoms become positive charged ions then they get adhered on the targeted material with high speed results in generation of vapor stream which forms a thin film on substrate material.

For getting uniformed thickness on substrate material it is very necessary that prior to the starting substrate material should be very clean. Apart from getting uniform thickness over the substrate material sputtering targets are used for getting high adhesive strength and improved mechanical properties.

Furthermore, alternatives for using sputtering targets like Thermal evaporation, EMI shielding process, and Laser cladding processes may prove to be a restraint on the growth of global sputtering targets market.

With manufacturing sector productivity rate and sales being hit by covid-19 pandemic, the sputtering targets market growth will also be retarded to a substantial extent in the current year.

The recovery is expected to be witnessed post 4 to 6 financial quarters from the current year depending on the threshold of resumption in full scale production and investments in capital by the end use industries.

Regional Outlook

South East Asia is identified to be a major regional market consisting of electronic hubs in Mainland China, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea. India is being touted as an emerging market in the subsequent years. Apart from the region, Europe also holds a significant share with countries Western Europe contributing to the same. North America is projected to be a market of decent growth along with South East Asia and Europe.

Sputtering technique which is used for vapor deposition is less costly as compared to other methods such as electroplating, galvanizing, and thermal spraying. This key factor supports for expecting growth of sputtering targets global market in forecast period.

With sputtering process being environment friendly process end use industries i.e. microelectronics and photovoltaics have shown inclination to use this process as much as possible which proportionally might take a peak growth in sputtering targets markets.

Demand from automotive electronics, consumer electronics and solar panels in turn will benefit the growth of sputtering targets manufacturers for their end customers involved in fabrication of components related to the end use industries.

Conversely, the issues related to thin film deposition on substrate material as well as soaring coatings because of high residual stress for complex shape has limited use of sputtering targets.
