Electroplating Market|Size,Share,Growth|2023-2030

Electroplating Market Size (2023 - 2030)

The global electroplating market was worth USD 14 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 17 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 3.02% from 2023 - 2030. 

Electroplating is a process of plating one metal onto another metal using the hydrolysis technique. The procedure provides properties like desirable, protection, appearance, and special surface properties. The main aim of electroplating is to change the physical properties of the object. Electroplating plays a vital role in the automotive sector. 

COVID-19 Impact on Electroplating Market

The sudden emergence of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has affected millions of human lives and other businesses sectors. Due to the pandemic period, other sectors like electronics and metals have seen a fall, and the industries have seen half of the loss. The pandemic has created a negative effect on the electroplating market globally. The electroplating market has observed a reduction in demand from different industrial applications. Due to nationwide lockdown and transportation bans, economies and industries were shutdowns temporarily, and the global electroplating market has faced a major drawback due to industries and offices were shut down along with breaks in supply chain processes. 


The rising acceptance of electroplating over different industries like aerospace and automotive and defense escalate the market growth. Also, the adoption of plating on plastic boosts the market demand. Factors like increasing concentration of manufacturers in developing waste management procedures to manage dangerous waste being released into the environment. Continuous industrialization propels the electroplating market growth globally. The rising approval of advanced processes like dry processes fuels the electroplating market growth. Moreover, manufacturers are more concentrating on water-based cleaning agents across the organic ones fostering the electroplating market growth globally. The growing demand for consumer goods made of metal, and rapid industrialization stimulate the electroplating market growth. 


  • High Cost

However, factors restraining the electroplating market are the cost associated with the procedure is expensive and the environmental issues. Executing stringent environmental guidelines in countries like North America and Europe using electroplating use concerned with side-effects on human health and environment. The above-mentioned factor diminishes the electroplating market growth. The slowdown of economic growth in countries like North America and Europe is anticipated to limit the electroplating market growth over the timeline period.
