Plating on plastics relates to electroplating plastic surface using metals such as electro-less nickel, nickel, chrome, copper, gold, silver cobalt phosphorous, and others. This electroplating process offers various functional and decorative benefits to a finished product. It provides an attractive surface quality along with some additional benefits such as toughness, flexibility, and lightweight to the substrate. Plating process also involves silver and gold plating which enhances aesthetic appearance of a finished product or material. Metal coating process increases resistance against a specific set of chemicals that are utilized during manufacturing process.
POP industry has observed various advancements and development in electroplating technology, which has improved overall quality of finished product. To improve corrosion resistance capability, double layer nickel process including a semi-bright coating with bright nickel top layer coating has been developed. In addition, another significant advancement is a development of micro discontinuous chromium system, it improves chromium during metallization process and corrosion resistance of bonds of the nickel.
Rising demand for high-performance and lightweight substitutes for metal in automotive industry is one of major factors driving growth of the global plating on plastics market. Growing consumer awareness regarding performance and environmental benefits of lightweight vehicles has led to increased use of various metal-plastic polymers and plastics in automotive industry, which are expected to drive growth of the global plating on plastics market in next five years.
However, stringent government regulations is a major factor projected to restraint growth of the global plating on plastics market. The Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) have banned use of hexavalent chromium in the POP industry. In addition, stringent regulations set by OSHA and EPA are projected to hamper growth in the near future.
Europe market is estimated to account for major share in terms of revenue in the global plating on plastics market, owing to its growing demand form automotive industry in Germany and the UK. Adoption rate of plating on plastics is estimated to grow at fastest rate in Asia Pacific market. Demand for plating on plastics is expected to increase due to increasing adoption of POP from electronics and automotive manufacturing industries in Japan, China, and India in next ten years.
