Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) Coating with High Biocompatibility and Decreased Cytotoxicity Earns Massive Demand in Medical and Biomedical Industries

The global diamond-like carbon (DLC) market is anticipated to find large players showcasing their command in terms of share. DLC manufacturers could bank on new prospects created as a result of continuous research activities conducted in the medical, electronics, and automotive industries. Most leading players such as Miba AG, Morgan Advanced Materials Plc., and Oerlikon Group are observed to establish their production bases in Austria, Belgium, Germany, and the U.K. Guidelines of Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) are causing the focus of medical device manufacturers to be more inclined toward greener engineering technologies, and DLC coating materials are one of them.

Northeast Coating Technologies’ Kennebunk facility has been provided with another cutting-edge TSD 850 PVD/PACVD machine. It counts as the fifth DLC coating system with large capacity added to the facility with a view to satisfy rising demand for high-quality DLC coatings supplied by the company.

The global DLC market is foreseen in a report by Transparency Market Research (TMR) to expand at a 6.4% CAGR between 2017 and 2025. In 2016, the market achieved a valuation of US$1.3 bn.
