Metal Finishing Procurement Intelligence

The metal finishing category is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2023 to 2030.

The process of applying a metal coating to the metallic component’s surface, usually known as a substrate, is referred to as metal finishing. A few major types of metal finishing are abrasive blasting, powder coating, electroplating, passivation, electropolishing, buff polishing, hot blackening, etc. Electroplating, or the process of placing metal ions on a substrate using an electric current, is an integral aspect of metal finishing. Two popular bulk electroplating techniques are barrel plating and rack plating. By end-user industry, automotive and electronics industry applications account for more than 50% – 60% of the total share.

Metal Finishing Procurement Cost and Supplier Intelligence

The metal finishing category is highly fragmented and unorganized. The industry is mostly dominated by numerous small regional/local players spread throughout the country. Hence the bargaining power of suppliers is moderate to low owing to low switching costs for buyers. Heavy metals, cyanide, and volatile organic compounds are among the hazardous air pollutants that can be released during electroplating processes. Hence, metal finishing companies are increasing their investments in upgrading their technology or processes that can reduce the environmental impact as part of their ESG efforts. In many cases, the vendors are using a lot of recycled metal content in their designs. In an effort to widen the customer base, many suppliers, especially in the electroplating industry, are concentrating on offering a combination of metal finishing and other technical premium services.

The major cost components in this category include metal finishing chemicals, processes, machinery and technology, labor, electricity, facilities and utilities, and others. Other costs can include marketing, tax, administrative expenses, insurance, etc. In a custom metal finishing project, labor accounts for the majority of the project’s cost. In general, standard post-production procedures include passivation, painting, powder coating, sanding, cleaning, etc. In the powder coating process, depending on the use case, powder materials can include nylons, polyesters, epoxies, or any other chemistries. Similarly, for corrosion protection, plating metals can include zinc, chromium, nickel, aluminum, etc. In the electroplating sector, nickel continues to remain as the most sought-after metal owing to its properties of wear and corrosion resistance, luster, and brightness.
