Understanding Impact of COVID-19 on Chemical Vapor Deposition Market

Chemical Vapor Deposition Market: Snapshot

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a widely used material processing technology. It is a process employed to produce high-performance and high-purity solid materials. The technique is appropriate for the manufacture of powders, coatings, monolithic components, and fibers. This technique is often utilized in thin film applications. CVD is used to obtain wear-resistant coatings, corrosion-resistant coatings, and heat-resistant coatings. It is also used for the production of high-purity powder and fabricating ceramic and metal matrix composite materials.
