The automobile industry has witnessed tremendous growth in the last decade, and the growth is expected to continue during the forecast period. The development of low-cost vehicles, extensive service network, and rise in disposable income are driving the automobile industry. Due to the extensive competition in the automobile industry, manufacturing standards are being stringently followed. Moreover, companies are focusing on using products that can extend the final product's life and drive the brand name. Such factors are driving the adoption of diamond like carbon in the automotive industry.
The industry is expected to witness substantial investments during the forecast period due to the changing dynamics in the industry and the growing focus on the construction and adoption of electric vehicles. For instance, Tesla Inc. is considering the construction of a manufacturing unit in India. If approved, the demand for diamond like carbon is expected to rise in the country. Common automotive parts coated with DLC include bearings, valves, gears, cams, and shafts. Further, the rising demand for two-wheelers, primarily in Asia Pacific, is expected to substantially impact the growth of the automotive industry. Such factors are expected to drive the diamond like carbon market during the forecast period.
Based on type, the diamond like carbon market is segmented into pure DLC and mixed DLC. The pure DLC segment accounted for a larger market share in 2020. Pure DLC has properties such as high hardness, high insulation, high wear resistance, low friction coefficient, high chemical stability, high anti-burning properties, and high biocompatibility, which makes it preferable for use in coating applications in automotive and medical industries. The mixed DLC segment is the fastest-growing segment that delivers superior friction behavior, enhanced life cycle, and compatibility with chemicals, owing to the inert nature of DLC coating.

Based on application, the diamond like carbon market is segmented into drill bits and milling cutters, saws and blades, dies and molds, inserts, and others. The growth of the others segment can be attributed to its application in valves, wrist pins, end mills, tappets, pistons, shafts, gears, bearings, and cams or slides. Moreover, the extremely hard coating of the drilling bits and milling cutters helps enhance the tool life and ensures a more controlled wear process, thereby helping the segment's growth. DLC coating is also used in many cutting tools, including razor blades and saw, owing to its high hardness, low friction, and chemical inertness.
Based on end use, the diamond like carbon market is segmented into automotive, medical, packaging, electronics, and others. The automotive segment is anticipated to grow, owing to the increasing usage of DLC coating to reduce fuel consumption of automobile engines by reducing friction and pump components to prevent seizure. The growth of the medical segment can be attributed to its broad scope of application in biomedical, orthopedic, and dental applications, owing to its superior tribological and mechanical properties, including corrosion resistance, hemocompatibility, and biocompatibility.
The key players operating in the diamond like carbon market include IBC Coatings Technologies, LTD.; Oerlikon Groups, Inc.; Richter Precision Inc.; Norseld Pty Ltd; Bunty LLC; Wallwork Heat Treatment Ltd; Micromatter Technologies Inc.; HEF Group; IHI Ionbond Ag; and Dynasil Corporation. The key companies adopt strategies such as mergers and acquisitions and research and development to expand their customer base and gain significant share in the global market, allowing them to maintain their brand name globally.
