Scratch testers are electronic instruments that are capable of measuring the bond strength, scratch resistance, adhesion, and critical load for a large number of surfaces. These help in determining the scratch resistance of a moving or sliding surface in the relative motion to a stylus.

These testers are extensively used for various types of industrial coatings, especially plasma layers present in the optical and semiconductor technologies. These are also used for decorative coatings that are present in consumer goods and automotive.

The ability of these testers to assess the bond strength of coating interface, product development, and quality control of surface engineered products is expected to bode well for the scratch tester market growth.

The high demand for multiple digital devices, such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones worldwide is another vital factor that is likely to augment the growth in this market. The ongoing technological advancement in the field of the consumer electronics sector is also estimated to aid the growth.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Scratch Tester Market Growth?

The increasing demand for high-quality and durable products is likely to augment the scratch tester market size in the near future. The rising usage of refinish coatings for the purpose of automotive aftermarket painting, repair, and maintenance is expected to bode well for the global market. These coatings help in resisting corrosion, protecting the surface, and changing the visual appearance of automotive.

The rising awareness among people regarding the protection of vehicle paints by restoring damages and scratches on automotive surfaces is another factor that is set to contribute to the growth. The high demand for industrial coatings in the packaging sector is also estimated to augur well for the market.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Scratch Tester Industry?

Health and environmental hazards associated with Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) may hamper the sales of coatings, thereby affecting the demand for scratch testers negatively in the future years. Numerous safety and environmental norms by agencies, such as the California Air Resource Board (CARB), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are set to be implemented worldwide to prevent the formation of ozone.

Why is Asia Pacific emerging as an Opportunistic Scratch Tester Market?

The entry of a large number of consumer electronics companies and the vast presence of manufacturing industries in Japan, China, and India are expected to drive the Asia Pacific scratch tester market share in the evaluation period. The rising investment of automotive companies, including Tesla and Apple, as well as foreign manufacturers in developing countries is another crucial factor that is likely to boost the growth.

According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India was the fifth-largest automotive industry with US$ 3.49 million units sold in the commercial and passenger vehicles categories. Between FY16-20, domestic automobile production surged at 2.36% CAGR in the country. This trend is set to continue throughout the forthcoming years, thereby bolstering the Asia Pacific market.

How is North America Contributing to Growth of the Scratch Tester Market?

North America is estimated to remain in the second position owing to the increasing focus of key companies on research and development activities, as well as commercialization of their in-house products. The surging sales of scratch testers in the U.S. and Canada backed by their usage in the measurement of adhesion of coatings, glasses, metals, and paints is another factor that is expected to drive the market.

Besides, the rapid expansion of the automotive and electronics sectors across North America is set to play a significant role in the growth. The work-from-home trend in the U.S. has propelled the demand for peripherals and computing devices with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic back in December 2019. This trend is anticipated to continue throughout the forthcoming years, which may influence the regional market positively.
