A metal-coated fiber is a fiber with a metal coating over it.Metals used for coating include aluminum, copper, nickel, silver, and gold.
The metal coating layer provides high mechanical strength and improves electric and thermal conductivity. It also eliminates outgassing and increases the temperature range of the fiber.
Metal-coated Fibers can be used for various applications, wherein protection from electromagnetic interference, radio frequency interference, and electrostatic discharge is required.
A variety of metals with melting points of 1400°C or less have been developed as coating materials to endow fibers with unique properties. The most frequently used coating materials are aluminum, copper, nickel, silver, gold, and others.
In terms of material, copper is the dominant segment of the Metal-coated Fibers market. Copper-coated fibers are known for better EMI shielding and electric conductivity at higher temperatures.
Metal-coated Fibers embedded optical sensors are used for distributed temperature sensing (DTS) for down-hole oil and gas operations.Metal-coated Fibers can be sterilized using ETO, steam, e-beam, or g-radiation when employed in medical applications such as laser ablation of the prostate, to shrink enlarged prostate glands, and photodynamic therapy destruction of tumors.
Metal-coated Fibers are used in high-temperature alarm systems to ensure they remain functional in Emergency conditions e.g. in case of fire.
Need for hi-tech sensing devices in the medical, defense, and aerospace industries and rise in interest by major material research organizations for developing high-strength smart composites embedded with Metal-coated Fibers are likely to boost the global Metal-coated Fibers market. However, degradation of metal-coated optical long fibers in harsh environments such as high temperatures is one of the key factors expected to hamper the Metal-coated Fibers market during the forecast period.
In terms of material, the copper segment held a major market share, followed by nickel and aluminum.This is because cooper offers high resistance to temperature and high conductivity and shielding capabilities.
In terms of fiber, multimode fibers is projected to be a highly attractive segment of the global Metal-coated Fibers market during the forecast period.In terms of coating method, freezing is the basic method followed by many manufacturers.
In terms of end-use, the oil & gas accounted for a major share of the global Metal-coated Fibers market in 2017.
