Plating on plastics (POP) refers to the procedure of electroplating non-conductive plastic surfaces with different metals to make them electrically conductive. The commonly plated metals include chrome, cobalt phosphorus, nickel, copper, silver, and gold. These materials exhibit versatility, easy machinability, and strong surface finishes. POP employs two methods, namely autocatalytic and electroless plating effects. It involves molding, pre-plating, cleaning, etching, conditioning, neutralizing, activating, and bath immersion of metal ions. POP is primarily utilized across the automotive, plumbing, and electronics industries to provide corrosion and wear protection and improve the aesthetic value of a product.

Market Trends:

The escalating demand for lightweight and high-performance materials across the automotive sector to manufacture interior trims, windows, and mirror housings are mainly driving the global POP market growth. Apart from this, manufacturers are adopting environment-friendly POP processes, like multi-molded and two-shot parts methods to comply with the stringent regulatory framework and offer optimum workplace safety, which is fueling the market growth. Additionally, rapid technological advancements, such as the employment of double-layer nickel and micro discontinuous chromium systems, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
