Global Electrolytic Etching Machine Market Introduction
Electrolytic Etching Machine works by the use of electric current instead of chemicals or acids. Electrolytic etching machine can be used for marking a wide variety of ferrous and non-ferrous based materials. Major application includes marking of graphics/logos, serial numbers, time and dates, trademarks amongst others. A number of products such as cutlery, bath ware, sanitary ware, gears, and automotive components, and bearings, surgical and other medical instruments are marked using electrolytic etching machine. The electrolytic machine used in the current scenario is integrated with data matrix, algorithms and software and it doesn’t deform or damage the component to be marked. Therefore electrolytic etching machine is being used for marking small pipes, shims and feeler gauges. The major advantage of electrolytic etching machine is that is it doesn’t produce any toxic fumes (fumes generated are oxygen and hydrogen) as produced when the marking is done through chemical means. The electrolyte used is environmentally safe and the solution is reusable. A wide variety of materials including copper, silver, brass, and steel, gold can be etched efficiently using electrolytic etching machine.

Global Electrolytic Etching Machine Market Dynamics
Global Electrolytic Etching Machine Market Drivers
The major driver for the growth of electrolytic etching machine market are increasing demand from major end use industries such as automotive and construction. With the stringent regulations for the labeling and etching of components, there has been a rise in demand for electrolytic etching machine.
Electrolytic etching machine is regarded as an environmental friendly method as compared to the chemical methods as it produces no deposit on the plate or surface being etched. The process doesn’t have any disposal problems associated with it and etching with electrolytic etching machine is repeatable process. With the help of electrolytic etching machine, permanent marking can be done quite economically. The cost of the process is much lower than electrochemical etching. Electrolytic etching machine is proved to be an efficient means for marking precious and non-precious materials efficiently.
Global Electrolytic Etching Machine Market Restraints
The global Electrolytic Etching Machine market has faced a couple of challenges over the past years. The electrolytic etching machine cannot be used for marking fragile items and therefore laser marking has gain its prominence for some of the applications.
