PVD systems sell for around $500,000 new. You might be able to find some used systems for under $300,000. You can also pick up Russian or Chinese equipment at very reasonable prices.

Dipen,

PVD is not just one technology but there are several of them within PVD. Even plasma-spray could be considered PVD (physical vapor deposition). Two major categories of classical PVD are evaporation and sputtering, both in vacuum. How the atoms and molecules are separated from their source, e.g. a target, and what you do to them is where technologies differ. Then they become Ion Plating, Cathodic Arc, DC or RF Magnetron sputtering, ion-beam, etc.

Depending on equipment size, throughput and technology complexity, the prices vary from $5000 to several million.
