The non-thermal nature of chemical reactions in plasma chemistry is considered to be suitable for next-generation energy production from plasma-material syntheses and renewable sources. As emerging multidisciplinary applications, plasma medicine and plasma agriculture are currently topical applications that make use of atmospheric pressure plasmas. Here, we conduct a systematic review of the literature over the last 40 years to evaluate the history and progress of dry processes with regard to atmospheric pressure plasma technologies as well as material synthesis and thin-film deposition. In this review, selected breakthroughs are reviewed. Finally, near-future major challenges are addressed to encourage new multidisciplinary research across the plasma science and technology community.
