The global high performance alloys market is expected to grow substantially in the years to come. The growth is estimated on the basis of an ever-increasing demand for alloys in verticals like thermal processing, oil & gas extraction, and petroleum. The latest demand comes from aerospace industry wherein light materials are required.
The market is segmented by product, material, application, and geography. By product, the segmentation spans platinum group, super alloys, refractory, and non-ferrous metal. By material, the segmentation goes like magnesium, titanium, aluminum, and others. By application, the market comprises aerospace, electrical & electronics, oil & gas, automotive, industrial, industrial gas turbine and others.
By geography, the segmentation consists of North America (Mexico, Canada, and U.S.), Europe (France, Russia, UK, and Germany), Asia Pacific (Japan, India, and China), Central America & LATAM (Argentina and Brazil), and MEA (South Africa).
North America rules the market due to ongoing developments in aluminum and magnesium mining coupled with growing extraction of metals used to produce alloys. Plus, technological advancements with respect to processing techniques of high performance alloys are expected to impact the market on the positive note. Asia pacific is expected to grow at the fastest pace due to growing aerospace industry.
At the same time, the high performance alloy market is subject to initial high cost along with stringent regulations regarding mining and extraction. A trend catching up right now is usage of recycled materials to produce these alloys. Aerospace industry asks for titanium-based alloys; which would bolster the market for titanium in the near future. At present Aluminum is riding high. In terms of products, super alloys dominate the market. Chromium is another material in demand as it provides resistance against corrosion or oxidation.
