Soft Magnetic Materials Market

Global Market Study on Soft Magnetic Materials: Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Sales Creating Opportunity

Significant Adoption by Automotive Industry Pushing Soft Magnetic Materials Market Growth

The automotive industry has been generating remarkable demand for electronic components that aid in delivering enhanced efficiency and high reliability. Components such as inductors that take up a large space inside an automobile have been recently undergoing dimensional reduction, which is brought about by soft magnetic materials.

These materials help in reducing dimensions of electronics components and thereby, promote work efficiency. Exceptional magnetic properties of soft magnetic materials continue to push their application in the automotive industry, as it remains at the forefront in terms of raising demand for technically advanced materials.

This study indicates that the notable increase in sales of hybrid vehicles that combine petrol or diesel engines with an electric motor, would remain a significant booster to soft magnetic materials market growth. These soft magnetic materials catalyze reduction of CO2 emissions and thus, promote low fuel consumption.

Attributing to their abilities to reduce vehicle weight as compared to conventional electric steel, soft magnetic materials are extensively used in motor driven systems. Key advantages such as compact design, energy savings, and low noise will continue to push demand for soft magnetic motors in electric and hybrid vehicles, which in turn would bolster the growth of global soft magnetic materials market in the near future.

Superior Magnetic Attributes over Electric Steel to Impel Soft Magnetic Materials Demand  

Nano crystalline soft magnetic materials and amorphous alloys exhibit high permeability and enhanced saturation flux density. Other unique properties include low core loss, high temperature resistance, low ageing effects, and high frequency characteristics. Demand for high frequency transformers and reactors is increasing in power generation.

Core losses of electrical steel under high frequency range are very high as compared to the soft magnetic materials. This core loss converts into a heat form, which raises the temperature of the immediate area, increasing the demand for soft magnetic materials for use in high temperature environments.
