Global Stainless Steel Alloys Market: Introduction
Stainless steel alloy is also known as stainless steel or inox steel. The stainless steel alloy is a metal alloy that contains a minimum 10.5% chromium & maximum 30% chromium and are more resistant to corrosion than normal steels. Stainless steel alloy is a metal which looks bright owing to its high light reflecting properties and exhibits high resistance to stain and oxidation in air at ambient temperatures. Composition of stainless steels alloy can vary from a simple alloy of iron and chromium to complex alloys containing nickel, chromium, and various other elements in small quantities.
Global Stainless Steel Alloys Market: Dynamics
The properties of stainless steel such as corrosion resistance, tensile strength, and aesthetic appearance are expected to propel the market growth from end-use industries namely automotive and transportation and infrastructure & construction. The increasing government regulations towards carbon emissions estimated to create demand for stainless steel in manufacturing of automobiles, white goods and other equipment. As the stainless steel is recyclable, the material is favoured to be used an alloy which is widely used in the construction of bridges, buildings, and other architectural structures. However, oversupply of steel, demand slowdown in manufacturing sector, escalating raw material prices, increasing use of aluminium and carbon fibers as a viable substitute, owing to its advantages such as fuel efficiency, durability, and performance, in automotive component are expected to restraint the demand of stainless steel alloy in the future.
