Titanium Sponge Market Segmented By product type such as Ti <99.7 – Ti > 99.5, Ti>99.7
Titanium sponge is a brittle, porous form of titanium element. Titanium sponge is produced during Kroll process of raw titanium ore, where titanium tetrachloride is reacts with sodium or magnesium at high temperature. Once the titanium sponge is formed, it is purified to transform into ingots.
Depending on the application of the process, different purities of titanium sponge can be obtained. The resulting impurities in the sponge usually include iron, silicon, nitrogen, chloride, magnesium, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Titanium sponge serves various end-use industries such as chemical, aircraft, oil and gas, and consumer goods.
Aerospace and industrial equipment are the prominent end-use industries which are primarily driving the titanium sponge market across the globe. Titanium sponge is widely consumed in the production of aircraft frames and engines which creates a positive impact on the titanium sponge market.
For instance, in the aerospace industry, titanium sponge is used in Boeing’s 787 and Airbus’ A350. Furthermore, increasing air-traffic and expanding fleet size is also considered to be one of the key factors boosting the demand for the titanium sponge.
Moreover, the development of several innovative aircrafts is expected to increase in the upcoming years owing to which the demand for titanium sponge is estimated to increase from the aircraft industry. Additionally, increasing dentistry related problems such as loss of chewing functionality among the geriatric population is considered to be another factor influencing the market demand for titanium sponge.
Titanium is used in the formulation of the root form implants that are placed in the jaw bone and other teeth areas, to impart chewing functions by replacing the missing tooth or teeth in the human mouth. Titanium sponge is used in the production of fabric softener soap and detergents. Consequently, the increasing demand for laundry products such as detergents and soaps is positively impacting titanium sponge market.
Titanium sponge is also consumed in the water purification process. The increasing environmental awareness and rising demand for pure water are estimated to drive the growth of the titanium sponge market. Other end-use industries such as pulp and paper, specialty chemical, oil and gas, marine, electronic devices and consumer goods are also augmenting the demand for titanium sponge due to its widespread application.
However, use of the other titanium base alloys as an alternative due to high corrosion resistance, and other mechanical properties as compared to titanium sponge may hinder the market growth of titanium sponge.
The global Titanium Sponge market is considered to be fragmented due to the high presence of domestic as well as international players which have established their presence in particular or multi-regional markets. Additionally, organic growth strategies such as the expansion of other enterprises in new areas are being followed by the market players to sustain their footprint.
