Powder Metallurgy to Account for 90% Application of Metal Powder over Next Ten Years: Persistence Market Research

Published On : May 12, 2021

Metal powder is used with additive manufacturing to create complex objects such as automotive components, aircraft engine parts, and medical implants. Basically, metal powder is derived by cutting metal into powder form. Metal powder includes iron powder, aluminum powder, and titanium powder, and is used in various industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, medical, and building & construction, besides others.

Globally, the metal powder market is projected to grow at a moderate rate, driven by steady demand from end-use industries across the globe. However, powder metallurgy is anticipated to witness relatively significant growth over the forecast period. Consumption of metal powder in additive manufacturing and metal injection molding (MIM) applications is estimated to be the highest over the coming years.

As per Persistence Market Research analysis, the market is projected to reach a market value of around US$ 20 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of more than 3% over the next ten years.  

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • The market is growing steadily in India and China, owing to robust innovation and growth in the manufacturing of industrial equipment in these countries.
  • Growing need for lightweight metal components is presenting significant opportunities for metal powder manufacturers.
  • Direct Metal Deposition (Ded) with metal powder is anticipated to boost demand in future.
  • Rising demand for metal powder for state-of-the-art technology is being witnessed across regions.
  • By material, iron will hold around 80% of the overall market share.
  • Powder metallurgy dominates the landscape with over 90% market share.
