According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Metal Powder Market is accounted for $4,216.56 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $6,256.89 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. Metal powder is powdered form of various metals such as aluminum, steel, and iron. It is widely used in several applications of various industries. These industries include automotive, healthcare, firearms, and electronics. Metal powders are extensively used for the process of thermal spraying, filling plastics, and fabricating sintered parts among others.

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Rising demand from various end user industries


There is a huge demand from the end user industries such as automotive and healthcare. Increasing sales of automotive components is a positive sign for the growth of the market for metal powder, for instance, the Indian auto component industry witnessed a high growth rate. With a growing focus on lightweight and electric vehicles, the demand for metal powder is expected to spur in near future. The metal powder is largely used in the firearms industry for triggers, rifle bolt, and pistol breech block among others.

Restraint:

High cost requirements


The cost of the metal powder used in the processes is high as compared to other raw materials, which are used in casting and forging. The tooling and equipment costs are quite high, especially when the required production volume is less. A few powders are even difficult to store without some deterioration. This is particularly a limitation when production volumes are small. Large or complex shaped parts are difficult to produce by metal powder process. The relatively high initial investments and high R &D cost are the key restraints for the market growth of metal powder.

Opportunity:

Technological advancements


With rapid technological advancements complementing the use of metal powders in a large number of products, such as rocket fuels, paint pigments, printing inks, and many others, opportunities in the metal powder market continue to multiply at an unprecedented pace. This falls in line with the growing awareness about the role of metal powders as base materials for producing metallic components through the powder metallurgy route or the emerging field of additive manufacturing. Gauging the high adoption momentum and opportunistic value of metal powder, are paving the way for high-purity solutions, thereby, shaping the growth of the metal powder market.

Threat:

Limited use in the production of three-dimensional products


Metal powder has limited use in the production of three-dimensional products, i.e. through-thickness or axial direction. Metal powders are relatively expensive feedstock as compared to other raw materials such as steel bars and billets. Furthermore, the capital cost of metal powder processing equipment is comparatively higher. Hence, it needs to be amortized over a long production run.

The ferrous segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

Most metallic powders are ferrous metallic powders. Metallic elements are generally silvery white, when the metal is under certain conditions, it will present in the form of black powder. Metal powder refers to metal particle group with size less than 1mm. It includes single metal powder, alloy powder and some refractory compound powder with metal property, which are the main raw materials of powder metallurgy. Ferrous segment is likely to have a huge demand owing to increasing utilization of iron and steel powder for bearings and filter parts, magnetic materials, and friction parts in the automobile industry, and high strength and wear-resistant parts.

The atomisation segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

In atomisation, molten metal is separated into small droplets and frozen rapidly before the drops come into contact with each other or with a solid surface. Typically, a thin stream of molten metal is disintegrated by subjecting it to the impact of high-energy jets of gas or liquid. In principle, the technique is applicable to all metals that can be melted and is used commercially for the production of iron, copper, alloy steels, brass, bronze, low-melting-point metals such as aluminum, tin, lead, zinc, and cadmium, and, in selected instances, tungsten, titanium, rhenium, and other high-melting-point materials. Atomisation is quite effective for creating metal powders and can be used on all types of melted metal.

Region with largest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share owing to the growth in the manufacturing segment. The U.S. is the major regional consumer of metal powder, where the growing production of automotive components is anticipated to propel the market growth. Also, the other industries, including lawn and garden, industrial, off-road, and agriculture, are also expected to increase the demand for metal powder products. For instance, Flex-N-Gate opened a facility for producing automotive parts in Detroit for Ford.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR due to the increasing competition, consumer awareness, rising consumer spending, demand for powder metallurgy manufactured components, and technological advancements. The market for Metal Powder in developing countries such as China and India are estimated to grow at a relatively higher rate during the forecast period. China is estimated to grow faster than any other country because of its strong economic growth along with growing demand from end-user industries and rapid urbanization. Developing countries such as China and India are estimated to witness the relatively high growth rate in forecast period for market. China is estimated to grow faster in comparison with any other country because of its rapid urbanization as well as strong & increasing demand from end-user industries.
