According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Soft Magnetic Materials Market is accounted for $62.03 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $127.18 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period. Soft magnetic material is popularly used in the motor application as it enhances the field produced by motor winding.  Besides, generally iron-based materials are used in motor application that include iron-silicon and iron-cobalt alloys. Soft magnetic materials reduce eddy current loss that leads to increase in the efficiency of the motors.



Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Development in Soft Magnetic Material


An advanced soft magnetic material has been developed for ac and dc motor applications. In association with the conventional method of stacking punched laminations, the engine components are made of a powder metallurgical process. This new material has many production returns. It also has strong high-frequency magnetic properties, a core loss of 90 W / kg when calculated at 400 Hz, and induction of 1,5 Towing to its low eddy current loss. Components made from this new magnetic material have shown comparable performance at 60 Hz and superior performance at frequencies > 60 Hz compared to cold-rolled motor lamination steels. When sintered, the fresh-pressed material still has outstanding dc properties.

Restraint:

Variations In Raw Material Prices 


The prices of iron ore saw a substantial decline due to the seasonal decline in demand and the recovery of supply by iron ore majors. Since then, prices have fluctuated, the prices of iron ore were volatile within the same range, but there was no significant fall as seen in the prices of other metals and minerals. The unexpected fluctuations in raw material prices are destabilizing the supply chain and posing a challenge for manufacturers to deliver quality products at a low price along with earning profits.

Opportunity:

Growing Demand From Developing Economies


Increasing demand for it from developing nations such as China, India, and Malaysia, is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the growth of this market. The increasing number of industries and the growing need for electricity and electronic devices are driving the market growth. Due to the growing global population, rapid infrastructural developments, and increasing manufacturing activities, the demand for soft magnetic materials in the energy and power industry is escalating around the world. Apart from this, there is a considerable increase in the application of these materials in the automotive industry across the globe.

Threat:

Decrease the Eddy Current Loss


Any change in the environment of a coil of wire will cause a voltage to be induced in the coil, regardless of how the magnetic change is produced. The reduction in the eddy current loss is one of the threats for the market growth.

Electrical and Electronics segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

Soft magnetic materials are used for two types of AC and DC applications. In DC applications, the material is charged with a particular final purpose to conduct the operation and then demagnetized at the end of the operation. In AC applications, the material will be constantly cycled from being magnetized in one direction to the next, over the time of operation. The use of such materials in electrical applications and the use of such materials in energy generation wind turbines will also contribute to the growth of the industry.

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

Due to the growing demand for motors in the electrical and automotive business. It is often used in motor applications are iron-based materials, which include iron-silicon and iron-cobalt. The motors are typically made from silicon steels. Metal amorphous nanocomposite materials (MANCs) offer an alternative to silicone steels which, due to their high resistance, do not heat up as much and can thus rotate at much higher speeds. According to the University of Chicago figures, 50 percent of U.S. power goes into the generator. Vehicles like cars and planes rely on power-transforming engines, as do household appliances like vacuums and refrigerators. Since this room is so big, more powerful motors may make a major difference in energy consumption.

Region with highest share:

The Asia Pacific is projected to hold the highest market share, owing to the vast power generation sector in China, in addition to the continuous investments done in the province to advance the electronics and automotive sector through the years. Moreover, the growing government regulations on automobiles in the Asia-Pacific region have been augmenting the adoption of electric vehicles. This, in turn, has fuelled the usage of soft magnetic materials in electric motors in the region. Increasing demand for applications of the market in automobiles for applications such as sensors, driving motors, electric brakes, actuators, gear shifts, etc. Also, materials are used in easily magnetized and demagnetized devices in scrap industries the growing need for electricity transmission from generators and increasing industrialization in the Asia-Pacific province is expected to drive the market.

Region with highest CAGR:

Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR, due to the technological developments in the field of soft magnetic materials. The European area is the epicenter for major automotive manufacturing firms. The region has experienced rising R&D investment in the production of high energy-efficient vehicles. Such efforts are expected to fuel demand for the soft magnetic materials market in the province.
