Overview of the non-ferrous metals market
Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted the global non-ferrous metals market to witness steady growth and will post a CAGR of close to 5% over the forecast period. The increasing demand for galvanized steel is one the key factors driving the growth of this market globally. Galvanization is the process of immersing steel in molten zinc to create a corrosion-resistant coating of zinc-steel. Galvanization also provides resistance against physical damage. The global demand for galvanized steel is increasing significantly owing to its benefits in industrial applications, which will, in turn, translate into the increasing demand for zinc in the overall market.
One of the emerging trends spurring the growth prospects of this market is the extensive applications of titanium. Titanium is used in anodic spark deposition, a technology that has the potential for expanding titanium’s suitability for automotive, biomechanical, marine, and industrial applications. Furthermore, it is also used in the manufacture of titanium exhausts. Moreover, commercially pure titanium is becoming the standard material of construction in many services owing to its corrosion-resistant properties. The increasing adoption of pure titanium for the manufacture of heat exchanger, dimensionally stable anodes for chlorine and chlorate production, and bleaching equipment in pulp and paper industry will propel this market’s growth prospects over the coming four years.
Product segmentation and analysis of the non-ferrous metals market
During 2015, copper was one of the fastest growing segments in the global non-ferrous metals market. Copper has extensive applications in different end-user segments and sectors including electrical and electronics, construction, transportation, and consumer durables. Copper’s unique property to restrict bacterial growth on its surface makes it useful in air conditioning systems and in the healthcare sector.
Geographical segmentation and analysis of the non-ferrous metals market
In terms of geography, the APAC region led the global non-ferrous metals market and is expected to reach 107 million metric tons by 2020.
