This market research report identifies Siemens, Sumitomo Electric Industries, and Columbus Superconductors as the key vendors in the global superconducting magnets market. This report also presents a detailed analysis of the market by application (medical devices and equipment, mass spectrometers, transportation, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global superconducting magnets market

Technavio’s market research report predicts that the global superconducting magnets market will grow steadily during the next four years and post an impressive revenue of almost USD 4 billon by 2021. Th trend of energizing the large-scale wind power with compact superconductor-based generators will be one of the primary drivers for market growth. The development of taller and more powerful wind turbines offer a larger return on investments (ROI). For instance, a 10% raise in tower height leads to a 33% growth in available energy. Off-shore wind turbines offer better potential when it comes to electricity generation. Therefore, the need for excessive moorings and support structures has risen. The only substitute to wind turbines that generate a power of 10MW and higher are the superconducting generators since these generators offer improved results compared to heavy conventional solutions. This will in turn, fuel the grwoth of the market superconducting magnets market.

The rising significance of superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) systems is one of the latest trends that will drive the growth of the market in the future. The market for SMES systems is predicted to intensify due to the rising adoption of distributed utilities. Public and private organizations are funding SMES research projects and numerous universities and labs are concentrating on the development of enhanced devices based on this technology. Vendors are investing in the development of improved SMES systems with larger power storage capacities to keep up with the boosting demand for large-scale energy storage applications.

Competitive analysis and key vendors

The vendors in the superconducting magnets market are expected to provide an extensive range of products with the high-performance properties of HTS superconductors. Moreover, superconducting magnets are also utilized for research and experimentation purposes, which is also anticipated to become one of the revenue generating sectors for the vendors operating in the market. Also, the entry of new players in the market is likely to change the market’s competitive environment that is characterized by constant technological changes and new applications.

Key vendors in the market are:

  • Siemens
  • Sumitomo Electric Industries
  • Columbus Superconductors

Other prominent vendors include Agilent Technologies, American Magnetics, and Bruker.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the superconducting magnets market

  • Medical devices and equipment
  • Mass spectrometers
  • Transportation

During 2016, the medical devices and equipment segment dominated the superconducting magnet market and is expected to continue its dominance over the next four years. The increased utilization of the medical devices such as MRI scanner, positron emission tomography (PET) scanner, and functional imaging due to their benefits will be a major factor driving the segment’s growth in this global market.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the superconducting magnets market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

In terms of geography, APAC dominated the superconducting magnets market during 2016 and is foreseen to continue the domination during the forecast period. The increasing demand for freight transport, fluctuation in fuel costs, and the rising congestions on roadways will induce freight operators in the region to prefer electric locomotives, which in turn, will drive the growth of the market.
