Metal Powders Market: Key Drivers and Trends

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The increased use of powder metallurgy (PM) technology is notably driving the metal powders market growth, although factors such as environmental issues regarding metal powders may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the metal powders industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

  • One of the key factors driving growth in the metal powders market is the increased use of powder metallurgy (PM) technology.
  • PM refers to the method of manufacturing ferrous and non-ferrous components by mixing alloys of elemental powders and compressing the resultant mixture.
  • One of the major advantages of the PM process is that helps conserve energy by limiting wastage of resources as it uses approximately 98% of the metal to produce metal powders.
  • The process is cost-effective when producing simple or complex metallic parts, leading to minimal or no machining.
  • The increasing demand for metal powders for structural auto parts is another major factor supporting the metal powders market share growth.
  • Structural components made from metal powders possess a combination of corrosion resistance, high electrical and thermal conductivity, good machinability, enhanced fatigue, and mechanical properties, and bring down the overall weight of the components. 
  • Some of the most common applications of metal powders include torque converter hubs, bearing races, and gears.
  • The increasing production of vehicles gives the global metal powders market a lucrative opportunity to capitalize on the market expansion.

This metal powders market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.
