Sintering Market Analysis, Segments, Growth and Value Chain 2016-2024

Press Release   •   Aug 02, 2017 12:06 EDT

Europe Sintering Market: Snapshot

Sintering is a manufacturing process in which metal alloys in powdered form are molded into unique and complex shapes by subjecting them to high temperatures just below the melting points of the metal alloys being used in the process. The process of sintering is being preferred over the traditional methods of manufacturing components, since sintered parts have superior qualities such as corrosion and abrasion resistance, light weight, etc. Sintering is an important stage in powder metallurgy and is followed by various stages in order to obtain an end product.

The raw materials usually used for the process of sintering are metal powders of low grade alloy steels such as pure iron, Fe – Ni alloys, Fe – Si alloys, Fe – Co Alloys, 42CrMo4 steel, and 100Cr6 steel. Sintering is used on a large scale to manufacture complex components to be used in end use industries such as automotive, defense, and aerospace. Among the above stated low grade alloy steels, pure iron was used widely in sintering process in Europe in 2015 and is expected to be utilized at the same rate in the years to come.

The Europe sintering market is projected to reach US$11.09 bn by the end of 2024, from its valuation of US$8.35 bn in 2015. Considering this, the sintering market in Europe will exhibit a CAGR of 3.2% between 2016 and 2024.

Pyre Iron Sintering Material to Continue Witnessing High Demand through Forecast Period

By material, pure iron, Fe – Ni alloys, Fe – Si alloys, Fe – Co Alloys, 42CrMo4 steel, and 100Cr6 steel are the key market segments. Of these, pure iron material constituted the leading market share of 35.7% in 2015. The segment is expected to remain dominant through the course of the forecast period. Pure iron boasts wide industrial applications, especially with various materials to form base of alloy mixtures. Pure iron offers superior properties such as high corrosion resistance. It is therefore increasingly used across industries as a material for sintering.

Besides this, the demand for Fe—Ni alloys and Fe—Si alloys is forecast to increase during the forecast period. Their demand will spur on account of their superior characteristics such as higher permeability and high electric resistivity. Among the alloy steel considered low grade, the market for 100Cr6 steel may witness steep decline in its market share due to less application in industries.
