And with the rapidly growing demand for sustainable products to reduce the metal industry environmental impact has increased the use of metal powder, driving growth in the metal powder market as a result.

Global Metal Powder Market Overview:

Metal Powder is the powder form of various metals such as iron, aluminum, copper, zinc, etc. which is used for multiple purposes in the industries. Metal powder has several advantages and benefits which is expected to increase the market growth of metal powder. Applications of metal powder such as in additive manufacturing, thermal surface finishing, architectural and painting, printing and screen printing, manufacturing of automotive parts, metal injection molding, as well as metal fillers are likely to drive the global growth of metal powder markets.

The growth is due to rising demand from component manufacturing due to benefits such as reduced production time, cost efficiency, high volume capacity, less waste, and recyclability. Compared to casting, extrusion, forging, and machining, metal powder provides maximum utilization of the raw material and requires less material and energy.

Growth drivers

Increasing demand from different industries

Metal powders are used in various industries such as automobile, health, construction, chemical, aerospace, etc. Applications of metal powder are quite large. Also, metal powder use results in a variety of products, including dental restorations, oil-less bearings, automobile transmission gears, armor-piercing bullets, electrical contacts, nuclear fuel components, orthopedic implants, business machine parts, high-temperature filters, aircraft brake pads, etc. For products such as paint pigments, rocket fuels, explosives, catalysts, printing inks, and many others, metal powders are also used.

Advancement in metal powder technology

Advancement in technology never stops.  It is always reinventing itself with new materials, methods, and products contributing to future developments. Metal powder producers, equipment manufacturers, and process firms are all investing in new technologies for business expansion. To extend materials life, improve surface finish, and enhanced lubrication method different metal powders are developed. These factors will lead to the market growth of metal powder.


High Cost

Metal Powder is highly expensive as costly metals are used to form powder for different applications. As advanced techniques and machinery are used to produce metal powder, a broad range of manufacturing technologies such as pressing and sintering, hot isostatic pressing, powder forging, aided sintering by electric current, selective laser fusion, and metal injection molding are also used. Due to these factors metal powder price is high.

Global Metal Powder Market: By Type

Based on Type, the Metal Powder market is segmented into the Ferrous, Non-ferrous, and others. Ferrous type metal is expected to dominate in the forecast period because of increased use of steel and iron powder for filter parts, magnetic materials, and friction parts in the automobile industry. Metal powder is also used to prevent wear-resistant and to provide high strength to automotive parts.

Global Metal Powder Market: By Application

Based on application, the metal powder market is divided into Automotive, Construction, Electrical & Electronics, Industrial, and Others. The automotive sector is estimated to dominate the metal powder market due to its superior performance and large application in the automotive industry. The powder form of metal is considered more energy-efficient compared to conventional form, for casting, forging, and stamping. Metal powder is expected to boost automotive component as it is used in carbon brushes, brakes, clutches, engine bearings, and filters. Automotive is a huge industry and increasing vehicle demand is expected to propel the demand for metal powder.
