Superalloys Market: With Soaring Demand It is Now a $7,150 Million Industry

Increase in need for high-strength materials that can withstand high temperatures in aircraft engines, gas turbines, rocket engines, and chemical plants is the major driver of the global superalloys market

Portland, OR, April 30, 2017 --( Superalloys Market Report, published by Allied Market Research, states that the Global Market was valued at $3,727 million in 2015, and is estimated to reach $7,150 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2016 to 2022. In 2015, nickel-based segment held more than half share of the total market.

Access Full Summary at:

Superalloys are the group of alloys, which are alloyed particularly with nickel, cobalt, and iron along with other metals to enhance their corrosion resistance. These alloys are widely used in aerospace gas turbine engines, nuclear reactors, power generation turbines, petrochemical equipment, rocket engines, and others owing to their remarkable properties such as high mechanical strength, creep resistance at high temperature, significant surface stability, and corrosion, oxidation, & high-temperature, resistance.

The growth of the global superalloys market is driven by the increase in demand for these alloys in range of industries such as aerospace, oil & gas, automotive, and others. They are widely used in turbine engines, as the thermodynamics efficiency of turbine engines is increased with increasing turbine inlet temperature, which is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunity to the market players. However, high cost of these alloys is anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.

Nickel-based superalloys is the leading base material segment, as these superalloys possess high-temperature mechanical properties and oxidation resistance. These alloys are majorly used in hottest parts of gas turbines turbine blades, turbine discs, metal processing, and casting blades. Presently, these alloys constitute over 50% of the weight of advanced aircraft engines.

The aerospace application segment dominated the global market, with almost half of the total market share in 2015. In aerospace, alloys are used to develop gas turbine engines for defense aircraft, turbine blades, and jet engines.
