Soft magnetic materials are used for two types of applications AC and DC. In DC applications the material is charged with a specific end goal to play out an operation and after that demagnetised at the finish of the operation. In AC applications the material will be consistently cycled from being magnetised in one direction to the next, all through the time of operation. One of the major growth driver of soft magnetic materials market is increasing demand originating from the automotive industry. Moreover, use of such materials in electrical applications and utilisation of these in wind turbines for energy generation will also contribute to the market growth. On the other hand, the volatility in price of raw materials used in fabrication process of these materials may restrain the market growth over the forecast period.
Global Soft Magnetic Materials Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.18% over the forecast period to reach US$23.073 billion by 2021. Asia Pacific region will witness fastest growth on account of expansion of various end user industries such as electronics & telecommunications and automotive. Moreover, factors like rapid economic development and industrialization will also propel the demand for these materials over the next six years.
