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 2016. In aerospace, alloys are used to develop gas turbine engines for defense aircraft, turbine blades, and jet engines.
Key Findings of the Superalloys Market
In 2016, North America dominated the global market, with around two-fifths share, in terms of revenue.
