Global Metal Powders for Additive Manufacturing Market

Benefits of Superior Physical Properties of End Products Stoke Demand for Advanced Metal Powder

The market for metal powders for additive manufacturing is primarily driven by the growing demand from end-use industries such as aerospace and automotive. Manufacturers of metal powders are striving to partner with original equipment manufacturers of end-use industries such as aerospace and automotive. This is to improve the quality, consistency, and overall performance of powders.

Rising demand for advanced materials due to their superior physical properties is also positively impacting this market. For instance, titanium is preferred for metal powder as titanium-based products display error resistance, high tensile strength, corrosion resistance, and lower adhesion to foreign materials. Due to this, titanium metal powders are preferred in a number of end-use industries such as aerospace, medical, and nuclear.
