Metal Powders to 2015 - Demand and Sales Forecasts, Market Share, Market Size, Market Leaders

Metal Powders to 2015 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US metal powder demand will grow 6.2 percent annually to $4.8 billion in 2015, driven primarily by increased output in several key industries. Ferrous metal powders will outpace nonferrous types in volume terms, but nonferrous metal powders will remain dominant in value terms. The fastest growing types include tungsten, nickel and ferrous metal powders.

This study analyzes the $3.4 billion US metal powders industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by type (e.g., iron and steel, stainless steel, zinc, aluminum, magnesium, copper, tungsten, nickel, cobalt), application (e.g., components) and market (e.g., motor vehicles, machinery, batteries and electrical equipment, chemical products).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry players, including GKN, Allegheny Technologies and Höganäs.
