Metal Powders

As Quoted In Purchasing

US metal powder demand through 2012 will improve from a flat 2002 to 2007 performance. Gains will be supported by new uses for many types of metal powders (e.g., iron and steel, stainless steel, aluminum, tungsten). An improved outlook for electronics -- which use the most expensive metal powders -- will boost total value demand.

This study analyzes the $3.5 billion US metal powders industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by type (e.g., iron and steel, stainless steel, aluminum, zinc, magnesium, copper, tungsten, nickel, cobalt, molybdenum, precious metals, tantalum), application and market (e.g., motor vehicles, machinery, electrical and electronic, chemicals, aerospace).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 industry players, including GKN, Siemens and Höganäs.
