Titanium Alloy Market Overview
The global titanium alloy market size was worth US$ XX billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Titanium alloys are materials made up of titanium and other chemical elements. The tensile strength and toughness of such alloys are extremely high (even at extreme temperatures). Titanium alloys are low in weight, have excellent corrosion resistance and can sustain high temperatures. Pure titanium is stronger than steel, but when it is blended with the correct metals or chemical ingredients, it becomes even stronger. As a result, titanium alloy is widely employed in applications that necessitate a highly durable material.
However, due to the high cost of both raw materials and processing, they are only used in military applications, aircraft, spacecraft, bicycles, medical devices, jewelry and highly stressed components such as connecting rods, inexpensive sports cars, as well as some premium sports equipment and consumer electronics.
Titanium Alloy Market Dynamics
The demand for titanium alloy is anticipated to grow with rising automotive, aerospace and healthcare industries. Titanium alloys have observed huge demand for missiles, airplanes, and rockets due to their low weight, strength and resistance to high temperatures. The rising demand for lightweight vehicles and government support for electric vehicle sales will influence titanium alloy market in the forecast period.
Extensive demand from a wide range of end-user applications
The aerospace industry is the prime end-user responsible for accelerating titanium alloy's market use in jet engines and other related parts. These alloys are used by gas turbine engines and aircraft structures such as landing gear, spacecraft, and helicopter rotors. Emerging markets, particularly China and Russia, are likely to expand their demand for titanium alloys in the forecast period.
Furthermore, titanium and its alloys are utilized in aircraft to reduce weight and fuel consumption. The use of reinforced titanium alloys in aircraft engines and mainframes has significantly reduced aircraft fuel consumption, which is one of the key reasons for the increased demand for titanium and related alloys in the aerospace sector.
In addition, the market for titanium alloys is likely to be boosted by rising demand for SUVs and lightweight vehicles and governments encouraging the manufacturing and sale of electric vehicles through regulations in recent times. It is lighter than other alloys, such as steel, iron etc., which is a major advantage for titanium alloys in substituting automotive components to make lighter vehicles.
Excellent mechanical and physical properties are offered by titanium alloy
Titanium and its alloys have a unique mix of mechanical and physical qualities as well as corrosion resistance, making them ideal for essential aerospace, industrial, chemical, and energy industry applications. Titanium alloys are materials made up of titanium and other chemical elements.
The tensile strength and toughness of such alloys are extremely high (even at extreme temperatures). They are low in weight, have excellent corrosion resistance, and sustain high temperatures, using them in various industries. In flowing, turbulent fluids, titanium alloys are also known for their exceptional resistance to erosion, erosion-corrosion, cavitation, and impingement.
Titanium alloys also have appealing increased temperature qualities for use in hot gas turbine and vehicle engine components, where more creep resistant alloys can be chosen for temperatures up to 600 degrees Celsius. Titanium alloys are chemically resistant to a wide variety of substances, surroundings, and situations created by a thin, inconspicuous, yet very effective oxide sheet that protects the surface.
The high price of titanium and its alloys is expected to hinder the market growth
Titanium utilization in each application is limited since it has a significantly higher cost than aluminum and steel alloys. High energy is required for melting Titanium metal from its ore. Ingot melting is also energy-intensive. Forging titanium alloys is more challenging than forging steel.
All of the processes in the production process are influenced by the metallurgical behavior of the alloys, which puts various constraints and controls on forging operations. In addition, its high reactivity requires melting in an inert atmosphere using a water-cooled copper retort or hearth, depending on the melting technique. Machining is also very high cost, 10-100 times slower than the machining of aluminum.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The global effects of the coronavirus illness in 2019 (COVID-19) are already being felt, and the Titanium Alloy market will be considerably impacted in 2020. COVID-19 had a negative impact on the market in 2020. Several countries have gone into lockdown due to the threat of a pandemic. Due to supply chain interruptions and manpower shortages had a detrimental impact on several end-user industries such as aerospace, automotive, chemical, and others.
Titanium Alloy Market Segment Analysis
By type, the titanium alloy market is classified into alpha titanium, alpha/beta-titanium, and beta titanium.
Increased demand for light-weight aircraft are expected to impact the market for alpha titanium alloys.
Alpha and near-alpha alloys have modest mechanical strength and good fracture toughness and creep resistance. Furthermore, these alloys can withstand temperatures of up to 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit (600 degrees Celsius).
Alpha alloys like Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo+Si, Ti-5Al-2.5Sn, and Ti-8Al-1Mo-1V are used in a variety of applications, including steam turbine blades, gas turbine blades, autoclaves and other process equipment vessels, aircraft engine compressor blades, airframe and jet engine parts, welded stator assemblies, missile fuel tanks, structural parts, and hollow compressor blades.
Aplha titanium can withstand a wider temperature range than alpha-beta alloys. The demand for alpha and near-alpha titanium alloys in the aerospace and defense sector is growing due to the increased manufacturing of new aircraft and defense products and the increased number of people using passenger aircraft as a form of transportation.
Titanium Alloy Geographical Analysis
Asia-Pacific holds the largest market share in Global Titanium Alloy Market
The region accounts for the highest market share due to rapid industrial development in the automotive, aerospace, medical, electrical, & electronics sectors, creating the demand for titanium alloy. China is expected to lead the titanium alloy market in the Asia-Pacific region during the forecast period.
Xinjiang New Material Co. has opened new production facilities. Chaoyang Baisheng Co., Ltd. and Chaoyang Baisheng Co., Ltd. in China is likely to play a significant role in increasing titanium output rates. Hence, the companies are launching various titanium alloys to fulfill the market demand from the region.
For instance, in 2020, Aerospace Hiwing Titanium Industrial Co., Ltd has developed titanium alloy AM powder for the Chinese aerospace industry. The titanium alloy has the composition of Ti-5.5Al-3.5Sn-3Zr-1Mo-0.5Nb-0.7Ta-0.3Si. It also offers a high limit for operating temperatures of up to 550℃.
Moreover, in 2021, The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), India has launched a high-strength beta titanium alloy for manufacturing components for aerospace applications. The ministry's Aeronautical Development Agency has identified over 15 steel components that the beta titanium alloy forgings can replace in the forecast period with a potential of 40% weight savings. The instances are expected to remain the vital factor for the growth of the titanium alloy market in the region.
