Iron Powder Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Iron Powder Market according to our research experts:

Slowdown in Automobile Industry to Weaken the Iron Powder Market Demand

  • Iron powder is formed from various iron particles. The particle size of iron powder varies from 20-200 micrometer. Iron powder is commercially available in three types reduced iron powder, atomized powder, and electrolyte iron powder. Each type is used in various applications depending on their properties. Electrolyte iron powders, which have purity, stability, and economic advantage, in par with conventional iron salts and chelates are used for food and water fortification.
  • Iron powder also has various industrial and chemical applications. In industrial application they are used for filtration & separation industrial appliances, air purifiers, deodorizers along with in the application such as Welding and soft magnets in electromagnetics, catering both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC). Iron powders also play a role in the recycling of industrial chemicals and are utilized in steel plants and the pharmaceutical industry.
  • However, the major market share of iron powder applications is swept by PM parts (Particle Metallurgy) alone, mostly serving various automobile parts. Iron powder is used as a filler in friction materials application like automotive OEM and aftermarket brake pads and clutches. They are also extensively used in manufacturing of sintered parts, which are common in transmission and engine applications. However, as the world automotive production has slowed down due to demand decline, the demand for iron powder is also expected to be negatively affected.
