Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from the Automotive Manufacturing Industries

  • The applications of magnesium alloys offer various benefits. They are employed in the engine block and wheels production, which, in turn, supports weight reduction, especially for sports cars.
  • Automotive manufacturers have been using magnesium alloys in production to reduce weight, thereby, increasing the fuel efficiency and performance of automobiles. Magnesium alloys are preferred in engine blocks, as they are resistant to higher temperatures.
  • Many large automotive manufacturers, like Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Jaguar, Fiat, and Kia Motors Corporation, have already replaced steel and aluminum with magnesium alloys in their vehicles.
  • Magnesium alloys possess excellent impact resistance, and they absorb shocks and vibrations while traveling, in turn, providing a subtle and comfortable drive to the consumers. Magnesium alloys are also eco-friendly, as these alloys are recyclable.
Magnesium Alloy Market Volume Share

Asia Pacific is Expected to Dominate the Market Studied

  • Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global market, owing to the highly developed automotive sector in China, coupled with the developing production of aerospace components in recent years.
  • Magnesium alloys have been increasingly used in the electronics industry, owing to the huge electronic production bases in China, Taiwan, and South Korea, for the production of cameras, cell phones, laptops, and portable media devices.
