“Increase in the construction activities, developments in the transportation industry, and increase in electrical and electronics use are projected to drive the overall growth of the sintered steel market across regions from 2019 to 2024.”
The sintered steel market size is projected to grow from USD 23.6 billion in 2019 to USD 28.3 billion by 2024, recording a CAGR of 3.7% from 2019 to 2024. The global sintered steel industry witnesses a moderate growth mainly due to the increasing construction activities, developments in the transportation industry, and use of electrical and electronics worldwide. The rising population, particularly in developing countries, is another key factor contributing to the increase in construction activities, which in turn, is projected to drive the growth of the market over the next few years.
“In terms of both value and volume, the tool steel segment is projected to record a higher CAGR during the forecast period.”
The tool steel segment of the sintered steel market is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value as well as volume. Their suitability comes from their distinctive hardness, resistance to abrasion and deformation, and their ability to hold a cutting edge at elevated temperatures. Its properties, such as tensile strength, durability, and ease of installation, is further projected to drive the market for tool steel solutions.
“In terms of both value and volume, the electrical segment is projected to dominate the sintered steel market during the forecast period.”
The growth of the electrical segment in the sintered steel industry is attributed mainly to the favorable and increased interest of population for the use of electrical and electronics across all regions. This is projected to drive the sales of more electrical appliances. The electrical segment expenditure is estimated to go up, particularly in the developing countries of the Asia Pacific and Latin America. There is an increasing trend of urbanization observed in these regions, which has resulted in higher growth rate for the usage of more electrical appliances, in comparison to the developed markets which will cater the growing need for sintered steel in the electrical segment.
“In terms of both value and volume, the Asia Pacific sintered steel market is projected to account for a major market share during the forecast period.”
In terms of value, the Asia Pacific region is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period due to the increasing demand from countries such as China, Korea, India, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Increasing demand in these countries is due to the rising growth opportunities in the construction industry. The increasing number of new housing units and considerable investments in the infrastructural sector are factors that are also projected to drive market growth.
