Superalloys market expected to reach $7,150 million globally by 2022
According to a new report published by Allied Market Research
titled “Superalloys Market: Global Opportunity Analysis and
Industry Forecast, 2014-2022,” the global market was valued
at $3,727 million in 2015 and is estimated to reach $7,150
million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 9. 5 percent from 2016
to 2022. In 2015 nickel-based alloys held more than half the
share of the total market.
Superalloys are those alloyed with nickel, cobalt, and iron
along with other metals to enhance corrosion resistance.
These alloys are widely used in aerospace gas turbine engines,
nuclear reactors, power-generation turbines, petrochemical
equipment, and rocket engines because of their high mechan-
ical strength; creep resistance at high temperature; significant
surface stability; and corrosion, oxidation, and high-tempera-
The growth of the global superalloys market is driven by
the increase in demand for these alloys in industries such as
aerospace, oil and gas, and automotive. The aerospace ap-
plication segment dominated the global market in 2015, with
almost half of the total market share. In aerospace, alloys are
used to develop gas turbine engines for defense aircra;, tur-
bine blades, and jet engines. However, the high cost of these
alloys is anticipated to hamper the mar-
ket growth during the forecast period.
In 2015 North America dominated the
global market with its aerospace industry growth. In terms of value, Asia-Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR
of 10. 1 percent, followed by Europe,
which is expected to register a CAGR of
9. 6 percent.
Braidy Industries to build
autobody sheet, aerospace
plate aluminum rolling mill
Braidy Industries Inc., in partnership
with the state of Kentucky and the Ashland Alliance, will construct the nation’s
first greenfield aluminum rolling mill in
more than three decades.
The $1.3 billion rolling mill will produce autobody sheet aluminum and
plate and ultrahigh-strength alloys for
the aerospace industry. The mill will
open with capacity of 370,000 tons per
year, producing series 5000, 6000, and
7000 aluminum sheet and plate products. The company also is exploring
new scientific nanocrystalline technical
advances capable of improving molten
Ground-breaking at the 370-acre site
will occur in Q1 2018 in Greenup County,
Ky., close to the city of Ashland.
The American Galvanizers Association
(AGA), Centennial, Colo., has announced
the winners of the 2017 Excellence in
Hot-Dip Galvanizing Awards. More than
120 projects were judged online by a
panel of architects and engineers. The
projects are available for viewing in the
AGA Project Gallery at www.galvanizeit.
org/project-gallery. A full list of winners
is available at www.galvanizeit.org/
The Most Distinguished Award was
given to the Horizon Oil Sands Slurry
Preparation Plant (SPP) in Alberta, Canada, for the use of hot-dip galvanized
steel to withstand the plant’s corrosive
The Lifetime Achievement Award,
which recognizes galvanized projects
with at least 15 years of service, was
granted to the Baseball Man. This topiary, designed in 2001, greets visitors at
the Gulfport Sportsplex in Mississippi.
Its hot-dip-galvanized frame is designed
to withstand the internal irrigation system and harsh fertilizers. In 2005, Baseball Man and the Sportsplex were devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Later that
year, vandals set the topiary on fire, but
the frame was unscathed, and the topiary is now restored.
