Industry: Materials | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global shape memory alloys market size is expected to reach USD 26.0 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 12.8%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Shape memory alloy (SMA) refers to a metallic material that can be bent or stretched in its cool state. The alloy regains its original shape when heated above the transition temperature. Low temperature (martensite) and high temperature (austenite) are two stable phases of SMAs.

Gradual expansion of the automotive industry is likely to play a significant role in the demand for shape memory alloy products over the forecast period. Shape memory alloy (SMA) actuators are gaining popularity among automobile manufacturers owing to properties such as shape memory effect (SME) and super elasticity (SE). In addition, SMA actuators do not need complex and bulky design to function. Currently, there are very few applications of shape memory alloys in the automotive industry. However, increasing R&D investments by automobile manufacturers to find potential applications such as climate control, door locks, engine control valve, and actuators will drive the market.

Aerospace and defense is another promising sector for shape memory alloy products. Rising focus on multi-functionality and reliability is driving demand for advanced materials such as SMAs in aerospace applications. Such industrial applications include spacecraft, rotorcraft, and fixed-wing aircraft.

The biomedical segment is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 13.1% over the forecast period. Nickel-titanium alloy (nitinol) is one of the key raw materials, which is largely used in medical devices. Medical devices made from nitinol include dental wires, needles, catheter tubes, archwires, guidewires, and other surgical instruments. The biomedical industry is facing many challenging applications that are testing the capability of SMAs. Recent research and development activities are aimed at improving the fatigue life of the material and producing materials with low inclusion sizes.

In 2018, Mishra Dhatu Nigam (MIDHANI), an Indian manufacturer, developed new nitinol material that helps in reducing the stent prices for biomedical and heart devices. The company has also signed a Transfer of Technology Agreement with NAL, in order to explore new areas in biomedical sector.

Asia Pacific is projected to remain a key regional shape memory alloys market over the coming years. Various research institutes and organizations are focusing on development of new industrial applications. Additionally, increasing investments in smart materials, coupled with tax incentives in the manufacturing industry, are likely to boost the China market, thereby fueling the regional market. As per the 13th Five-Year Development Plan of China, new and smart materials such as shape memory alloys, graphene, and nanomaterials are likely to remain focus areas for investors.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

• The biomedical segment is expected to account for the highest market share of 62.0% in 2025. Growth of this segment is attributed to increasing R&D in medical devices and surgical instruments

• The Nickel titanium alloys (nitinol) segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 13.1% during the forecast period. Increasing R&D activities for application-specific products are aiding the growth of this segment

• Asia Pacific is the second largest regional market. Growing population in India and China and increased investment in the healthcare sector are projected to remain key drivers for the long term.

• Europe is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 12.6% during the forecast period. Increasing demand from aerospace and automotive industries are likely to contribute to product demand

• Some of the key players in the market are SAES Group, ATI, Nippon Steel Corporation, Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd., Seabird Metal, and Johnson Matthey. New product development and investment in R&D are key growth strategies of these players.
