The superhard materials market size is projected to grow by 5.5% in the forecast period.
The superhard materials market is anticipated to reach approximately USD 4.5 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2022 to 2030. These materials have Vickers hardnesses of more than 40 gigapascals (GPa). They can mold or scratch any material or object due to their exceptional mechanical performance, wear resistance, toughness, and incompressibility. The superhard materials market size is expected to reach approximately USD 4.5 billion by 2030. the product is suited for industrial activities such as cutting, drilling, grinding, turning, and a protective coating. The product is used in various end-user sectors, including automotive, building and construction, chemical, and petrochemical.
COVID-19 has negatively influenced all industries ly, including the market business. The pandemic has had differing degrees of influence on various segments of the superhard materials market. This has compelled every market player to make the necessary changes to remain in the market. The report provides in-depth insights into the pandemic's consequences as well as ideas for future preparedness. It also forecasts the Superhard Materials market's growth and recovery.
Rising demand for superhard materials in manufacturing industries for cutting, drilling, boring, and grinding applications will likely fuel market revenue growth over the forecast period. Another important reason projected to contribute to market revenue growth is the increasing application of these materials in various end-use sectors such as automotive, construction, transportation, chemical, electronics, and so on.
Moreover, the superhard materials business will gain significant impetus as the manufacturing sector grows. The World Bank estimates that China's manufacturing sector GDP increased from 28.81% in 2016 to 29.34% in 2017. Similarly, the manufacturing sector's GDP in the United Kingdom increased from 9.01% in 2016 to 9.2% in 2017. Furthermore, government initiatives in developing economies such as India, such as the Make in India program, Digital India, and Foreign Direct Investment, would position the country as the world's fifth-largest manufacturing organization by the end of 2020. In the foreseeable future, these reasons will drive the industry.
The market is driven by the increasing use of superhard materials in the building and construction industries. This is due to the tremendous strength and wears resistance of the materials used to stabilize the structure, which keeps it safe from earthquakes, tsunamis, and other natural disasters. The use of superhard materials in residential and commercial constructions is expected to enhance market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in 2013, the superhard material and products industry's growth was delayed by insufficient demand from downstream petroleum, construction, and metal-cutting machine tool, as well as the weak economy, and many companies faced high operating costs as a result. In light of this, SF Diamond Co., Ltd, BOSUN Tools Co., Ltd, Henan Huanghe Whirlwind Co., Ltd, and other enterprises took various steps to expand their present production capacity and extend their industrial chain to improve their operational capabilities.
These materials are manufactured at high temperatures and pressures, necessitating costly equipment and a high manufacturing cost. This will be a hindrance to the market shortly. Furthermore, a diamond's great affinity for ferrous materials and low oxidation resistance will limit its employment in machining ferrous materials.
This substance is mostly employed in the stone and building industries. This material contributes to increased impact resistance by incorporating a high abrasion-resistant layer on its surface, reducing tool wear and tear during the cutting process. It also has good heat resistance and thermal conductivity, resulting in better control over energy use while machining. Furthermore, it ensures smooth finishing surfaces with no cracks or chips after use, saving industrial enterprises time and money.
The superhard materials market segmentation, based on type, is diamond and cubic boron nitride. The superhard materials market growth was prominently high under the diamond category in 2021 and is also anticipated to rose at the highest CAGR. Diamond is used in various industries, including jewelry, cutting materials, cosmetics such as diamond powder to eliminate wrinkles, and audio equipment. The new CVD technology will have a substantial impact on the expansion of the diamond industry. Because of its numerous industrial applications, cubic boron nitride will likewise rise in price. Because of their hardness and strength, they are widely utilized in cutting tools and abrasives.
The superhard materials market segmentation, based on form, is Monocrystalline, Polycrystalline, and Composite. In 2021, The monocrystalline category accounted for the greatest revenue share among form segments, and it is also expected to develop at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Due to their superior super abrasive qualities and strength, monocrystalline materials such as diamond and cubic boron nitride are increasingly used in numerous applications such as coatings, cutting tools, abrasives, and so on. Furthermore, the growing use of superhard composites in producing stealth aircraft and automotive body parts will drive the market shortly.
Global Superhard Materials Market Share, by Region, 2021 (%)
By region, the superhard materials market has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America accounted for the most extensive market share. Europe will exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Over the forecast period, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR rate in terms of revenue. Some important drivers driving market revenue growth in the Asia-Pacific are economic expansion, an increase in the number of manufacturing businesses, and rising demand for these materials in building activities, cars and transportation, and the oil and gas industry.
During the projected period, the North American market is expected to account for the largest revenue share. Growing manufacturing industries, industrialization, and rising demand for these materials like synthetic diamond and cubic boron nitride (CBN) in various industries are some of the primary drivers driving revenue growth in the North American market. Market participants in North America are concentrating on designing, developing, and manufacturing superhard materials.
