Sintering Process Market Global Industry Volume
The sintering process market is anticipated to grow largely in the Asia Pacific region owing to the tremendous rise in the automotive and construction industry. Major demand drivers for the sintering process market in Asia Pacific are the emerging economies such as China, India, Indonesia etc. The growth of the sintering process in the North American and European region has been on a d ownward trend over the past few years due the stringent rules and regulations put forth by the government due to the harm it causes to the environment through various harmful emissions. In addition, the rapid industrial development and technological development in the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to provide a fertile environment for the growth of the sintering process market.
Sintering is primarily the process of using heat or pressure to compact and form a solid mass without melting the solid to the point of liquefaction. The temperature used for the sintering process is always below the melting point of the major component present in the powdered metal. Sintering is the most widely used process in the powder metallurgy industry as it enhances various properties of metals including electrical conductivity, strength, thermal conductivity and translucency. In addition, sintering also aids in reducing the porosity of the metal. During the process of sintering, the powdered metal particles are bonded through diffusion and the resulting porous body acquires the desired mechanical strength. The process of sintering is governed by various parameters including temperature and time, the composition of the powdered mix, the geometrical structure of various powdered particles, and composition of the atmosphere in the sintering furnace and the density of the powder compact.
The sintering process is solely driven due to the powder metallurgy industry. Growth of this technology is anticipated to be steady over the next few years. Sintering is a widely used in various end-user industries for the manufacture of sintered parts including the automotive industry, construction industry and the electronics and electrical industry among others. The sintering process imparts some desired properties that the metal lacks. Sintering increases the life of the metal and enhances its strength, conductivity etc. However, other technologies are likely to replace sintering over the next few years due to the harmful effects it causes to the environment and health. Several government regulations on the usage of the sintering process are being implemented. However, technological developments in the sintering industry, has ensured that this process has found a wide range of end user applications in various end user industries.
