Steel powders are only a tiny fraction of the worldwide metals undefined, but they play a key position in such high-profile sectors as automobiles and customer electronics. the worldwide worth of steel powder intake has risen for the reason that 2000 to over $3.7 billion from lower than $3 billion. a part of this elevate is because of lately escalating basic steel costs. the rise in total tonnage shipped is within the order of 20%. This fourth variation of steel Powders: an international Survey of creation, purposes & Markets 2001 - 2010 has been thoroughly revised to incorporate the main up to date details to be had, for you to offer a coherent photograph of the advance and standing of the steel powder undefined.
The record is an outline of the construction, functions and markets for steel and alloy powders. The industry info is gifted essentially by way of tonnages as a result of greatly diversified costs of those powders. Markets for every of the steel powder forms are mentioned when it comes to the key software components.
Market info for the most geographical parts are according to facts, supplemented through corporation annual stories and by way of deepest estimates. different facts and forecasts were compiled from literature surveys, own visits and cellphone interviews.
* evaluate of steel and alloy powder intake through form of powder and via geographical area
* industry forecasts to 2010
* Technical evaluation of steel powder production
* around the world overview of significant manufacturers

2002 was a down year for the European PM industry due to the economic situation following the US recession, but, as expressed by Dr Cesar Molins in his EPMA annual report, 2003 was 'at best a transition )rear' to better times. The flurry of mergers and acquisitions in the 'traditional' PM industry more or less came to a halt in 2002. 1 kg/vehicle for the fourth consecutive year. EPMA's executive director, Jonathan Wroe, noted that with the apparent levelling off in total production of the European automotive industry, growth and development of the PM industry would likely depend on diversification of applications.
Production of PM parts in Asia, ex-Japan, increased over 80% between 1998 and 2003 and advanced a further 22% in 2004, fuelled by rapid growth in China, Korea, Malaysia and Thailand. The combined total of ferrous-based and copper-based PM part production in 2004 is estimated at 155 000 tonnes. 12), where it now accounts for 89% of PM parts. In Australia, China, Taiwan and Malaysia, on the other hand, less than half of PM production is for transportation equipment (mainly cars). Some of the Asian countries, such as Malaysia and Singapore are highly involved in production of PM parts for electrical and electronics equipment.
The main producer of metal powders is Metapol SA, since 1996 a subsidiary of Pometon SpA of Italy. Metapol produces about 2000 tonnes/year of nonferrous powders, the bulk of which are exported. The major activity of the Spanish PM industry is in the production of sintered parts and powder forgings. In 2002, the output exceeded 30 000 tonnes, valued at over s million, including about 4000 tonnes of powder-forged connecting rods made in Valencia by Metaldyne for the nearby Ford Motor Co assembly plant.
