The shape memory alloys market has been classified on the basis of type into nitinol alloys, copper-based alloys, iron-manganese-silicon alloys, and others.
The North American region is expected to be the largest market for shape memory alloys across the globe, and the APAC shape memory alloys market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. The growth of the market in the region can be attributed to the increasing demand from consumer electronics & home appliances industries from countries in the APAC region, such as China, South Korea, Japan, and India.
Moreover, the availability of cheap labor in the APAC region and favorable government policies have attracted several global companies and investors to establish their production facilities in the region, thereby fueling the demand for shape memory alloys from various end-use industries, such as automotive, aerospace & defense, biomedical, and consumer, electronics & home appliances.
The major factors restraining the growth of the shape memory alloys market across the globe are the rising cost of raw materials of these alloys. Raw materials of shape memory alloys include metals, such as nickel, copper, titanium, aluminum, and other materials. The prices of nickel, chromium, molybdenum, cobalt, and other raw materials are on the rise. Moreover, the rising demand for these alloys from emerging economies in the APAC has led to a significant demand and supply imbalance.
