Iron Powder Market: Introduction
Iron powder is a particle form of iron with a particle size, varying from 20-200 μm. In industry, Iron powder are produced through solid reduced, atomized and electrolytic process. However, the selection of the manufacturing process is depend upon particle size and uniformity in the production process. Moreover, Iron powder is also referred as zero valent iron (ZVI) powders. Iron powder finds usage in several industrial applications such as automotive, food, packaging, and coating, among others. For instance, in food industry, the Iron powder is used to maintain the nutritional value of the food i.e. for food fortification which help to evade iron deficiency. Also, Iron powder as an additive mainly used in paint & coating industry to impart properties such as luster and shine, among others. Moreover, demand for iron powder is prevalent in 3D- Printing technology application which is expected to gain significant traction in the healthcare and automotive sector. Major application of iron powder is in automotive industry for manufacturing of automotive parts, friction materials for breaks pads, break lining to name a few. Iron powder is also an important part of food packaging industry for water purification, manufacturing of ferrous and Ferric salts, among others.
Iron Powder Market: Dynamics
Across the globe, there has been significant growth in the vehicle production which in turn is expected to drive the demand for the iron powder market over the forecast period. In the automotive industry, iron powder is consumed for the powder metallurgy application through which several automotive parts, gears, bearing and Sintered components, among others. In recent times, additive manufacturing and Metal Injection Molding (MIM) process in gaining traction in several end use industries owing to which the demand for iron powder is expected to increase across the globe. Along with this, growing demand for Iron powder for protective powder coating application which is also supported by stringent government norms that in turn is expected to propel the iron powder market over the forecast period.
Across the globe, around 33% of population is suffering through Anemia, caused due to iron deficiency. As a preventive steps, iron powder is used for the food fortification and for the production of the medicines. Thus, with increasing patient pool of iron deficiency anemia (IDA), demand for iron powder is expected to increase. Recently, porous iron powder, sponge-like structure, is being used for removing contaminants from water and water waste
