Magnetostrictive Materials: Introduction and Overview
Magnetostrictive materials are used to transform electromagnetic energy into mechanical energy and vice versa. This effect can be used to construct sensors that measure a magnetic field or sense a force. Tension in the material will produce the magnetic field or force applied to the respective object. To produce vibrations, a shifting magnetic field may also be used in combination with magnetostrictive materials.
The magnetostrictive materials are extensively used in manufacturing medical devices, industrial vibrators, ultrasonic cleaning devices, underwater sonar systems, vibration or noise control systems, and a bundle of other applications. Diversification of the product across the industries is set to boost the market over the longer-run forecast period.
To amplify the vibration amplitude of the equipment, the mechanical lever could be used. Therefore, the effect of complementary goods is also high over the magnetostrictive materials. Dependence over complementary goods is set to affect the dynamics of the market negatively. The magnetostrictive material is widely used in industrial, medical, underwater, control system, robotics and many more applications.
The need of magnetostrictive material in abundant areas is due to its ability to change its dimension and shape under the action of magnetic flux. This ability of the magnetostrictive material allows it to transform electromagnetic energy into mechanical energy indeed allows it to be used in building actuators, sensors and other technical components. Magnetostriction effect can be found in materials such as iron, cobalt, nickel, lanthanum and terbium.
Magnetostrictive Materials: Dynamics
Magnetostrictive material has wide-area applications having high sales accounting the same in terms of global level market. The increased use and advancements in technology made the market for magnetostrictive material see upsurge demand. The availability of raw material for magnetostrictive material in abundance also accounts for fueling the market for a longer run.
Moreover, the rise in demand from various end-users like automotive, defence, aerospace and consumer electronics are crucial factors driving the market growth of magnetostrictive materials. Furthermore, the increased investment by key players, initiatives by government and regulations to minimize cost and optimize the quality of magnetostrictive material are also expected to boost the market of magnetostrictive material. The only strings pulling back the market growth of magnetostrictive material are the regulations set by governments in the European region.
COVID-19 Impact Insights
Lockdowns, restrictions and regulations made by governments across the world to control the virus have impacted businesses around the globe. The shutdown of all the industries in the second quarter of the year 2020, created chaos in the global economic curve. Supply chain disruptions due to travel restriction and containment of the infected zone affected the availability of raw materials in the magnetostrictive material market.
COVID-19 had a greater level of influence in investors and investment decisions of the companies, most of the companies started hitting back with aggressive measures to sustain in the market as a result of less investment in research and development even in the magnetostrictive material market.
In the earlier days of lockdown, the magnetostrictive material market saw a dip in demand from industrial applications like robotics, underwater technology and others but anyhow there was an unexpectedly huge demand from the health care sector as the governments of countries all around the globe started to spend dollars for the procurement of medical equipment where a bundle of uses of Magnetostrictive material is observed. Thus, causing the infrastructural development followed the demand from the healthcare sector.
The demand for Magnetostrictive material from industrial applications has started to resume after the countries with low infection rates began to lift the lockdown. Even after lifting of lockdown, there are many guidelines applied to be followed by industries. The magnetostrictive material market growth has resumed in Asia and expected to regain momentum in the European market. The demand for Magnetostrictive material in the market will be right back on track expected to be in the second quarter of 2021.

Magnetostrictive Materials Market: Regional Outlook
The global magnetostrictive material market seems positive due to the applicability of the material in almost all industries and sector. Based on the regional split, the report “Magnetostrictive Materials” takes into account six prominent regions including North America, Europe, Latin America, East Asia, South Asia and Oceania and Middle East & Africa.
Most of the market share is bagged by the companies operating in the Asia Pacific. The raw material required for magnetostrictive material is available in adequate quantity in Asia-Pacific region making it to contribute a solid share in global magnetostrictive material market. Even the consumption of magnetostrictive material is accounted to be high in Asia-Pacific as the consumption of consumer electronics is high in this region.
For the magnetostrictive material market, Europe and North America is the most prominent region after Asia pacific. This is because North America and Europe account for more than 47% percentage of the world’s manufacturing output causing it to have a significant amount of consumption in the processes.
But the players in the European market are vulnerable to the pricing of magnetostrictive material due to low availability of raw material as compared to the players in Asia pacific as raw material sourcing is cheaper in this region and also have lesser government regulations.Latin America also contributes a significant amount of share in the magnetostrictive material market. MEA shows a notable consumption of magnetostrictive material as there is momentous consumption of Electronic gadgets i8n this region.
