Precipitation hardening is also called age hardening or particle hardening. It is a heat treatment process undertaken on pliable materials such as aluminum, magnesium, and stainless steel to improve their mechanical strength and corrosion resistance. The increasing use of precipitation hardening in material processing and manufacturing industries is projected to propel the global precipitation hardening market growth. According to the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the manufacturing industry in the US accounted for about ~10% of the total GDP in the year 2020.
The global precipitation hardening market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end use into automotive industry, aerospace industry, and others. Of them, the automotive industry is expected to grow the fastest during the forecast period owing to the increasing number of vehicles manufactured across the world. Over 78 million motor vehicles were produced worldwide in the year 2021, an increase of about ~2% from the numbers in 2020.
The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, the Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% of manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in the future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, which accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. The easy availability of low-cost raw materials & labor, as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms, have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
