Global Braze Alloys Market: Overview
The process of brazing involves joining of two or more metals via melting before using another metal in the melted form in the joint as filler. The filler metal also called the braze alloy, lowers the melting point of the main metals involved in the brazing process. A braze alloy’s melting temperature is generally above 450°C. However, this temperature should not be above the melting point of the base metals involved. Braze alloys are utilized in various forms, such as powder, foils, paste, braze wires, rods, and tapes. The demand and popularity of the braze alloys market across the globe can be attributed to the growing utilization of braze alloys for a wide range of applications across various end-user industries.
Global Braze Alloys Market: Growth Factors
The major growth driver of the global braze alloys market in the future is the increasing preference toward brazing process over soldering, welding, etc. for bonding metals in a wide range of end-user industries across the globe. The process of brazing has several advantages, such as cost-effectiveness, ductile, ability to join metals with varied components, good electrical conductivity, self-fluxing. This, in turn, is anticipated to drive the expansion of the braze alloys market across the globe in the upcoming years. The increasing manufacturing of automotive and their varied components and the growing utilization of brazed parts by the electrical and electronics industry are other factors that are projected to contribute significantly to the development of the braze alloys market globally in the years to come.
Global Braze Alloys Market: Segmentation
The global braze alloys market is categorized into the end-user industry and base metal. On the basis of end-user industry, this global market is segmented into construction, electronics and electrical, automotive, and others (medical, dental, and aerospace). The automotive sector is projected to dominate this global over the forecast timeframe, owing to the large-scale brazing applications in condenser and evaporator connections for brake linings, fuel injection pipes, and ACs. By base metal, the global braze alloys market includes aluminum, silver, gold, copper, and others (palladium and nickel). Copper-based braze alloys are extensively used across various end-user industries, owing to their excellent thermal and electrical conductivity and supreme resistance to corrosion.
Global Braze Alloys Market: Regional Analysis
By region, this global market is primarily divided into Asia Pacific, North America, the Middle East and Africa, Europe, and Latin America. The Asia Pacific region is likely to register a substantial rate of growth in the braze alloys market in the future. This can be attributed to the region’s flourishing automotive industry due to increased investments made by major companies for automotive manufacturing in the Asia Pacific region. Other factors for the growth of this regional market are huge investments made for the development of commercial, residential, and industrial zones across the region. The European and North American regions represent developed braze alloy markets, and, thus, are likely to witness a sluggish rate of growth over the estimated timeframe. The U.S. is anticipated to hold a substantial share of the North American braze alloys market in the future.
