Aluminium Alloy in Additive Manufacturing Market Insights

The Global Aluminium Alloy in Additive Manufacturing Market was valued at USD 61.8 million in 2021 and is expected to rise with a CAGR of 24.0% from 2022- 2028 during the forecast period. The expanding aerospace industry and rising utilization of aluminium alloy in additive manufacturing are driving the market. Over the period, there is an advancement in the field of architecture and engineering that has bought many revolutionary changes specifically in the form of digital up-gradation.

Additive manufacturing is known as 3D printing, it is a revolutionary approach to industrial production that enables the production of stronger, lighter, and complex machinery components. The technology can be viewed as a transformation of analog to digital processes.

Digital efficiency and flexibility have bought creativity to the manufacturers that have helped them to understand the key requirement of consumers. For instance, recently OEMs like Airbus have used 3D printing technology to print spare parts of an old aircraft of US Airlines which was anticipated to be a fleet of Airbus A320 with a current engine (A320ceo). The successful, execution of the project has garnered confidence among the manufacturers to further use additive technology for further industrial use. Thus, a rise in global demand for the requirement of less expensive, more durable, stabilized, corrosion resistance products is driving the demand for aluminium alloys in additive manufacturing.

The aerospace industry is one of the growing industries owing to the higher employment and increased revenues it experiences. With the advent of autonomy, there has been an increased demand for autonomous flight systems which has impacted the industry positively.

The 3D Printing Industry is focused on innovating and developing new products that contribute to the net-zero carbon emission goals, during the next several years will propel the industry growth manifold. Therefore, high-strength Al alloys are widely used for manufacturing structural components in the aerospace industry because of their excellent strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios as well as good machinability.

Additive manufacturing in the industry caters to its advancement in end-use parts manufacturing and prototyping. Thus, additive manufacturing or 3D printing processes are considered as most suitable manufacturing methods in the industry.

Covid Impact on Global Aluminium Alloy in Additive Manufacturing Market

The additive manufacturing industry has gained popularity during COVID-19 by making urgent parts with rapid designs. However, challenges such as standardization & regulation across this sector could diminish some of the safety concerns identified. For instance, the British Standards Institution (BSI), the national standards body in the UK, released a guide specifically for organizations, schools, and universities manufacturing PPE with no prior experience to support these initiatives. The effects of the global coronavirus pandemic have resonated through many lives, overturning aspects of health care, transportation, and the global economy.

COVID-19 has critically impacted the demand for aluminium alloys in additive manufacturing among numerous end-use industries, namely aerospace & defense, healthcare, automotive, and others. The disruption of supply chain due to global lockdown resulted in delays of raw materials. Thus, disrupted financial flows, along with the growing unavailability of workers have compelled aircraft and automobile manufacturers to operate at minimal capacities. Furthermore, the economical destruction caused by the covid-19 pandemic is majorly driven by a fall in consumption/demand globally.
