Heat Treating Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Material (Steel , Cast Iron , Others), By Equipment (Fuel Fired Furnace , Electrically Heated Furnace , Others), By End-User (Automotive, Aerospace, Metalworking, Machine, Construction, Others) And Regional Forecast 2021-2028

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104963 | Status : Ongoing



The heat-treating method is used to alter the physical and chemical properties of a material. The Heat Treating process consists of annealing, hardening, tempering, quenching, carburizing, and carbonitriding and equipment like salt bath furnaces, batch type furnaces, vacuum furnace, deep freeze, and high-speed tool steels. The global heat treating market is rapidly increasing across the globe, owing to the increasing demand from automotive, aerospace, construction, energy, and metalworking applications.

Based on material, the global market is classified into steel, cast iron, and others. The steel segment accounted for the major share of the market in 2020, owing to its high tensile strength, and lightweight properties. Aluminum is also the key segment of the market. It is primarily used in the production of automotive components and aerospace parts. The other segment comprises aluminum, copper alloys, nickel alloys, brass, titanium alloys, and other metals.

Based on equipment, the market is classified into fuel-fired furnaces, electrically heated furnaces, and others. Electrically heated furnaces dominated the market in 2020. Electrically heated furnace helps to save the fuel cost and also operate at high operational efficiency. Fuel fired furnaces are mainly operate using fossil fuels and gases. An increasing number of regulations on boiler emissions, standard temperature, and effluents from furnaces has led to a shift from fuel-fired furnaces to electric furnaces.

Based on application, the market is classified into automotive, aerospace, metalworking, machine, construction, and others. Among these, the automotive segment accounted for the major share of the market and it expected that it will maintain its dominance during the forecast period, owing to rapidly increasing production lightweight vehicle production across the globe. Construction is also the key segment of the market, as steel structures are widely used in construction, such as beams, columns, and grills.

The global heat treating market is mainly driven by the increasing demand from the automotive and construction industry. In the automotive sector, the heat-treating method is mainly used in the production of lightweight parts, as heat treatment improves hardness as well as the tensile strength of the metal along with imparting rust resistance to the metal. Apart from this, the use of heat treating services in construction activities and manufacturing units will further expand the market scope in the foreseeable future. Heat treatment increases ductile strength, durability, tensile strength, and toughness of steel for construction application.

The key restraint of the market is the high cost associated with the initial setup of heat treating system coupled with stringent environmental regulations on fuel-based furnaces

Key Market Driver -

Rising Demand from Automtive & Construction Sector

Key Market Restraint -

High Intsallation Cost Associated With Heat Treating Poses Threat to Market Growth
