Steel powders are only a tiny fraction of the worldwide metals undefined, but they play a key position in such high-profile sectors as autos and buyer electronics. the worldwide worth of steel powder intake has risen considering that 2000 to over $3.7 billion from lower than $3 billion. a part of this bring up is because of lately escalating basic steel costs. the rise in total tonnage shipped is within the order of 20%. This fourth version of steel Powders: a world Survey of creation, functions & Markets 2001 – 2010 has been thoroughly revised to incorporate the main updated details on hand, as a way to supply a coherent photo of the advance and standing of the steel powder undefined.
The document is an summary of the construction, functions and markets for steel and alloy powders. The marketplace information is gifted essentially when it comes to tonnages as a result greatly diversified costs of those powders. Markets for every of the steel powder kinds are mentioned by way of the main program components.
Market facts for the most geographical parts are in accordance with records, supplemented through corporation annual stories and via deepest estimates. different information and forecasts were compiled from literature surveys, own visits and mobile interviews.
* assessment of steel and alloy powder intake through form of powder and via geographical area
* marketplace forecasts to 2010
* Technical evaluate of steel powder production
* around the world overview of significant manufacturers

Altogether, the UK PM parts industry accounted for 8% of the European market, valued at about Cl10 million. Metal powder production in the UK is largely confined to the non-ferrous sector, where major global and European suppliers dominate. INCO Special Products produces nickel powders at the INCO refinery in Clydach, South Wales, Makin Metal Powders (subsidiary of United States Bronze Powders) manufactures copper-based powders in Rochdale, Lancashire, and The Aluminium Powder Co (Alpoco) makes aluminium powders in Holyhead, North Wales, and Sutton Coldfield in the Midlands.
Finally, in Norway, metal powders of another kind are manufactured by Hafslund Metall A/S, a wholly-owned subsidiary of FESIL ASA, which operates a ferro-silicon smelter near Sarpsborg. Hafslund MetaU runs a 10 000 tonnes/year water-atomization plant for the production of 15% FeSi powder for the heavy-medium separation of ores and scrap, and 45% Fe-Si powders for use in coatings on welding rods. Elsewhere, two Norwegian companies, Lyng Motor A/S and Smart Motor A/S are using soft magnetic composite materials (SMCs) in electrical machine applications, utilizing the three-dimensional magnetic properties of SMCs.
The most well-known, Dansk Sintermetal A/S, has about 100 employees and is the largest manufacturer of stainless steel sintered parts in the Nordic countries, producing about 1000 tonnes of components annually, mostly for non-automotive markets.
