MIM parts market forecast

Expanding electronics sector to fuel MIM Parts market growth through 2019 to 2026

Posted on

Metal Injection Molding (MIM) parts market is set to witness promising growth on account of its increased application in the electronics industry. Increasing use of MIM parts for defense, automobile, and aerospace segment are likely to further aid growth of MIM parts market during the forecast timeframe.The electronics segment has a considerable volume share in the MIM parts industry. Today, MIM parts are used in fiber optic parts, lighting devices, and smartphone parts among others. Sustained development of new cost-efficient technologies is expected to boost the consumer electronics segment industry in the coming years.

In 2018, electronics segment was the second-largest end-user industry with a market share of more than 33%. The segment is further estimated to grow at CAGR of more than 13% during the forecast timeframe.

Meanwhile, in terms of regional growth, China would mark a significant growth rate in a forthcoming timeframe owing to its rapidly expanding electronics industry. Additionally, rising automotive sales in emerging economies such as China, India, and Japan would create a dual-channel that would drive momentous growth in the industry.

With regards to industry, the MIM Parts market would likely witness significant growth in the future on account of the projected growth of the aerospace industry. Stabilizing crude oil prices, increasing passenger travel in Latin America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East, and recovering in GDP growth are some of the key factors that are driving the commercial aircraft sector growth.

Metal injection molding technology is used to manufacture numerous components in the aerospace sector, including compressor blades, fasteners, bushings, inlets, brackets, and rotors among others.

Increasing defense spending from nations like the U.S, India, China, Japan, and Saudi Arabia is anticipated to further fuel defense aircraft demand during the forecast timespan. This opens up another facet of the aerospace sector for the MIM parts market.

Based on material, stainless steel is the most used metal for metal injection molding. In fact, it accounted for more than 60% of the total market share in 2018. This segment is projected to retain its dominance by the end of the forecast timeframe.
