Metal Replacement Market

Metal Replacement Market

Metal replacement means replacing heavy metals with lightweight metals, typically made of plastic or composite materials, to reduce overall weight, cost and production time. Components exposed to vibration, stress, aggressive media, and heat can be fabricated using composites and engineering plastics instead of metal to reduce weight. Metals are replaced by a variety of major end-use industries such as automotive, construction, medical and packaging.

The Metal Replacement Market is expected to reach $ 166,762 million by 2022 with a CAGR of 9.0% from 2016 to 2022. The engineering plastics segment accounted for almost three-quarters of the overall market in 2015.

The world metal replacement market is now seeing many opportunities as the demand for lightweight materials used in automotive and aircraft manufacturing parts increases. The diverse application of metal replacement in the automotive, construction, aerospace and defense, medical and consumer goods industries is another factor expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. In addition, market growth is accelerating with the need for more cost-effective and efficient vehicles and the increased production technology of lightweight plastics.

Metal substitutes are expected to show the highest growth in the automotive industry due to increased use of plastics and composites. In addition, as a lightweight alternative, engineering plastics and composites have the advantages of high operational reliability, long machine life, high energy savings, high strength and reduced maintenance costs. It is expected that the increase in the use of ABS to reduce the design complexity and overall weight of the aerospace and defense industry and the demand for the improvement of the quality of the packaging products will promote the growth of the metal replacement market.

The construction sector accounted for about a quarter of the volume in 2015. With years of change in the construction industry, efficient and lightweight construction components are now in high demand worldwide. In addition, the need for lightweight, cost-effective structural solutions is increasing, and the adoption of the latest metal substitution technologies related to composite use is leading the global metal replacement market.
