Global Shape Memory Alloys Market to Reach US$20 Billion by the Year 2026

Shape memory alloys (SMAs) are materials with an interesting ability to get back to their original shape following deformation upon exposure to a specific temperature. The transition of these alloys from their high-temperature stronger form to low-temperature weaker form results in a phase change in their crystal structure. The inherent phase shift allows shape memory alloys to display compelling properties like super elasticity and shape memory effect. Growth in the global market is attributable to increasing application scope along with potential use of these alloys in diverse domains. Future expansion of the market is anticipated to be also bolstered by rising uptake of these alloys in various safety devices like fire sprinklers and anti-scalding. While the market expansion was restrained by COVID-19-led disruptions and impact on primary end-use industries, shape memory alloys are poised to gain from promising scope in the medical arena. The increasing focus on new material properties for industrial applications is set to expand the scope of shape memory alloys. Commercial application of these alloys is poised to increase consistently with ongoing advances and understanding into their properties. These alloys are slated to benefit from rising attention on shape memory materials that are key components of smart composites due to their intriguing characteristics like enhanced damping capacity, pseudoelasticity and shape memory effect.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Shape Memory Alloys estimated at US$10.4 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$20 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 11.5% over the analysis period. Nitinol, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 11.6% CAGR to reach US$15.8 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Copper-Based segment is readjusted to a revised 14.1% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 13.2% share of the global Shape Memory Alloys market. Nickel-titanium alloys, collectively termed as nitinol, have emerged as the most popular and useful shape memory alloys in the recent years. Nitinol is witnessing increasing acceptance in several applications in the field of robotics, military, safety and medical. In addition to medical applications, nitinol is experiencing broader adoption in robotics actuators as well as micromanipulators for stimulating motion of the human muscle.
