Isostatic Pressing Market Analysis Growth Demand, Key Players, Share Size, and Forecast To 2028

Isostatic Pressing Market- Introduction

Isostatic pressing is the powder metallurgy forming process which applies equal pressure on the product regardless of the shape and size in all the directions to achieve maximum uniformity for microstructure and density. Isostatic pressing includes hot isostatic pressing and cold isostatic pressing. Cold isostatic pressing is material processing method used to compact green parts. While hot isostatic pressing is used to increase density of ceramic metals and reduce porosity of the metals.

Isostatic Pressing Market Dynamics

Increasing Use of Additive Manufacturing Technique Driving Isostatic Pressing Market

Increasing use of various processes under additive manufacturing including rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and powder metallurgy across wide range of industries is accelerating the use of isostatic pressing. Hot isostatic pressing is being used as the final step in various additive manufacturing processes in order to consolidate the formed product by the solid state diffusion.

Additive manufacturing is finding wide application in the research and development sector and in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, and medical device manufacturing due to the ability to produce components in these industries at low cost and in less time. This is leading to the growing demand for hot isostatic pressing which improves yield when used as an integral part of the manufacturing process.

Growing Adoption of Hot Isostatic Pressing Process in Automotive Industry

The hot isostatic pressing process is being largely adopted in the automotive industry in order to reduce the manufacturing cost of titanium alloys and other super-alloys. The hot isostatic pressing process leads to less manufacturing time along with the reduced cost as compared to other conventional processes. The time and cost benefit are driving the demand for hot isostatic pressing process in automotive industry.

The hot isostatic pressing is used largely in the development of automotive engine components. Moreover, producing multiple diffusion bonds, hot isostatic pressing process and cladding is used to coat materials with superior properties, such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance into more economical substrate, in order to design parts and components cost-effectively. The demand for hot isostatic pressed components is likely to find wide application in automotive industry in the coming years with increasing use of 3D printing technology in automotive component manufacturing.

High Initial Cost of Isostatic Pressing to Restrain Isostatic Pressing Market Growth

Isostatic pressing is largely used across industries to achieve high compact densities and get access to the shapes that cannot be obtained using other pressing techniques. The wet bag and dry bag processes are used in production of components, offering efficiency and high compact densities. However, both wet and dry type of isostatic pressing the tooling cost and complexity is higher than other pressing processes.

In recent years, the use of hot isostatic pressing has increased across industries, however, hot isostatic pressing is very expensive due to the high equipment cost. Meanwhile, manufacturers are focusing on offering better properties that are unique to the process required in the application, thereby, justifying extra cost.
