Global Titanium Age Market: Trends and Opportunities
Titanium is highly in demand from last few years on account of the growth in the oil and gas industry. The thriving power industry and aviation industry are also fueling the demand for titanium and this is encouraging the market’s growth. Moreover, medical devices such as defibrillators and pacemakers are made using titanium, which is leading to a growth in the market. As titanium offers the strength of steel but at half its weight and can endure high temperature, their demand is expected to continue to escalate. However, the volatility in raw material pricing and also the high cost of products made from titanium are likely to restrict the market’s growth.
On a positive note however, the unavailability of any substitute will ensure a continued growth of the market. In addition to this, manufacturers are striving towards achieving cost effectiveness in the manufacturing process itself. These recent developments of manufacturing in a cost effective manner are also creating a positive outlook for the future of the market.
