DUBLIN, Dec. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Bulk Metallic Glass Market – A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on End-Use Application, Product Type, Technology Type, and Region – Analysis and Forecast, 2022-2031” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global bulk metallic glass market is projected to reach $246.3 million by 2031 from $47.6 million in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 17.9% during the forecast period 2022-2031.
The growth in the bulk metallic glass market is expected to be driven by the increasing usage from supporting industries such as electrical, electronics, and sports.
Market Lifecycle Stage
Bulk metallic glass (BMG) is a developing industry. Increased research and development activities are underway to increase the commercialization of bulk metallic glass. BMGs have found many wide and diverse applications in the electrical and electronics industry, from durable mobile phones to personal electronic devices such as MP3 players and personal digit assistants.
Booming product consumption in the electrical, electronics, and sports sectors is the chief factor augmenting the overall market growth. Additionally, BMGs have great potential in biomedical applications ranging from orthopedic and cardiovascular to dental implants and fillers. The U.S. has the largest industry for bulk metallic glass, as the country inhabits a healthy environment for technological developments and advancements.
The bulk metallic glass market based on the end-use application segment is expected to be dominated by consumer electronics and wearables. This is due to the unique properties offered by BMGs coupled with a wide variety of technological advancements and intensive research to provide smaller consumer electronics items.
The bulk metallic glass market is dominated by the metal-metal product type. This is because these glasses offer higher structural strength and enable the material to be used in places with the requirement of high strength and good ductility. It also allows the structure to be magnetized, supporting them to be used broadly across various industrial industries.
Casting technology type led the bulk metallic glass market in 2021 and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period 2022-2031. As it is one of the most tested technologies to produce amorphous metals in huge quantities. Moreover, this technology is low-priced as compared to other technologies, such as thermoplastic forming.
Asia-Pacific and Japan led the bulk metallic glass market in 2021, and it is anticipated to uphold its dominance throughout the forecast period.
