The global non-ferrous metals market size reached US$ 1,079 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1,459 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% during 2023-2028. The rising product utilization in the automotive industry, the growing product demand in the construction industry, the recent development of advanced coatings and treatments, and the adoption of sustainable production and recycling techniques represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Non-ferrous metals refer to metallic substances that do not contain iron (Fe) as their principal component. It includes copper, zinc, lead, aluminum, tin, nickel, titanium, chromium, magnesium, silver, platinum, and gold. They are widely used in electronic devices, automobile parts, jewelry, home appliances, decorative items, aircraft, satellites, defense equipment, medical instruments, batteries, building materials, packaging, and industrial machinery. Non-ferrous metals are non-magnetic substances and offer several characteristic properties, such as high corrosion resistance, lower melting point, excellent thermal and electrical conductivities, ductility, and malleability. They are cost-effective, lightweight, readily available, and easy to recycle substances, which aids in reducing energy consumption, and minimizing adverse environmental impact. As a result, non-ferrous metals find extensive applications across the automotive, aerospace, healthcare, defense, consumer electronics, construction, and manufacturing industries.
Non-Ferrous Metals Market Trends:
The rising product utilization in the automotive industry is one of the primary factors providing an impetus to the market growth. Non-ferrous metals are widely used in various automotive parts, such as body panels, engine blocks, pistons, cylinder heads, wheels, wiring, radiator, transmission casing, steering, interior trim, suspension parts, exhaust systems, and catalytic converters. Along with this, the increasing product application in electric vehicles (EVs), such as battery packs, enclosures, charging components, chassis, heat sinks, electric motors, and cooling systems, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the growing product demand in the construction industry to manufacture windows, doors, curtain wall systems, plumbing pipes and fittings, roofing and shielding components, and structural materials, such as beams and columns, is providing a thrust to the market growth. Additionally, the recent development of advanced surface coatings and treatments, such as electroplating, anodizing, and thin film deposition techniques, which improve corrosion and wear resistance, provide lustrous properties, and enhance the aesthetic appeal of non-ferrous metal products, is positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, the adoption of sustainable production and recycling techniques, which reduces waste generation, and improves metal recovery, is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the rising product adoption in the electrical and electronics industry to produce wires, connectors, transformers, enclosures, switches, relays, and printed circuit boards (PCBs) is supporting the market growth. Other factors, including rapid industrialization activities, increasing investments in the development of advanced extraction techniques, and growing infrastructural development activities, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
