The global superconductor market size reached US$ 6.78 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 11.84 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 9.4% during 2023-2028. The growing demand for energy transmission and storage, the rising government initiatives to promote clean energy and advanced technology initiatives, and the increasing awareness of climate represent some of the key factors driving the market.
A superconductor is a material that exhibits minimum electrical resistance when cooled below a certain temperature. It exhibits perfect conductivity for direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) without any energy loss. It has the ability to generate strong magnetic fields, which led to the development of powerful superconducting magnets utilized in magnetic resonance imaging machines and particle accelerators. Compared to regular conductors, which encounter resistance and lose energy as electric currents pass through them, superconductors allow the flow of electrons with almost no loss. It is employed in sensitive detectors for measuring minute magnetic fields, enhancing the performance of devices such as magnetometers and quantum computers. Additionally, it aids in improving the performance of electric power generators, including wind turbines and hydroelectric generators. It also has potential applications in high-speed computing, advanced electronics, and communication systems.
Superconductor Market Trends:
The rising demand for energy transmission and storage is driving the global market. Furthermore, the growing demand for advanced healthcare facilities and imaging technologies is catalyzing the demand for superconducting materials used in MRI systems. Along with this, rapid expansion in the transportation industry is supporting the demand for superconductors as trains utilize superconducting magnets that help in achieving high speeds, low energy consumption, and reduced friction, further offering a greener and more efficient mode of transportation. Besides, several leading players are heavily investing in extensive research and development (R&D) activities to develop new superconducting materials, improve their critical temperatures, and enhance their performance, thus propelling the overall market. In line with this, ongoing advancements in material science, such as the discovery of high-temperature superconductors, are acting as another growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the governments of several countries are offering financial support and grants and are collaborating with academia and several industries to promote clean energy and advanced technology initiatives, thus creating a positive market outlook. Additionally, the increasing awareness of climate change and the need to transition to low-carbon technologies are impacting the market favorably as they improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and enable renewable energy integration to align with global efforts to combat climate change. The growing need for advanced infrastructure, such as high-speed railways, advanced energy systems, and smart cities, is also impelling the market as superconductors exhibit the ability to improve energy efficiency, reduce emissions, and enhance transportation systems positions.
