The "Atomizing Metal Powder Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis" report has been added to's offering.

The atomizing metal powder market was valued at US$ 919.26 million in 2021 and is projected to reach US$ 1,400.67 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2021 to 2028.

Metal powders can be manufactured using various processes such as atomization, chemical synthesis, electrolysis, and solid-state reduction. Out of these processes, atomization is a dominant method to produce metal and pre-alloyed powders, such as iron, aluminum, copper, steel, bronze, and tin.

The technique uses high pressure fluid jets to disperse molten metal stream into fine droplets, which then solidifies into fine particles. There are various types of atomization processes, such as water atomization, gas atomization, centrifugal atomization, and ultrasonic atomization. Water and gas atomization are popular and commercially used processes owing to their cost efficiency and easy availability.

Atomizing metal powder has wide applications in metallurgy, coating, and decorations, additive manufacturing, and sintered parts. The various kinds of metal powders are used as bonding agents in the fabrication of diamond cutting and grinding tools. Moreover, the increasing use of additive manufacturing is driving growth in the growth of the atomizing metal powder market.

Based on application, the global atomizing metal powder market is segmented into metallurgy, coating and decorations, electronic materials, sintered parts, diamond cutting tools, additive manufacturing, and others. In 2020, the additive manufacturing segment held the largest market share.
