Drivers –Nickel Alloys Market

  • Increasing use of Nickel Alloy in Nuclear Power Plant
Nickel containing corrosion and heat-resistant alloys play an important role in ensuring the integrity, durability and long-term performance of nuclear power stations. Nickel alloys are used in both heat transfer and cooling systems inside the reactor vessel. In addition, hastelloy is used to resist molten salts used as a fuel and coolant in the early development of molten salt nuclear reactors for propulsion and power generation. Significant heat transfer processes are used in producing energy at both nuclear and fossil-fired power plants such as steam engines, heat exchangers, coolers, condensers, reservoirs, pipe work, valves and fittings. Copper-nickel is best suited for these applications. Nickel alloy has been used in several cooling water systems that are using seawater as the process water or where corrosion is a big concern. Also, Nickel alloys are commonly used for waste storage containers and glove boxes as well as heat exchangers and other transport equipment.

  • Increasing demand from aerospace industry 
Nickel alloys are commonly used in the aerospace industry, particularly in engine manufacturing. Owing to the superior property of Nickel Alloy compared to other materials, such as steel and stainless steel, nickel alloys are used to produce various parts of aircraft engines. In addition, inconel alloy a type of nickel alloy is mostly used in turbine engines because of its ability to retain its strength and resistance to corrosion in very high temperature conditions. Use of Inconel alloy in manufacturing aerospace products reduces the total weight of the aircraft and makes it fuel-efficient.  With an increase in the passenger air travel, the global aerospace industry is growing at a significant pace.  New aircrafts is introduced by the airline companies in order to expand its businesses. The number of people using air transport is growing, which in turn is increasing demand for new aircraft. This demand is expected to drive the growth of the companies supplying the aviation manufacturing industry with aerospace components. According to the International Civil Aviation Organization, 1606 new commercial aircraft were manufactured by the major world manufacturers in 2018.

Challenges –Nickel Alloys Market

  • Health Risks of Nickel Consumption 
About 10-20% population today is allergic to nickel. Allergic reaction is the most common health hazard caused by nickel. Prolonged contact of nickel with the skin may lead to allergic skin reaction that may present as a skin rash at the site of contact, such as eczema and sometimes dermatitis.  Asthma is developed by some people due to the exposure of nickel via inhalation. Breathing dust, drinking water, consuming food or smoking tobacco, will lead humans to consume small amount nickel into their body. Nickel particles are irritants to the lungs and can induce pneumonitis. Nickel exposure causes serious health hazards such as chronic bronchitis, reduced lung function, and cancer of lung and nasal sinus.
