    Heat-Treated Steel Plates Market Size Forecast to Reach $132.03 Billion by 2027
    (I-BusinessNews.Com, April 03, 2022 ) Heat Treated Steel Plates Market size is forecast to reach US$132.03 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2022-2027. Heat treatment for steel plates is a controlled process, that is used to change the microstructure of steel and its alloys, which is to be known as alloy steel, to give them additional improved properties like the surface stiffness, temperature tolerance, ductility, and resilience, which is expected to help them last for a longer period of time. This Heat-treated steel plate undergoes through processes called homogenization, which makes the steel plate uniform, and normalizing, which involves heating the steel plate to an extremely high temperature within a furnace, to make the alloy steel more ductile and tough. Many process procedures such as initial composition, alloying elements, atmosphere, time, sintering temperature, and nitrocarburizing take part and influence the microstructure of steel plates. With such numerous benefits involved, heat-treated steel plates play an important role in the construction, aerospace, automotive and industrial machinery markets. Asia-Pacific is dominating the Heat-treated steel plates market due to an upsurge in the use of steel across the growing building & construction activities. However, fluctuations within the prices of raw materials are expected to restrain the expansion of the market. The Heat-treated Steel Plates market within the Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period thanks to growing industrialization and expansion of the energy and aviation industry in the region.

    COVID-19 Impact

    The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to complete or partial lockdown in several countries. This hampered the market, owing to the pandemic scenario various end-user industries, such as aerospace and automotive, among others, were temporarily shut down across the world during the government-imposed lockdowns. Also, the volatility in steel prices has been noticed much during the lockdowns and re-opening of them. According to OCED Organisation, “The slump in demand caused by the global pandemic comes as steel production and inventories continue to grow in China. The Committee also noted with concern that the difficult market conditions were causing significant job losses in the industry. The latest OECD data show that global steelmaking capacity could increase to 2,455.8 million metric tons in 2020. While the gap between global capacity and production narrowed from 2016 to 2019, it is likely to widen to as much as 700 million metric tons this year due to overall capacity increases and production decreases resulting from COVID-19. The Steel Committee noted that new steelmaking capacities due to come into operation in the Middle East and Asia this year are set to exacerbate excess capacity.” However, the introduction of vaccines for COVID-19 and reopening of production facilities gradually are anticipated to lead to re-initiation of Heat-treated Steel Plates companies at their full-scale capacities.

    Heat-treated Steel Plates Market Segment Analysis – By Steel type

    The Carbon Steel segment held the largest share of 47% in the Heat-treated Steel Plates market in 2021, owing to its economical price, easy availability, and its wider applications in areas of manufacturing and construction industries. In Carbon steel, the hardness depends on its carbon content: up to 0.80% carbon, the ability to harden increases alongside the carbon content. Beyond 0.80%, the wear resistance can be increased due to hard cementite forming, but the hardness can’t be increased. When alloys is added to the steel to increase its hardness, the carbon’s ability to harden and strengthen also increases. That means that the carbon content needed to supply the very best level of hardness is lower in alloyed steels versus plain carbon steels. Due to which, alloy steels typically offer better performance than the plain carbon steels. When carbon steel is hardened, the steel is required to be cooled under 1000°F in less than one second. But, once alloys is added to the steel and increase the effectiveness of the carbon, that the time limit also increases beyond one second. That allows us to pick a slower quenching medium to get the required hardness. Hence due to these advantages of the alloy steel, it is expected to overtake the carbon steel’s market share during the forecast period. Also, the increasing demand for high-end and heat-resistant goods within the automotive and aerospace sectors will further boost the segment’s growth during the forecast period.

    Heat-treated Steel Plates Market Segment Analysis – By Heat Treatment Processes

    The Precipitation-Hardening segment held the largest share of 33% in the Heat-treated Steel Plates market in 2021. Precipitation-hardening is a heat treatment process that involves two periods of re-heating and cooling the steel plate. Firstly, the plate is heated to a high temperature between 1,000 and 1,300 degrees – then it is rapidly cooled. Once the plate is cooled, it undergoes a process known as the age hardening, where the plate is reheated again at a lower, below-critical temperature and then rapidly cooled again. Precipitation hardening increases the strength of plate and also increase toughness. The high strength and machinability of precipitation-hardened plate makes it commonly utilized in applications requiring the power to bear the high stress, like jack-up rigs, construction equipment, rail cars, truck frames, piping components and shipbuilding. Rising application scope of this process in steel plates market is additionally expected to drive its demand over the projected period.
