The Global Laboratory Induction Melting Furnaces Market Size is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately around 5.7% during the forecast period of 2023-2031.
The growth of the market is driven by the increasing demand for laboratory induction melting furnaces in the research and development sector, the rising demand for high-purity metals in the electronics and semiconductor industries, and the growing popularity of induction melting furnaces in the jewelry industry.
Laboratory furnaces are heating devices that are commonly used in industrial laboratories for different applications such as sterilizing, annealing, polymer treatment, evaporation, and solvent removal. Advancements in the features of laboratory furnaces are expected to boost the market across multiple industries. Increasing demand for laboratories in various industries such as oil & gas, chemical, and pharma is set to create high demand in the laboratory furnaces market during the forecast period.
Certain sectors require metal inspection, analysis, and testing in order to guarantee the dependability and safety of their products. Businesses frequently rely on the findings of metal tests to determine the compatibility of materials and the quality of components, as well as to provide information on manufacturing, product failure, and questions concerning material selection. Customers rely upon Laboratory Testing Inc.'s Metal Testing and Metal Analysis services to deliver the test outcomes. The presence of high amount of one or more hazardous metals can be determined using a heavy metals panel.
A number of out-of-furnace steel processing techniques have been developed recently, making it feasible to do away with some of the drawbacks of induction melting. One of them is the addition of rare earth metals (REM) to the steel in the bucket. Along with REM, further modifications to the steel in the ladle can enable further advancements in steel quality. REM is currently utilized extensively in the manufacture of steel due to its strong affinity for oxygen, sulfur, nitrogen, non-fe rrous metals, and other contaminants. Studies have been conducted to enhance the mechanical qualities of out-of-furnace steel processing technologies. The impact strength and contamination index of cold-resistant steel with non-metallic inclusions are affected by alkaline earth and rare earth master alloys.
The Laboratory Induction Furnace Market is vulnerable to a lot of influences from the geopolitical sphere. For example, trade conflicts and sanctions can disrupt the supply chain for laboratory induction furnaces, resulting in higher pricing and shortages. Political unrest in countries where laboratory induction furnaces are made can cause supply chain disruptions and financial losses.
In 2022, the Russian invasion of Ukraine disrupted the global supply chain for laboratory induction furnaces. This was because Russia and Ukraine are major producers of the raw materials used to make these furnaces.
The global economy was hit hard by the turmoil generated by Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent economic sanctions and probable reprisal by Russia. Some developing economies are facing a crisis for Russian-produced metals, which are essential to the supply chains of contemporary manufacturing production, and have also been hit by uncertainty. Raw materials such as aluminum, nickel, palladium, and vanadium are included. The metal industry in the European region relies heavily on these regions for the raw material to be used in certain industries and, subsequently, for testing before being utilized.
A fluctuation in raw material prices due to geopolitical factors affects the cost structure and hence the revenue and profit of the industry. Hence, Laboratory Induction Furnace Market participants should monitor these trends and change their strategies accordingly.
