Metal Powder Market - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2020 to 2027

Metal Powder Market: Summary

The Global Metal Powder Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 5.8 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 6.2%.

The metal powder is a finely powdered form of solid metal that usually contains smaller particles with a maximum dimension of approximately1000 µm. These particles are the smallest unit of powder. Most metal powders contain particles that range from 25 to 200 µm in size. Generally, these powders are purely metallic, while in some cases they are mixed with other forms, such as ceramics or polymers. The metal powder is an intermediate between liquid and solid metal.
