Aluminum Powders, Pastes, and Flakes Market 2015-2019
About aluminum powder, flakes, and paste
Aluminum powder is a fine granular powder usually spherical or spindle in shape. It is widely produced by the atomization of pure molten aluminum metal that is converted into fine droplets, solidified, collected and used for various applications. Aluminum flakes are derived from aluminum powder by dry ball milling process, typically in irregular shapes under microscopic examination. Aluminum paste is made from aluminum powder by wet ball milling process using solvents (or by mixing a milled flake powder) such as isopropyl alcohol, ethyl acetate, and xylene.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global aluminum powder, flakes, and paste market to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Aluminum foam has a highly porous cellular structure characterized by a large volume of gas-filled pores. It is used in heat exchangers to increase the transfer of heat. Powder metallurgy is another emerging application for aluminum powder as it reduces the yield loss in the aluminum. It is extensively used in the manufacturing process, which eliminates the need to remove the extra metal. It also helps in lowering the cost. Such emerging applications are expected to boost the demand for aluminum powder.”
According to the report, developing economy and rising per capita income has increased demand for various products such as consumer durables like automobiles, appliances, and consumer electronics, among others. In addition, we surmise that the present infrastructure is insufficient to support the growing population in different countries, and this will increase building and construction activities. These factors contribute to the demand for aluminum powder, flakes, and paste.
Further, the report states that LME prices are highly fluctuating. In July 2008, aluminum prices were $3,067. Post-recession, the prices of aluminum declined due to a demand-supply gap. After the recovery, during July 2010 to October 2010, prices increased owing to a fillip in the global economic conditions. As of 2015, the prices are declining. Hence, the LME fluctuation factor plays a major role in production volumes and profit margins of vendors.
