Shape Memory Alloys Market Survey 2021-2030: Strategic Decision Making & Key Player Identification

Shape Memory Alloys Market Survey

Rise in demand from biomedical sector and surge in demand from the automotive industry have boosted the growth of the global shape memory alloys market.

NEW CASTLE, DELAWARE, UNITED STATES, October 11, 2023 / — The Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs) industry is a niche but rapidly growing sector within the materials science and engineering field. SMAs are a class of materials that have the unique ability to “remember” a specific shape and return to that shape when subjected to certain external stimuli, typically changes in temperature. This property makes them useful in a wide range of applications across various industries.

As per the report, the global shape memory alloys industry was pegged at $9.2 billion in 2020, and is expected to reach $19.5 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2021 to 2030.

The key property of SMAs is their ability to undergo a reversible phase transformation, which allows them to change shape in response to temperature changes. This property can be utilized in a variety of ways.

Rise in demand from biomedical sector and surge in demand from the automotive industry have boosted the growth of the global shape memory alloys market. However, fluctuation in raw material cost hinders the market growth. On the contrary, rise in demand from the electronics industry is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market players in the future.


– Biomedical: One of the most well-known applications of SMAs is in the biomedical field, particularly in minimally invasive surgery, stents, and orthodontic devices. SMA stents, for example, can be inserted in a collapsed form and then expanded to the desired shape once inside the body.
– Aerospace: SMAs are used in aerospace applications, such as actuators and deployable structures. They offer lightweight, compact, and reliable solutions for various mechanical systems.
– Automotive: They are used in automotive safety systems, such as airbag deployment mechanisms and anti-lock brake systems (ABS).
– Consumer Electronics: SMAs can be found in small devices like eyeglass frames that adjust to fit the wearer’s face.

The nitinol segment held the largest share in 2020, accounting for nearly two-fifths of the global shape memory alloys market, as it is biocompatible metal with qualities that make it appropriate for use in orthopedic implants. However, the copper-based segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period, owing to its ability to return to pre-deformed shape after heating above the transformation temperature.

๐Œ๐š๐ซ๐ค๐ž๐ญ ๐†๐ซ๐จ๐ฐ๐ญ๐ก: The SMA market has been experiencing significant growth, driven by the increasing adoption of these materials in various industries. As technology advances and more applications are discovered, the market is expected to continue growing.

๐‚๐ก๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ž๐ง๐ ๐ž๐ฌ:

– Cost: The production of high-quality SMAs can be expensive, which can limit their adoption in cost-sensitive applications.
– Performance: The performance of SMAs can be influenced by factors like fatigue, creep, and hysteresis, which may limit their use in some applications.
– Material Variability: SMAs can exhibit variability in their properties, which can make it challenging to achieve precise results in some applications.

The aerospace & defense segment would showcase the highest CAGR of 9.1% from 2021 to 2030, due to use of shape memory alloys in various exterior components to improve efficiency of aircraft. However, the biomedical segment held the largest share in 2020, contributing to around one-third of the global shape memory alloys market, owing to the exceptional biocompatibility and computer tomography compatibility of the shape memory alloys for use in medical devices.
