Precipitation Hardening Market to Register Highest CAGR of 8% through 2032

During the projected period of 2022 to 2032, the precipitation hardening market is anticipated to exhibit significant growth prospects with a CAGR of 8%.

Precipitation hardening is a heat treatment process, which is used to increase the yield strength of various alloys and non-ferrous materials. It is also known as age hardening process. The precipitation hardening process is one of the common process used in material processing and manufacturing industries owing to its various advantages such as, it provides relatively low distortion during heat treatment compares to other heat treatment processes, it increases tensile and yield strength of materials, for super-alloys it is known to cause yield strength anomaly, which can offer exceptional high temperature strength for materials.

Furthermore, the precipitation hardening process subjugated of three stages, solution treatment, quenching and ageing. In solution treatment an object is heated for a time ranging from 1 to 20 hours slightly before the eutectic point with a solution for dissolving of the material. After that the solution soaked metal has been quickly cool down to a room temperature. In the final stage the metal is again heated to a medium temperature and cooled quickly to enhance its properties.

Additionally, the precipitation hardening process is used for a range alloys and non-ferrous materials such as, stainless steel, aluminum, magnesium, nickel, titanium etc. It is used for hardening of various products including, processing equipment, engine parts, gate valves, shafts, plungers, gears, balls and bushings, valve stems, turbine blades, molding dies etc.
