Global Titanium Sponge Market: Overview

Titanium is the ninth most abundant element in the earth’s crust. Titanium metal exhibits low density and high strength. It is also available as powder or sponge. Titanium sponge is a porous brittle form of titanium. It exhibits high ductility, with high strength-to-weight ratio. Furthermore, it exhibits low thermal and electrical conductivity and is one of the most corrosion-resistant structural metals. Titanium sponge is obtained by the application of the Kroll process on raw titanium ore. The resulting titanium sponge obtained has several impurities. These impurities generally are hydrogen, nitrogen, chlorine, oxygen, silicon, iron magnesium, etc. Titanium sponge is used as a base for titanium alloys, billets, ingots, etc. This is one of the major applications of titanium sponge. Resistance to corrosion, fire, and shock; light weight; low cost of maintenance; biocompatibility; and recyclability are among the several characteristics of titanium sponge. China, Japan, Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine contribute significantly to the global production of titanium sponge. China is the major producer and exporter of titanium sponge. The list of major importers of titanium sponge from China includes the U.S., Europe, and South Korea. The titanium sponge market in Europe relies on imports from China. The U.S. has a few manufacturers of titanium sponge; however, of late, the country’s dependence on exports from China has increased. Titanium sponge is typically used in liquid propellant tanks for launch vehicles, inter tank structures, gas bottle/liners, and interface rings for satellites in the aerospace and defense industries. Titanium sponge is a major material in the production and fabrication process of several components and parts in the aerospace and defense industry. Therefore, several countries are planning to have their own production of titanium sponge in the country for usage in defense applications. The global titanium sponge market for aerospace and defense is anticipated to expand at a steady pace during the forecast period.
