The global shape memory alloys market size is projected to grow from USD 11.0 billion in 2021 to USD 18.8 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 11.2% from 2021 and 2026. The growth in the market is highly attributed to the increasing demand for SMAs in the manufacturing of biomedical devices & surgical instruments, aircraft components and automotive actuators, and consumer electronics. North America is the largest market for SMAs, owing to huge demand from biomedical device manufacturing. The growth in the market is also attributed to the increasing demand for high-quality life-saving medical devices and better automotive & aircraft components. The physical properties of SMAs are encouraging their use in various end-use industries. However, the high cost of implantable devices, which is the largest application of SMAs in the biomedical industry, is the major challenge for the growth of the SMAs market.

Nitinol type segment estimated to lead the shape memory alloys market in 2020
By type, the Nitinol segment accounted for the largest share in the overall shape memory alloys market.Nitinol alloys are the largest type of SMAs, accounting for a major share of the market.

The significantly growing biomedical end-use industry, especially for medical implants, is driving the demand for nitinol SMAs.These alloys are used in the form of wires, sheets, ribbons, and rods.

Other types of SMAs include gold, cadmium, iron, zinc, and platinum-based alloys.

Biomedical end-use segment is estimated to be the largest segment of shape memory alloys
Biomedical is the largest end-use industry of SMAs, followed by aerospace & defense.The applications of SMAs in the automotive industry will increase as the EV market is gaining traction.

SMAS are widely used in dentistry applications for the manufacturing of orthodontic wires due to their shape memory properties, super-elasticity, high ductility, and resistance to corrosion.However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, and because of social distancing, only essential services were left open.

Oral dental professionals were significantly affected due to the mass closure of dental offices.The pandemic has had a continuing effect on orthodontic treatment, which is a long process that requires regular visits.

Thus, the demand for SMAs in dentistry applications declined in 2020.
