Nickel alloys are the mixture of nickel and other metals or elements. Nickel alloys with iron, copper, chromium, lead, aluminum, silver, gold, cobalt, and other elements are used to produce cast iron, stainless steel, Incoloy, Inconel, Monel, and other alloys. Nickel alloys have several properties such as heat resistance, electric resistance, toughness, strength at low and high temperature, corrosion resistance, and special electronic and magnetic properties. Due to these properties, they are used in batteries, coatings, mobile phones, kitchenware, mobile phones, jewelry, medical equipment, buildings, transport, and power generation. They are used in automotive industry for motors, generators, heating elements, turbochargers, gears, exhaust valve, brake fluid lines, cylinder liners, pistons, wiper, mufflers, catalyst, and clamps. They are widely used in aircraft for manufacturing exhaust systems, blades, hydraulic pumps, and other components. Nickel alloys are also used in power generation turbines, marine fasteners, and electronics. Therefore, Mentioned uses of nickel alloys in various industries are the drivers for the growth of nickel alloy market. The increasing cost of raw materials is the major restraint for nickel alloy market.
