Global Tool Steel Market to reach USD 6.29 billion at a CAGR of 6.64% from 2023 - 2032 (forecast period).

Market Overview

Global Tool Steel Market to reach USD 6.29 billion at a CAGR of 6.64% from 2023 - 2032 (forecast period).

Tool steel is a type of high-carbon and alloy steel that is specifically designed for the production of tools used in cutting, shaping, and forming materials. It possesses excellent hardness, wear resistance, toughness, and heat resistance, making it suitable for various industrial applications where tools need to withstand significant stress and wear.

Tool steel is a wide range of carbon and alloy steels that are well-suited to be converted into tools. Tool steels are well-known for their hardness, deformation, and abrasion resistance. The increased demand for tool steels for the manufacture of various cutting tools, such as tool bits, drills, taps, gear cutters, saw blades, planers, jointer blades, milling cutters, router bits, punches, and dies, is one of the key growth factors of the tool steel market. Tool steel has several advantages, including strong wear resistance, good thermal conductivity and hardenability, cost-effective machinability, and excellent polishing and acid-treatment properties. These features make tool steel appropriate for application in a variety of end-use sectors such as automotive, mechanical and plant engineering, power generation, aviation, food and packaging industries, structural and civil engineering, and mining, consequently boosting market expansion.

Regional Analysis

APAC to Lead the Global Market

The Asia Pacific has the largest tool steel market, followed by Europe and North America. In 2016, Asia Pacific dominated the global tool steel market, accounting for 62.5% of the total, followed by Europe and North America. The largest markets for tool steel are China, Japan, India, and the United States, which have generated enormous revenue from the global market. The automobile sector is the primary driver of the tool steel market. As a result, changes in the automobile industry's demand have a direct impact on the market. The entire volume of four-wheeler production worldwide in 2015 was about 90 million units, and it is predicted to increase further, reaching more than 100 million units by 2020.

 

Europe to Follow APAC

The size of the European tool steel market, led by Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and Spain, is expected to approach USD 1.4 billion in the forecast timeframe. Due to its ability to keep high hardness and strength even at high temperatures, these countries are seeing an increase in product demand for cutting instrument manufacture. Due to their high cutting speed, high-speed products are widely used in the manufacture of a variety of tools such as knives, saws, razors, chisels, and files, which should further increase product demand.

 

North America to Capture the Third Spot in the Global Market

North America is the third-largest market for tool steel, with a CAGR of 4.57% expected throughout the projection period. North America is a producer of both steel and tool steel, producing 50 to 60 million tons per year. The United States dominates the North American tool steel market. In 2016, the United States produced over 50 million tons of tool steel, followed by Canada. The key driving factors have been rising industrialization and the expansion of the automotive industry. Furthermore, rising steel output will boost the North American tool steel industry.
