The Global Electrical Steel Non-Grain Oriented (NOES) Market Size is expected to reach USD 26.13 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.
Electrical steel is a type of steel that is used in the cores of electromagnetic equipment including motors, generators, and transformers to prevent power loss. Since Si is the primary added element, electrical steel is also known as silicon steel. Among all soft magnetic materials, electrical steels are the most widely utilized (almost 90% by volume). Silicon-iron electrical steel in the shape of fine laminations is the most common soft magnetic material used by electrical machinery.
Non-oriented (NO) electrical steel and grain-oriented (GO) electrical steel are the two forms of electrical steel. NO steel is commonly used in rotating electrical equipment, such as motors and generators, where the magnetization orientation is changed in the sheet plane. GO steel is primarily utilized as a core material for unidirectional magnetized static equipment such as transformers. Because of the varied flux directions, oriented steels have the least core loss and are utilized in transformers, whereas non-oriented steel is employed in electrical equipment. NOES is a direct material input utilized in the production of electric motors for both hybrid and electric automobiles.
COVID-19 Impact Electrical Steel Non-grain oriented (NOES) Market
The government limitations associated with the COVID-19 outbreak that led the steel industry to cease had a substantial influence on the market. Governments have also issued new restrictions for COVID-19 affected manufacturing facilities. As a result, mining operations decreased, leading to additional disruptions in steel production, affecting end-use industries. Also, supply chain interruptions in the steel industry hampered the production of electrical steel for non-grain-oriented applications. Also, to prevent the virus from spreading, electrical steel companies chose to reduce productivity or discontinued manufacturing operations. As a result, all of these variables disrupted the supply and demand for such electrical steel.
Increasing demand for drive systems, high-frequency converters, and high-speed electric drivetrains from hybrid electric vehicles, in addition to an increasing demand for Non-Oriented Electrical Steel, is likely to boost market expansion. Given its homogenous structural and magnetic properties in all directions, non-oriented electric steel is extensively used as ferrous alloying elements in rotating machinery that includes miniature precision electric motors to large power generators. Non-grain oriented steel is an important magnetic and structural material that is used worldwide because it has a higher magnetic flux, is more efficient, and has superior punching strength and durability. As a result, it is well-suited to the production of electrical devices such as power production motors, propellers, and electrical equipment.
Furthermore, non-oriented grain electrical steel has several features over grain-oriented steel, including improved punch capability and acting as a lubricant during stamping, making it suitable for massive rotating equipment such as AC alternators and independent power producers. They're also present in power generation iron cores, tiny power transformers, ac motors, and other home devices. The market value of non-oriented electrical steel has profited from all of its properties, including such light core weight and excellent permeability of the material, and its use in other industries and products. As a result, these sectors strong demand for non-grain oriented electrical is propelling market expansion.
The availability of alternatives, which include grain-oriented electrical steel, is limiting the growth of the non-oriented electrical steel market. Moreover, price fluctuations in steel raw commodities like coal, scrap, and iron steel are projected to hamper the growth of the market. This is because raw material prices are extremely unstable and fluctuate as per demand and supply factors. Steel prices are also influenced by production costs, the cost of crude oil, and storage capabilities. As a result, these issues are projected to impede the growth of the non-grain oriented electrical steel market.
Thickness Type Insights
The 0.5 mm segment accounted the largest market share over the forecast period.
On the basis of thickness, the global electrical steel non-grain oriented market is segmented into 0.35 mm, 0.5 mm, 0.65 mm, and others. Among these, the 0.5 mm is dominating the market and is going to continue its dominance over the forecast period. This thickness type offers the best performance in terms of magnetic characteristics and weight of electrical devices made with this sheet size. Heavy-duty electrical equipment, such as large power generators and transformers, often utilizes thicker non-grain oriented electrical sheets with thicknesses ranging from 0.5 mm and higher. The efficiency of the material is the most important concern in such devices, with weight and space taken up by electrical equipment being a less significant impediment.
The semi-processed segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
On the basis of type, the global electrical steel non-grain oriented market is segmented into semi-processed and fully processed. Among these, the semi-processed segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 56% over the forecast period. Non-oriented semi-processed grades are advantageous for tiny rotors, Stators, and power generation equipment. Semi-processed non-oriented electrical steel is extensively utilized and accounts for a sizable market share. The semi-processed version must be heat treated at the optimal temperature to create the correct microstructure. The temperature of steel might vary depending on its final application. The semi-processed type's strong customizable capability contributes to its widespread alternative among electrical device producers, who employ it to build stators and rotors for electric motors. The semi-processed category leads the market due to all of these factors.
Application Type Insights
The power generation accounted the largest revenue share of more than 57% over the forecast period.
On the basis of application, the global electrical steel non-grain oriented market is segmented into household appliances, AC motors, power generation, and others. Among these, the power generation is dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 57% over the forecast period. The non-grain oriented electrical steel material is primarily used in power transformers, small transformers, and distribution transformers and is available in coiled, punched sheets, and laminated forms. Because of its low friction losses, high permeability, and high resistance, it is employed in electrical transformer cores and other electrical equipment. The segment's expansion is being driven by increased demand for transformers as a result of high energy usage.
