The Global High-Speed Steel Market is projected to reach USD 5.66 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. High-speed steels (HSS) are high-performance steels having a high hardness at temperatures up to 500°C and high wear resistance due to the addition of alloys such as tungsten and molybdenum. They are commonly used in cutting tool materials, as they are resistant to abrasion and can perform under high temperatures and speeds without losing hardness. This allows them to cut faster and hence, the name high-speed steels.

High Speed Steel Market

High-speed steel is widely used for metal cutting and wood turning due to its properties such as wear resistance, high work hardness, and absorption of shocks, which make them durable and precise. However, the demand from the metal cutting applications has reduced due to the use of composites instead of metal parts across many industries.

Global High Speed Steel Market

The highest demand for high-speed steel is from the automotive industry due to the vast number of cutting operation involved in the production of automobiles. Furthermore, many of these processes require precision at high speeds, which are provided by HSS.The Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period due to the continuous shift of global production activities. Moreover, the automobile industry in the Asia Pacific region is growing due to an increase in the sales of passenger cars in this region. A key factor restraining market growth is the increasing use of carbide tools for cutting operations, which enables efficient operations at higher speeds than HSS cutting tools.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Functions at high speed and temperatures without losing hardness
  • Growth of the automotive industry
  • Increasing manufacturing in the Asia Pacific region due to industrialization
  • Use of carbide tools

Key Developments:

  • In November 2018, Sandvik AB (Sweden) acquired Dura-Mill (US) and OSK (China) to increase its capacity to provide precision tools. This acquisition was mainly for its carbide tools portfolio. However, this will also increase its HSS tool production capacity.
