Global Nano Crystalline Soft Magnetic Materials Market Scenario Highlighting

Posted by Arslan on January 29th, 2019

The radical role of nano-crystalline soft magnetic materials in several electrical and electronic systems, which has characterized the modern society. Continuous improvements in the properties of these materials have extended their application scope into power generation & transmission, receptors of microwaves & radio signals, electromagnets and magnetic shielding. The nano-crystalline soft magnetic materials are relatively new concept, with the paradigm of increased emphasis on energy conservation accelerating research efforts.

Leading players in the market are expanding their production capacity to cater growing demand for soft magnetic materials with high-performance characteristics. Hitachi, the pioneer of nano-crystalline soft magnetic materials, in 2017, announced its plan of tripling its production capacity of Finemet nano-crystalline soft magnetic material. The company aims at completion of boosting its production capacity by 2018-end. A new Fact.MR study has envisaged the nano-crystalline soft magnetic materials market to reflect a splendid 10.1% value CAGR in the period of forecast, 2018 to 2028.

Nano-Crystalline Soft Magnetic Materials Complement Development of Next-Gen Noise Suppression Solutions

Innovative soft magnetic materials have become the new normal in electrical engineering, thereby leading to advanced component developments. Toroidal tape-wound cores produced by using nano-crystalline soft magnetic materials such as Vitroperm have been deemed highly effective for interference suppression in common-mode chokes (CMC). Vitroperm has established itself as universal solution for various EMC problems via its incorporation of affordable alloy constituents and large-scale production lines.

Leading industry stakeholders, such as SCHURTER, have expanded their range of existing compensated chokes with the high-current types for use in PCB mounting. The new DKIH series of SCHURTER incorporates a nano-crystalline core, which imparts higher inductance (8x) than the ferrite core versions when placed in similar compact dimension. Open designs are a key focus area among producers of chokes having nano-crystalline soft magnetic materials as their core, which in turn suppress electromagnetic interference (EMI) noise produced by power applications on PCB.
