Impact Sockets Market: Recent Industry Developments And Growth Strategies Adopte

Posted by surendra choudhary on May 10th, 2019

Impact Sockets Market – Overview

Impact socket is a mechanical device used in coordination with powered impact wrenches or drivers. Combination of these provides enough torque to the head of the fasteners. Impact wrench stores kinetic energy in a rotating hammer that is connected to the impact socket. As the kinetic energy is released, the impact socket tends to move clockwise or anti clockwise which results in the loosening or tightening of a nut bolt. Impact sockets are generally used by mechanics in garages to remove the nuts and bolts of vehicles. These are also used by racing teams to quickly tighten or loosen nut bolts while replacing the tires of vehicles. Unlike regular sockets, impact sockets are generally black in color owing to black oxide coating on it. Black oxide coating is done to prevent corrosion, as chrome plating applied on ordinary impact sockets chips and flakes off due to continuous vibration caused by powered impact driver.

Impact Sockets Market – Drivers and Restraints

The global impact sockets market is expected to witness steady growth in the near future. Boom in industries such as construction, manufacturing, etc. worldwide is anticipated to increase the demand for impact sockets. Impact sockets are widely utilized in the construction and manufacturing industries to loosen or tighten nuts and bolts with an impact compared to ordinary sockets that need to be rotated manually until the nuts and bolts are tightened or loosened. Additionally, unlike ordinary sockets, impact sockets are made of chrome molybdenum and coated with black oxide that helps in restraining itself from shattering due to the vibrations caused, thereby ensuring fewer chances of injury. This adds a greater advantage to impact sockets, thereby resulting in boosting the demand for the product. Furthermore, impact sockets can be used as impact and powered turning tools as well as manual ones, which is another advantage of the product. However, impact sockets are expensive than ordinary ones, that restraints the growth of the impact sockets market. Government initiatives in providing subsidy to the impact socket manufactures as well as technology transfer from renowned companies can be opportunities for the growth of impact sockets market.
