Isostatic pressing Market Drivers
Growing adoption of Isostatic Pressing in Aerospace and Defense Industries
Growth of aerospace and defense industries is positively impacting the adoption of advanced isostatic pressing method. Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) technology is used in developing stainless steel and nickel base superalloy using powder metallurgy which are used in the aerospace and defense industry for missile and space vehicle applications. HIP technology is also used to manufacture commercial aircraft. Aircraft parts and engines need to be high in density and low in weight to ensure great operational performance. HIP is deployed during the processing of these parts to develop a larger and more diverse set of aircraft and engine parts. Thus, HIP technology is expected to witness increasing application in aerospace and defense industry to enhance the material capabilities and process efficiency in the near future. In 2017, Arconic and Airbus collaborated to develop advanced metal 3D printing technology for aircraft manufacturing as well as customization in processes, to produce and qualify large, structural 3D printed components, such as pylon spars and rib structures. Hence these factors are analyzed to drive the market growth in the forecast period 2021-2026.
Increasing demand for combining HIP with other heat treatment processes
Conventional practice often has the HIP and heat treat processes performed at different facilities, thus, the parts must be loaded and unloaded into process vessels twice and shipped from one facility to another, and hence this consumes more time and power. However, the combination of HIP and other heat treatment processes in a single and integrated unit benefits by reducing energy consumption and improving the delivery time of components. Moreover, processes such as HIP, additive manufacturing, and spark plasma sintering can be used as a single unit to create high-integrity, near-net-shape parts from metal powder, while decrease processing costs and energy consumption. Hence these factors drive the market growth in the forecast period 2021-2026.

Isostatic pressing Market Challenges
High Initial Cost of the Isostatic Press
High initial cost for the installation of isostatic press hampers the market growth in the forecast period. The designing and development of isostatic presses, which are used for densification, casting, and manufacturing of various materials and components, are expensive processes. In addition, the HIP processing needs inert gas as the pressurizing medium to apply equal force for the densification or casting part. Apart from these major components, HIP units have diaphragm compressors, non-lubricated piston compressors, etc., as the essential parts for processing. These components increase the total operating cost of a system. Moreover, the installation of these systems needs trained personnel to have a thorough knowledge of the systems, which adds to the implementation cost as well. Therefore, the cost of designing and development along with the cost of installation leads to a high initiation cost.
Product launches, acquisitions, expansions, partnerships and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Isostatic pressing market. In 2019, the market of Isostatic pressing industry outlook has been fragmented by several companies.
