DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/w5qz8c/global_brazing) has announced the addition of the "Global Brazing Materials Market Report, 2016" report to their offering.
One of the important factors in the global brazing market is the increasing demand for aluminum brazing alloys from the Automotive industry. Aluminum brazing alloys are used in the brazing of automotive heat exchangers; thus, with an increase in the demand for automobiles, there has been a consequent increase in the demand for brazing applications.
Active brazing materials or metals are used in joining ceramics, which cannot be brazed by conventional brazing alloys due to their poor wetting qualities. Wetting is a phenomenon wherein the liquid brazing alloy spreads evenly on the base metal. Since ceramics exhibit poor wetting behavior active brazing metals are used for joining them. Active brazing metals are formed through the addition of a brazing alloy such as titanium to the conventional brazing metal alloy, thereby enhancing its wetting behavior and aiding the joining of ceramics. Active brazing metals are also used in the brazing of materials with different combinations of ceramics, graphite, metals, diamond, and carbon. Thus, the Global Brazing Materials market is witnessing an increasing use of active brazing materials.
Further, the report states that one of the challenges is the increase in raw material prices. For instance, an increase in the prices of silver and copper has led to the increased cost of manufacturing silver and copper-based alloys. This raises the cost of the entire brazing process for customers. Thus, manufacturers are looking toward developing cost-effective brazing alloys, in addition to devising new, efficient ways for brazing alloy applications.
