The iron powder market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 5.2 % over the course of the forecast period, from US$ 6183.49 million in 2022 to US$ 10265.75 million in 2032. Iron powder is a particle form of iron with a particle size, varying from 20-200 μm. In industry, Iron powder are produced through solid reduced, atomized and electrolytic process.

However, the selection of the manufacturing process is depend upon particle size and uniformity in the production process. Moreover, Iron powder is also referred as zero valent iron (ZVI) powders. Iron powder finds usage in several industrial applications such as automotive, food, packaging, and coating, among others.

For instance, in food industry, the Iron powder is used to maintain the nutritional value of the food i.e. for food fortification which help to evade iron deficiency.

Also, Iron powder as an additive mainly used in paint & coating industry to impart properties such as luster and shine, among others. Moreover, demand for iron powder is prevalent in 3D- Printing technology application which is expected to gain significant traction in the healthcare and automotive sector.

Major application of iron powder is in automotive industry for manufacturing of automotive parts, friction materials for breaks pads, break lining to name a few. Iron powder is also an important part of food packaging industry for water purification, manufacturing of ferrous and Ferric salts, among others.
