Foundry additives are catalyst like chemical substance that can hasten any chemical reaction without any emission. They can also be reused due to its minimal contamination rate. These factors are likely to propel the demand for foundry additives in the coming years.

Also, silica moldings are increasingly being used  in the construction, electronics, medical, and automotive industries to reduce the thermal expansion. Hence, the use of foundry additives is expected to surge over the forecast period.

Apart from this, application of foundry additives lowers the demand for specialty sands, which, in turn, reduces the overall cost of the finalized product. Such benefits are anticipated to create prolific growth opportunities for the market.

Which are the Key Trends Fueling the Growth in Foundry Additives Market?

Application of metal cast components within the automotive, construction, medical, and heavy machineries industries is increasing. This is projected to surge the demand for foundry additives during the casting process, thereby driving the market.

In addition to this, as foundry additives has low contamination and emission rate, end users are increasing the adoption of these additives to adhere to reduce the carbon emission. This will further bolster the growth in the market.

Also, the stringent government regulations to adhere to environmental regulations is surging the demand for light weight vehicles with more power and low emission. In response to this, application of foundry additives in automotive industries is increasing, augmenting the sales in the market.

Moreover, advent of advanced technologies such as 3D printing in foundry industries will create lucrative prospects for the market. For instance, in 2020, Humtown Products was rewarded the  Manufacturer of the Year award by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) for its first-ever 3D sand additive.
