Shape memory alloys are often defined as alloys that return to their original shape when deformed. These alloys are lightweight and provide alternatives to traditional actuators such as pneumatic, hydraulic, and motor-based systems. These alloys were first discovered in 1951 and published after the discovery of the nickel-titanium alloy in 1963. The nickel-titanium or nitinol alloy is the most successful of all shape memory alloys. Other shape memory alloys include copper-magnesium, iron-manganese-silicon, and copper-aluminum-nickel alloys. Shape memory alloys have two stable phases: the high-temperature phase called austenite and therefore the low-temperature phase called martensite. The first is symmetrical while the second is less symmetrical. The phase change takes place mechanically or thermally.
The Shape Memory Alloy Market is segmented by Type into Nitinol Alloys, Copper-based Alloys, Iron-Manganese-Silicon Alloys, Others. The Nitinol Alloys segment is anticipated to dominate the Global Shape Memory Alloy Market during the forecast period. The increasing use of Nitinol in the biomedical segment is significantly driving the Shape Memory Alloy Market growth. Nitinol is used in a variety of implantable medical devices due to its super-elasticity and biocompatibility. The global medical devices market is growing strongly because of improving economic conditions especially in developed countries, which will increase sales of Nitinol Alloys.
