Shape Memory Alloy (SMAs)- Shaping technology for the future

1098 Days ago

NEW YORK, May 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The demand for Shape Memory Alloy market is projected to reach 20.1 billion USD by 2025, actuating at an estimated CAGR of 10.2% from 2019 to 2025. Shape memory alloys (SMAs) are a unique class of smart multifunctional material. Ability to change shape and other special properties make them material of choice for actuation systems across various industries including aerospace, biomedical, construction, automotive applications, amongst others. Owing to properties such as shape memory effect and pseudoelasticity, the material has gained much importance in diverse field of engineering. Adoption rate of shape memory alloys in medical application have experienced high over the past few years. The growing usage of alloys such as nitinol, in manufacturing of better improved stents, bone plates, catheters, and various other medical procedures have driven the demand for SMA and have open pool of opportunity across the entire value chain. SMA is playing a crucial role in shaping medical technology and holds promising future of medical material.

Shape Memory Alloy : Adding smart wings to aircrafts

SMAs as actuators have high potential applications in aircraft and space due to lighter weight, thus making them more energy efficient as compared to bulky mechanical actuators. In the light of recent advancement, NASA demonstrated a nickel-titanium SMA actuator used in folding the outer portions of wings during flight. The SMA based actuator helps in changing the plane angle easily in accordance to wind direction, reducing energy use during maneuvering. Among many alternatives, SMA is promised to be most suitable alternate for hydraulic systems. Smart wings incorporating shape memory alloys, requires less component for movement without compromising even at subsonic and supersonic speeds. The NASA project Spanwise Adaptive Wing (SAW) aims at exploring these smart materials further, and consider it to be a key aeronautical technology for the aircraft of tomorrow. These developments tend to have positive impact on the overall growth of Shape memory alloy market.
