Carbide Tools Market By Carbide Type (Calcium Carbide, Silicon Carbide, Tungsten Carbide, Aluminum Carbide, Iron Carbide, Titanium Carbide), By Carbide Grade (Cast-Iron Grade Carbide, Steel Grade Carbide), By Application (Turning, Milling, Drilling, Other) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Landscape, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

Cemented carbide is a revolutionary hard material used extensively across several manufacturing industries as a cutting tool material. Carbide is a non-metallic material and hence are able to withstand high cutting temperature without deformation or breakage. Thus, carbide tool is capable of producing excellent surface finish at relatively faster machining speed compared to high-speed steel (HSS). Carbide tools are used to machine materials such as high-carbon steel or stainless steel. However, the tool is also used to machine variety of other material such as cast iron. Owing to versatility and other aforementioned merits, the demand for carbide tools is reaching new highs and hence boosting the market value of carbide tools market.

"Tungsten Carbide is the Most Used Carbide Tool and Tops the Chart with Considerable Market Share"

Carbide tools are available in a number of types depending upon the binder material added to the carbide composite. At present, Tungsten Carbide is the most favored carbide tools as these tools are highly resistive to abrasion and are capable of withstanding high machining temperatures. Other forms of carbide such as calcium carbide, aluminum carbide iron carbide, and silicon carbide also claim considerable share in overall market. However, growth of Titanium carbide expected to remain dominant because of the properties of titanium that is useful in making extremely hard material.
