ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS announces the availability of a comprehensive global report on Superconductors market. Global market for Superconductors is projected to exceed US$8.8 billion by 2020, driven by its extensive usage in MRI, electronics, science and R&D areas for developing environment-friendly and energy efficient solutions.
As a metallic alloy capable of allowing electrical current to flow through with zero loss of energy, superconductors represent an important electrical energy concept with utmost significance in the modern world. Superconductivity technology has been playing a vital role in the process of scientific research for applications in various commercial sectors. Superconducting materials are currently being widely used in MRI & Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), electronics, science and R&D areas for developing environment-friendly, and energy efficient solutions. However, the industry is presently focusing on developing new materials and designing new systems for expanding application possibilities for superconductors.
Low Temperature Superconductors (LTS) are the original form of superconductors that generally refer to Niobium-based alloy superconductors. These superconductors hold significant position in the global markets for various applications. Low Temperature Superconductors are also referred to as Technical Superconductors due to their applicability in engineering tasks. High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) offer ultra-low resistance instead of zero resistance. Superconductors market is poised to witness increased demand in the manufacture of electric power equipment such as generators, transformers, motors, fault current limiters (FCLs), energy storage and power cabling. HTS, in this regard, is poised to score the maximum gains, given its ability to enable the development of fault-tolerant transmission solutions.
MRI represents the most dominant end-use sector for the global superconductors market. In MRI equipment, superconducting magnets have been replacing copper magnets, because of the need for a strong magnetic field as well as stable image quality. Superconductor usage in MRI equipment] is expected to witness healthy growth, largely driven by the advancements in MRI technology and usage of MRI in newer applications such as identification of multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease, among others. There is high demand for superconducting wire in accelerators, where they are utilized in magnets for bending and focusing the particle beam and in detectors for separating the collision fragments. The use of superconductors in computers has the potential of substantially improving the performance, capacity, and speed of electronic devices and computers for household devices as well as supercomputers. Additional applications of superconductors include synchronous condensers, particle beam therapy, magnetic billet heaters, HTS filters for cellular communications systems, airborne generators, directed energy weapons and degaussing cables.
