High Speed Steel Market is Anticipated to Cross US$ 5.2 Billion at 6.7% CAGR by 2033: Fact.MR Analysis


The increasing demand for high speed steel in 3D printing or additive manufacturing applications is a key driver shaping the high speed steel market growth

Rockville, Nov. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As per Fact.MR, a provider of market research and competitive intelligence, the global High Speed Steel Market is projected to reach a US value of $5.2 Bn by the end of 2033, while rising at a CAGR of 6.7%.

High speed steel (HSS) is a type of tool steel prized for its exceptional hardness, wear resistance, and heat resistance, making it ideal for cutting tools and machining in high speed operations. Composed of alloying elements like tungsten and chromium, HSS maintains sharp edges even at high temperatures, ensuring effective cutting and longevity. Its superior wear resistance and toughness reduce the risk of chipping during operations. HSS is versatile, suitable for various machining processes, and can be easily sharpened, contributing to its cost-effectiveness over time.
