Market Analysis and Insights
Brazing fillers for joining applications are essential for manufacturing and designing advanced materials. Several types of brazing fillers have been developed in recent decades to join similar or different engineering materials. Important parts of automotive and aircraft components, including steel, are often joined by brazing. In addition, ceramic components in microwave devices and circuits have been joined with a high level of integration in microelectronic devices.
Similarly, in the medical field, metallic implants have been brazed to ceramic dental crowns. These advances have made human life more convenient. However, in brazing, there are certain issues with intermetallic compound (IMC) formation and residual stresses in joints at high temperatures.
Increasing use of braze alloys coupled with growing application of braze alloys in different end industry like aerospace, buildings and electronics has surged its demand. Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the braze alloys market will grow at a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2029.

Europe Braze Alloys Market Dynamics
- Increase in usage of braze alloys in the automotive and aviation industry
Braze alloys are witnessing significant demand from the automotive industry, where they are used as condenser and evaporator connections for air-conditioning systems, fuel injection pipes, and brake linings. The automotive and aviation industry has been striving to develop lightweight automotive components.
- Increasing preference toward brazing process over soldering, and welding, among others
Brazing is a metal-joining process in which two or more metal items are joined together by melting and flowing a filler metal into the joint. It is widely used to join metal conductors in high through to low voltage electrical earthing systems. This process is currently used in the U.K., Ireland, and among other countries worldwide, to create a permanent joint of two conductive metals, usually copper or steel.
- Wide applications of brazing alloys in various industries
Brazing is a widely used joining process because it can join almost all metals except aluminum and magnesium. It is used for electrical components, pipe fittings among others. Metals having uneven thickness can be joined by brazing. Brazing is used to bond a variety of metals, dissimilar metals, and even non-metals.
- Fluctuating prices of braze metals
The prices of raw materials are currently fluctuating at unprecedented levels both in the United States and elsewhere in the world. Since pricing is affected by the tightening of supply markets. Beyond supply and demand, the other factor has been influencing short-run fluctuations in the prices of raw materials. Investors can suddenly move away from what they perceive to be riskier bets, including stocks and commodities.
- Adverse effect of brazing on the environment
Brazing is one of the fundamental technologies in manufacturing and is widely used in aerospace, rail transit, semiconductors, refrigerating appliances and other fields
The traditional brazing process involves harmful environment effects. The main cause of the pollution is excessive flux residual. The brazing process include the inability to precisely control the flux. The excessive residual flux and cleaning after brazing, leads to serious wastage of flux and environmental pollution. Also, it affects the service life of weldment.

Post COVID-19 Impact on Braze Alloys Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has highly disrupted the supply chain of raw materials used to manufacture braze alloys and the disturbance in the supply chain of end-user industries. It was attributed to the lack of resources and transportation, which led to lower access, delayed stock, and supplies of raw materials products. Additionally, many governments restricted the movement of goods across the countries, and the entire supply chain was distorted. Due to the disrupted supply chain, transportation of raw materials has been interrupted, stalling production. Similarly, inflated prices and halt on braze alloys production have resulted in unmet demands for braze alloys in various end-users such as constructions, electronics, aerospace and defense.
COVID-19 pandemic also has adverse effects on end end-user industries of braze brazing alloys. It has negatively impacted the construction industry.
According to global data, construction output in North America may decrease by as much as USD 122bn in 2020 as a result of the economic shock of COVID-19. A 0.6% increase in construction output was predicted across North America before the pandemic, but this is now expected to fall by about 6.5% in the U.S. and 7% in Canada
As a result the braze alloy market will also be affected as brazing techniques are used in buildings and construction.
Thus, disturbance in supply chain due to COVID-19 pandemic is expected to act as a challenge for Europe braze alloys market.
- In February 2022, OC Oerlikon Management AG has expanded its online ordering platform to its European customers. This expansion has helped the company to attract more customer base.
