Report Description

Global Superconductor Market1
Global Superconductor Market1

Global Superconductor Market is expected to exceed the market valuation of US$ 11 billion in 2027 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Surging demand for advance power grid infrastructure coupled with rising implementation of government regulations needed to implement for safety of environment. In addition, superconductors are proficient of generating high magnetic fields that would help in reducing the sizes of medical devices by increasing the magnetic field. Hence, superconductor market is expected to grow at an influential rate in the forecasted period.  In addition, growing energy demand across globe required for day to day activities is expected to positively influence market demand. For instance, according to, Center for Sustainable Systems, Renewable energy consumption is projected to increase annually at an average rate of 1.9% between 2019 and 2050, compared to 0.3% growth in total energy use.

The key reasons for the growth superconductors is mainly owing to the companies resuming their operations and adapting to the new normal while recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to superconductors are restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges.
