Global 316L powder market trend 2024-2026 What is 316L Stainless Steel Powder? by Newsnewsmild

Recently, the world's largest investment management corporation, BlackRock, in a market research report said that currently, they prefer U.S. and Japanese equities to European equities because of the energy problem stemming from Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"Russia's invasion of Ukraine caused terrible injuries, a surge in commodity prices, and food and energy security issues," BlackRock, "It is stifling the economic growth and fulling inflation driven by supply problems. Europe is most affected among those developed markets, as it is trying to wean itself off Russian energy."

The volatile international political situations will continue to affect the markets and prices of many commodities like the 316L powder.

316L Stainless Steel Powder
316L class stainless steel, sometimes referred to as A4 or Marine class stainless steel, is the second most common austenitic stainless steel after 304/A2.

Stainless Steel
Like steel, stainless steel consists mainly of iron and carbon. However, stainless steel also contains at least 10.5% chromium, a metallic element that gives the metal a finish and excellent corrosion resistance. Stainless steel is ideal for long-term applications that will face elements, moisture, and potentially corrosive chemicals. It is also ideal for sensitive industries such as food preparation and pharmaceuticals because the risk of contamination is much lower.
Different grades of stainless steel also contain trace amounts of different elements. Class 304 stainless steel contains up to 35% nickel and is used in applications such as appliances, cookware, plumbing, and hardware. Grade 316 contains molybdenum, making it ideal for Marine equipment, chemical and pharmaceutical equipment, and commercial kitchen equipment. 316 steel is available in different varieties, including 316L. 316L stainless steel contains less carbon and molybdenum than typical 316 steel, which gives the two alloys different properties.


Differences between 316 and 316L Stainless Steel
The 316L component has a lower proportion of carbon. To meet the requirements of 316L stainless steel, the carbon content should not exceed 0.03%. This reduces the risk of carbon deposition, making it a better choice for welding to ensure maximum corrosion resistance.
The carbon content of 316 stainless steel is moderate and the molybdenum content is between 2% and 3%, which improves resistance to corrosion, acid elements, and high temperatures.
Both materials have excellent ductility, which means they perform well in bending, stretching, deep drawing, and spinning.


How to choose 316 or 316L Stainless Steel?
The following factors need to be considered when deciding whether to use 316 or 316L stainless steel:
Corrosion resistance: 316L is the best choice for high corrosion and high-temperature applications. Because 316L has less carbon than 316, it has better intergranular corrosion resistance, which means its welds don't decay like 316 stainless steel.
Cost: Although 316L has a lower carbon content, 316 and 316L stainless steel cost about the same.
Magnetism: 316 stainless steel has very low response to the magnetic field. Unlike ferromagnetic basic stainless steel, most varieties of stainless steel (including 316) are austenitic--or actually nonmagnetic. 
However, some 316 stainless steel products can undergo processes such as cold forming and welding, in which the austenite crystal structure is transformed into ferromagnetic martensite. 316L steel is easier to obtain a degree of magnetism. 
Practical applications: Both types of stainless steel can be used in a variety of industries.  However, 316 is mainly used in construction and infrastructure because it is robust, pitting, and corrosion resistant in most cases. The 316L is popular in pharmaceutical and photographic equipment because it can withstand welding and corrosive chemicals.

The 316L powder industry has experienced demand expectations driven by the rise and the off-season tired stock driven by the seasonal decline in two rounds of the market. Affected by the COVID-19 epidemic and other factors, inventories of manufacturers continue to accumulate, putting pressure on market sentiment. In addition to off-season factors, the weak trend of 316L powder also reflects the market's concern about the epidemic and some other related enterprises' financial situation.
