Commercial aerospace – Core material used in the construction of commercial aircraft
Industrial – Used extensively due to its corrosion and chemical resistance properties:
Chemical processing plants
Power generation for water cooling
Oil and gas for seawater and storage
Marine, particularly for cooling water system using seawater
Desalination for industrial and drinking water
The non-ferrous metallurgical sector
Defence – used in construction of military aircraft, combat vehicles, submarines, aircraft carriers and tanks. However, high raw material costs, demand uncertainty and budget cuts can impact the defence segments consumption.
Emerging – Largest growth is in emerging applications such as medical and dental, architecture and consumer goods including sporting equipment.
