The global beryllium hydroxide market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 1% in the forecast period of 2022-2027. The major players in the market include Materion Corporation, Ulba Metallurgical Plant JSC, IBC Advanced Alloys Corp., and American Elements, among others.
Beryllium hydroxide, more commonly known as hydrated beryllia, is a hydroxide with a chemical formula of BeH2O2, which can dissolve both in acids and alkalis. Industrially, the compound is obtained as a by-product during the extraction of beryllium metal from bertrandite and beryl ores.
The market is supported by the construction of the ITER fusion reactor, along with growing research and development activities. The technology required to produce this fusion is highly dependent on beryllium hydroxide. Along with this, the increasing demand for highly secure defence systems, increase in consumption of energy, rise in the sale of vehicles, and increased demand for enhanced communication networks, further favours the market growth of beryllium hydroxide.
