Increasing Demand for Molybdenum in Various End-Use Industries Aiding the Molybdenum Industry

Molybdenum is used as a catalyst in the petroleum industry to help remove sulphur from natural gas and refined petroleum products, which is propelling the market growth. As molybdenum has a very high melting point, it is used in the production of moly steel alloys that are used in various engines, hence aiding the industry growth. Moreover, it is also used along with cast iron to reduce carbon emission and produce cylinder heads, motor, and exhaust manifolds, which is consequently providing further impetus to the market growth.

The use of molybdenum disulphide, made from molybdenum and sulphur, to lubricate two strokes engines, bicycle coaster brakes, ski waxes, and bullets, among others, is further invigorating the market growth. Moreover, it protects the engine from wear and tear due to its geothermal origin, which is positively impacting the industry growth. In addition, the use of molybdenum in stainless steel alloys for tanker trucks and pharmaceutical and chemical mills is also contributing significantly to the overall market growth. Further, the surging demand for stainless steel to produce stainless steel service pipes, which can address the global issue of water leakage, is also catalysing the market growth. Moreover, favourable government regulations which allow the use of stainless steel in the food and beverage industry are further augmenting the market growth.

 

Molybdenum: Market Segmentation

Molybdenum is a silvery-white element that is ductile and highly resistant to corrosion. It is a transition metal that is recovered as a by-product of tungsten and copper mining. It is used in the production of alloys to increase their hardness, electrical conductivity, resistance, and strength. It is also an essential trace mineral, which is naturally found in milk, cereal grains, leafy vegetables, and organ meats, among others.

Rising Demand for Steel Alloys Owing to Mass Urbanisation to Bolster the Growth of Molybdenum Industry

The corrosion resistance property of molybdenum makes it suitable for application in the construction of buildings that are located in harsh environments. Moreover, the governments of developing economies, such as India and China, are investing significantly in the construction of roads, trains, power plants, and water systems, which is increasing the demand for energy production. In addition, robust demand for steel alloys in China and India owing to mass urbanisation and the escalating construction of residential and commercial spaces is expected to aid the market growth for molybdenum. Further, the sustainable property of stainless steel allows for its use in the development of green cities and buildings, which is expected to invigorate the market growth.

The robust growth of the aviation industry is increasing the demand for superior aircraft whose turbine engine can provide high performance and efficiency. The use of molybdenum to withstand high thermal, mechanical stress, reduce vibration, and improve the comfort of both passengers and the pilot, is augmenting the industry growth. In addition, solid rocket motors that use various speciality compounds to improve thrust and increase propulsion through vanes and nozzles use molybdenum which in turn is aiding the market growth. As molybdenum has outstanding thermomechanical and chemical properties and can easily withstand harsh weather, it is used to support jet engines and landing systems, which is further catalysing the market growth.
