Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Tungsten Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global tungsten market: ALMONTY, China Molybdenum, Wolf Minerals, Wolframcompany, Xiamen Tungsten, and Chongyi ZhangYuan Tungsten.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is miniaturization of electronic components. With the growing demand for mini devices and small-sized portable devices including smartphones, electronic components such as the ICs are increasingly being miniaturized. Several advances in semiconductors and the increasing shift to ICs has encouraged manufacturers to produce small electro-mechanical components.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is vast reserves of tungsten ores in China. With over 75% of the global tungsten output, China is one of the key producers across the globe. Furthermore, the country ranks first with over 1,900,000 metric tons of reserves and is considered as the largest producer, exporter, and consumer of tungsten.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is stringent environmental and safety regulations. Ingestion of Tungsten metal or carbide through air. water, or food causes lungs diseases and carcinogenic health issues. The areas around tungsten mines, tungsten production industries, and natural deposits have high levels of tungsten in the air and water.
