Global Molybdenum Market - Segmented by End Products, End-User Industry and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2018 - 2023)
The global molybdenum market is expected to witness a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period of 2018 - 2023. The major factor driving the market is the increasing industrial activity in China and expansion of the energy sector.
Growing Demand for Molybdenum Bearings
The growing demand for molybdenum bearings in the steel and chemical sectors is alleviating its prices. This is expected to benefit the molybdenum market to a great extent. Additionally, the increase in industrial activities, accompanied by the infrastructural expansion in countries, like China, India, and Indonesia, are expected to witness a growth in demand for steel, which is likely to drive the market for molybdenum during the forecast period. The deceleration of demand from the Chinese oil & gas sector due to the decline in exploration and production activities, where molybdenum steel bearings are heavily used, may hamper the growth of the molybdenum market.
Growing Demand from End-user Industries
Molybdenum is heavily required in steel for the building and construction sector, and the growth of the construction market in Asia-Pacific is likely to boost the demand for molybdenum. The growing steel consumption in end-user industries including the automotive and transportation sector is expected to account for a huge share in the market. With the growing demand for lightweight and electronic vehicles globally, there has been a huge increase in the total automotive production. These levels are expected to rise further, boosting the demand for steel, which in turn, is expected to benefit the market for molybdenum during the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific Dominates the Market
Asia-Pacific is expected to have the largest market globally for molybdenum during the forecast period. The rapid industrialization and rising consumption are expected to boost the market. Additionally, steel manufacturing in emerging economies, such as China and India, is expected to further augment the growth of the molybdenum market during the forecast period.
