The global antimony market reached a value of US$ 1.92 Billion in 2020. Antimony refers to a lustrous grey chemical element that exists in both metallic and non-metallic forms. The metallic form is hard, brittle and bright silvery-bluish in color, whereas the non-metallic form is available in the form of greyish powder. It is extracted from ores, such as stibnite and valentinite, and is considered to be a stable element in dry air and static to alkalis and acids. Antimony is also a poor conductor of heat and electricity, owing to which it is commonly used in the manufacturing of semiconductor devices, including infrared detectors and diodes, batteries, low friction metals, flame-proofing materials, ceramic enamels and paints.
The global market for antimony is being primarily driven by the increasing demand for antimony trioxide (ATO) for manufacturing flame retardants and plastic additives. ATO is an inorganic element that is widely used with halogenated compounds to create a synergistic effect with flame retardant properties. Rising product adoption for the production of lead-acid batteries, solders, pipes, castings and bearings for transistors, which form a crucial part of various consumer electronics, such as computers, calculators, portable stereos and gaming devices, is also providing a boost to the market growth. Additionally, the rising demand for antimony-based fiberglass composites with chemical and heat-resistant properties is also creating a positive impact on the market growth. Other factors, including rapid industrialization and increasing demand for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) packaging that is manufactured using antimony as a key ingredient, are projected to drive the market in the upcoming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global antimony market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
