June 08, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Molybdenum Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2024-2032," the global molybdenum market size reached 5,734.3 Tons in 2023. Molybdenum (Mo) is a chemical element that belongs to the group of transition metals and is known for its high melting point, strength, and corrosion resistance. It has a silvery-white appearance and is commonly found in various minerals. It is primarily obtained as a byproduct of copper mining and is used in numerous industrial applications. Due to its high melting point, molybdenum is often utilized in the production of high-temperature alloys, such as stainless steel and superalloys. It also acts as a catalyst in chemical reactions and finds application in the petroleum refining and chemical industries. It is a crucial component of enzymes involved in nitrogen fixation and plays a role in the metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids.

Global Molybdenum Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the widespread product demand from the industrial sector. Molybdenum is primarily used as an alloy in the production of steel due to its ability to enhance strength, hardness, and corrosion resistance, which is acting as a significant driver for the market. Additionally, molybdenum plays a vital role in energy production as it is used in the manufacturing of superalloys for gas and steam turbines used in power generation, thereby creating a positive market outlook. Moreover, the increasing investments in infrastructural development projects, such as bridges, highways, and buildings, require steel reinforcement is providing a boost to the demand for molybdenum. Apart from this, molybdenum is also used in several environmental applications, including wastewater treatment and air pollution control systems on account of the stringent environmental regulations and a growing focus on sustainable practices, which have resulted in increased molybdenum usage in these sectors. Some of the other factors driving the market further include rapid urbanization and industrialization and widespread product adoption in various industrial applications, including chemicals, lubricants, electronics, and catalysts. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a volume of 7,093.7 Tons by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 2.3% during 2024-2032.
