The global molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) market size reached US$ 601.74 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 775.56 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.20% during 2023-2028. The increasing demand from numerous end-user industries, the bolstering growth of the electronics sector, and expanding product utilization across water treatment plants represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is a naturally occurring mineral belonging to the transition metal dichalcogenide group. It is a solid lubricant with excellent anti-friction and anti-wear properties, making it suitable for high-temperature and high-pressure environments. MoS2 is a two-dimensional material with a thickness of only a few atoms, due to which it is widely adopted across next-generation electronics and optoelectronics. Besides this, it has a large surface area and can store ions, which, in turn, has expanded its usage in energy storage applications, such as batteries and supercapacitors. In addition to this, MoS2 exhibits excellent semiconducting properties, due to which it is used in electronic devices such as transistors and solar cells. Consequently, it finds a wide range of applications across various end-user industries, including automotive, aviation, construction, oil and gas, chemical, and electronics.
Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) Market Trends:
The increasing demand for MoS2 from the automotive and aviation sectors due to its high strength and low weight, which helps minimize vibration and enhance passenger comfort, represents one of the prime factors driving the market growth. Besides this, the growing product adoption across end-use industries, such as construction, chemical and petrochemical, heavy equipment, and solvent, due to its high thermal stability and lubrication properties, is creating a favorable outlook for the market. Moreover, the bolstering growth of the electronics industry is contributing to the market growth as MoS2 is used in the production of electronic components such as semiconductors, thin-film transistors, and photovoltaic cells. Concurrent with this, the expanding product application in photodetectors, optoelectronic devices, field-effect transistors (FETs), sensors, and valleytronics are presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. In addition to this, the surging use of MoS2 in the oil and gas industry as a lubricant and catalyst, specifically for high-temperature and high-pressure purposes, is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the rising awareness about the benefits of MoS2 in water treatment and purification and large-scale product employment in the medical and healthcare industries, particularly for drug delivery systems and bioimaging, is strengthening the market growth. Other factors, such as extensive investments in research and development (R&D) initiatives, ongoing product innovations, and the shifting preference for MoS2 as a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional lubricants and chemicals, are positively impacting the market growth.
