Molybdenum is a silvery-white, highly ductile and corrosion-resistant metal offering excellent strength and mechanical stability at high temperatures. It is widely used in rotating X-ray anodes that further find application in clinical diagnostics, glass melting furnace electrodes and sprayed coatings of automotive piston rings and machine components to reduce friction. It is also utilized in the production of components that are resistant to molten glass and heat sinks with thermal expansivity. At present, the burgeoning oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, construction, aerospace, and defense sectors are positively influencing the demand for molybdenum across the globe.
The growing demand for molybdenum in the steel industry to increase the hardenability, toughness, and tensile strength of steel represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, there is a rise in the utilization of molybdenum in electronic devices due to its expansion under high-temperature conditions. This, along with the rising employment of molybdenum as a catalyst in petroleum refineries to help refine petroleum products and remove sulfur from natural gas, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, there is an increase in the usage of molybdenum in the aerospace industry to reduce vibration and improve pilot and passenger comfort. It is also used to stable control surfaces for ailerons, elevators, and rudder sections of aircraft, helicopter rotor blades, and cockpit equipment. Besides this, the rising applications of molybdenum in the defense industry for manufacturing premier warheads, nozzles, and shaped charge liners, is positively influencing the market. Furthermore, key market players are introducing new primary and byproduct operations to expand their customer base. These players are also focusing on capacity expansions and mergers and acquisitions (M&A), which is projected to bolster their overall sales and profitability.
