Global Tungsten Carbide Powder Market: An Overview
Global Tungsten Carbide Powder is a chemical compound consisting of atoms of tungsten and carbide. The compound can be pressed and molded into different shapes and sizes for usage in cutting tools, industrial machinery, abrasives, jewelry, and other tools and equipment. Tungsten Carbide powder is characterized by high thermal conductivity, intense strength, and extreme stiffness. The powder formed is stored in sealed polythene lined steel drums. Micro grain tungsten carbide powder is used for nozzles, end mills, and circuit board drills while the fine powder is used in cutting tools. The Global Tungsten Carbide Powder Market accounted for USD 15.22 million in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.6 percent in the forecasted period from 2020 to 2026.
Global Tungsten Carbide Powder Market: Market Dynamics
The rise in mining and construction activities, expansion of the transportation sector, development of engineering industries are some of the factors propelling the growth of the market and are expected to drive the expansion of the market in the forecasted period. In the mining and construction industry, the powders are employed in tunnel boring machines and roller cutters as they provide resistance from abrasion, wear and tear and improve the strength of materials. The powder is also widely used in the jewelry industry to prevent them from getting scratched or tarnished easily. Demand for energy minerals such as coal has led to a rise in mining activities, thereby leading to an increase in demand for the global tungsten carbide powder market. Additionally, rapid urbanization and improved infrastructure have led to the expansion of the construction project.
The emerging economies have been witnessing a rise in demand for coal and other minerals owning to an increase in electricity consumption to satisfy a large population. In addition, increasing investments made towards the consumption of oil and gas resources, increasing demand for tungsten carbide powder in the mining and construction industry owing to superior properties such as resistance to abrasion & impact, toughness, and hardness are anticipated to drive the expansion of the rotary drilling and mining grade segment. Henceforth, all these factors are expected to lead to an increase in demand for tungsten carbide powders.
