ACCESS REPORT @ Recent research into the Global Antimony Market
The Global Antimony Market has been estimated at 239.62 kilotons in 2015 and is projected to reach XX.XX kilotons by 2020, at a CAGR of below 5.00% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. The market witnessed an estimated year on year growth of 4.12% from 2014 to 2015. In the report, the global antimony market size includes the metalloid consumption in all its commercially used forms, including metal ingot, antimony alloys, antimony trioxide, antimony pentoxide, and others. Antimony, a toxic chemical element, is generally classified as a metalloid and has been known to humans for around 4000 years. Antimony, owing to its high reactivity towards sulphur, copper, and other elements present in the earth’s crust, is found in its elemental form in very small quantities. Most of the metalloid is extracted from ores, valentinite and stibnite, while relatively lower quantities are currently being produced through recycling old products containing antimony, mostly lead batteries and antimony alloy-based products. The majority of global antimony reserves and production is in China, resulting in ample availability, and consequently the country being the major consumer in the global antimony market in 2015.
Antimony, owing to its poisonous nature and demand-supply imbalance, is used in small quantities in various applications in major commercial and industrial sectors, including transportation, plastics, glass, clothing, consumer goods and toys etc. In the antimony market report, we have taken the following major application segments into consideration: Flame Retardant Synergist, Lead Acid Batteries, Alloy Strengthening Agent, Fiberglass Composites, Catalyst, and Others. The flame retardant synergist application segment is expected to account for 50.00% share of the global antimony market in 2015.
This market is driven by a number of factors, such as growing demand for flame retardant products, increasing imports by china, and demand from PET manufacturers. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, such as antimony supply and demand imbalance and dwindling antimony prices. These factors may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.
The market has also been geographically segmented based on consumption and production. In terms of production, the report focuses on the following major countries: Australia, Bolivia, China, Mexico, Myanmar, Russia, South Africa, Tajikistan, and others. In terms of consumption, the market has been divided into Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle-East and Africa. The regions have further been divided into major consumer countries. In terms of both consumption and production, in 2015 China is estimated to lead the market with a share of XX.XX%. The stable price of antimony due to its highly available reserve (ingot, trioxide, and other compounds), combined with the restrictive antimony export policies enacted by the government, antimony consumption is increasing in China.
Furthermore, government crackdown on illegal antimony mining in China, increased mining outside the country, and growing popularity of antimony recovery from recycled products will offer numerous opportunities in the growth of the global antimony market. Currently, antimony is mostly being recycled from lead batteries, though the recent development of a process to extract the element from lamp phosphor waste has been developed in Belgium. Some of the major companies dominating this market are Beijing North Xinyuan Electrical Carbon Products Co., Huachang Antimony Industry, Hunan ChenZhou Mining Group Co., Mandalay Resources Corp., Recylex, Shanghai Metal Corporation, United States Antimony Corp., Village Main Reef Ltd. and Yunnan Muli Antimony Industry.
