Bismuth Market Revenue Pegged at USD 302.39 MN with 4.15% CAGR Over Forecast Period 2016-2022 :

Pune, India, July, 2018 /press release/- Market Research Future Published a Half Cooked Research Report on Global Bismuth Market Research Report.

Market Synopsis

The global bismuth is bound to grow significantly, reaching USD 302.39 MN with CAGR of 4.15% during forecast period (2016-2022), states Market Research Future (MRFR). Escalating environmental regulations for lead usage in various end-use industries benefit the bismuth market. Bismuth metal is not toxic and poses no threat to the environment, enhancing its demand. Also, stringent regulations and initiatives by manufacturers to phase out lead production spur the bismuth market growth. The growing automotive industry which uses bismuth in rust free coatings, pearlescent coatings, brake linings, and clutch pads are also deemed to provide traction for the bismuth market demand over the forecast period. Other than this, growing base metal tungsten production is projected to increase bismuth supply in the market. It’s been observed that new entrants are venturing in with high production capacity which increases the competition within the bismuth market.

On the flip side, rigid regulations and mandates related to contamination of resources and water footprint monitoring undermine the market growth. However, increasing research activities to explore additional uses of bismuth, its physical and chemical traits will elevate the product utilization in more applications around the world, positively impacting the bismuth market.

A trend that is making its way into the global market is the use of bismuth as an anode for Sodium-Ion Batteries (SIB).
