Antimony Market Overview 

The Antimony Market Growth is expecting to grow at a substantial growth rate of 7.3% during the forecast period. During this period, the market is expecting to reach a final market valuation worth USD 3,321 million by the end of the forecast period. Antimony can be recognized as a chemical element that is found in both metallic forms and non-metallic ones. Comparatively, the metallic form belongs to a brittle nature and is usually, available in a bright silver color. But, the non-metallic one is the one that is usually present in grey color and powders form. 


Antimony can be extracted from ores like stibnite and valentinite. They are generally available as a part of nature. Antimony is present independently as well, and hence, can be used at a wider scale. Companies are using them on an elaborated scale and this is one of the major reasons due to which their uses are being recognized globally.


COVID 19 Analysis 


Since the pandemic has taken over the normal trends and way of living of the common man, the market players have been struggling to keep up with the changes and introduce new and changed tastes and preferences. One of the major issues which the markets have faced since the coronavirus outbreak is that there is the unavailability of skilled labor due to the imposed lockdown of the temporary and permanent kind alongside the reduced availability of raw materials that are ultimately leading to a major disruption in the supply chain mechanism.

Also, a satisfied customer means a better return on investments in the long run.


Market Dynamics 


Drivers 


One of the most important factors that are driving the Antimony Market Growth during the forecast period is that there is a huge rise in the growing fire safety regulations in both the private and commercial spaces that are pushing for a greater need for antimony. Owing to its role in maintaining fire safety, antimony is used in other places like schools, and offices, as well. Also, the alternate uses of antimony that is its role as an additive in fiber-glass composites for adhesion purposes are helping in the global growth of the market during the period. The adhesive property of antimony is quite high and hence, this will drive the market towards growth during the period. 


Opportunities 


Owing to short circuit and wiring concerns at various places, fire safety and availability of appropriate equipment are a must. This is one of the main reasons for the rising demand for the Antimony Market. Also, antimony acts as a stable element when it is suspended in dry air. This is an interesting fact that gives rise to the exploration degree that gives rise to the discovery of antimony reserves. All these factors are likely to present great opportunities to the market operations for expansions and global dominance. 


Technology Analysis 


Recognizing the risk of maintaining the environmental health that rises after using antimony, there is a rise in the investment quantum to decrease the ill effects of using antimony on the environment, and also, major steps are being taken so that public health is not at risk. Technological advancements are helping antimony to be used in lead-acid batteries as well, that help in reusing and hence, present the Antimony Market with great opportunities for global expansion and domination during the forecast period.

Recent Developments



  • Jan 2022 The results of Blue Lagoon Resources Inc.'s 2021 soil sample study on its Dome Mountain Gold Project, a year-round accessible site located a short 50-minute drive from Smithers, BC, have been released. In several new zones, the Company's 2021 soil sampling program identified strong anomalous gold, zinc, and copper-in-soils zones that justify further investigation during the Company's 2022 exploration season. In the initial stage of the 2021 Phase 2 program, anomalous pathfinder elements associated with gold-in-soil anomalies at Freegold, including antimony, zinc, lead, molybdenum, mercury, uranium, copper, bismuth, and silver, were drilled, and high-grade gold was encountered as expected.

  • Aug 2021 Perpetua said that it has engaged into a strategic supply deal with Ambri, Inc., a fellow American business, to supply antimony for its nascent liquid metal battery research (LMBs). The potential of wind and solar electricity to play increasing roles in electric grids will almost certainly rely on the full development of LMBs. Only two minerals are used in Ambri's LMB technology: antimony and salt. Rather of needing to solve for massive new quantities of a variety of important minerals such as lithium, cobalt, and nickel, LMB tech must solve for large volumes of one mineral, antimony, because salt is abundant all over the world.

  • AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group acquired some of the assets belonging to International Specialty Alloys in November 2019. The company is one of the leading producers of titanium master alloys in the US market and also deals in other binary alloys that are a part of the aerospace market. AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group aims at massive business expansion with the acquisition.



  • The rising demand for safe and fire-resistant products is rising in the European market and the industries are opting for similar product patterns. Hence, the demand and profits have a scope to be revived in this market. The revenue expectations are growing and might take a positive turn by the end of the current forecast period.



  • The North American players are also, opting for an increase in investment in the research and development sector that is pushing for the production of safer products and materials that fit the budget of the users and solve the purposes of the industry, as well.



  • Oman's first antimony & gold exporter and processing facility - Strategic and Precious Metals Processing (SPMP), announced that it would reach full production capacity by the end of 2020. Operating at full capacity, the facility would produce 20,000 tonnes of antimony products as well as 50,000 ounces of gold per year, representing 15 % of the average amount of the world's production of Antimony. The JV is expected to Position Oman on the global map of minor & precious metal producers firmly & strategically. The JV would also open a new chapter in the industrial journey of this nation.
