Tungsten Carbide Powder Regional Insights


By region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific holds the highest share of the tungsten carbide market. China is the leader in the production of tungsten ore. The output from China of tungsten ore accounts for around 85% of the total tungsten ore production. However, this is likely to hinder supply chains. The economy has dominant control over the tungsten resources, and it also manages the quota for export, while also implementing strict policies that have adverse negative effects on the supply chains. Japan, too, is likely to play a noteworthy role in this market. The economy has a small mining sector but a large minerals-processing industry of nonferrous and ferrous industrial minerals and metals.
