Tungsten Market Overview


The Tungsten Market is calculated with the USD of 3.5 billion in 2017, and it is expected to get the growth with a CAGR of around 8% through 2025.


An increase in the usage of tungsten in the industries like automotive, aerospace, defence, electronics, oil and gas, mining etc. are the main reason for the growth of the Tungsten Market.


Tungsten is a heavy metal that melts when heated with the highest melting point among all the metals. This is mostly used in metal alloys to add strength to the metals. The use of tungsten has increased because of its usage in the industries like X-ray tubes, bulb filaments, radiation shielding, superalloys, penetrating projectiles, gas tungsten arc welding are some of the industries which are the main reason for the growth of the tungsten market size.


COVID Analysis


Due to the outbreak of the pandemic across the world in the year 2020, many governments are trying to reduce the spread of the pandemic. To avoid the spread of the pandemic across the globe many countries have implemented the lockdown. This is to maintain the social distance among the people and also to reduce the cases of the affected patients. In many countries, due to the spread of the pandemic, the growth of the economy has been affected in the very worst manner. But to avoid the spread and to safeguard the people, the government has introduced the vaccine.


As the spread of the pandemic has locked many industries and economic growth. due to the lockdown, the transport and the business were shut down. Due to the unavailability of the transport and the labours the raw materials were available in the high cost. but the sales of the tungsten market has gained demand in the medical field due to the usage of the Xrays and radiation. It is valued that after the post-pandemic it is expected that the growth will be stable in the tungsten market.


Market Dynamics


Crucial Market drivers

The usage of tungsten in the mining industry because of its melting nature is one of the main driving forces for the growth in the tungsten market share. The increase in the growth and the demand in using the tungsten carbide in the cutting tools and the precision equipment is the important factor that boosts the tungsten market share. Additionally, the use of the Tungsten in electronic industry is also one of the factors that enrich the growth.


It is expected that the growth of the tungsten in using it as the metal alloys is one of the main reasons for the growth. This is calculated as the dominating growth factor in the forecast period.


The market growth opportunities

After the pandemic spread once the situation gets normal, people started to get back to their normal life. The main opportunity in the tungsten market share is the growth in the mining industry. The mining sector is the key end-user of numerous products. This is because many industries depend on the product supply from the mining industries.


Due to this, there is an increase in the demand for tungsten carbide because of its usage in the mining industry. By using tungsten in the mining industries are manufacturing the top hammer rock drill bits, roller cutters, downhole hammers, raise boring reamers, longwall shearer picks.


The market restraints

The main restraints which are being faced by the tungsten industry, which hinder the tungsten market growth are the supply gap which is because of the lockdown. The main reason that hinders the growth, is the lack of the supply of the raw materials because of the unavailability of transportation. This caused the restrain in the tungsten market growth.


The market challenge

The increase in the demand for the usage of the tungsten market value is one of the challenges. As the spread of the pandemic has caused the demand for raw materials. Because of the shortage and unavailability of the raw materials, the manufacturing companies are working hard to gain their market by delivering the products on time. Due to the increase in the demand for the products made of the tungsten during the lockdown, the unavailability of the raw materials is one of the challenges which is faced against gaining the tungsten market revenue.


Cumulative growth analysis


The main reason for the growth of the tungsten market revenue is because of the development in many sectors. The growth and development in the mining sector also the increase in the sectors like automotive, electrical and electronics, aerospace and defence has brought an impact on the growth of the tungsten market.


The fuel demand is also an important driving factor for the growth of the tungsten market. It is also calculated that the growth of the tungsten market in the forecasting period is also great.


Value chain analysis


Many primary factors like the growth and demand in the usage of the e-vehicles, fuel efficiency, automotive light-weighting are the main driving force for the growth of the tungsten market. The growth of the transportation sector also brings growth in the tungsten market.
