Global Tungsten Market Research (MRFR Insights)


The  tungsten market is projected to register a CAGR of 8% from 2022 to 2030. Due to its special properties, tungsten can be used in various industrial applications. X-ray tubes, bulb filaments, radiation shielding, super alloys, penetrating projectiles, gas tungsten arc welding, and industrial catalysts are examples of these uses. The  tungsten market size is expected to reach approximately USD 3.89 billion by 2030. Some current uses include filaments in light bulbs and cathode ray tubes, electrodes, heating components, and field emitters. Tungsten is typically found in heavy metal alloys like high-speed steel, which are used to produce cutting tools. Additionally, it is utilized to create wear-resistant coatings for so-called super alloys. As tungsten's applications continue to rise, the world market for metal is anticipated to expand. More tempered metals are used in mining, oil & gas, aerospace, automotive, and oil & gas sectors. This is especially true for manufacturing, which uses tougher metals and cemented carbides. Following sintering, tungsten is easily incorporated into the mixture. It is also used more frequently in construction and metal-related applications because of its hardness (9 on the Mohs scale). The factor that drives the  market during the forecast period is the unique nature of tungsten makes it a suitable material for a wide variety of industrial applications. Furthermore, tungsten produces carbides, which are frequently used in drill bits, cutting tools, and other high-strength and high-temperature applications. While the chemical sector uses tungsten salts, sulfides, or oxides to make lubricants, catalysts, etc., pure tungsten is employed in the electronic industry. These main elements will propel the  market's expansion over the coming years.


COVID-19 Impact Analysis


Since COVID-19 started in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, it has spread rapidly worldwide. As far as confirmed cases and reported deaths are concerned, the US, India, Brazil, Russia, France, the UK, Turkey, Italy, and Spain are some of the most affected countries. Businesses have been shut down, and lockdowns have occurred across several countries as COVID-19 affects different economies and industries. As a result of plant shutdowns and factory closures, the  supply chains have been affected, and manufacturing, delivery schedules, and sales of products have been negatively impacted. It is already apparent that a few businesses may suffer from delays in their product deliveries and a decline in their future sales.


Tungsten Market Dynamics


In the coming years, the  market is expected to grow as end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, electrical, and electronics grow and wear-resistant materials become increasingly popular. Since tungsten is used in electronic and electrical components such as electron emitters, lead-in wires, and electrical contacts, the market has increased. Additionally, tungsten is used to manufacture carbides, which are used as cutting tools, drill bits, and other high-temperature and high-strength applications. The chemical industry uses tungsten salts, sulfides, or oxides to produce lubricants, catalysts, etc., while the electronics industry uses pure tungsten for its electronic applications. As a result, these factors will likely drive  market growth during the forecast period.


Market Drivers



  • Tungsten's application in mining


Among the main factors contributing to the growth in market share is its melting nature in the mining industry. The growing demand for cutting tools and precision equipment made from tungsten carbide is a significant factor that boosts the market share.

The use of tungsten as a metal alloy is expected to be one of the main factors driving the growth of the metal.


Tungsten Market Segmentation


Form Inisghts


Based on form, the  tungsten market segmentation is foils, ribbons, wires, and tubes. The  tungsten market growth was prominently high under the foils category in 2021, as stamped and drawn foil is ideal for applications that require high temperatures, including vacuum furnaces, coatings, and electronic and semiconductor components. Tungsten foil is used to construct heat shields, heating elements, and vacuum furnace carriers. Due to their high heat resistance in high-temperature environments, tungsten foils are used in high-temperature environments.


Product Inisghts


The  tungsten market segmentation, based on products, is carbides, tungsten alloys, tungsten mill products, and tungsten chemicals. In 2021, the carbides segment accounted for the largest market share of the  market due to the replaceable cutting tools and inserted widely used them. It is expected that tungsten alloys will show the fastest growth, largely due to the growth of aerospace manufacturing. In addition to using tungsten in electrical and electronic equipment, mill products containing the metal will demonstrate steady growth. As a result, the carbide segment in the  market is expected to grow in the coming years.


End-use Industry Inisghts


Based on end-use industry, the  market is divided into automotive, aerospace & defense, and electrical & electronics. The automotive category dominated the market for Tungsten in 2021.
