Global Molybdenum Powder Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A powder form of the metal molybdenum. It is used as a component in alloys, pigments, and lubricants. Molybdenum powder is also used as a catalyst for various chemical processes.


Mo(%) is a chemical compound of molybdenum and one molecule of oxygen. It has 99.9% purity by weight and is usually found in the form of a powder. Mo(%) can be used as an additive for steel, alloys, ceramics or glass to improve their hardness or strength; it also finds application in research institutes as an electrolyte for experiments related to corrosion resistance.


Mo(%) is a chemical compound of molybdenum and oxygen. It has 99.95% purity and it's used in manufacturing Molybdenum Powder, which is an alloy of molybdenum with about 5% by weight tungsten added for improved performance in high temperatures.

Application Insights:

Molybdenum products were the largest application segment and accounted for a volume share of over 70.0% in 2017. The product is used as a catalyst, mold release agent, and hardener in manufacturing various molybdenum-based alloys which are further utilized in production of catalytic converters for automobiles and industrial boilers among other things.

The global demand for molybdenum has witnessed an upsurge owing to its usage as a strengthening agent in steelmaking process along with its applications such as lubricant additive & Catalysts among others. In addition, it is also used extensively as an alloying element to improve the mechanical properties of steel alloys which include strength, hardness, wear resistance & surface finish among others.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The region comprises major Mo production centers, such as China, India, Australia and Russia. Increasing demand for molybdenum powder from various end-use industries coupled with rising infrastructure activities in emerging economies of Asia Pacific is likely to drive the regional market over the forecast period.

The North American market was valued at USD X million in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing demand for technologically advanced products along with stringent regulations regarding environmental protectionism by regulatory bodies such as EPA (U.S Environmental Protection Agency) and DOT (U.S Department of Transportation).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive and aerospace industries for molybdenum powder as a strengthening agent in alloys.
  • Rapid growth of the electronics industry, which is using more molybdenum powder in semiconductor fabrication and other applications.
  • Growing use of molybdenum powder in energy-saving light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
  • Increasing demand for high-performance alloys that contain molybdenum powder as a key component.
