Nickel Hydroxide Market Research Report - Forecast to 2023


Market Analysis The global nickel hydroxide market is predicted to take a swift uptake during the assessment period (2017-2023). It is an inorganic compound which is also known as Nickel (II) hydroxide or Ni (OH)2. Nickel hydroxide is a crystalline solid that is odorless and apple green in color generally available in the form of a powder. It readily dissolves in ammonium hydroxide and acids but insoluble in water. This compound contains carcinogenic properties, thus is associated with growing risk of developing nasal and lung cancer. Exposure to nickel hydroxide can lead to severe skin problems, asthma-like allergies and dermatitis, and affects the neurological system, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys and lungs. During decomposition this compound emits toxic fumes of metallic nickel.

Consumer electronics and portable devices increasing demand for rechargeable batteries is driving the growth of the global nickel hydroxide market. Along with nickel-cadmium batteries this compound is used as a catalyst too in various chemical reactions. This is another driving force that is pushing the growth of the global nickel hydroxide market. The superior performance, utmost reliability and long-battery life is expected to fuel the growth of the market. The additional factors that are substantiating the growth of the global nickel hydroxide market include increase in the demand for electronic devices that are battery-operated, increase in consumers’ purchasing power, improving economic conditions, industrialization and urbanization and ever-increasing population across the world.

Market Segmentation In Market Research Future (MRFR) report, the global nickel hydroxide market has been segmented on the basis of application and end-user. Based on application, it is segmented into catalyst and batteries. Based on end-user, the nickel hydroxide market is segmented into chemical industry, electronics industry and automotive industry.

Regional Analysis Based on region, the global nickel hydroxide market covers growth opportunities and latest trends across five regions- Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa. Of these, Asia Pacific leads the nickel hydroxide market owing to the increasing demand and use of nickel hydroxide in manufacturing batteries. The growing demand for such batteries in several consumer products, hybrid electric vehicles and portable devices have propelled this region to experience a healthy growth during the assessment period. South Korea and Japan having strong electronics industry base is driving the demand for nickel hydroxide market. India and China are anticipated to boost the demand for nickel batteries owing to its use in the hybrid electric vehicles. Moreover, China has the biggest car market and is coming up with strategies to ban the production and sale of emission fuel cars to reduce pollution and switch over to an electric car. Not only this, the electronics industry in India and China is also growing at a quick pace for supplementing their developing economy. The leading electronic manufactures are shifting their production plants in this region due to open market strategy, simple investment norms, expediate the method and other incentivizing strategies adopted by such countries. Moreover, disposable income of the inhabitants


of this region, increasing purchasing power and growing urbanization are fueling the growth of nickel hydroxide market in this region. Europe is predicted to show exceptional demand for nickel hydroxide due to its use in the electric hybrid vehicles. The European countries such as Netherland, Sweden, Germany, Britain and France have joined the ambitious plan under the Paris climate accord with an aim to end sales of diesel and petrol cars by 2040. The application of nickel hydroxide in consumer electronics along with other portable devices is also likely to increase the demand of nickel hydroxide market. Norway government’s transportation plan highlights a clear target that every new passenger car and van that will be sold in 2025 must be zero-emission cars.

Competitive Analysis The nickel hydroxide market appears to be highly competitive and fragmented, characterized by the existence of different small and large-scale players. The key players are incorporating strategic initiatives such as technology launch, partnership, expansion, collaboration and acquisition. Such strategies are likely to augment the product quality and boost up production capacity to cater to the increasingly growing demand, especially from the emerging regions.

Key Players Leading players profiled in the global nickel hydroxide market include Changsha Xinye Industrial Co. Ltd, Jiangmen chancsun Umicore Industry Co., Ltd, ZincFive Inc., Tanaka Chemical Corporation, SUMITOMO METAL MINING CO. LTD, Triveni Chemicals, Umicore, Kelong, Tinchem Enterprise, American elements, Jilin Jien Nickel Industry Co., Ltd., Nippy Chemicals, Alt Cobalt and Nickel Products (dalian) Co.
