Antimony Market outlook by Product Type & Application- Forecast to 2023

Market Overview Antimony is a chemical element that exists in both metallic and non-metallic forms. The metallic form of antimony is silvery-white in color and brittle whereas the non-metallic form is a grey powder. It occurs naturally in the earth’s crust and forms minerals such as stibnite, kermesite, and valentite. Traces of antimony are also found in ores such as ilmenite, olivine, galena, sphalerite, and pyrite. The growth of the global antimony market is primarily driven by the increasing use of the element as a flame retardant in major industries such as building and construction, automotive, electrical and electronics, and aerospace. Antimony is used as a strengthening agent for lead alloys in the manufacturing of lead acid batteries, which are extensively used in electric vehicles as they are reliable, can deliver high currents, and have a low internal impedance and indefinite shelf life when stored without an electrolyte. Stringent regulations for environmental protection and reduction of CO2 emissions are expected to fuel market growth during the forecast period. For instance, the European Union has set an emission reduction target of 95 grams of CO2 per kilometer, the fleet average to be achieved by all new cars. Antimony is used to manufacture solder, steel and pipe metals, bearings, and castings. It is also used in making transistors for electrical devices such as computers, gaming devices, pocket calculators, and portable stereos. According to the International Antimony Association, antimony compounds such as antimony trioxide, antimony tris, sodium antimonate can be used as polycondensation catalysts for the manufacturing of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The increasing demand for PET in food packaging and beverage bottling due to its recyclability is further driving the demand for antimony. Additionally, the rising demand for cosmetics such as kohl, which uses antimony, is expected to propel market growth during the forecast period.
