Global Nickel Market - Segmented by Application and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2017 - 2022) - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Nickel Market - Segmented by Application and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2017-2022)" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Nickel is a silver-white lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge. The element is hard and ductile, and commonly found in iron meteorites as the alloys kamacite and taenite. The element is acquired through extractive metallurgy and is separated from its ore by conventional roasting and reduction processes, which yield a metal of greater purity. 75% of the pure nickel can be used without any purification in stainless steel applications. New Caledonia and Australia have the highest estimated reserves.

An increase in the Chinese stainless steel industry and growth in the battery market of China, Korea, and Japan are expected to further grow the demand for nickel. Infrastructural development in China and India is also anticipated to boost the market. On the other hand, high investments and environmental considerations during mining activities are restraining the market growth.

The United States is anticipated to witness a major opportunity of demand growth for nickel, due to the upcoming developments in automotive and aerospace industries. The increasing consumption level of nickel in China is also expected to boost the market. With the onset of electronic vehicles, a heavy demand for nickel is expected, which will further accelerate the market growth.
