DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Antimony Market - Segmented by Product Type, By Application, and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2016 - 2020)" report to their offering.
The global antimony market analysis report shows that the antimony market size, globally includes the metalloid consumption in all its commercially used forms, including metal ingot, antimony alloys, antimony trioxide, antimony pentoxide, and others. Antimony, a toxic chemical element, is generally classified as a metalloid and has been known to humans for around 4000 years.
Antimony, owing to its high reactivity towards sulphur, copper, and other elements present in the earth's crust, is found in its elemental form in very small quantities. Most of the metalloid is extracted from ores, valentinite and stibnite, while relatively lower quantities are currently being produced through recycling old products containing antimony, mostly lead batteries and antimony alloy-based products. The majority of global antimony reserves and production is in China, resulting in ample availability, and consequently the country being the major consumer in the global antimony market in 2015.,
Antimony, owing to its poisonous nature and demand-supply imbalance, is used in small quantities in various applications in major commercial and industrial sectors, including transportation, plastics, glass, clothing, consumer goods and toys etc.
Some of the major companies dominating this market are:
- Beijing North Xinyuan Electrical Carbon Products Co.
- Huachang Antimony Industry
- Hunan ChenZhou Mining Group Co.
- Mandalay Resources Corp.
- Shanghai Metal Corporation
- United States Antimony Corp.
