DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Beryllium Market - Segmented by Type, End-User Industry, and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2016 - 2021)" report to their offering.
In 2012, the world beryllium production reached more than 228.41 tonnes. The US is by far the leader in the world beryllium market, with more than 85% share of the world beryllium output. Other important beryllium producing countries in the world include China, Mozambique, Brazil and Madagascar. Demand fluctuates as we have seen as the level of US government stockpiling is a key swing factor.
An uptrend is expected through over coming years with rising consumption from the telecommunications, automotive, electronics and computer industries. MI predicts a considerable increase in beryllium consumption in Latin America and Asia in the upcoming years. On the technological side the applications employing beryllium-containing alloys could make a significant contribution to the world beryllium market growth.
The US is forecast to remain the dominant market player in both consumption and production. The United States is the world's leading source of beryllium. China produced most of the remainder, and less than 2% came from Mozambique and other countries. Madagascar used to be an important producer in the 1990s but that has largely disappeared as a force.
Rising security concerns, new telecom and aerospace technologies, automotive electronics advancements make up a large-scale driver for the world beryllium market.
Environmental concerns provide the major restraint for the Beryllium market. The main negative is that inhalation of beryllium particulates may cause a potential health risk for a lung disease, Chronic Beryllium Disease, but reasonable industrial control practices can easily protect workers.
