Antimony Market Overview:

Antimony is a valuable mineral that is regularly utilized in modern industrialized countries. The element improves the strength, durability, and chemical resistance of alloys used in a variety of industries, including lead-acid storage batteries. The primary application of antimony is as a flame retardant in protective gear and home items e.g. mattresses.

Antimony Market Dynamics:

The growing use of Antimony in metallurgy and semiconductor applications is expected to be a major driver of the market growth. The electronics industry uses very high purity antimony metal (99 percent pure) in silicon chips to make infrared sensors, transistors, and other gadgets, as well as for other purposes. Antimony is also found in anti-friction joints, for mechanical typesetting, solder (as much as 10% antimony, but normally considerably less), and ornamental molds of Britannia metal (5 % antimony) and pewter (7.5 % antimony in current goods). To improve heat tolerance, graphite bearings are treated with antimony. Antimony, along with beryllium, is utilized as a starter neutron source in nuclear reactors. The term "antimony black" refers to finely powdered metallic antimony that is utilized in the bronzing of metals and plaster castings. The chronic health effects associated with Antimony are expected to be a major restraint in the market growth. • The principal consequences of chronic antimony exposure in humans include respiratory symptoms e.g. antimony pneumoconiosis (lung inflammation induced by dust intake), abnormalities in pulmonary function, bronchial asthma, chronic emphysema, dormant TB, pleural adhesions, and discomfort. • Cardiovascular consequences (increased blood pressure, changed EKG readings, and cardiac muscle damage) and gastrointestinal issues have also been observed in persons who have been persistently exposed to antimony by breathing. • Chronic inhalation exposure has been proven in animal tests to have impacts on the pulmonary, cardiovascular, and renal systems. Animal studies on antimony exposure include bloodstream, liver, central nervous system, and gastrointestinal abnormalities. The scope for future explorations of antimony deposits is expected to be the key opportunity in the global market. Most unknown primary antimony deposits are most likely to be found in geologic environments comparable to those known to host antimony deposits (i.e. continental sedimentary basins). These sorts of sedimentary rocks would be ideal locations in the United States, particularly in the Cordillera of Alaska, as well as in California, Montana, Idaho, and Nevada. Large-scale shear regions and strike-slip fault regions, e.g.those found in Nevada, may be conducive to antimony fissure-vein occurrences. Historically, hardly any exploration has been focused entirely on antimony. The majority of antimony exploration has occurred as a by-product of exploring for other mineral commodities, e.g. copper, gold, lead, and silver. But this scenario is expected to change in the future considering the demand for antimony in the semiconductor industry.

Antimony Market Segment Analysis:

By Application, the flame retardant segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% in the forecast period. Subsequent antimony demand growth would be heavily influenced by the amount of demand from the flame-retardant sector, which accounts for 54.5 percent of primary antimony consumption globally and around 90.5 percent of global antimony trioxide consumption. Antimony trioxide is typically utilized as catalyst support with bromine and chlorine in the flame-retardant industry. Antimony-based catalysts are currently used in the manufacturing of polyethylene terephthalate around the globe. A unique chip created from germanium-antimony telluride has been introduced in the semiconductor industry for 'Phase-change' Random Access Memory chips that can process information quicker than flash drives and are non-flammable, unlike silicon. The chips are now available for purchase and are likely to find use in cell devices and wireless cameras. Recent research and development projects started by lead-acid battery manufacturers have resulted in considerable modifications in lead-acid battery design, yielding significantly better performance that is destined to make lead-acid batteries a better and more feasible alternative than their rivals. This would ultimately lead to an increase in the usage of antimony in lead-acid batteries, increasing the use of antimony in battery markets. The world supply of antimony is predicted to increase to a level sufficient to fulfill future demand. However, according to the United States Geological Survey, global antimony consumption is likely to rise due to an increase in the use of antimony in fire retardants, lead-acid batteries, and polymers, especially in Asia.
