Transition Metals Market worth USD 1,369.46 Billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 4.2% - Report by Market Research Future (MRFR)


New York, Aug. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Transition Metals Market Overview: According to a comprehensive research report by Market Research Future (MRFR), Transition Metals Market Research Report: Information By Type, By Application, By Region - Forecast till 2028.”, the market to expand at a decent rate of more than 4.2% from 2021 to 2028. Additionally, the global market shall touch close to USD 1,369.46 billion by 2028-end.

Market Scope:

Iron, copper, titanium, manganese, nickel, silver, cobalt, gold, and mercury are some of the major transitional metals with expansive application ranges in diverse end-use sectors including automotive, building & construction, paints& coatings, electronic, and more. Iron happens to be the most commonly found metal in Earth's solid crust, coming fourth out of all the elements and second out of the metals in crystal abundance. Transition metals are significantly harder, denser, and less reactive than alkali metals. Transition metal oxides act as catalysts and help absorb other types of metals onto their surface, activating the oxidation process.

Top Growth Boosters:

The transition metals industry could attain substantial traction in the next few years, mostly due to the rapidly escalating demand from transportation and construction sectors. The significant rise in the industrialization rate in line with the strong government support, especially in developing regions like Central & South America and Asia Pacific have fostered the growth of the automotive and construction industries. This should ultimately work in favor of the transition metal market.

With respect to versatility, transition metals are ductile and malleable, making them the perfect materials to be used in the manufacturing of metal-based products. This has raised the market demand in the marine as well as automotive industries to a large extent. Transition metals also find use in cables and wires, since these are excellent conductors of electricity and heat, and therefore cover an extensive range of applications in several industries. Soaring demand for adaptable and versatile metals in sectors like medical, construction, automotive, and electrical should also benefit the transition metals industry in subsequent years.

Transition metals also have a deep impact on human life, used extensively in nutritional supplements. Transition metals like cobalt, iron, molybdenum, and copper are important for maintaining a good health and wellbeing. Iron deficiency reduces body’s ability to transport enough oxygen, which results in urgent need for iron supplements. Other major transition metals, such as cobalt and copper are present as trace elements within the body. Nickel is an alloying metal that helps develop heat-resistant and stainless steel and could be blended with chromium and various metals to bolster the toughness, elastic limit, and tensile strength. As a result, nickel is experiencing a huge demand from the stainless-steel industry and could create growth avenues for the transition metals market in the ensuing years.
