NEWARK, Del, Jan. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The molybdenum market size is projected to be valued at US$ 316.0 billion in 2023 and is expected to rise to US$ 500 billion by 2033. The sales of molybdenum are expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period.

Given its high electrical conductivity, molybdenum is increasingly being used in electronics, electrical devices, and medical equipment, which is driving growth in the global molybdenum market.

Rising adoption of molybdenum in thermal spray coatings and the aerospace and defense sector is expected to drive growth in the global molybdenum market from 2023 to 2033.

Molybdenum is also used in material processing equipment and high-temperature furnaces, which are expected to drive growth in the global molybdenum market. Molybdenum is not suitable for continuous service at temperatures above 500°C in an oxidizing atmosphere unless protected by an adequate coating, which is another factor that is expected to impede growth in the global molybdenum market over the forecast period.

The rising demand for molybdenum and its alloys in consumer devices is expected to create numerous market opportunities.
