Global Tungsten Carbide Market : Analysis & Forecast,  2016-22

The tungsten carbide market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period between 2016 and 2022 due to the increase in the application areas and end use industries using this material. Its dynamic properties, cost effectiveness, large scale demand from varied end use application verticals, and rapid technological development in this field are some of the factors driving the growth of tungsten carbide market. However, health care & safety issues, and recent economic slowdown in China are restraining the growth of the global tungsten carbide market. As China is one of the leading countries in the global supply and consumption of tungsten carbide, the recent economic slowdown in China had a significantly negative impact on the raw material (tungsten) supply to local and international markets. This in turn has impacted the manufacturing of tungsten carbide from raw tungsten. This has caused the average selling price of tungsten carbide to increase which has affected and hampered its global volume production.

China has been the leader in the supply of tungsten in the global tungsten carbide market. Since the resources of tungsten carbide are majorly located in China, the effect on the economy of China has negatively impacted the raw material (tungsten) supply to local and international market. Hence, this in turn will negatively impact the manufacturing of tungsten carbide from raw tungsten. Also, due to the slowdown of economy, the average selling price of tungsten have increased which has affected and hampered the volume production of tungsten carbide.
