Tungsten carbide is a versatile material because of its remarkable hardness, strength, and high temperature resistance. Owing to these characteristic properties, it is pressed or sintered into different forms, including seals, inserts, cutting knives, cutting tools, machinery parts, discs, wear parts, dies, punches, and blanks, for applications in various end markets. Tungsten carbide is three times harder than steel. The hardness of tungsten carbide falls in between 8.5 and 9 on the Mohs hardness scale, which is next only to diamond. In addition, tungsten carbide shows good resistance to flame, water, organic solvents, oxidation, strong acids, strong alkalis, weak alkalis, and wear and friction. Such dynamic properties of tungsten carbide are expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.

As per Technavio, the increasing demand from mining and construction industries will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This research report also analyzes other significant trends and market drivers that will influence market growth over 2020-2024.

Tungsten Carbide Market: Increasing Demand from Mining and Construction Industries

The machinery and tools used in the mining and construction industry are used under harsh conditions, as a result of which there is a significant amount of wear and tear of tools and devices. Tungsten carbide with its high toughness, strength, and durability is ideal to withstand these harsh conditions. Moreover, the growth in the mining and construction industries in developing countries, especially in China, India, Malaysia, and Japan, along with increasing urbanization is expected boost the demand for residential and commercial buildings. This is expected to increase the global sale of construction equipment, resulting in high demand for tungsten carbide during the forecast period.

"Factors such as the emerging applications of tungsten carbide, and the vast reserves of tungsten ores in China will have a significant impact on the growth of the tungsten carbide market value during the forecast period," says a senior analyst at Technavio.
