Ammonium paratungstate is a white colored crystalline salt of tungsten and ammonium. It is available in the powder form. Generally, ammonium paratungstate is obtained by separating tungsten from various ores. It is produced from the ammonium solution of tungstic acid. After preparation of ammonium, the paratungstate is heated till the desired decomposition temperature reaches 6000C in order to produce tungsten oxide and tungsten elemental powder. Tungsten powder is used in various applications such as tungsten alloys, bars, and wires.
Rise in demand for universal intermediate products, such as ammonium paratungstate, for the production of tungsten derivatives owing to its excellent chemical and physical properties is a key factor anticipated to fuel the ammonium paratungstate market in the near future. Increase in demand for tungsten alloys in the manufacture of superior cutting tools, drilling, and mining equipment is expected to propel the ammonium paratungstate market during the forecast period. The market is estimated to experience significant disparity in terms of demand and supply, specifically from tungsten manufacturers, due to the uncertainty of international prices of ammonium paratungstate. This is projected to hamper the demand for ammonium paratungstate in the near future.
Ammonium Paratungstate Market: Segmentation
Based on type, the global ammonium paratungstate market can be bifurcated into pseudo-rhombic needle and triclinic plate. The triclinic plate segment is likely to be the dominant segment during the forecast period. The triclinic plate is highly used to manufacture tungsten powder and oxides for various metal applications. This is expected to boost the demand for ammonium paratungstate in the next few years. Based on end-user industry, the ammonium paratungstate market can be segregated into aerospace, hard metal, electronics, ceramics, and chemical. The hard metal segment is anticipated to account for prominent share of the market during the projected period. Rise in usage of ammonium paratungstate in the manufacture of tungsten carbide, cutting tools, and metal alloys is a key factor anticipated to fuel the demand for ammonium paratungstate during the forecast period. Hard metal is also widely used in steel cutting, boring, and other metalworking applications. Thus, ammonium paratungstate is estimated to be a highly attractive product type during the forecast period.
