Global High-purity Lead Market: Introduction
- High-purity lead has 99.99% or higher purity and it has excellent physical and chemical properties including ductility, malleability, and resistance to corrosion. High-purity lead also exhibits good vibration and sound absorption properties, due to which it is primarily used for soldering, production of bearings, and improvement in antifriction properties of metals.
- High-purity lead has high density, which makes it useful as a shield against X-rays and gamma-rays. It is used in X-ray machines and nuclear reactors. High-purity lead is also used as a covering on wires and cables to protect them from corrosion; as a material to absorb sound vibrations; and in the manufacture of ammunitions. Most of the lead used currently is used in the production of lead–acid batteries.
Key Drivers of Global High-purity Lead Market
- High-purity lead is widely used for car batteries, pigments, ammunitions, cable sheathing, weights for lifting, weight belts for diving, lead crystal glass, radiation protection products, and solders. It is often used to store corrosive liquids. It is also sometimes used in the architecture sector for roofing and in windows made of stained glass.
- High-purity lead is a corrosion-resistant metal, due to which it is widely used for pipes, pewter, and paints. It is also used in lead glazes for pottery, insecticides, hair dyes, and as an anti-knocking additive for petrol. However, high-purity lead is known to be detrimental to health, particularly that of children. Hence, it is banned; replaced; or its use is discouraged.
- The high-purity lead market in Asia Pacific is primarily driven by growth of the electric vehicles industry in the region. Furthermore, key players are focused on the development of new methods to produce regenerated lead, which reduces hazards of lead during the production.
