Global Fluorspar Market 2017-2021 - High Demand from Aluminum and Steel Industries Driving the Market
The global fluorspar market to grow at a CAGR of 2.06% during the period 2017-2021.
Global Fluorspar Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One trend in the market is increasing use of fluoropolymers in lithium batteries. In Lithium-ion batteries, also known as Li-ion batteries, fluorspar is used. The growing use of lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles as well as in homes as substitutes to conventional power grids is expected to augment the demand for fluorspar during the forecast period.
According to the report, one driver in the market is high demand from aluminum and steel industries. There has been an increase in the demand for aluminum in the automotive industry. During the aluminum production process, fluorspar is mixed with bauxite and soda ash which forms cryolite. Cryolite is further processed to form aluminum.
The heavy use of aluminum in the automotive industry is projected to remain a key driver for the growth in the global fluorspar market during the forecast period. The growth in the automotive sector can be attributed to the rise in the disposable income and the rise in the GDP worldwide.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is stringent government rules and regulations. The manufacturing of fluorspar encompasses adherence to strict regulations.
