The molybdenum market size is projected to be valued at US$ 316.0 billion in 2023 and is expected to rise to US$ 500 billion by 2033. During the projection period, molybdenum sales are expected to expand at a substantial CAGR of 4.7%.

Molybdenum is rapidly being used in electronics, electrical devices, and medical equipment due to its high electrical conductivity, which is driving growth in the global molybdenum market.

From 2023 to 2033, the worldwide molybdenum market is predicted to develop due to the increased use of molybdenum in thermal spray coatings and the aerospace and defense sectors.

Molybdenum is also utilized in high-temperature furnaces and material processing equipment, which are projected to fuel expansion in the global molybdenum market. Molybdenum is not appropriate for continuous operation at temperatures exceeding 500°C in an oxidizing atmosphere unless adequately protected by a coating, which is another issue likely to restrict expansion in the global molybdenum market over the forecast period.

The growing demand for molybdenum and related alloys in consumer electronics is projected to open up a slew of new business prospects.
