Molybdenum Disulfide Market Size, Growth Opportunities, Revenue Share Analysis, and Forecast to 2030

Comments · 90 Views

Key factors driving market revenue growth are increasing demand for lubricants that efficiently work in inert and moisture-free environments in industrial settings

According to the latest report by Reports and Data, global molybdenum disulfide market size is expected to reach USD 589.24 Million in 2030 and register a CAGR of 3.68% over the forecast period. Molybdenum disulfide is extensively used in helicopter rotor blades, elevators, laser solar cells, semiconductors, warheads, nozzles, and impingement coatings. Increasing demand for molybdenum disulfide grease in automotive applications is a key factor that will upsurge market revenue growth. Molybdenum disulfide, also known as MoS2, is silvery black inorganic compound that can be used as dry lubricant in paints, dispersions, and coatings. It exhibits various excellent properties such as high tensile strength, low coefficient of friction, radiation protection, and stability in most solvents.

Molybdenum disulfide finds application in petrochemical industry as a catalyst in desulfurization, and in other organic reactions as hydrogenation catalyst. In the electronics industry, it is utilized in ultra-low power transistors, field-effect transistors, photo detectors, and image sensors owing to its semiconductor attributes. Molybdenum disulfide transistors are expected to exceed the performance of silicon-based field-effect transistors in terms of power efficiency, and on/off ratio. MoS2 can protect a component from corrosion when combined with resins or binders. In the medical sector, the potential of molybdenum disulfide nanocomposites in cancer detection, cure, and antibacterial materials is in the stage of research.   

Molybdenum disulfide is widely used in end-use industries such as chemical and petrochemical, automotive, industrial, aerospace and defense, construction, electronics, metal and mining, and others. Chemical and petrochemical industry segment accounted for largest revenue share in the global market in 2021. This can be attributed to growing usage of molybdenum disulfide as solid lubricant and hydro desulfurization catalyst in chemical and petrochemical applications. Asia Pacific market is expected to register fastest CAGR among all regions over the forecast period. Major factors contributing to revenue growth are rapid industrialization, growing automobile industry, and construction sectors in the region.
