Tungsten Carbide Market
Metal carbides play a vital role in end use industries, due to their valuable properties. Globally, they play
a dynamic role in many areas of material science, physics and chemistry. These metal carbide are
available in various sizes and shapes, and offer a variety of properties, such as such as hardness, stiffness,
etc. Tungsten carbide is one of these metal carbides and exhibits the aforementioned properties. It is
produced by the reaction of tungsten hexachloride with methane or methanol, which is the source of
carbon in the reaction. Tungsten carbide is an inorganic chemical compound, represented by the
chemical formula WC and physically, it is in the form of a fine grey powder. The formation of tungsten
carbide involves an equal number of carbon and tungsten atoms. In terms of properties, tungsten carbide
is much stiffer than steel and denser than titanium. Its hardness is comparable with precious metals, such
as ruby, sapphire and corundum. Owing to tungsten carbide’s high resistivity to abrasion, it is widely used
in the manufacturing industry for cutting tools. The only drawback in the application of tungsten carbide
is that it can decompose at high temperatures and separate into its initial form, i.e. as tungsten and a
Tungsten carbides are progressively becoming a part of our daily lives and it is anticipated that their
application will increase significantly in the coming future, as they are being produced in large quantities
for usage in a diverse variety of products. Growing research & development activities to enhance growth
in technology are anticipated to drive the tungsten carbide market, and furthermore support its
application in ammunition, jewellery and others over the forecast period.

Tungsten Carbide Market: Dynamics
Increasing high quality demand in end use industries is expected to drive demand for the tungsten
carbide market during the forecast period. Superior properties of final finished products of tungsten
carbide are expected to fuel demand for the tungsten carbide market in the future. Tungsten carbide has
become a popular material in the manufacturing of jewellery, due to its high resistance to scratching and
the hardness of the material. Despite these positive attributes, the tungsten carbide market is expected
to be restrained by its relatively high cost when compared to other metal carbides. Tungsten carbide is a
good replacement for uranium in the manufacturing of ammunition and in many other end use
applications. Therefore, the lack of availability of uranium in some regions, and its severe ill effects on the
human body is expected to create a significant opportunity for tungsten carbide manufactures.
