High-purity Amorphous Boron Market: Introduction
Boron, with an atomic number 5 and denoted by the symbol B, it is a metalloid element, which is not only hard but highly resistant to heat. Boron has two allotropes in the form of amorphous and crystalline. High-purity Amorphous Boron powder is a brown colored powder and is highly reactive when compared to its crystalline counter-parts. Owing to its high reactivity and high heat of combustion, High-purity Amorphous Boron powder is used in fuel-rich propellants for rockets ramjets and igniter formulations. High-purity Amorphous Boron has an advantage over conventional rocket fuels, including aluminum and magnesium and are more preferred as a fuel. Other key application areas for High-purity Amorphous Boron are automotive, pyrotechnic mixtures, manufacture of high-purity metal borides and as an additive is high performance ceramics.
High-purity Amorphous Boron Market: Dynamics
The key driving factor for the global High-purity Amorphous Boron market is the in solid-fuel rocket propellant & explosives. The global government expenditure on government expenditures in space programs is projected to grow at an average annual growth rate of around 2% in the short term forecast. This growing expenditures where the U.S. accounts for a major share followed by China, Russia, Japan and emerging India, will further push the demand growth for High-purity Amorphous Boron. As mentioned earlier, High-purity Amorphous Boron powder is a much preferred additive for fuel-rich rocket propellants and explosives. Other key applications of High-purity Amorphous Boron includes its use in automotive and pyrotechnic mixtures. The global automotive industry is on a rise since its major downfall during the global economic recession in 2008-2009. Since then the automotive industry has experienced newer technologies, safety standards and government regulations. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 1.35 million people die in road crashes, with major deaths seen in low- and middle-income economies. Owing to this countries are adopting safety norms, which requires manufacturers to confirm airbags and seat-belts are fitted in all vehicles. These safety norms will further drive demand growth for High-purity Amorphous Boron which is used as an igniter in airbags and belt pre-tensioners.
