Country-Wise Analysis

Why are Sales of Niobium Hydride High in the United States?

The United States is already engaged in the hydrogen economy and technology, and firms have invested millions of dollars to create new revenue generation opportunities from hydrogen gas, majorly in the transportation sector.

In the United States, a majority of the hydrogen produced is used in refining petroleum and producing fertilizers; however, manufacturers are facing complications to supply hydrogen in a particular time frame because the weight and volume of hydrogen storage systems are too high, which results in inadequate vehicle range as compared to other fuel storage systems.

U.S. manufacturers are investing more in niobium hydride extracting plants to supply hydrogen gas in a portable way. U.S.-based companies are investing in the research and development of artificial by-products, such as niobium found in rear mines, which leads to higher costs while importing from different regions.

The North American market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.3% to reach US$ 15.6 million by 2032.

Why Does Brazil Have a Stronghold Over the Niobium Hydride Market?

Brazil is a prominent producer of niobium and almost 98% of the world’s niobium is found in Brazil.

Niobium is used in the creation of alloys, including stainless steel; basically, it improves the strength of alloys, particularly at a lower temperature. The Brazilian niobium hydride market is expected to expand at a CAGR of around 4.7% over the decade.

Prime manufacturers of niobium hydride are investing in new product development to attract refinery and alloy customers. In the Brazilian market, companies are also focusing on an effective supply chain, which, in turn, acts as a growth driver for the sales of niobium hydride in and around the country.
