This study covers the global market for tantalum materials, including tantalum ores and concentrates and engineered tantalum powder, wire, foil, sheet, bar and rod for consumption in tantalum capacitor anodes, tantalum sputtering targets, superalloys, cemented carbide cutting tools, fabricated mill products and tantalum chemicals and compounds. The study forecasts demand for tantalum based upon its “known reliability” and its unique attributes of capacitance, durability, corrosion and heat resistance; as well as its unique optical properties.
The study addresses key issues facing the industry between 2018 and 2023 including the expected price fluctuations for the metal, including its potential deficit amidst mine closings; stringent legislation and vertical integration within the supply chain. The study forecasts demand for tantalum in capacitor anodes, taking into consideration the projected demand for tantalum capacitors consumed in various portable digital electronics, including smartphones and computer tablets, notebook computers and servers; automotive electronic subassemblies; and consumer electronics such as game consoles; and digital cameras. For forecasting suture requirements, the study takes into consideration the existence and market potential for tantalum displacement by alternative technologies such as high capacitance MLCC and conductive polymer aluminum chip capacitors. It also forecasts tantalum consumption in hard metals, including cemented carbide cutting tools, superalloys, and mill products, amidst expected increases in production of aircraft and automobiles to satisfy increasing demand from emerging economies.
The study also forecasts primary and secondary tantalum supply. Including primary mining operations and their expected expansion. The study also forecasts tantalum from tin mining and slag operations; tantalum from urban mining (Recycling) and tantalum in inventories and makes projections regarding tantalum materials requirements forecasts to satisfy demand in 2023. Tantalum pricing forecasts for tantalum ores and concentrates are given for 2018 through 2023 as are projected volume requirements in each of the market subsets, including capacitor anodes, semiconductor sputtering targets, superalloys (turbine blades), mill products for industrial and chemical processing, cemented carbides and chemicals and compounds. See the table of contents for a complete listing of what is included in this study.
