Tungsten Carbide Market to be Dominated by Automotive Industry through 2024

Increasing research & development activities, superior properties as compared to conventional materials, to boost the global Tungsten Carbide market through 2024.


According to TechSci Research report, Global Tungsten Carbide Market By End-User, By Application, By Region, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2024’’, the global tungsten carbide market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 4.8% during the forecast period. The market is mainly driven by increasing research & development activities to augment the growth in technology and superior properties compared to conventional materials.

Tungsten carbide (WC) is basically a chemical compound containing equal parts of tungsten and carbon atoms. In its most basic form, WC is a fine grey powder, however it can be pressed and formed into shapes through the process of sintering for applications in industrial machinery, cutting tools, armour-piercing rounds, among others. Notably, the market for tungsten carbide has been segmented into end-user, application and region. Based on application, the market has been categorized as cemented carbide, industrial alloys, mill products, jewellery, surgical tools, others (Tipping Trekking, Ski Poles). Notably, tungsten carbide is a popular material in jewellery manufacturing, on account of its high resistance to scratching and the hardness of the material) and is expected to register fastest growth during forecast period. Cemented carbide application led the tungsten carbide market in 2018 holding a market share of approximately 61% by value owing to the growing demand for metal cutting tools in machinery. Despite these positive attributes, the tungsten carbide market is anticipated to be inhibited by its relatively high cost when compared to other metal carbides.
