世界のニッケル市場は2014〜2019年にかけて、約5%の年平均成長率 (CAGR) で成長する見通しです。特に、輸送機械 (スカイバス・モノレール・地下鉄・バスなど) 向けのニッケル需要の増大が市場全体の成長を促しています。他方、新たな代替製品 (クロム・チタンなど) の発見により、ニッケル市場の成長率が引き下げられる可能性もあります。用途別に見るとステンレス鋼・合金鋼向け需要が全体の45%を占めており、また産業別では輸送機械産業が約39%のシェアを有しています。地域別に見ると、急速な工業化による産業機械の需要拡大を受けて、中国・インドなどのアジア諸国が69%ものシェアを占めています。
Technavios market research analyst predicts the global nickel market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. The high demand for nickel in the transportation sector is driving the growth of this market. Nickel is used in the development of urban transportation such as sky buses, monorails, metro rail, and buses.
The discovery of newer substitutes that can replace nickel in a variety of applications is expected to deter the growth of the market. For instance, elements such as chromium are being used in the manufacture of stainless steel. Nickel is being substituted with titanium alloys to limit corrosion in piping that is used for the power and petroleum industries. These alternatives are anticipated to decrease the sales of nickel and limit the market growth during the forecast period.
Nickel is used in the manufacturing of stainless steel and alloy steel. This segment accounted for 45% of the market share during 2014 and is anticipated to grow at a rate of 5% during the forecast period. Nickel is used in most grades of stainless steel due to the strength that is imparted to the steel, which can then be used in construction. Nickel can also handle cryogenic and elevated temperatures.
The transportation and defense sector is the largest consumer of nickel and had a market share of around 39% during 2014. The usage of nickel in this sector is expected to grow at a rate of 5% during the forecast period. Nickel is used in many cars, buses, and trucks in the form of stainless steel. Large tankers of stainless steel and iron-nickel alloys are used to minimize fuel consumption, reduce carbon emissions, and reduce cargo losses.
Asia is the largest consumer of nickel and accounted for 69% of the market shares during 2014. The rapid industrialization and development occurring in this region, especially in China and India, is driving the demand for industrial machinery where nickel is used.
The global nickel market has an oligopolistic market structure. The market is dominated by a few leading companies who have acquired mines and cater to the global demand. Most of the nickel mines are located in Canada, Russia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Burma, and Western Australia.
The leading vendors in the market are
Other prominent vendors in the market include Eramet, JFE Mineral, Lundin Mining, Sherritt, and South 32.
