The global nickel production volume is projected to reach 2,507 kilo tonnes in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 2.3%, for the period spanning from 2019 to 2023. The factors such as upsurge in energy storage system (ESS), increasing electric vehicles penetration, rising demand for stainless steel, growing use of nickel in batteries and increasing nickel mine production countries are expected to drive the market growth. However, growth of the industry would be challenged by underinvestment in sulphide ores and deficit expanding. A few notable trends include government support, rising NPI capacity, favorable pricing, nickel-intensive technologies and high nickel demand in Europe.

Nickel is widely used in a number of products for consumer, industrial, military, transport/aerospace, marine and architectural applications. Nickel has been commonly used in coins because of its bright, durable and corrosion resistant coatings applied on steel. The biggest use of nickel is as an alloying metal along with chromium and other metals in the production of stainless and heat-resisting steels to increase the tensile strength, toughness and elastic limit of product.

The fastest growing regional market is China, owing to surge in the production capacities of domestic metal extracting plants and increasing trend of industrialists shifting towards high-end metal refining machines over traditional refining machines.

    Nickel belongs to the transition metals and is hard and ductile. Pure nickel, powdered to maximize the reactive surface area, shows a significant chemical activity, but larger pieces are slow to react with air under standard conditions because an oxide layer forms on the surface and prevents further corrosion (passivation). Nickel is used as the cathode material for lithium-ion batteries and used in increasingly large quantities. The demand for nickel base metal in the battery industry is furthe......
