Breaking News: Technological advancements in polymer-cathode, and improvements in tightening the tantalum supply-chain are the factors that are allowing more designers to choose polymer tantalum capacitors over traditional solid tantalum capacitors.
The market was valued at USD XX million in 2016 and is projected to reach USD XX million by 2022, registering a CAGR of XX%, during 2017-2022 (the forecast period).
Tantalum is a dense silver metal with high ductility, and heat and electricity conducting properties. Due to the formation of a thin film called oxide, the element possess high corrosion-resistance property. Tantalum is not freely found in nature, instead, is present in association with Niobium as single isotopes in minerals like columbine and tantalite. Owing to the similar chemical properties, niobium and tantalum are common substitutes to each other.
Major factors driving the market growth include the growing demand for tantalum in electronics industry, and extensive use of tantalum alloys in aviation and gas turbine. However, the market faces certain drawbacks, due to the detrimental effects of tantalum powder, which may act as a roadblock to the tantalum market growth.
The global tantalum market has been segmented on the basis of product and applications. Based on product type, the market has been segmented into chemical refining, electrolysis & fabrication, metalworking, anode powder and wire, superalloy, sputtering targets. In 2016, anode power and wire dominated the market, with a share of XX%, owing to XX. The market, based on application, has been segmented into capacitors, carbide cutting tools and wear parts, turbine and aircraft structural parts, medical implants, optical coatings, and thin film resistors. In 2016, capacitors segment dominated the market with a share of XX%.
Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America, South America, Middle East & Africa, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
