A small amount of gadolinium in alloys of iron and chromium can improve resistance and oxidation. Moreover, this metal is used as green phosphors for colour television picture tubes and to make gadolinium yttrium garnets which find their application in microwaves. The ability to absorb neutrons makes it useful for its application in the core of a nuclear reactor. Gadolinium compounds are used by medical devices, particularly MRI, for diagnosing cancerous tumours. Gadolinium is also used for making data storage disks, magnets and electric components.
Growing demand for medical equipment will boost the demand for gadolinium as it is used as a contrast medium by doctors to improve the visibility of human internal body structures. Growing investment in nuclear energy as an alternative to meet the energy demand in the Asia Pacific region will augment the demand of gadolinium and its wide range of applications. However, stringent government regulations, higher cost of extraction, refining, fabricating and research and development will hinder the growing demand for Gadolinium. In addition to it, the risk of serious illness, such as Gadolinium Deposition Disease (GDD), Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis, (NSF) and Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy will impede the demand of Gadolinium during the forecast period.
