Region :Global | Report ID: FBI108670 | Status : Ongoing



The nickel sulfate market growth is primarily driven by the electroplating industry. It is used in the electroplating industry to provide a durable and corrosion-resistant coating to various metal surfaces. It is also used for nickel plating, essential in the automobile, aerospace, and electronics industries. In addition, nickel sulfate is a crucial component in producing nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) and nickel-cadmium (NiCd) batteries. These batteries are used in various applications, including portable electronics, power tools, and hybrid electric vehicles.

Due to its various applications, the chemical industry also drives the market. In the chemical industry, nickel sulfate is employed as a catalyst in various chemical reactions. It facilitates reactions such as hydrogenation and polymerization, vital in producing plastics, pharmaceuticals, and petrochemicals. Furthermore, it is utilized in the glass industry to produce green and brown-colored glass. It acts as a colorant, giving the glass its distinctive tint.

  • The Chinese government is focusing more on reducing emissions from metal processing plants such as nickel sulfate by introducing strict regulations such as the ‘Toxic and Hazardous Substance Control Act’.

Nickel sulfate is used as a micronutrient in fertilizers to address soil nickel deficiencies. It plays a vital role in plant growth and helps enhance crop yield and quality. In addition, it is used to manufacture electronic components, including transistors, semiconductors, and connectors. It is employed in electroless nickel plating, a process used to deposit nickel on the surfaces of these components to enhance electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance.

The major producers by country are China, Japan, and India in Asia Pacific; the U.S. and Canada in North America; Germany and France in Europe; and Saudi Arabia and UAE in the Middle East.
