Niobium appears as a light grey color crystalline metal. It could be found in the earth's crust and in the minerals like columbite and pyrochlore. The niobium has the ability to transforms into a superconductor at cryogenic temperature. Additionally, the product is majorly utilized to provide high strength to low alloy steels, it also offers wear resistance and surface hardness properties. It also has good mechanical properties, due to that it applied for gas pipelines, ships hulls, railroad tracks, and car & truck bodies. Niobium is also used for the production of superconducting magnets, alloys, optical modulators, mobile telephones, glasses, and surface acoustic wave devices.

The increasing demand for steel in various applications will aid to boost the consumption of niobium. The product is utilized in steel as ferroniobium for the production of high strength, and low alloy steel for the pipeline, construction, and automotive industries. It is mainly used in stainless steel. The addition of niobium in the steel not only makes it stronger but also helps to reduce the requirement of steel, thereby decreases the overall cost. The increasing use of lightweight steel in the automotive industry coupled with enhancement in steel manufacturing will help to surge the product demand. Hence, rising product demand will fuel the niobium market growth during the forecast timeline.   

However, the rare availability of niobium causes limited in supply and restrict its adoption in various application. Hence, this іѕ anticipated hindering the market growth.

Key Market Driver -

The rising demand for steel in various application will help to surge the product demand.

Key Market Restraint -

Lack of availability to restrict the market growth
