Market overview

Global Iridium Metal Market Expected to reach a high CAGR of 9.90% By 2026: DataM Intelligence

Iridium is a hard, brittle, and lustrous platinum group metals which high stability in extreme temperature and chemical environments. Iridium is considered the most corrosion pure metal because of its resistance to attack from salts, oxides, mineral acids and aqua regia. Iridium also has high melting points and superior mechanical strength at higher temperature.

Market Dynamics

Global iridium metal market is anticipated to grow owing to growing demand from end-use industry, stringent government regulations over carbon emissions, and increased adoption of consumer electronics. However, high cost and socio-economic factors in iridium mining might hamper the market growth. Growing investment within automotive sector related to iridium spark plugs would provide lucrative opportunities for iridium metal market in coming years. For instance, In March 2017, Autolite announced its Iridium XP Enhanced Alloy Technology spark plug delivers optimum performance and a more focused ignition for better overall ignitability.
