Market overview of the global nickel market

Technavios market research analyst predicts the global nickel market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. The high demand for nickel in the transportation sector is driving the growth of this market. Nickel is used in the development of urban transportation such as sky buses, monorails, metro rail, and buses.

The discovery of newer substitutes that can replace nickel in a variety of applications is expected to deter the growth of the market. For instance, elements such as chromium are being used in the manufacture of stainless steel. Nickel is being substituted with titanium alloys to limit corrosion in piping that is used for the power and petroleum industries. These alternatives are anticipated to decrease the sales of nickel and limit the market growth during the forecast period.
