Unlimited Market Potential for Molybdenum Disulfide in 2032: $579.5 million Business Opportunities and Future Prospects for Molybdenum Disulfide

Jan 16,2024 by No Comments

The global molybdenum disulfide (moS2) market size in 2022 is 442.4 million US dollars, and it is expected to achieve a rapid compound annual growth rate of 2.8% in revenue during the forecast period. The main driving factors include the increasing popularity of lubricants in various industries, the increasing usage of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and lasers in electronic applications, and the increasing awareness of the application of molybdenum disulfide in water treatment.

Molybdenum disulfide is an inorganic polymer composed of one molybdenum atom and two sulfur atoms, with two basic forms: powdered MoS2 and crystalline MoS2. These forms are crucial in high-tech industries such as automotive, aerospace, defence, construction, chemical, and petrochemical. Especially in the automotive industry, due to the increasing demand for lubricants and the unique temperature and pressure characteristics of molybdenum disulfide, it is experiencing significant growth.

Molybdenum disulfide is an inorganic substance with the chemical formula MoS2. It is the main component of molybdenite, appearing as a black solid powder with a metallic lustre.

The characteristics of Molybdenum Disulfide:

  1. Physical properties: The density of molybdenum disulfide is 4.80g/cm ³ (14 ℃), melting point 1185 ℃, and Mohs hardness between 1.0 and 1.5.
  2. Chemical properties: Molybdenum disulfide has excellent lubrication performance, especially suitable for high-temperature and high-pressure environments. In addition, it also has diamagnetism and can be used as a linear OPC and a semiconductor to display P-type or N-type conductivity, with rectification and energy conversion functions. The temperature gradually oxidises around 400 ℃ in the atmosphere, and the oxide is molybdenum trioxide.
  3. Stability: Molybdenum disulfide has good chemical and thermal stability. Insoluble in water, dilute acids, and concentrated sulfuric acid, but soluble in hot sulfuric acid. It does not react with other acids, bases, solvents, petroleum, synthetic lubricants, etc.
