Abstract

Osmium Market: Overview

Osmium is obtained through extraction of platinum metal from its ores. It is found as an alloy with iridium. It is bluish grey in color and is one of the densest elements found in nature. Symbolically it is represented as Os and has atomic number 76. Physically, osmium is hard, brittle, and lustrous in nature. Its luster is retained even at high temperatures. Osmium is toxic in nature and undergoes a chemical reaction to form osmium tetroxide when exposed to air. Owing to the toxicity of osmium, there are numerous regulations on the use of osmium. Osmium is used to make alloys since it induces properties such as hardness and corrosion resistance into the alloy.

Osmium Market: Facts

An international team of scientists from the University of Bayreuth probed certain samples under extreme conditions. The team made use of the extreme X-rays from the synchrotron resources PETRA III at APS in the U.S and DESY, ESRF in France. After the experiment, they found that osmium showed extraordinary structural stability and retained their crystalline structure even at high pressures.

Osmium Market: Segmentation

The global osmium market is segmented into its form, grade, application, and geography. Based on form, the market is divided into granules, rod, and pellets. On the basis of grade, the market is segregated into analytical grade and technical grade. Based on application, the market is categorized into fountain pen nibs, instrumental pivots, electrical contacts, and others such as gramophone, compass needles, and clock bearings.

Osmium Market: Growth Factors

The chemical industry has been exhibiting a sustainable development globally. The growing use of osmium for innovative medical applications is expected to drive the demand for the osmium market. Various research institutes have been using osmium in optical and electron microscopy, fingerprint detection, and in staining fatty tissues which have boosted the market demand for osmium. Alloys made from osmium are used in manufacturing surgical implants and instruments and they are greatly used in the chemical industry due to its volatile and strongly oxidizing nature. These applications of osmium have positively influenced the market demand. Price of osmium remains stagnant which further favors market growth. However, toxic nature of osmium necessitates efficient storage facilities. This may cause a hindrance to the market growth in the coming periods.
