Zirconium represents an obscure, but a vital element with immense potential for comprehensive spectrum of applications. Generally found in zircon, the element is an indispensable component of nuclear power facilities, mobile phones, paints, ceramics, catalytic convertors and dialysis equipment. In recent years, zirconium compounds have gained extensive acceptance in a broad range of applications such as kidney dialysis, pigment coating, coated paper for packaging of frozen food, thixotropic paints and paint driers. Further insights into the chemistry of zirconium extended its use to sophisticated ceramic or oxide applications, with thermal barrier coatings, catalysts, solid electrolytes and piezo electrics being popular application areas for zirconium ceramics. Based on its unique chemical and physical characteristics, zirconium is bound to find use in emerging applications, including sustainable and more efficient clean technologies. Maturing long term contracts, increasing popularity of zircon flour, emergence of innovative applications as well as vertical integration in the Zirconium market are some of the on-going trends in the industry. Some of the growth inhibitors include low pigment plant capacity utilization, radiological concerns, exchange rate fluctuation as well as other disruptions apart from threat from substitute materials, price fluctuations, related health issues and its outright elimination from use in product formulations such as TV glass.
