Company Information

  • Detailed analysis and profiling of additional market players

The antimony market size is projected to reach USD 2.37 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.0% between 2018 and 2023. The growth of the antimony market can be attributed to the increasing use of antimony in the chemical industry. In the chemical industry, antimony is prominently used in flame synergist, catalyst, and stabilizer. The automotive industry is the second-largest end-use industry of antimony. Antimony is used in lead acid batteries in the automotive sector.

The flame retardant segment is projected to be the largest application segment of the antimony market during the forecast period, in terms of both value and volume, owing to the high demand for antimony trioxide as a flame synergist in plastics, furniture, mattresses, fabrics, and others.

China is the major exporter of antimony. Antimony shipments from China are sometimes delayed owing to stringent scrutiny on exports through the border with Vietnam. The geopolitical situation along the borders of China and Vietnam often leads to the shutdown of antimony exports on the Vietnam-China border. This border area is also a popular smuggling route, which further attracts more scrutiny. The Vietnam-China border is, thus, under multiple layers of scrutiny and suppliers find it difficult to export. Thus, overcoming geopolitical tensions to enable smoother supply of antimony is a big challenge for stakeholders in the antimony market

Antimony Market

APAC is the largest market for antimony. The market in the region is driven by the high demand in flame retardant, plastic additives, and automotive lead acid batteries applications. In APAC, China, Australia, Tajikistan, and Myanmar are the major producers of antimony. The largest reserves of antimony are found in China. Around 70% of antimony is produced by China. The Chinese government is continuously tightening environmental regulations and beefing up its monitoring capabilities regarding antimony production, import, and export. 

Antimony is used in various applications such as flame retardants, lead acid batteries, plastics additives catalyst, glass & ceramics and others.

Flame Retardant

Flame retardants are used for reducing the hazardous effect of fire mishaps. Flame retardants stop the fire by interacting with the fire cycle in the gaseous phase and stop the chemical chain reaction. Antimony trioxide often works in synergy with halogenated flame retardants. These flame retardants are used in flame retarding furniture, mattresses, fabrics, plastics, circuit boards, and wiring.

Lead Acid Batteries

Antimony is used as an alloying agent with lead in certain parts of a battery where strength, corrosion resistance, and creep resistance are required. Antimony provides strength to lead and simplifies and speeds up the casting of grids. They are used in some countries in automotive batteries. However, the use of antimony in automotive batteries is declining owing to high maintenance and emergence of new technologies such as lithium-ion battery.

Plastic Additives

Plastics additives are chemicals which are used to polymerize, process, or to modify the properties of plastics. Antimony is used as stabilizer and catalyst in plastics additives

Antimony is used as a stabilizer in many common plastics that are susceptible to degradation by heat and ultraviolet light (UV). For instance, antimony is used as a stabilizer in PVC production. PVC is used in commodity plastics, food wrap, water bottles, artificial leather, toys, electrical wire & cable insulation, and drainage and water supply pipe. Antimony mercaptides are used as heat stabilizers for PVC.

Antimony in the form of trioxide or triacetate is used as a polycondensation catalyst in the polymerization of PET. PET is used widely in commodity plastic used in bottles, films, food packaging, and many other products. It can also be used with germanium dioxide, as catalysts for PET.

Glass & Ceramics

Antimony is used as a fining agent/decolorant/antisolarant for high-quality transparent glass. For this application, antimony is used in the form of antimony oxide and sodium antimonate. They are used in the display screen of cathode ray tube (CRT) used in computers and television receivers. Antimony is also used as an opacifier in the ceramic industry.
