Higher Electric Vehicles Production Favoring Nano-Particle Nickel Hydroxide Market Surpass US$ 5.5 Bn by 2031

As per the newly released data by Fact.MR, the ni-MH nickel hydroxide market size is estimated to surpass US$ 3 Bn in 2021. The overall demand is projected to increase at 6.2% CAGR between 2021 and 2031, reaching a market valuation of around US$ 5.5 Bn by 2031.

The swift expansion of the market is attributable to surging application of nickel hydroxide across various industries such as chemicals and automotive.

Nickel hydroxide is also known as Ni(OH)2. Nickel hydroxide has gained immense popularity due to its electroactive nature. It is extensively used as a positive electrode in nickel-metal hydride and other rechargeable batteries such as nickel-iron (Ni-Fe) and nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) systems. Spherical nickel hydroxide market is expected to witness positive growth with rising application in power battery, high capacity battery and high temperature battery. Furthermore, powder nickel hydroxide market to gain significant traction in the future.

The rapid transition from conventional to electric vehicles has fueled the demand for Nano-Particle nickel hydroxide. It is frequently used in electrical car batteries. Nickel hydroxide-based batteries offer a slew of advantages such as long battery life, utmost reliability, and superior performance. This has propelled the demand for nickel hydroxide-based batteries. These battery chemistries include zinc-nickel hydroxide, nickel cadmium hydroxide & nickel–cobalt hydroxide. These factors will continue to accelerate the growth of nickel hydroxide market through the forecast years.

Besides this, application in the chemical industry as a catalyst for removing impurities from effluent water will remain a chief growth driver. Fact.MR has forecast the increasing investment by governments to improve the capacity of solar energy generation will drive the sales of nickel hydroxide during the assessment period.
