Mass production methods of nickel powder involve nano-chemical vapor deposition and nickel carbonyl nickel powder composition methods. These require sophisticated equipment, and large amounts of nano-powders of nickel. Carbonyl nickel powder has other widespread applications in manufacturing nickel cadmium, nickel hydrogen battery, filters, war industry, etc.
As portable appliances, these have widespread applications for various mobile communications equipment, smart electrical instruments and meters, using nickel metal hydride as source. The manufacturers are incorporating nickel-cadmium batteries for enhancing performance of electric cars. The applications of these batteries offer safe and reliable power supply.
Carbonyl nickel powder when made in the form of ultra-fine particles find large applications in powder metallurgy industry, electronic materials and porous metal filter materials as it has unique conducting and magnetic properties. All nickel powders made by versatile nickel carbonyl gas process have good processing patch properties that can be easily measured by the producer to allow complete traceability and take responsibility for performance consistency. Thus, manufacturers can achieve the certification ISO 9002, as mandated in the automotive industry which creates abundant growth opportunities in the international market with a special focus in China.
However manufacturers and key market players have to work in collaboration to address the concern associated with the use of nickel and nickel powders such as carbonyl nickel powder. The European Union had classified nickel metal as a Category 3 suspect carcinogen, based on some animal tests. However, recent industrial developments have seen nickel industry getting positive feedback. A recent study earlier this year by the American Congress of Government Hygienists has clarified nickel metal not being harmful to human exposure as it has been as ‘not suspected as a human carcinogen’ in the U.S. This creates some positive news for carbonyl nickel powder industry.
Recently, Prof Research Reports has added a report titled “GLOBAL AND CHINESE CARBONYL NICKEL POWDER INDUSTRY, 2009-2019 MARKET RESEARCH REPORT”, which offers an in-depth insight into key drivers and restraining factors, competitive landscape scenario, profile of key manufacturers along with market estimations of key segments across different geographies.
