Palladium Market Research, 2031

The global palladium market was valued at $16.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $28.6 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2022 to 2031.

Palladium is a ductile malleable silvery-white element of the platinum metal group. It occurs in nickel-bearing ores. It is used in catalytic converters of automotive vehicles for reducing emissions. Furthermore, it is used in jewelry, dentistry, watchmaking, blood sugar test strips, aircraft spark plugs, surgical instruments, and electrical contacts. Moreover, palladium is also used to make professional transverse (concert or classical) flutes.

The increase in demand for consumer electronics has surged the popularity of palladium-based multi-layer ceramic (chip) capacitors (MLCC) used to store energy in electronic devices such as broadcasting equipment, mobile telephones, computers, electronic lighting and high voltage circuits. For instance, according to a report published by National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency, India’s export of electronic devices is set to increase from $10 billion in 2021 to $120 billion by 2026. This is projected to enhance the demand for palladium in the growing electronics sector; thus fuelling the market growth. Furthermore, the rise in disposable income, surge in population, and increase in urbanization has created a massive demand for regular and advanced electronic devices such as washing machines, smartphones, televisions, computers, and others where palladium-based MLCC is widely used in integrated circuits. For instance, according to data published by International Data Corporation (IDC), the worldwide shipments for smart home devices have reached 801.5 million units in 2020 which is a 4.5% increase over 2019. This may propel the growth of the palladium market during the forecast period.

However, palladium is extracted commercially as a by-product of nickel and then refined further which requires highly sophisticated machines. These factors together have restrained manufacturers with less investment potential to enter into palladium market; thus, hampering the market growth.

On the contrary, palladium is used as principal metal in jewelry due to the rise in price of platinum and gold. Furthermore, it is used in dentistry as an alloy of dental amalgam to increase metallic luster and decrease corrosion. Moreover, changes in prospects of investments in palladium have also contributed to the growth of the market. These factors are predicted to create remunerative opportunities for the expansion of the palladium market in the future.

The palladium market is segmented into Application and End-Use Industry, and region. By application, it is fragmented into catalytic converter, ceramic capacitors, jewelry, hydrogenation/dehydrogenation reactions, and others. By end use industry, it is classified into automotive, chemical and petrochemical, electronics, and others. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The major companies profiled in this report include Alfa Aesar, China North Industries Corp (NORINCO), Indian Platinum Pvt. Ltd, Manilal Maganlal & Company, Norilsk Nickel, Northam Platinum Limited, Otto Chemie Pvt. Ltd., Platinum Group Metals Ltd, Sibanye-Stillwater, Southern Palladium Limited, Vale, and Vineeth Precious Catalysts Pvt. Ltd.

Palladium Market by Region

The Asia-Pacific palladium market size is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period and accounted for 49.4% of palladium market share in 2021. This is attributed to rise in China's electronic sector which has forced the palladium manufacturers to produce more efficient MLCC used in various consumer electronic products. Furthermore, countries such as Japan and Taiwan have a large electronics industry base and consumer electronics appliances industry which in turn has enhanced the performance of palladium market in the Asia-Pacific region.

Palladium Market by Application

In 2021, the catalytic converter segment was the largest revenue generator, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. This is attributed to the increase in transportation activities which in turn has led the automotive sector in both developed and developing economies to witness a significant growth where palladium is widely used in catalytic converter of cars, trucks, and other vehicles for reducing vehicle emission. Furthermore, the increasing regulatory norms put forward by several government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), and others for reducing the vehicle emissions may propel the demand for palladium-based catalytic converters.

Palladium Market by End Use Industry

By end use industry, the automotive segment dominated the global market in 2021, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during forecast period. This is attributed to increase in disposable income and rise in original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) which in turn leads the automotive industry to witness a significant growth where palladium is widely employed in catalytic converters of cars, trucks, and other vehicle for emission reduction purposes.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE GLOBAL PALLADIUM MARKET

  • The novel coronavirus is an incomparable global pandemic that has spread to over 180 countries and caused huge losses of lives and the economy around the globe.
  • The palladium market has been negatively impacted due to the wake of COVID-19 pandemic owing to its dependence on electronics, automotive, aerospace, and other sectors. According to an article published by The Economic Times, the exports of electronic devices such as computers, smartphones, and others have dipped due to supply chain issues.
  • Also, several electronics companies have either shutdown or shrank their operations due to the risk of infections among the workforce where palladium is used as multi-layer ceramic (chip) capacitors (MLCC). This has temporarily hampered the demand for palladium market amid the COVID-19 period.  
  • In addition, the falling income of customers has led to contraction in demand for palladium-based catalytic converters among the automotive sectors. For instance, according to a report published by Auto News, the sales of passenger cars saw a 30% decline in March 2020 as compared to March 2019, owing to lockdowns and shutdowns of auto plants.    
  • In addition, the travel restrictions imposed by the governments of various countries have led the aerospace & aviation sectors to witness temporary downfall.
  • However, the rising sale of smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other consumer electronic devices have reported a rise in sales during the first quarter of 2021. This is anticipated to enhance the performance of palladium market among consumer electronics segments post COVID-19 scenario.
