Molybdenum (Mo) is a malleable hard metal having a silvery-white colour and occurring in nature only in combined form (e.g. in wulfenite, molybdenite, powellite, etc.). More than 75% of the molybdenum output is used in the alloys production. The element is either employed in the manufacture of reagents, dyes, fertilizers, reagents, high-temperature wiring, aircraft/missile/automobile parts and a far more. Certain molybdenum compounds act as essential catalysts and pigments.
In 2011, the world production of molybdenum reached 250 thousand tonnes. Global molybdenum consumption is likely to grow by nearly 6% annually through 2019. China, the USA, Chile, Mexico and Peru are top five molybdenum producing countries. Molymet, Codelco, Freeport McMoran, Jinduicheng Molybdenum Group and Southern Copper are known as the behemoths of the molybdenum market.
