Titanate praseodymium target is a metal target available with minimum purity level of 99.9% to 99.999%. Titanate praseodymium target is available in wide range of shapes such as circle, rectangular, wafer, and tubes amongst others, which is used in flat panel display, optical discs, automotive and architectural glass, solar cells, semiconductors, electron microscopy, and others. Wide range of its applications is in turn fueling growth of the titanate praseodymium target market.
The market in Asia Pacific region is expected to witness significant growth in terms of value over the forecast period, owing to growing demand from solar energy end-use industry, which in turn is expected to drive growth of the titanate praseodymium target market. According to the United Nations, World Bank Group, in China, the Renewable Energy Development Project on wind power and solar energy supported the sale of solar powered systems to around 400,000 rural households and institutions in China in 2011.
However, fluctuating prices of raw material is expected to hinder growth of the titanate praseodymium target market. For instance, in 2009, the cost of praseodymium in China was US$ 18 per kg and increased its cost up to US$ 163 per kg in the first quarter of 2012
Furthermore, North America witnessed substantial growth in the global titanate praseodymium target market in 2017. This growth is attributed to growing application of titanate praseodymium target in automotive glass coupled with growth of the automobile industry. According to U.S. International Trade Administration (ITA), the U.S. is the world’s second-largest market for vehicle sales and production. In 2017, the light vehicle sales reached 17.1 million units in the U.S.
