The global Nickel Hydroxide industry is growing pervasively, mainly due to the increasing usage of battery-oriented electronic devices over the last few years. The market had evaluated at USD 2298.50 MN in the year 2021 with a CAGR registered over 6% during the period 2020-2030. Nickel hydroxide is an integral chemical compound used in the manufacturing of nickel-cadmium batteries. The increasing demand for nickel in the production of batteries is expected to escalate the market on the global platform.

Recognizing the potential of the market to ascend on further heights in the years to come, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global Nickel Hydroxide industry will reach USD 2,841.91 MN by 2030, registering a 6% CAGR over the forecast period (2020 to 2030). 

In addition to nickel-cadmium batteries, nickel hydroxide is also used as a catalyst in various other chemical reactions. As a result, this substance witness a huge demand across industries, which acts as a key driving force, pushing up the market growth.

Additional factors substantiating the market growth include ever-increasing population, urbanization, and industrialization, across the globe. Improving economic conditions are playing a vital role in the growth of the market, increasing consumers’ purchasing power and the demand for battery-operated electronic devices.

On the other hand, factors such as the highly toxic nature of nickel hydroxide are expected to obstruct the market growth during the anticipated period. 

Nickel Hydroxide is a green, crystalline, inorganic compound that produces toxic gases upon heating. Nickel hydroxide is used in nickel-cadmium batteries and as a catalyst in chemical reactions. Exposure to nickel hydroxide can cause severe dermatitis, skin and asthma-like allergies and affects the lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and neurological system. Nickel hydroxide is a known carcinogen and is associated with an increased risk of developing lung and nasal cancers. (NCI05).

Nickel Hydroxide Global Market – Segmentation

MRFR has segmented its analysis into three key dynamics for the convenience of understanding;

By Applications: Comprises Batteries (Pocket Batteries and Mid-High Rate Batteries) among others.

By Regions: North America, Europe, APAC, and the Rest-of-the-World.

Global Nickel Hydroxide industry – Regional Analysis

The Asia Pacific region accounts for the leading market for nickel hydroxide batteries followed by the North American and European region, respectively. The APAC market is growing steadily due to the presence of several key manufacturers and the growing industrialization in the region. 

Being the largest producer and consumer of the product, the APAC region is estimated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The region will continue with its dominance over the global Nickel Hydroxide industry, continuing with the same trends such as the emphasis on process and product development and the growing application industries in the region.

The Nickel Hydroxide industry in the North American region stands at the second position in terms of size.  Factors substantiating the market growth include the presence of some of the prominent manufacturers in the region equipped with the superior product offering. 

Due to the high consumption of Nickel Hydroxide in the manufacturing of nickel-cadmium batteries, the region is estimated to create a substantial revenue pocket in the global market by the end of the forecast period.

The European region is rapidly emerging as one of the promising markets for nickel hydroxide, globally. The market growth is majorly fostered by the increasing demand and sales of battery-operated electronics, especially in the U.K., France, Italy, and Germany.
