Beryllium Hydroxide is an atmospheric hydroxide which dissolves in acids as well as alkalis. The chemical formula of beryllium hydroxide is Be(OH)2. It is white in colour consisting of opaque crystals which are slightly soluble in water. Industrially beryllium hydroxide is formed as a by-product in the extraction of beryllium metal from the ores beryl and bertrandite.
Beryllium is a chemical element which is light, silver-gray, relatively soft metal that is strong but brittle.Beryllium has the highest melting point of the light metals. It displays excellent electrical as well as thermal conductivities and resists attack by concentrated nitric acid, and is nonmagnetic. It has a high permeability to X-rays due to low atomic number. Beryllium occurs in some mineral species, the most significant ones include bertrandite, beryl, chrysoberyl, phenacite, etc.
Beryllium is used mainly as an alloying agent in manufacturing beryllium copper, which is widely used for electrical contacts, springs, spot-welding electrodes, etc. It is also utilized as a structural material in high-speed aircraft, missiles, spacecraft, and communication satellites. Some of the other uses include windshield frame, brake discs, support beams, etc.
Beryllium is also used in nuclear industry and ceramics. It is used in gyroscopes, computer parts, and instruments where lightness, stiffness, and dimensional stability are mandatory. But beryllium and its salts are toxic and must be handled with care. The major factor that propels the growth of the global Beryllium Hydroxide market includes its wide range of applications such as automotive, defence and so on. On the other hand, there are also factors that hamper the growth of the market such as high cost supplementary to extraction techniques and production. In addition, stringent mining regulations also restrain the growth of the global market.
The global Beryllium Hydroxide market is classified on the basis of applications and geography. On the basis of application, the global market is classified as aerospace, automotive, biomedical, defence, electrical and telecommunications.
