Pune, India, April 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global niobium market size is expected to gain momentum owing to the rising demand for steel in various applications during the forecast period. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights™ in an upcoming report, titled, “Niobium Market, 2021-2028.”

Niobium is a chemical element with the symbol Nb and atomic number 41. It is a soft, gray, ductile metal that is often used as an alloying element in steel and other materials. Niobium has a high melting point and is resistant to corrosion and oxidation, making it useful in many industrial applications. Niobium is found in minerals such as columbite and pyrochlore, and is typically extracted through a series of complex processes involving acid leaching, solvent extraction, and precipitation. It is used in a variety of applications, including the production of superconducting magnets, capacitors, and electronic components
