The report "Antimony Market by Product Type (Trioxides, Alloys), Application (Flame Retardants, Plastic Additives. Lead-Acid Batteries, Glass & Ceramics), End-Use Industry (Chemical, Automotive, Electrical & Electronics), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023", The antimony market is projected to grow from the estimated USD 1.77 billion in 2018 to USD 2.37 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.0% between 2018 and 2023. The demand for antimony, particularly in flame retardant application, has increased gradually. The use of antimony in catalyst used in polyethylene terephthalate (PET) production has also witnessed growth.

The antimony trioxide (ATO) segment is projected to witness highest CAGR during the forecast period.

ATO dominated the overall antimony market in 2017. ATO is widely used in flame retardant in many industries. In addition, ATO is also used as catalyst and stabilizer in plastic production. Other minor uses of ATO include glass & ceramics, pigments, solders, bearing metals, and semiconductors, among others.
