November 20, 2009

NEW YORK, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ — Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue.

Tungsten – A Worldwide Market Review

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164500/Tungsten—A-Worldwide-Market-Review.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=prnewswire

Though tungsten demand is persistently growing owing to rapid development in national defense, civil and war industries throughout the globe, increase in supply shortage has become a major growth dampener for the distinctive metal. The growth of the tungsten market depends largely on new discoveries and explorations.

As cemented tungsten carbide is satisfying changing technical demands in milling and turning operations, it is considered a key material for cutting-tool inserts. Ceramic-metallic compounds and ceramics are being produced and used as replacements for cemented tungsten carbide in order to fulfill varying market demands. Demand for more distinctive metal, tungsten, is persistently growing owing to rapid development in national defense, civil and war industries throughout the globe.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Tungsten: A Worldwide Market Review” by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
