Key Market Trends
Growing Demand from Electronic and Metal Plating Industries
Gold potassium cyanide (KCN) is an important gold source used in electrolytic gold plating and electroplating of other metals. KCN also finds its applications in electronic devices because of its excellent properties.
Gold electroplating is mostly carried out to obtain long-lasting decorative finishes and in some cases to improve electric contact and conductivity. Jewelry, fancy goods such as handbags, optical frames, power compacts, and costumes jewelry pen cases, plumbing fixtures are few applications of gold electroplating.
Properties of electroplated coatings of gold are high conductivity, excellent resistance to corrosion, low contact resistance, and remarkable ability to form very good thermocompression bonds.
Due to these properties, the electronic Industry has a strong relation with KCN. KCN has become a valuable element in the fabrication of microelectronic and electronic devices such as calculators, transistors, and diodes.
Larger items such as heat sinks, heater, springs, wires connectors, printed circuits are the common applications for gold potassium cyanide.
Recently, the outbreak of COVID-19 in all regions is expected to decrease the demand for gold potassium cyanide from the metal and electronic industries in the short term.
Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market
Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global market owing to the highly developed electronic sector in China, Korea, and Japan and growing demand for precious metals like gold in countries such as India for various reasons.
Electronic component manufacturing Industries have been consuming KCN for different applications such as flexible printed circuits and printed circuit boards, semiconductors, diodes, and other electronic chips that are used in electronic devices.
According to the World Gold Council (WGC), China is the largest consumer of gold in 2019. Luxury watches and jewelry segment stands top and is also the fastest growing segment in the consumption of gold. This reason is expected to increase the demand for KCN from the Asia-Pacific region.
Factors like increasing urbanization, growing connectivity, combined with the usage of advanced technology in the manufacturing of safety technologies and infotainment systems, are boosting the demand for KCN from various electronic devices.
Growth in aerospace, metal plating industries, and the electronic end-user industries in the Asia-Pacific region are expected to drive the market for gold potassium cyanide through the years to come
The continuous growth in the medical sector, increasing demand from automobile and aerospace and defense sectors, are expected to drive the market for gold potassium cyanide through the years to come.
The global gold potassium cyanide market is fragmented in nature with many players competing in the market. Some of the major companies are Alfa Aesar, Spectrum Chemical, Bangalore Refinery Pvt Ltd, The Metalor Group, and Legor Group, among others.
