Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) compound is classified as transition metal dichalcogenide. It occurs in nature as silvery black solid mineral molybdenite. Molybdenum disulfide is well known for its good thermal and chemical stability with the friction coefficient less than 0.1. It also remains unaffected by dilute acids and oxygen. Molybdenum disulfide is a dry /solid lubricant and offers excellent dry lubricity and can resist temperature higher than 350° C. The molybdenum disulfide with the particle size range from 1-100 µm is commonly used as dry lubricant. Molybdenum Disulfide can retain its lubricity even in the case of complete oil loss. It is one of the best known solid lubricants and is used various industries for a smooth functioning of the machines and equipment. Due to its various properties, it is extensively used in military, aerospace and automotive industries. Also, it is an appropriate compound for chassis lubrication for heavy duty service vehicles such as trucks and construction vehicles. It is widely used in automotive systems such as ball joints, wheel bearing, pedal shafts, steering linkages and control arms for lubrication. It is also used extensively in greases and grease like products used for lubrication. Also, it is used in resin bonded and impingement coatings and sputtered coatings.

Molybdenum Disulfide is also recommended for heavily loaded bearings in industrial and manufacturing plants to protect the bearings from the corrosion as well as it also provide oxidation protection.

Global Industry Analysis 2012 – 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 – 2027
Molybdenum Disulfide Market:Market Dynamics

Molybdenum disulfide has its application in end use industry such as Aerospace, automotive, chemical etc. Due to the growth of these end use industries, the demand for molybdenum disulfide will also upsurge over the forecast period. From a macro-economic perspective global economic growth and growth in industry value added will also have a significant impact on the market growth over the forecast period, as growth of end-use industries for molybdenum disulfide significantly depend upon these factors.

However, the presence of alternatives such as tungsten disulfide (WS2) will restrain the growth of molybdenum disulfide market. Characteristics of molybdenum disulfide such as non-effectiveness for low-temperature application. Further, supply of low-quality products from local competitors can restrain the growth of the global molybdenum disulfide market over the forecast period.
