Global MgB2 powder market trend 2022-2030 What is Magnesium Boride MgB2 Powder? by Newstiohardiman

Hasad Foods, the agricultural investment arm of Qatar's sovereign wealth fund, said the government would increase its grain reserves from 250,000 tons to 300,000 tons in the near future, which is enough to feed the population for six months.  

With a lot of deserts, Qatar suffers from water shortages, and Qatar depends on food imports for a long time. Recently, the ongoing tension in Ukraine has caused global food supply tension and rising prices.

In addition to that, the geopolitical situation also affects the supply and prices of many commodities like the MgB2 powder.

Introduction to Magnesium Boride MgB2 Powder
Magnesium diboride or magnesium boride, chemical formula MgB2, is an ionic compound with a hexagonal crystal structure.
It is an intercalated compound with alternating layers of magnesium and boron. The magnesium atomic layer has a triangular structure, and the boron atomic layer has a regular hexagonal honeycomb structure, which is similar to graphite.
Magnesium diboride is a hard and brittle substance with poor ductility.
 

Superconductivity of Magnesium Diboride MgB2 Powder
Researchers discovered in 2001 that the seemingly unremarkable magnesium boride turns into a superconductor at temperatures slightly closer to the absolute temperature of 40K (-233 ° C). Its transition temperature is almost twice that of other similar superconductors, and its actual operating temperature is 20 to 30K. The temperature can be cooled by liquid neon, liquid hydrogen, or a closed circulating freezer. These methods are simple and cost-effective compared to industrial cooling of niobium alloys (4K) with liquid helium.
Once doped with carbon or other impurities, magnesium boride is even better than niobium alloys at maintaining superconductivity in the presence of a magnetic field or current. Potential applications include superconducting magnets, power transmission lines, and sensitive magnetic field detectors.

Applications of Magnesium Boride MgB2 Powder
Superconductors:
Superconducting properties and low cost make magnesium diboride attractive in a variety of applications. For these applications, MgB2 powder is compressed into the wire with silver metal (or 316 stainless steel), sometimes through a powder in tube process to make tapes.
Thin coatings can be used in superconducting rf cavities to minimize energy loss and reduce the inefficiency of liquid helium cooling niobium cavities. 
Due to the low cost of its components, MgB2 is expected to be used in superconducting medium and low field magnets, motors and generators, fault current limiters and current leads.
 
Propellants, explosives, fireworks: 
Unlike the element boron, which burns incompletely through a glassy oxide layer that impedes oxygen diffusion, magnesium diboride burns completely when ignited in oxygen or in a mixture with an oxidant. Therefore, magnesium boride has been proposed as a ramjet fuel. In addition, the use of MgB2 in explosive-enhanced explosives and propellants has been proposed for the same reason. It was recently demonstrated that decoy flares containing magnesium diboride/PTFE/FLUORO rubber improved spectral efficiency by 30-60% compared to classic magnesium/Teflon/fluororubber (MTV) payloads. The application of magnesium diboride in rocket propulsion was also studied, where the compound was mixed in paraffin fuel particles to improve mechanical properties and combustion characteristics.

Since February, gold has enjoyed a smooth upward run on the back of surging US inflation and the brewing of war. While expectations of rate rises have also risen in tandem over this period, gold had been largely pre-priced and the underlying driver of tightening expectations had come from inflation continuing to rise to record highs. The risk aversion caused by the continued tension in the war also provided an important short-term support for gold. This will have a certain impact on the price of the MgB2 powder and the market of the MgB2 powder.
