Tungsten carbide is a chemical compound (specifically, a carbide) containing equal parts of tungsten and carbon atoms. It is a dense, metallike substance, light gray with a bluish tinge, that decomposes, rather than melts, at 2,600?C. Tungsten carbide is prepared by heating powdered tungsten with carbon black in the presence of hydrogen at 1,400?–1,600?C. It is used extensively in cutting tool material, mining and drilling tool and wear parts. According to Gen Consulting Company, global tungsten carbide market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period 2020-2026. Growing potential for tungsten carbide in aerospace & defence industry is the chief contributor for the growth of the market.
