Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Nickel Acetate Market size is poised to cross USD 80 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of nickel acetate was over USD 52 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising demand for the use of nickel acetate in various industries, such as, automobiles, electronics, electrical, aesthetics, and metallurgy. In addition to protection from rust, nickel acetate is used in automotive plating in order to brighten the finish on metal or non-metal parts, and metalize plastic parts to improve their sturdiness. With worldwide car sales growing steadily from around 60 million in the year 2020 to more than 70 million in 2021, as per the latest survey of the automotive industry, the global nickel acetate market is predicted to grow to a significant size.

Nickel acetate is a green crystalline inorganic compound used in textile dyeing processes, electroplating, anodization applications, as an intermediate catalyst, and in surface treatment. The versatility, popularity, and utility in diverse fields of applications of nickel acetate makes it a highly viable market and is forecasted to grow at a considerable market size. For instance, the textile industry in the U.S is the second largest exporter of textile-related products in the world and the exports were valued at around ~USD 28 Billion in 2021, according to the National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO). Therefore, all these factors are anticipated to hike the market growth over the forecast period.

Nickel Acetate Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Advancements in Automobile Industry – Nickel acetate is employed in the manufacture of fasteners, bolts, hydraulic systems, shafts, and other engine components because of features, such as, corrosion resistance, wear and abrasion resistance, and ductility. Increasing improvements in the automobile industry are expected to propel the global nickel acetate market growth. According to the International Trade Administration, China has the world’s largest automobile market in terms of both annual sales and manufacturing output, and the production of vehicles is expected to reach ~35 million vehicles by 2025.
  • Growth of Textile Industry – Nickel Acetate is used as a mordant in textile dyeing to fix the dye onto fabric which is further backed by the growing utilization of digital textile printing ink. The booming textile industry is predicted to propel the nickel acetate market. India alone exported around ~USD 30 billion worth of textiles between April and December of 2021.
  • Advancements in Aerospace Industry - Nickel-based plating has exceptional adhesion and corrosion protection and provides a uniform coating of thickness, which is paramount to the aerospace industry. According to the United States Aerospace & Defense Industry, the total aerospace and defense industry sales revenue was a combined value of` ~USD 382 billion. The advancing aerospace industry is anticipated to propel the nickel acetate market growth.
  • Increased Use in Electronics - Nickel plating is widely used in electronic parts, such as, microprocessors and integrated circuits due to its reliability and functionality. As per recent studies, the number of smartphones sold worldwide rose from about ~1.3 billion in 2020 to around 1.4 billion in the year 2021.
  • Increased Use in Aesthetic Jewelry – Nickel Acetate is used for decorative purposes to give a bright, shiny appearance to jewelry and also to provide resistance to corrosion and wear. India saw around a 54% rise in jewelry exports in 2021-22 compared to the year before, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation.


  • Contact with Skin May Cause Dermatitis - It has been observed that is a person comes in repeated and prolonged contact with nickel acetate, that a person may experience some organ damage. It is strictly prohibited to inhale nickel acetate since it can cause asthma, cancer and other significant allergies. Hence, this factor may limit the market growth over the forecast period.
  • Carcinogenic in Nature
  • Produces Toxic Fumes When Heated

Nickel Acetate Segmentation

The global nickel acetate market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into electroplating, ceramics glaze, aluminum surface treatment, coinage, textile dyeing, and others. Out of these segments, the aluminum surface treatment segment is estimated to gain the largest market share over the projected time frame. The growth of the segment can be attributed to its myriad applications, such as, in the construction industry, transportation industry, and the manufacture of electrical and consumer goods. As per the latest studies, more than ~USD 1 trillion worth of private and public structures are constructed in the United States alone, every year. Nickel acetate is used in surface treatment and precise plating along with ceramic glazing and industrial fabric dying. Hence, all these factors are expected to propel the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

The global nickel acetate market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into electroplating, ceramics glaze, aluminum surface treatment, coinage, textile dyeing, and others. Amongst these segments, the ceramics glaze segment is expected to garner a significant share. The growth of the segment can be ascribed to escalated utilization of ceramic in home décor which is further boosted by the higher demand for home decor product such as, pottery, decorative lamps, lightings, and others. For instance, it estimated that the home décor sales in India alone is projected to hit approximately USD 2 billion by the end of 2027. Such higher utilization of nickel acetate has spurred the production of this material which is further anticipated to boost the growth of the ceramic glaze segment during the forecast period.
