DUBLIN, Dec. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Nickel Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The demand for nickel and the subsequent shutting down of mines across the world has led to the quest for exploration and the development of newer nickel projects in countries where the ban on nickel mining has not been enforced in order to bridge the demand supply gap.

Discovery of newer mines is happening across leading nickel producing nations such as the Philippines, Indonesia, Burma, and many other Asian countries through funding from big companies that have nickel mining as an important part of their business portfolio.

According to the report, Electricity is an invaluable resource and its demand keeps increasing on a daily basis. The demand for electricity is attributed to the growth of the population and industrial and infrastructural development. To meet this ever increasing demand for electricity, more and more power generating plants have to be built across the globe.

Irrespective of the type of resource used (fossil fuels, renewable sources, or nuclear energy), a large quantity of nickel-based stainless steel and superalloys will have to be developed and fabricated. This will increase the usage of nickel and thereby increase the sales of nickel.

Further, the report states that the battery industry is using lithium ion instead of nickel metal hydride in order to substitute the use of nickel. These substitutes will decrease the sales of nickel and thereby limit the growth of this market.
