After entering the 21st century, with my country’s formal accession to the WTO, under the trend of globalization, my country’s cemented carbide industry has also developed rapidly. In 2013, my country’s annual output of cemented carbide reached 26,000 tons, a year-on-year increase of 15.56%. Compared with 2007, cemented carbide production increased by 57.58%. Among them, cemented carbide cutting pieces increased by 8.36%, mining alloys increased by 59.33%, wear-resistant parts increased by 70.66%, and just bonded gold increased by 23.91%22. Major tungsten industrial enterprises across the country achieved an industrial sales output value of 18.117 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 6.78%.
Because of its high hardness and wear resistance, tungsten carbide is widely used in various manufacturing industries. The main applications of tungsten carbide in the world include cutting tools (30%), wear-resistant parts (28%), high-pressure (diamond synthesis, etc.) tools (28%), mining and road construction machinery (11%) and other fields . With the steady growth of demand for high-performance cemented carbide from basic industries such as cutting machine tool industry, mining industry, automobile manufacturing, oil drilling industry and electronic information industry, as well as the continuous expansion of new application fields, the market for cemented carbide in my country is expected Will maintain a growth rate of about 11%.
