Global Gadolinium Market: Demand Analysis and Growth Forecast
Gadolinium is a silvery-white rare earth metal represented by the symbol Gd. This element is found in its oxidized form and it is malleable and ductile in nature. Gadolinium has various applications across domains including medical equipment, electronics, imaging agents, and nuclear reactors. Gadolinium is used in very small amounts to form alloys of iron and chromium. Adding a small amount of gadolinium in alloys of iron and chromium optimizes the oxidation process and enhances the resistant properties of the resultant alloy.
