Rhenium-188 is a high energy emitting radioisotope obtained from the tungsten-188 generator. Key players in the global rhenium market include H Cross Company, KGHM, Molymet, Rhenium Alloys, and Ultramet.The latest trend gaining momentum in the rhenium market is Growing use of rhenium-188 in healthcare industry.
It is used in a wide variety of therapeutic applications such as nuclear medicine, preparation of radiopharmaceuticals for radionuclide therapy, oncology, interventional radiology, and cardiology. The analysts forecast global rhenium market to grow at a CAGR of 7.09% during the period 2018-2022.
Rhenium is a dense silvery-white metal that has a very high melting point and a heat-stable crystalline structure, making it exceptionally resistant to heat and wear. It is usually extracted as a by-product of molybdenum smelting and is used especially in superalloys, catalysts, and many other applications.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Fluctuations in the price of rhenium. In 2016, the price of rhenium was $1,400 per metric ton which increased to $4,500 per metric ton by the end of 2017.
The prices of rhenium are currently fluctuating because of the demand-supply gap. The demand for rhenium is increasing because of the growth in the aviation, automotive, and chemical Fluctuations in the price of rhenium industries.
However, the increasing demand for rhenium is affected by the unavailability of resources with time, which creates the supply gap, and results in the fluctuations in the prices of rhenium. Therefore, the fluctuating price of rhenium will impede the growth in the global rhenium market.
