Rhenium is closely related to the development of market demand and high-tech industries. As a strategic material, rhenium major consuming countries is the United States, Western Europe, Japan and other developed countries and the military power of Russia. In recent years, total annual world consumption reached 40t, and increasing year by year. Wherein due to the better economic situation in Europe, consumption increased rapidly, and its annual consumption by the 2-3t to almost 10t. US annual consumption of rhenium is maintained at 20-25t.
