Germanium dioxide or Germania is the main source of the chemical element germanium used primarily in semiconductors' manufacture. Hence, germanium and its oxide exhibit optical dispersion properties and are widely used in the fiber optics industry to make transmission lines, microscope lenses, photocells, etc. Their transparency to the infrared spectrum makes them an excellent choice for infrared detectors, night vision technology used in military and thermographic cameras. Germanium and its compounds are said to be beneficial to health, hence studied for use as an immunity booster and in chemotherapy. Germania finds its use as a catalyst in the manufacture of resins and algaculture. Germanium is slowly emerging as an essential element used in quantum computing applications.
The ever-expanding semiconductor industry, due to the continuous innovations carried out, will be the key driving force behind this market's growth. Adopting advanced technologies like fiber optics and solar cell applications will further boost this market's development. Rapid urbanization and the increased use of PET bottles for beverages will stimulate Germania's demand in the polymer industry. The continued need for germanium for use in the manufacturing of electronic equipment used in space-based applications due to its resistance to temperature variations and radiation will be a market booster. The main factors that could hinder this market's growth are higher costs, inadequate supply, and the health hazards associated with these chemicals.
