We Demand Market Investing In Vanadium And Its Oxides
First, a bit about vanadium oxide and vandium pentoxide, commonly know as vanadium. Its symbol on the periodic table is V and its atomic number is 23. This silvery gray, soft metal has a layer of oxide to protect the rest of the mass from oxidation, thus the term vanadium oxide. Vanadium oxide and vandium pentoxide are typically used synonymously. Vandium pentoxide and vanadium oxide was discovered in 1801, by Andres Manuel del Rio and rediscoverd in 1831 by Nils Gabriel Sefstrom, who named it Vanadium after the Scandinavian Goddess Vanadis. Vandium pentoxide is used to create sulfuric acid. Vanadium oxide is mildly toxic. It stabilizes steel and titanium to increase the strength of both metals. The vanadium market is in high demand at the moment and investing in vandium is high favorable at the moment.
The Vanadium Market
Buying vanadium stocks is investing in vandium mining companies or vanadium storage companies. The Demand for vanadium is increasing making the vanadium market desirable and therefore the time for investing and buying vanadium stocks is here. Several companies that operate in vandium pentoxide mining and storage and their publicly traded symbols (trading vanadium stocks) are the following:

Investing in Vandium
Vanadium stock depends highly on the public demand for the material. Since Vanadium batteries can be stored in a discharged state for an indefinite time period and revived simply by adding an electrolyte fluid, they are becoming part of the environmentally friendly “green” movement thereby created a higher demand for the vanadium market. Vanadium is a valuable resource found mainly in South Africa but also in other parts of world. As is well known, African countries may not be as stable as Western companies and therefore one should be cautious in investing in vanadium stocks overseas this reduces the demand in the vanadium market overseas. Vanadium oxide is usually created as a by-product of another chemical reaction.
Investing In Vanadium Steel
Investing in vandium is a great decision since steel, both the ultra- strong and light-weight variety are needed for so many products used by consumers. Vanadium is critical in the production of steel, and therefore the value of vanadium stocks and the vanadium market are incredibly high. Investing in vandium, means investing in products such as jet engines and surgical tools since they are made with quality steel and depend on vanadium. Vanadium stocks are closely aligned with the stock prices of companies that manufacture products using steel.
World Vanadium Resources
There are in excess of sixty-three million tons of world resources of vanadium. Deposits of titaniferous magnetite, phosphate rock, and uraniferous sandstone and siltstone contain vanadium. The vanadium constitutes approximately 2% of the host rock. It is also possible to find significant amounts of vanadium in bauxite and carboniferous materials, such as crude oil, coal, oil shale, and tar sands.
