Global MgB2 powder market trend 2023-2028 Is Magnesium Diboride MgB2 a Superconductor? by Newsaxh

U.S. natural gas futures rose about 5 percent to a near nine-week high as global energy prices surged on concerns over a pricing plan for energy exports, keeping U.S. LNG export demand near record highs. U.S. natural gas prices have risen despite forecasts of mild weather and lower-than-expected demand, which will allow utilities to fill up storage facilities next week. On Wednesday, Germany launched an emergency plan to manage gas supplies in Europe's largest economy. If natural gas supplies are interrupted or stopped, the German government could take unprecedented steps to limit electricity supply.
Affected by the increase in the price of natural gas, the price of the MgB2 powder will also increase.

Introduction to Magnesium Boride MgB2 Powder
Magnesium diboride or magnesium boride is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula MgB2. It is a dark gray, insoluble solid. 
The compound is of interest because it becomes superconducting at 39 K (-234 °C). In terms of its composition, MgB2 is significantly different from most low-temperature superconductors, which are mainly transition metals. The superconductivity mechanism is mainly described by BCS theory.
 
Is Magnesium Diboride MgB2 a Superconductor?
The superconducting properties of magnesium diboride were discovered in 2001.
Its critical temperature (Tc) is 39 K (-234°C; -389°F), which is the highest among conventional superconductors. This is unusual in conventional (phonon-mediated) superconductors.  Its electronic structure allows for the existence of two distinct types of electrons at the Fermi level, one of which (sigma-bonding) is more superconducting than the other (Pi-bonding).  This contradicts the usual phonon-mediated superconductivity theory, which assumes that all electrons behave in the same way. The theoretical understanding of MgB2 characteristics can be almost realized by modeling two energy gaps.
In 2001, it was thought to act more like a metal than a cuprate superconductor.
