The chart above refers to molybdenum produced from mined ore, not to scrap material recycled by chemical processes or remelting; hence the name "new molybdenum."

About 20% of this material is used to make molybdenum grade stainless steel, while constructional steel, tool and high speed steel and cast iron, taken together use an additional 57%. The remaining 23% is used in upgraded products like lubricant grade MoS2, molybdenum chemical compounds and molybdenum metal.
