The US President recently said the conflict between Russia and Ukraine had driven up the prices of all the world's major food staples, including wheat, corn, barley, oilseeds and edible oils, and that Russia and Ukraine together supplied more than 25% of the world's wheat exports and about 20% of its barley exports.
To address the food shortage, the Biden administration says it plans to increase the number of counties eligible for insurance for double cropping. Double cropping is when farmers grow two different crops a year on the same field.
Under Biden's plan, the number of counties eligible for two-season crop insurance would increase by 681, for a total of 1,935.
The UN has warned that up to 1.7bn people are "highly exposed" to the domino effect of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine on the global food, energy, and financial systems. The agency says conflict could increase hunger in countries where people are already suffering from malnutrition.
Even countries where food is less scarce are being hit by rising prices. U.S. grocery prices rose 1% in April, compared with a 10.8% increase over the past 12 months, the Labor Department said recently.
According to the White House, global food prices have risen nearly 13 percent since the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
Besides, affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk In625 powder are still very uncertain.
Introduction to Inconel 625 Alloy
Inconel 625 is a high-performance nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy known for its high strength, temperature resistance and corrosion resistance. The superalloy consists mainly of nickel (min. 58%), followed by chromium, molybdenum, niobium, iron, tantalum, cobalt, and trace amounts of manganese, silicon, aluminum, and titanium.

Inconel 625 Alloy Properties
Special material strength
The strength of Inconel 625 is related not only to the Ni-Cr matrix, but also to the hardening mechanism of niobium and molybdenum. The alloy matrix is strengthened by the interaction of niobium and molybdenum and provides high strength without precipitation hardening. The tensile strength and yield strength of the alloy are 690 MPa and 275 MPa respectively.
High temperature resistant
With a melting point of approximately 1300°C and a thermal expansion coefficient of 1.28 × 10-5 1/K (at 20°C), the Inconel 625 is resistant to a wide range of extreme temperatures from low to extremely high.
In the presence of oxidizer at high temperature, the titanium and niobium components of the oxide film on Inconel 625 increase dramatically, forming a natural protective layer in the material.
The corrosion resistance
The unique combination of its components makes the Inconel 625 highly resistant to corrosive substances. That's why this superalloy works well in salty seawater, especially in milder environments such as fresh water and standard atmospheric conditions.
Inconel 625 is naturally protected by its nickel-chromium substrate when exposed to an oxidant. At the same time, molybdenum protects the material from pitting. In 15% sulfuric acid, the min. rate of material corrosion is 0.188 mm per year.
High level of manufacturing capability
Inconel 625 was designed to have better weldability than earlier alloys, with no signs of cracking under strain and temperature changes after welding. Its high creep resistance and yield strength make this superalloy a good choice for piping, piping and factory equipment that need welding.

Inconel 625 Alloy Application
Inconel 625 was developed in the 1960s to create a material that could be used in steam pipelines. Some modifications were made to its original composition to make it more creep resistant and weldable. Inconel 625 is now being used in a wide range of industries, such as the chemical processing industry, as well as in Marine and nuclear applications to manufacture pumps and valves and other high-pressure equipment.
Inconel alloy 625 shows remarkable corrosion and oxidation resistance. It is capable of withstanding high stresses in and out of water and a wide temperature range, and is resistant to corrosion when exposed to highly acidic environments, making it a suitable choice for nuclear and Marine applications.
Alloy 625 is used in a variety of industries, including automotive, marine, aerospace, oil and gas, chemical processing and nuclear. Typical terminal applications include heat exchangers, bellows, expansion joints, exhaust systems, fasteners, quick-connect fittings and many other applications that require strength and resistance to corrosive environments.

Due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the covid-19 pandemic, how will the international situation develop is highly uncertain. It is too difficult to assess its economic impact properly. However, we could see energy prices and commodity prices keep rising and supply chains are disrupted. Therefore, In625 powder prices are expected to rise in the future.
