Global Ferroalloys Market to Be Worth US $188.7 Bn by the End of 2025

3 October 2017

Ferroalloys are generally known as the alloys of iron metal in which one or more chemical additives are added into molten iron for steelmaking. Ferroalloys serves important function in the overall process of steelmaking by enhancing the general properties of iron metal. Steel making is one of the primary consumer of ferro alloys and consumes a significant part of the total ferroalloys produced around the globe. Ferroalloys can be divided into two major categories: bulk ferroalloys and noble ferroalloys. Bulk ferroalloys constitutes of ferrosilicon, ferromanganese, ferrochromium, ferro-silico-manganese, and ferro-silico-chromium.

Most of the noble ferroalloys are made from rare earth minerals and are expensive to produce as compared to bulk ferroalloys. Most of the noble alloys are made from adding chromium, tungsten, nickel, boron, vanadium, niobium, titanium, cobalt, copper, molybdenum, phosphorus, and zirconium. These rare earth metals helps in contributing special properties and character to the various alloy steels and cast irons.

Global Ferroalloys Market: Trends and Opportunities

Majority of the ferroalloys are consumed in stainless steel and steel production. Most of the bulk ferro alloys and noble alloys are used in enhancing the properties of steel according to different end users. Some of the major applications of ferro alloys are: steel production, production of superalloys, wire production, and production of welding electrodes. Around 80% of the ferroalloys production is consumed for the steel production and rest of the produced ferroalloys are consumed into other major applications. A significant share of the bulk ferroalloys are used in the production of the steel because of the low prices of the bulk ferroalloys and high production around the major producing regions.
