The global ferro alloys market is progressing towards a positive direction and is anticipated to touch USD 59.4 billion at a 5.6% CAGR over the forecast period (2022-2030). This market is witnessing a noteworthy growth due to the growing application of ferro alloys in various industries including metallurgy, cutlery, automobile bodies, road rails and others. Also called the alloy of iron metal, ferro alloys have one or above chemical additives that are added to molten iron to make steel. It serves a vital function in the steelmaking’s overall process by improving the iron metal’s general properties. Steel making is a key consumer of ferro alloys which consumes a major part of the complete ferroalloys that is produced across the world. The chief function of ferro alloy is in improving the resistance to oxidation, erosion, to other chemical reactions and also resistance to tensile especially in high temperature. The most common and primary using ferro alloys are created with silicon, manganese and chromium. Generally, ferro alloys possess lower melting range compared to the pure elements. In fact, it can be more readily incorporated in molten steel. It is added with liquid steel for attaining a definite chemical composition along with offering properties required for making specific products. Ferro alloys are used in almost every steel including tool, electrical, alloy, stainless, plain carbon and others.
There are various factors that is driving the growth of the ferro alloys market according to MRFR (Market Research Future) Report. These include growing need of steel in different industrial applications, stringent rules laid down by the government for pollution control, increased production of ferro alloys, recovering steel industry with new exporters offering affordable raw materials, modern technology in ferro alloys production and rising consumption of ferro alloys across the world. On the contrary, increasing fuel prices and high consumption of energy during production may hamper the ferro alloys market growth during the forecast period.
As per MRFR report, the global Ferro Alloys Market share is segmented on the basis of types and application.
Based on types, it is segmented into ferrovanadium, ferrotungsten, ferrotitanium, ferrosilicon, ferronickel, ferromolybdenum, ferromanganese, ferrochromium and others. Of these, the ferromanganese segment will have the maximum share in the ferro alloys market.
Based on applications, the ferro alloys market is segmented into metallurgy, cutlery, automobile bodies, road rails and others.
