Ferroalloys Market News

  • In July 2022, with the goal of collaborating on researching low carbon iron and steelmaking technologies, Tata Steel and BHP, a major global resources firm, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). By working together in two major areas – the use of biomass as an energy source and the implementation of carbon capture and utilization (CCU) in steel production - Tata Steel and BHP want to minimize the emission intensity of the blast furnace steel route. The alliance intends to promote both businesses' efforts to combat climate change and India's aspirations to become carbon neutral by 2070.
  • In July 2022, one million tonnes per year Neelachal Ispat Nigam Limited ('NINL') was purchased by Tata Steel Long Products Limited, a subsidiary of Tata Steel, from MMTC Ltd., NMDC Ltd., MECON Ltd., Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd., Industrial Promotion and Investment Corporation of Odisha Ltd., Odisha Mining Corporation Ltd., President of India, and Government of Odisha for 93.71 percent. According to the terms and circumstances of the Share Sale and Purchase Agreement signed on March 10, 2022, and in compliance with the procedure being administered by the Department of Disinvestment & Public Asset Management, the acquisition has been completed (DIPAM).

Due to an increase in steel output, the ferroalloys market is predicted to expand. Ferrochrome, ferrosilicon, ferromanganese, and ferromolybdenum are only a few examples of the ferroalloys. Different ferroalloy varieties are used for various steel-making processes. For instance, ferrovanadium is used in the production of steel to provide the material resistance to alkalis and acids like sulfuric and hydrochloric acid. It gives casting and welding electrodes corrosion resistance and increases their tensile strength.

The greatest end-use market for steel goods is construction, where rebars, sections, channels, and angles are often employed. The construction industry is anticipated to expand considerably between 2022 and 2030. The need for ferroalloys, one of the main feedstocks used to produce steel, is anticipated to increase as a result, which will help the demand for steel products.

In terms of both volume and revenue, the Asia Pacific region led the market in 2021, accounting for over 61 percent of worldwide revenue. As a major producer and consumer of ferroalloys, China is expected to continue to dominate the market in the years to come. India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam are the newly developing regional markets for ferroalloys in the Asia Pacific area. In the years to come, significant development is anticipated in China and the aforementioned emerging markets. China imported 43.44 mnt of ferrosilicon in calendar year 21, an increase of 89 percent year over year from 22.96 mnt in calendar year 20. North Korea was the leading exporter with 37.09 mnt (up 141%), followed by South Africa with 0.31 mnt and Norway with 4.49 mint (down 13% each) (21 percent). Lower domestic output of ferrosilicon and increased imports of ferrosilicon last year were mostly caused by the rigorous limitations imposed by China's dual control policy. Power consumption restrictions increased energy prices, and production restrictions for crude steel all continued to have an influence on domestic output. According to figures compiled by SteelMint, China's total imports of chrome ore were at 14.95 mnt in January through December of this year, a modest 4 percent increase from 1.32 mnt the year before.
