Transparency Market Research has released a new report titled, “Ferroalloy Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020.” According to the report, the global ferroalloy market was valued at USD 37.25 billion in 2013 and is anticipated to reach USD 53.56 billion in 2020, expanding at a CAGR of 5.4% between 2014 and 2020.
Ferroalloy is one of the major raw materials used in the manufacture of steel. Ferroalloys impart distinctive qualities to steel and cast iron. Ferroalloy is widely used as deoxidizing, desulfurizing, and reinforcing agents. This helps in the removal of sulfur, phosphorus, and oxygen impurities that are present in iron ores, and this iron ores are used in the manufacture of steel. Thus, growth in the steel industry is estimated to boost the overall ferroalloy market. Furthermore, growth in the construction industry, especially in BRICS countries, is likely to increase the demand for steel. This, in turn, is projected to drive the overall growth of the ferroalloy market. However, high operational cost coupled with stringent environmental regulations is expected to hamper growth of the ferroalloy market in the near future. Development of lightweight, high tensile strength steel is anticipated to boost demand for steel, especially in the automobile industry. This is further estimated to augment growth of the ferroalloy market.

Ferromanganese is one of the ferroalloy that is produced, as well as consumed on a large-scale. In terms of volume, it accounted for over 37% share of the overall ferroalloy market in 2013. With over two-third share of total consumption in 2013, stainless steel industry was the major application segment of the ferroalloy market. Ferrochrome provides corrosion resistance to stainless steel. Demand for ferrochrome is rising due to increasing demand for anticorrosive steel from the automobile industry. Ferrosilicon is primarily used as a deoxidizing and alloying agent in the steel manufacturing process.
China emerged as the leading consumer of ferroalloy in 2013. Presence of large number of steel manufacturers with high production capacities is expected to boost demand for ferroalloy in China. In terms of volume, China is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% between 2014 and 2020. China was followed by Europe, which is estimated to be the next major consumer of ferroalloy due to increasing demand for steel from the automobile industry. Rest of Asia Pacific is projected to be one of the emerging markets for ferroalloys owing to rising demand for steel from the construction industry, especially in India and Japan. North America and Rest of the World are likely to experience sluggish growth during the forecast period.
