Follow us on LinkedIn - Manganese is the 12th most abundant element found in the earth's crust, and also the 2nd most abundant heavy metal in the world. Demand for manganese is heavily tied to the steel industry and consumption patterns therefore suffered during the 2007-2009 period, owing to the world economic recession that stifled demand for steel in industries such as automotive, construction and heavy machinery. The market nevertheless made a recovery supported by the relatively stable demand for manganese in batteries. Growing demand for automobiles in developing countries will continue to benefit the market in the coming years.
Recent innovations in the green energy sector are boosting demand for electrolytic manganese metal (EMM) and electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD). EMM, a highly purified form of manganese, is being increasingly used for fabricating cathodes, while EMD, a more refined variety of EMM is being used to produce anodes of the lithium-ion batteries that power electric vehicles. Use of EMD in high-performance alkaline and lithium-ion batteries is projected to grow considerably over the coming years, primarily driven by spiraling sales of portable communication devices and computer equipment.
As stated by the new market research report on Manganese, Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market worldwide. Growth in the region will be led by countries such as China, India, and Taiwan where steel consumption is spiraling owing to expansion in the industrial sector. Additionally, optimistic outlook for automobile production in Asia is further expected to lend traction to market growth. Demand for manganese in developed regions is expected to recover albeit at a slower rate given the signs of economic recovery in Japan and Europe. Traditional manganese manufacturing regions such as China, South Africa and Australia are expected to record increased production of manganese ore, electrolytic manganese metal (EMM), and ferroalloys, as new projects come onboard to address the growing demand for metal.
Major players covered in the report include Assmang Ltd., Anglo American Plc, BHP Billiton, Carus Corporation, Compania Minera Autlan, S.A.B. De C.V., Eramet SA, Manganese Metal Company, MOIL Limited, Nippon Denko Company Ltd., and Vale, among others.
