In 2013, South Africa held dominance in the world chromium market in terms of chromite production volumes. The country accounted for 43.3% of the overall chromite output. The other largest producers include India, Kazakhstan and Turkey, which accounted for 16.3%, 15.9% and 8% of the world chromite production volumes, respectively.

Chromium is connected to the stainless steel sector as it is the key downstream market for the material. Moreover, there are no alternative materials to chromium that could replace it in the production of superalloys and stainless steel. Although the steel industry in China is forecast to see a downward trend in the upcoming years, the recovery of the global economies will encourage the growth of the world steel market.

Despite the reduction of the global steel demand, following the recession in the world economy, the chromium market has been viewing strong demand and is expected to see solid growth in the future as well.

The world chromium market is anticipated to witness a growth rate of 3% per year in the year to come. In order to satisfy the rising demand for the material, the growth of the chromite production is expected to be observed in the major mining regions, including South Africa, India, Turkey, Kazakhstan, etc.
