Ferroalloy is an alloy of iron which contains one or more chemical elements - primarily manganese, aluminium and silicon; and others such as nickel, chromium, tungsten, cobalt, vanadium, molybdenum and others. Added during steelmaking, ferroalloys play a vital role in addition of distinct characters to various alloy steels and cast irons.
Ferroalloys have an indispensable role in the diverse end-use industries and absence of alternative further ensure future market sustainability of the ferroalloy market. However, the ferroalloy industry is currently witnessing a significant impact of ongoing trade disputes.
Persistent Demand for Steel to Ensure Ferroalloy Market Sustenance
Despite the ongoing trade disputes, demand for steel is likely to prevail in the future owing to its important application across end-user industries. The growth of the steel industry is set to prove propulsive for the ferroalloy market. In particular, the production of stainless steel and other steel types presents a significant demand for ferroalloys.
Ferrochrome is utilized in the production of stainless steel which delivers corrosion resistance and improves appearance. Demand for a variety of steel products is increasing, thereby explaining the demand for ferroalloys. A hefty volume of the ferroalloy produced is utilized in the steel production, thereby ensuring a significant demand for ferroalloys in the coming years. Buoyancy in the electronics and electric industry is set to increase the ferroalloy consumption in the wire production, welding electrodes and superalloys.
The thriving construction industry and increased consumption of steel products in improved construction methods also presents lucrative opportunities for ferroalloy market in the future.
Ferroalloy Stakeholders Ramp Up In-House Production Capacities
Influenced by the raw material shortage and fluctuating costs, manufacturers in the ferroalloy market are actively engaged in increasing their in-house production capacities. In a bid to achieve cost efficiency, the leading companies are focusing on improving production of input materials required in ferroalloy production.
- SAIL, a leading ferroalloy producer recently discussed companies plan to concentrate on increasing in-house production capacity in a bid to become self-reliant with regard to input materials.
- Pertama Ferroalloys Brahm Group, a producer of ferrosilicon and manganese alloys announced plans to achieve full production capacity at its Bintulu smelting plant by addressing mechanical problems.
- OM Materials Sarawak whose 75% stakes are under OM Holdings Ltd. has ramped up its ferroalloy smelting plant operation in Samalaju Industrial Park.
Few other stakeholders in the ferroalloy market include Pertama Ferroalloys Brahm Group, Gulf Ferroalloys Company, Tata Steel, Arcelor Mittal, China Minmetals Corporation, Ferroalloy Corporation Limited, Jindal Group, S.C. Feral, Sakura Ferroalloys, Shanghai Shenjia, Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation and Nikopol.
Trade Disputes to Impact Ferroalloy Market Future Outlook
Steel and aluminium tariffs have influenced the global markets of steel, steel products and associated industry. On the other hand, global demand for steel is increasing at a steady pace. Ferroalloys find significant application in steel production. The changing trade measures have covered import duties of ferroalloys which, in turn, are expected to impact the future outlook of the ferroalloy market.
Based on different consumption levels in the steel production, important ferroalloys including ferrochrome, ferrosilicon and ferromanganese will witness distinct price surges in the coming years. As individual ferroalloy consumption is propelled by different driving factors, the trade disputes have caused ambiguity and volatility in the ferroalloy market.
