Ferrous Slag Market By Application (Pipe bedding, Aggregates, Hydraulic bound mixes, Filter media, Agricultural And Others (Granular, Capping, Glass Making, Plaster etc.)) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2016 – 2023

Published: Jan 2017 | Report Code: 58302-01-17

SLAG is a broad term covering all non-metallic co products resulting from the separation of a metal from its ore, its chemistry and morphology depends on the metal being produced and the solidification process used. Ferrous lags can be broadly categorized as ferrous (iron/steel) and non-ferrous (copper, lead/zinc) depending on the industry from which they come. Depending on the iron and steel production process different slag types can be manufactured like blast furnace slag, basic oxygen furnace slag, electric arc furnace slag, secondary metallurgical slag and other slags. Based on the application global ferrous slag market is divided into pipe bedding, aggregates, hydraulic bound mixes, filter media, agricultural and others applications. Growing demand from construction activities is expected to drive the growth of ferrous slag market over the forecast period. According to industry experts, aggregates is expected to remain the key driver for ferrous slag market coupled with increasing demand for pipe bedding, agricultural and filter media owing to rapid industrialization especially in region such as BRIC which is anticipated to fuel the growth of ferrous slag market. Global ferrous slag market is segmented by geography into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa regions. In 2015, Asia pacific was observed as the largest and fastest growing market for ferrous slag. Due increasing industrialization, development in agricultural sector from China, India, Japan and South Korea; over past few years ferrous slag is gaining popularity in Asian countries.

The collapse of construction activity in Europe, global ferrous slag market is expected to increase slowly, changes in the Chinese steel industry, changing environmental legislation, direct intervention from governments and international bodies, etc. are the key trends observed in the industry. Lafarge-Holcim. (Switzerland), Lehigh Cement/Hanson. (U.S.), Ash Grove Cement. (U.S.), St Mary's Cement Inc. (Canada), Argos (U.S.), Harsco (U.S.), TMS International (U.S.) are few key manufacturers in ferrous slag market.

Ferrous Slag market is expected to reach over US$ 36.5 Bn by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 1.8% during the forecast period 2016-2023.

Ferrous Slag Market

Global ferrous slag market is segmented by geography into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa regions. The total output of ferrous slag is expected to increase only slowly, or to stagnate and decline marginally, because electric arc furnace steelmaking capacity is expected to grow faster in upcoming years. In 2015, Asia pacific was observed as the largest and fastest growing market for ferrous slag. Due increasing industrialization, development in agricultural sector from China, India, Japan and South Korea; over past few years ferrous slag is gaining popularity in Asian countries. The market for ferrous slag in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is likely to grow considerably during the forecast period owing to increase in utilization of ferrous slag in aggregate and filters. The growth in demand has been accelerated by environmental legislation and by direct intervention from governments and international bodies
