Market Insights

Ferromanganese was first found in 1872 by Lambart von Pantz. He produced ferromanganese in a blast furnace with a high manganese content, which was hardly possible. This achievement led to international recognition for the company, along with a gold medal at the 1873 Venice World’s Fair. The company also received a certificate of an award at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Pennsylvania.

Ferromanganese, a ferroalloy with a high content of manganese, is produced by heating a mixture of Fe2O3 and MnO2 with carbon in a blast furnace. In the furnace, these oxides go through carbothermal oxidation, thereby producing the final product, ferromanganese. Ferromanganese is widely used in steelmaking and foundry activities. About 30% of the manganese used in steelmaking is used due to its properties as a deoxidant and sulfur dioxide former. The remaining 70% of manganese is purely used as an alloying element, which provides key properties such as strength and toughness. Low-carbon ferromanganese is used in the welding industry, whereas high-carbon ferromanganese is used in the steel industry for a wide range of applications.

Growing demand from the steel industry for ferromanganese is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global ferromanganese market. Manganese improves the workability, tensile strength, toughness, resistance to abrasion, and hardness of steel. Increasing construction activities in the BRICS have led to high demand for steel. Hence, high demand is reported for ferromanganese from the steel industry. In addition, the growing demand for ferromanganese from the welding industry is also one of the factors driving the growth of the ferromanganese market. Increasing demand from the allied sector is also anticipated to contribute to the growth of the global ferromanganese market. Hence, high demand for ferromanganese is reported from the steel industry and welding industry during the forecast period from 2015 to 2022.
