Ferromanganese Market Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2016 - 2022


Ferromanganese was first found in the year 1872 by Lambart von Pantz. He produced ferromanganese in a blast furnace with high manganese content which was hardly possible. This achievement led the company with international recognition, along with a gold medal in Venna at 1873 World Exposition. The company also achieved a certificate of award at he Centennial Exposition in Pennsylvania in 1876.

Ferromanganese, a ferroalloy has high content of manganese is produced by mixture of Fe2O3 and MnO2 on heating with carbon in a blast furnace. In the furnace, these oxides go through carbothermal oxidation thereby producing a final product ferromanganese. Ferromanganese is widely used in steelmaking and foundry activities. About 30% of manganese used in steelmaking is used due to its properties as deoxidant and sulphide former. The remaining 70% 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 growth of global ferromanganese market. Manganese improves the workability, tensile strength, toughness, resistance to abrasion and hardness. Increasing constructional activities in the BRICS has led to high demand for steel. Hence, high demand is reported for ferromanganese from the steel industry. In addition, growing demand for ferromanganese from the welding industry is also one among the factors driving the growth of ferromanganese market. Increasing demand from the ally sector is also anticipated to contribute to the growth of 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.
