Global Ferrosilicon Alloy Materials Market Insights

Global Ferrosilicon Alloy Materials Market was valued at USD 5.51 Billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach a value of USD 8.89 Billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 10.47% over the forecast period (2022-2028).

Ferrosilicon is an iron-silicon alloy that is manufactured by reducing sand or silica in the presence of iron at extremely high temperatures. It is widely used to prevent the loss of carbon from molten steel and other materials by reducing metals from their oxides and deoxidizing steel and other ferrous alloys. It is also utilized in arc welding electrode coatings and in the production of iron, steel, and other ferroalloys. It has exceptional tensile strength, corrosion, abrasion, temperature resistance, high specific gravity, and magnetic properties. Thus, ferrosilicon has numerous applications in the fields of metallurgy, construction, automotive, semiconductors, chemical processing, and solar energy. The increasing use of ferrosilicon as a deoxidizer in the steel industry and as an inoculant in cast iron is anticipated to drive the market. Rising demand for steel compels manufacturers to expand production capacity which in turn will propel the market growth during the analysis period.

Global Ferrosilicon Alloy Materials Market Segmental Analysis

The global ferrosilicon alloy materials market is segmented based on application, end-use, and region. Based on application, the market is segmented into deoxidizers, inoculants, and others. Based on end-use, the market is segmented into carbon & other alloy steel, stainless steel, electric steel, cast iron, and others. Based on region, the global market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and MEA.

Analysis by Application

The deoxidizer segment dominated the ferrosilicon market in 2021, accounting for more than 69.0% of total revenue. The segment is predicted to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Ferrosilicon alloys are widely used in the steel industry as a deoxidizer. The deoxidization process blocks heat and prevents carbon loss from molten steel, ensuring its quality. The inoculants segment is expected to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Ferrosilicon is used as an inoculant in the cast iron industry, and the rising demand for cast iron is expected to propel the ferrosilicon alloy materials market during the analysis period.

Analysis by End Use

In 2021, the carbon & other alloy steel segment dominated the ferrosilicon alloy materials market with a revenue share of more than 43.0%. Ferrosilicon is a crucial raw material in the steel manufacturing process, where it is used as a deoxidizer and alloying agent. In addition, burning ferrosilicon alloy powder at a high temperature produces a great deal of heat, so it is also used as a heat-producing agent in the production of capped steel.

Cast iron is anticipated to experience the highest revenue growth rate during the forecast period. Unlike steel, cast iron is less expensive, easier to melt, and has excellent casting properties. Ferrosilicon alloy is utilized as an inoculant in the cast iron industry to prevent the formation of iron carbide caused by the rapid cooling of thin casting sections. Rising investments in cast iron are expected to benefit product demand during the forecast period. Another essential end-use segment of the market is stainless steel. Ferrosilicon alloy is added to the product to enhance its aesthetics, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance; consequently, rising stainless steel production is driving segment expansion throughout the analysis period.

Global Ferrosilicon Alloy Materials Market Dynamics

Driver

Increasing investment in the field of infrastructure and house development projects around the world is driving the demand for the ferrosilicon alloy materials market.

  • Increasing investment in the field of infrastructure and house development projects around the world is driving the demand for market growth. This is pushing investors to invest in this sector to expand production capacity to meet the increasing demand which is driving the global market growth during the analysis period.

Restraint

Increasing competition and cost of extraction are major restraints for market growth.

  • Increasing competition and extraction costs are significant market growth restraints. As more ore is extracted, ore deposits deplete and demand more capital to extract the same amount of ore, which causes a price increase and restrains the growth of the ferrosilicon alloy materials market during the analysis period.
  • Alternatives to Ferrosilicon, such as ferroaluminum, ferromagnesium, and ferrochromium, are preferred due to their greater accessibility. This factor is anticipated to restrain the global ferrosilicon market over the forecast period. Quartz and Iron Oxide, which are used to produce ferrosilicon alloy, are polluting components. Continuous exposure to ferrosilicon has resulted in the development of cancer in miners. This is an additional factor restraining the ferrosilicon alloy market worldwide.
