Event Details

General Informations

Manganese and Chrome are important metals for the modern economy. These are essential raw materials for steel-making, ferro-alloys as well as other products. With abundant resources, there is huge potential in the Indian manganese / chrome ore and ferro-alloy sector.

India is the seventh largest producer of manganese ore in the world, with abundant resources to the tune of 475 million tonnes. However, annual production of manganese ore in the country has been declining over the years and during 2016-17, India produced only 2.03 million tonnes of manganese ore. Meanwhile, imports have been increasing significantly and during the year 2016-17 imports have gone upto the level of 1.90 million tonnes. To survive in the increasingly competitive global market and create value for the stakeholders, producers need to focus on productivity, technology and quality improvements, as well as aggressive exploration strategies for locating and defining additional reserves. All these necessitate huge investment as well as induction of state-of-the-art exploration, mining, processing and metallurgical technologies in the Indian manganese ore industry. 

India’s position has come down from being the second to fourth largest producer of chrome ore in the world, with domestic production declining from 4.07 million tonnes in 2008-09 to 2.77 million tonnes in 2016-17. Resources of chrome ore in the country are estimated at 321 million tonnes. India historically has been an important player in the global chrome ore market, though not on the same scale as South African, Kazakh and Turkish producers. However, the dynamics in the global chrome market is changing rapidly. With a focused and progressive market development strategy, it is possible for India to improve its market share and tap new markets. 

Although India has been a major producer of ferro-alloys globally, production of ferro-chrome was about 1 million tonnes and ferro- manganese was 0.52 million tonnes in the year 2016-17, whereas that of ferro-silicon stood at 0.09 million tonnes in the same year. This is despite a total capacity of 5.15 million tonnes of the ferro-alloy industry. Clearly, there is a huge competition from the global market and the industry must utilize its full potential and rise to new levels of technological competitiveness and productivity.  The domestic ferro-alloys industry needs to be promoted through a mix of progressive market development strategies and suitable fiscal measures to offset cheaper imports. 

This event will provide a unique platform for the manganese / chrome ore and alloy producers, consumers, technology suppliers, as well as others to discuss technological developments, legislative issues, research and market trends. Producers, consumers buyers and traders will have the opportunity to discuss and review supply and demand related issues in open forums and private meetings. Suppliers of exploration, mining processing equipment and metallurgical technologies will have an opportunity to make presentations on manganese/chrome ore and alloy to the stakeholders.
