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.  The National Steel Policy of India, 2017, aspires to achieve 300 million tonnes of steelmaking capacity by 2030. This would translate into additional consumption of manganese and chrome ore other than iron ore as essential raw material for steel making. Similarly, ferro-alloys are one of the important inputs in the manufacture of alloys and special steel. The growth of ferro-alloy industry is thus directly linked with the development of the iron and steel industry in India.

 

India is the seventh largest producer of manganese ore in the world, with abundant resources to the tune of 495 million tonnes. During 2021-22, the annual production of manganese ore in the country was 2.71 million tonnes of manganese ore. Meanwhile, imports have been increasing significantly. From a level of 2.84 million tonnes during 2019-20, imports have gone upto a level of 6.50 million tonnes during 2021-22. 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 is the third largest producer of chrome ore in the world, with domestic production rising from 2.88 million tonnes in 2020-21 to 3.88 million tonnes in 2021-22. Resources of chrome ore in the country are estimated at 344 million tonnes. India historically has been an important player in the global chrome ore market. With a focused and progressive market development strategy, it is possible for India to improve its market share and tap new markets.

 

India has been a major producer of ferro-alloys globally. During the year 2021-22, production of ferro-chrome was about 1 million tonnes. The import of ferroalloys was about 0.60 million tonnes during 2021-22.This is despite a total production capacity of 5.15 million tonnes of the ferro-alloy industry in the country. Clearly, there is a huge competition from the global market so the industry must utilize its full potential and rise to new levels with advanced technological competitiveness, utilization of green technology 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 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, ESG aspect, legislative issues, 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.
