Ferrovanadium is an alloy many used for the strengthening of steel. It is a combination of iron and vanadium in which the vanadium content varies from 35% to 80%. It is used as an additive to enhance the quality of ferroalloys. When added to steel, the products are light in weight with extremely high tensile strength. The global ferrovanadium market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.0% over the forecast period (2018-2028) in value terms. The estimated volume of ferrovanadium market in 2018 is 90,033 MT, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% to reach 125,698 MT by the end of 2028.
Factors influencing the global ferrovanadium market growth
The global economic scenario has improved, bringing the mining industry towards sustainable growth from its bottom low. Despite this, capital investments in the industry by miners remain low. Dramatic fluctuations in commodity prices during the recent years have been the key reason for the reduction in investment sentiments in the mining sector. Furthermore, exploration expenditure has been consistently declining over the past few years, primarily owing to sluggish economic conditions. Thus, limited investments in the mining sector are anticipated to hamper the volume of production of ferrovanadium.
On the other hand, the growing construction industry is expected to positively impact the growth of the ferrovanadium market. The construction sector is one of the biggest consumers of steel products as more than 50% of the steel manufactured globally is consumed by the construction industry. Ferrovanadium plays an important role in granting tensile strength to steel, thereby providing cost-effective solutions. Ferrovanadium is the most commonly and widely used alloy for enhancing the strength of reinforcing bars used in buildings, bridges and tunnels.
