Global Chrome Ore Market Overview

Chrome ore is a natural mineral formation containing chromium in such compounds and concentration as to make its commercial exploitation technically feasible and economically suitable. The metallurgical industry uses chromite ore (also known as chrome ore) to produce chromium ferroalloys and metal. It is also used in the chemical industry to make sodium dichromate which is both a chemical industry product and an intermediate product used to make other chromium chemicals. Chrome ore is mainly used to smelt special alloys with elements such as cobalt, nickel and tungsten. These special steels and special alloys are crucial materials for aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding and defense industries for the production of guns, missiles, rockets and ships. 

In addition, chrome ore is also used in the refractory industry to produce refractory materials, including shapes, plastics and foundry sands. These refractory materials are then used in the production of ferrous and nonferrous alloys, glass, and cement. It is useful in the refractory industry because it retains its physical properties at high temperatures and is chemically inert.

Growth Drivers

Growth in the Mining Sector of India

Rising mining industry According to “Indian Chamber of Commerce “The Indian Mining sector contribution is around 3% and steel sector contributes nearly 2% of the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) and employees over 15 lakh people. Rapid rise in steel production has resulted India to become the 4th largest producer of crude steel and largest producer of sponge iron in the world. Additionally, the mining sector of India is growing at a very fast rate. Non-ferrous metal industry is bracing for challenges such as rapid capacity expansion of input minerals, developing indigenous technological expertise and cost reduction.

Increased use of chrome ore by the end users industry

Rising growth of automotive industry for making metal alloys is adding the reason to escalate the growth of market in forecast period. Additionally, demand of stainless steels and chemical industries is also expected to drive the growth of market in future.

Australia covering major rich fields for chromium ore extraction

Asia Pacific region with largely covering fields with rich source of ore mining for extracting and exporting it to various industrial application is expected to drive the growth of market during forecast period of 2019-2027.

Competition and innovations in R&D sector

Increased competition and innovations in R&D solutions for safe and fast mining process is expected to propel the growth of global chrome ore market in expected forecast period of 2018-2027. Additionally, the competition amongst the key players of market for extracting ore from minerals with rising scope in the market is expected to drive the growth of market.


Water and soil pollution arises from mining activities

One of the challenging factor that hamper the growth of global chrome ore market in the expected forecast period of 2018-2027 is pollution caused by mining operations such as soil erosion, pollution in ground water levels and other.
