Global Ferrosilicon Market size was valued at USD 11.09 Billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 15.08 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 2.7% during the forecast period 2024-2033.

Ferrosilicon Market – Overview

Ferrosilicon is an alloy used for the manufacture of silicon, corrosion-resistant and high-temperature-resistant ferrous silicon alloys, and silicon steel for electro motors and transformer cores. In the manufacture of cast iron, ferrosilicon is used for inoculation of the iron to accelerate graphitization.

Various factors such as the increasing usage of ferrosilicon in steel production, and growing automotive production across the globe are driving the growth of the ferrosilicon market. Rising investment in infrastructural projects in emerging economies such as China, India, Indonesia, Brazil, South Africa, etc. is creating the steel demand, which in turn drives the demand for ferrosilicon.

Furthermore, growing automotive production across the globe is also enhancing the consumption of steel and thereby ferrosilicon, contributing to overall market growth.

However, factors such as stringent regulations, fluctuating raw material prices and disruptions in the supply chain, and lack of universal directives about the usage of ferrosilicon are restraining the market growth.

Increasing production of electrical vehicles across the globe and growing investment in residential and commercial infrastructure projects are expected to create significant opportunities for the market during the forecast period.

The global ferrosilicon market is segmented by type, by mode of application, by application and by region. By type, atomized ferrosilicon held the highest market share in 2022 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period. Atomized silicon is a very technical product and has excellent properties.

By mode of application, the deoxidizer segment held the highest market share in 2022 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period. The growing usage of ferrosilicon as a deoxidizer in steel production is expected to drive the growth of this segment during the forecast period.

By region, the ferrosilicon market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, MEA and Africa. Among all of these, Asia Pacific held the highest market share of 63.00% in 2022 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period.

Rapidly expanding automotive and infrastructure industries in China, India, Japan, South Korea and Indonesia are expected to drive the growth of this region during the forecast period.
