Global Chromium Market: Leading Segments

As per the IndustryARC report, APAC dominated the global chromium market in terms of regional demand, followed by North America. The APAC region grabbed around 42% of the total marketplace demand in 2018. The region is considered as the most lucrative region because of the rapid construction trending in countries such as China and India. Construction is possibly one of the most dynamic industrial sectors in the near future and it is essential to support the evolution in affluent societies across the globe.

The largest application of chromium market is delivered from the stainless steel demands. The application of stainless steel in end-user industries is incrementing at a CAGR of 3.56% going through 2025. The demands for stainless steel is growing owing to its extensive applications in the automobile manufacturing sector, consumer electronics sector, and other end-user industry. Recent upsurge in the technology is incrementing the application of chromium in numerous consumer electronic devices.

Global Chromium Market Demand Analysis

Chromium is a highly preferred adulteration agent used in various alloys in the metallurgy sector owing to its characteristics such as lesser toxic, and ability to reflect prolonged exposure of infrared lights. Ferrochromium is one such alloy produced from chromite by silicothermic reactions. This alloy is used for the manufacturing of stainless steel and carbon steel. Also, the product gauges exuberant demands for road construction and the building of other civil engineering infrastructures. According to the Institution of Civil Engineers, the global construction market will grow by 85% to reach .5 trillion by 2030 owing to the rapid developments in the U.S., India, and China. With such an influx of rapid construction, the adjacent raw material markets will also flourish contributing to the global chromium market.

Chromium is a transitional metal which is highly employed in the production of vehicles. Chromium metal adulterated with other metals to form alloys prevents the metal from rust, corrosion, and fading color. According to Organisation International des Constructeurs d’Automobiles (OICA), around 7.4 million unit cars were manufactured in the year 2018. With regularly increasing demands from the automotive sector, the chromium market is projected to propel in the near future.

Global Chromium Market Trends

The chromium element is one of the exclusive entity used in the production of stainless steel. As there are not many alternatives to the production of stainless steels, innovations in the chromium alloy that lead to alloys of ferrochrome and met chromite are expected to continue demands in the global chromium market.

Chromium-containing pigments are trending in the production of various decorations on the road. The lane separating lines, the traffic signals, and other artificial aesthetics on the road are being done with the help of chromium-containing pigments.

Global Chromium Market: Competitive Landscape
