Global Manganese Mining Market 2016-2020

About Manganese Mining

Manganese is widely used in steel production for desulfuration and deoxidization. It enhances tensile strength, wear resistance, weldability, and hardness of steel. In 2015, out of the total manganese alloys produced, 90.06% was used in the production of steel. It is also used with aluminum, copper, and other elements to make different alloys.

Manganese is found as braunite, pyrolusite, psilomelane, and rhodochrosite. Pyrolusite is the most important manganese ore.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global manganese mining market to grow at a CAGR of 3.53% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Manganese Mining Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Manganese Mining Market: Assmang, BHP Billiton, Consolidated Minerals, ERAMET, and Vale.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: MOIL, Sibelco, and Tata Steel.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The mining industry is experiencing an increase in exploration projects. These explorations will provide new opportunities to the market in terms of increase in production, availability of different grades of manganese ore, and expansion in different markets. Many new plants are under construction and expected to start production during the forecast period.”

According to the report, growth in the construction market will translate into demand for steel products. APAC is the largest and strongest growing market for steel products globally. The rapid industrialization and infrastructure development in China, India, and South Korea is the primary demand driver for steel products in this region.

Further, the report states that the declining content of manganese in wet manganese ores is a major concern for the industry. Owing to excessive mining activities, high grade and good manganese content ores are already being extracted from the mines and the available ores have comparitively less manganese content.
