Manganese and Chrome are important metals for the modern economy. These are essential raw materials for steel-making, ferro-alloys as well as other products. With abundant resources, there is huge potential in the Indian manganese / chrome ore and ferro-alloy sector. India is the seventh largest producer of manganese ore in the world, with abundant resources to the tune of 475 million tonnes. However, annual production of manganese ore in the country has been declining over the years and during 2016-17, India produced only 2.03 million tonnes of manganese ore. Meanwhile, imports have been increasing significantly and during the year 2016-17 imports have gone upto the level of 1.90 million tonnes. To survive in the increasingly competitive global market and create value for the stakeholders, producers need to focus on productivity, technology and quality improvements, as well as aggressive exploration strategies for locating and defining additional reserves. All these necessitate huge investment as well as induction of state-of-the-art exploration, mining, processing and metallurgical technologies in the Indian manganese ore industry. India's position has come down from being the second to fourth largest producer of chrome ore in the world, with domestic production declining from 4.07 million tonnes in 2008-09 to 2.77 million tonnes in 2016-17. Resources of chrome ore in the country are estimated at 321 million tonnes. India historically has been an important player in the global chrome ore market, though not on the same scale as South African, Kazakh and Turkish producers. However, the dynamics in the global chrome market is changing rapidly. With a focused and progressive market development strategy, it is possible for India to improve its market share and tap new markets.
The Indian Ferro Alloy Producers' Association (IFAPA) representing manufacturers of Ferro Alloys completes 55 years of its successful journey.

IMnI is hosting its two flagship events – the Annual Conference and the EPD Conference – back-to- back this coming June in China, to encourage members to attend both. The 41st ANNUAL CONFERENCE will take place Tuesday, June 16 -- Thursday, June 18 in Shanghai at The Portman Ritz-Carlton. This year’s theme: China at the Crossroads: Into the Mouth of the Dragon. A line-up of world-class experts and speakers will be presenting, including James Kynge, Financial Times Emerging Markets Editor and author of "China Shakes the World: The Rise of a Hungry Nation". The 12th EPD CONFERENCE is scheduled for Friday, June 12 at the Four Points Hotel, Shenzhou Peninsula, Hainan Province. This is the sole annual meeting of producers of Mn Metal and Mn Dioxide produced electrolytically and provides an excellent forum for Mn ore producers to network with them and learn more about their industry. To bridge the two conferences, IMnI will be proposing Technical Tours to China's Top Mn Smelters, Saturday, June 12 – Monday, June 14.
IFATM, being first of its kind networking conference on Ferro Alloys in India, is likely to be attended by delegates from across the globe including Manganese ore & Chrome ore Miners, Steel mills, Traders, Brokers, Technology Companies, Analysts, Inspection Companies, Stainless & Special steelmakers and others.
The 12th China Ferro-alloys International Conference, co-hosted by China Chamber of Commerce of Metals Minerals & Chemicals Importers & Exporters (CCCMC) & Ferro-alloys.com will be held on May 27th-29th, 2015 in Qingdao, China. China Ferro-alloys International Conference has developed into the key platform to learn policy changes, market trends of Chinese ferroalloys industry. Meanwhile the conference has become the gala where Chinese and foreign entrepreneurs exchange information and negotiate business. The conference with the theme “To Promote Ferroalloy Industry Development under New Normal Economy” will be carried on by speeches, forums, trading negotiation and business tour. Participants: we sincerely welcome the following enterprises to attend the conference, ferro-alloys (also including Si and Mn metal) producers, ferro-alloys traders, Ores (Mn Cr Ni) producers and traders, steel mills, foundry plants, metallurgical equipment manufacturers and service enterprises, Logistics enterprises, institution in all over the world.
This event will bring together manganese/chrome ore and alloy producers, consumers, technology suppliers, as well as others interested in the future of these commodities. The event will provide a platform to discuss technological developments, legislative issues, research and market trends. Producers, consumers buyers and traders will have the opportunity to discuss and review supply and demand related issues in open forums and private meetings.
