Sinha, S B and Ayyamperumal, M (1997) Technology of Ferro Alloys Making in India - A status and Recent Developments. In: Proceedings of the National Workshop on Ferro Alloy Industries in the Liberalised Economy. NML, Jamshedpur, India, Jamshedpur, pp. 133-141. ISBN 81-87053-27-5



The ferro alloy industry in India has grown over the years and has built in a production capacity of more than I million tons for various ferro alloys.The industry has employed world class production technology and is playing a vital role in the sustained growth of the steel industry. Under the liberalized economy it has huge potential for earning valuable foreign exchange through export, besides meeting indigenous derrtand. Liberalization of economy, decontrol of iron and steel prices and delicencing of steel industry are likely to give a boost to the demand forferro alloys. The dynamics of demand and supply pattern of crude steel and major ferro alloys upto the end of the century have been highlighted. The technology of bulk ferro alloy processing in general and recent Research and Developmentactivities carried out in particular have been discussed in detail.The constraints facing the ferro alloy industry have been critically analysed with suggested measures for improvement.
