Global Electric Arc Furnaces Market Introduction
- Electric arc furnace is a high-temperature furnace that is primarily used to produce crude steel with high voltage electric arcs in steel mini-mills
- Electric arc furnace recycle steel scrap and direct reduced iron and mixture of scrap iron into new steel products
Global Electric Arc Furnaces Market Dynamics
- Expansion of power supply infrastructure is considered to be a key factor promoting the demand for electric arc furnaces
- In emerging countries, including China and India, capacities of power generation installations have been rising prominently since 2010 owing to the installation of ultra-supercritical thermal power plants and modernization of existing power plants. Therefore, most leading steel producing countries have surplus electric power that is used to cater to the electricity needs of mini-mills.
- Globally, steel is produced using two routes, namely BF-BOF (blast furnace- basic oxygen furnace) route and EAF (electric arc furnaces) route. Steel production through BF-BOF route requires huge capital investment to meet the rising demand for iron ore, coking coal, and limestone. Moreover, large investments are required in railroads to carry raw materials to integrated steel plants and to ship finished products to end-user industries.
- EAF requires comparatively less capital investment to produce steel, as mini-mills use scrap steel as raw material. EAF route eliminates all other investment requirements associated with storage, transportation, and processing facilities of cooking iron ore and coal.
- Therefore, the low investment requirements associated with material handling and processing of raw materials to produce steel through EAF route, as compared to BF-BOF route, is expected to fuel the demand for electric arc furnaces and thereby, drive the market in the near future.
- Downsizing of the steel production industry in China poses a serious threat to the adoption of electric arc furnaces and thereby hamper the market
- The Government of China has closed down several illegal and outdated steel plants to reduce pollution levels in various Chinese cities including Hebei and Beijing
- China is a major producer, consumer, and exporter of steel, globally, thus downsizing of the steel industry in the country is expected to restrain the electric arc furnaces market
