Iron ore pellets refer to those spherical-shaped agglomerates that come with iron (Fe) content. This iron content in these pellets ranges from around 64% to 72% and are made in a specialized plant for pellet. These pellets are gaining substantial traction amongst steelmakers, thanks to their high productivity and high efficiency in comparison with fines or lumps. This factor is estimated to amplify growth opportunities for the global iron ore pellets market in the years to come.
The global iron ore pellets market is likely to be influenced by the growing use of steel in various end use industries, such as manufacturing, automotive, and construction in the years to come. High demand for steel in the construction across the globe is estimated to stoke the demand for iron ore pellets in the years to come.
The outbreak of global pandemic, Covid-19, has forced many countries to impose lockdowns, which has put manufacturing activities to a halt. This factor is likely to affect growth of the global iron ore pellets market adversely in the first six months of 2020. According to the economists, the global economy is likely to recover in the first half of 2021. This factor is estimated to drive the demand for iron ore pellets in the forthcoming years.
Grade, balling technology, application, steelmaking technology, product source, pelletizing process and region are the seven important parameters based on which the global iron ore pellets market has been categorized.
