Chrome Industry public figures over 2014 now available

Following the all-time peak production of 2013, 2014 was a year of mixed fortunes for the chrome and ferrochrome industry.
Global chrome ore output contracted to 29 MT last year, on the back of production cuts in major chrome-producing countries. India was plagued with a mining license renewal issue that left most of its mines inactive for months, while South Africa’s UG2 output was hindered by a 5-month strike of the local platinum industry.

Global ferrochrome production however reached 11.8 MT, a new record high in 2014. China remained on top with around 4.2 MT of ferrochrome produced, though production pace slowed towards the end of the year. Meanwhile, South Africa has been slowly catching up as investments in added capacity boosted the output to nearly 4 MT.
