Chromium: United States

This report forecasts to 2022 US chromium demand in metric tons of chromium content. Total demand is segmented by material in terms of: high-carbon ferrochromium; low-carbon ferrochromium; and other materials, such as chromium metal and ferrochromium silicon. Total demand is also segmented by end use as follows: stainless and heat-resisting steel; other steel; superalloys; and other alloys and uses, such as aluminum alloys, cobalt alloys, and nickel alloys.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand, trade, and the various segments are provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017.

Demand represents the net weight of chromium-containing materials consumed in the US. Chromium is defined as chromium ferroalloys and chromium metal. Chromite ore, foundry sand, refractories, chromium chemicals, and same-site reuse of stainless steel scrap are excluded from reported demand figures.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
