Iron ore pellets are becoming an enormously important material in the steelmaking sector owing to their significant improvement in production efficiency and quality of the final products. The government in major countries is planning to shut the sintering activities for ironmaking owing to growing concerns over carbon emission from the sector. This trend has led to the propagation of green pellets in the industry.

Global steel production is dominated by Chinese manufacturers owing to the availability of a large number of small to medium-scale mills within the country. The imports for iron ore across the different province of China is growing at a steady rate, which will further drive the need for pelletizing capacities in upcoming years. For instance, Chinese steelmaker is expected to order approximately 150 – 200 million tons per year of iron ore pellets, with a year-on-year growth of 10%.

Direct reduction (DR) grade will showcase around 4% CAGR in iron ore pellets market volume. The robust growth is attributable to the growing need for high-grade iron ore in the steelmaking industry. These products help in generating low carbon emissions and utilize disintegration properties for retaining a high amount of iron content.

In 2020, the traveling grate process held around 65% share in the iron ore pellets market. This process has mainly been used for pelletizing operation of hematite ore in the past few years. Grate kiln is gaining considerable attention in the iron ore pellets market due to its greater flexibility over the traveling grate process. Other processes have the least share of the overall market due to their limited capacities across the globe.

Based on the product source, hematite will acquire a considerable share. It is estimated to account for more than 35% of the market portion. Lower particle attrition rate and high specific gravity are some of the key growth enabling factors of the market. In addition, this type of source is abundantly available across the globe, which may create a demand in the iron ore pellets market over the next few years.
