Driven by low-carbon and other environmental policies, demand for ferrous slag in cement and aggregates industries worldwide stands to outstrip supply, according to a new study released by IntertechPira, Leatherhead, UK. No longer mere disposable iron and steel manufacturing by-products, the data suggests, ferrous slag, i.e., blast furnace and various types of steel slag, will become increasingly marketable as consumption by regulatory- and energy-savvy primary users escalates, and supply is impacted by evolving steel technology, plus improved quality-control procedures. “The Future of Ferrous Slag–Market Forecasts to 2020” provides analysis of major trends and drivers impacting the ferrous slag market, breaking it down by slag type and key user sector to offer volume and value quantitative forecasts to 2020.
