Sponge iron, also known as direct reduced iron (DRI), refers to a porous metallic product obtained by reducing iron oxide into metallic iron at temperatures below the melting point of iron. It is produced via the direct reduction process, which involves subjecting solid-state iron oxides in the form of iron ore and steel plant wastes to a reducing gas or carbon to remove oxygen, resulting in a surface with numerous hole marks or pores.
This metallic product offers several advantages, including excellent iron content, uniform and consistent quality, low sulfur and phosphorus content, good bin flowability, and a high degree of metallization. As a result, it is widely used as an energy-efficient feedstock in various sectors. Besides this, sponge iron finds extensive applications across the iron and steel industry as a substitute for scrap in induction and electric arc furnaces.
In recent years, the rising shortage of expensive melting scrap has accelerated the adoption of sponge iron as an effective and viable raw material for manufacturing high-quality steel products. This, coupled with the rapid growth in the steel sector across the globe, represents the primary factor supporting market growth. This can be attributed to the augmenting demand for high-quality steel and steel products from numerous industries owing to their beneficial properties, such as malleability, durability, hardness, and versatility. For instance, steel is extensively utilized in the construction of buildings due to its long-lasting nature, recyclability, ductility, and resistance to fire and corrosion. Apart from this, it is widely employed in the automotive sector to fabricate vehicle parts, including doors, engines, trunk closures, braking systems, fuel tanks, gears, steering, and braking systems. Moreover, the escalating need to lower the overall weight of the vehicle to improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions has catalyzed the demand for flat steel, which in turn, is propelling the market growth. Additionally, the increasing use of steel in the production of military aircraft and consumer goods represents another major growth-inducing factor. In line with this, the growing utilization of sponge iron hammered into different shapes to manufacture wrought iron is driving the market further. Other factors, including rising construction and renovation activities, increasing vehicle production and sales, ongoing infrastructure development activities, surging environmental consciousness among the masses, and rapid industrialization, are also anticipated to provide a positive thrust to the market growth.
