Ferrochrome production, chromite ore

Surging demand for ferrochrome used in making ferroalloy, which in turn is used in making stainless steel, has led to a severe shortage of chromite. Such supply condition is driving up prices of chrome ore. Ferrochrome production for metallurgical applications uses up more than 90% of the worlds chromite output of about 19 M tonnes/y.
