Ferro-Alloy Units

TThe Indian Ferro Alloy Producers’ Association (IFAPA) is an apex body representing manufacturers of Bulk and Noble Ferro Alloys in the country. The Ferro Alloys Industry was established during the second five year plan as an ancillary industry to cater to the growing needs of the domestic Steel Industry. This Association of Ferro Alloy Producers was established in the year 1961 to look after the interests of its Members.

Initially, it started with five Members with Sir A. Ramaswami Mudaliar as the Founder Chairman. The Membership has now grown to 88 Members, covering all the major Ferro Alloy Producers, having Electric Arc Furnace Smelting Process and Noble Ferro Alloy Producers using Aluminum Thermic Process.

The Industry’s present capacity is around 5.15 Million Tonnes. The products covered are: Manganese Alloys (HC, MC and LC Ferro Manganese and Silico Manganese), Ferro Silicon, Chrome Alloys (HC,MC & LC Ferro Chrome, Silico Chrome and Charge Chrome), Noble Ferro Alloys (Ferro Molybdenum, Ferro Vanadium, Ferro Tungsten, Ferro Silicon Magnesium, Ferro Boron, Ferro Titanium, etc.

Thus, the Ferro Alloys Industry, considered to be a vital industry, needs to be encouraged. It is envisaged by our planners that the Industry should produce larger quantities of basic alloys, which are required for the growth of the Steel Industry at home and also to cater to the international market.
