Global and China Vanadium Industry Report, 2018-2023 Featuring Major Players - Evraz & VanadiumCorp - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 23, 2018--The “Global and China Vanadium Industry Report, 2018-2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Vanadium, deemed as the vitamin of metals, finds wide application in steel, chemicals, new materials, and new energy. There is now global research and development of vanadium for applying it to more industries.

Before climbing to the estimated 151,000 tons in 2018, global vanadium output began to pick up in 2017, by 2.1% from a year earlier to 148,000 tons (V2O5), largely because output in Brazil and China rose. Global vanadium output will keep an average annual growth rate of 3.5% or so between 2018 and 2023.

China as the world’s largest vanadium producer reported output of 84,000 tons (V2O5) in 2017, 3.3% more than in the previous year, and a 57% share of the global total, which showed Chinese players’ more enthusiasm for production. With rising price and demand, China’s vanadium output will keep growing in the forthcoming years but at a moderate pace due to the government’s environmental campaigns and its ban on the import of vanadium slags. It is predicted that the vanadium output in China will present an AAGR of 3.5%-4.5% from 2018 to 2023, a bit above the global average.

As concerns market demand in China, over 85% of vanadium products are consumed by the steel sector. The new national standard, GB/T 1499.2-2018 Steel for the Reinforcement of Concrete -- Part 2: Hot Rolled Ribbed Bars effective from November 2018, requires that some alloy elements like vanadium and bismuth should be added to new ribbed bars, but mere 30% of products in China are subject to the new standard. Accordingly, China will see a soaring demand for vanadium after 2018, with an AAGR of around 10.0%.

As for market price, the Chinese Government’s environmental supervision and the policy of prohibiting the import of vanadium slags led to price hikes of vanadium in the second half of 2017; in 2018, vanadium (V2O5) price shot up again from RMB20,000/ton in January to RMB46,000/ton in October, a spurt of roughly 130%, which was caused by the issuance of the new ribbed bar standard at the start of the year and a slump in vanadium inventory. So still a certain gap will remain between supply and demand in the next a few years, showing little sign of price decline.

The world-renowned vanadium producers consist of Pangang Group Vanadium Titanium & Resources Co., Ltd., HBIS Chengsteel, Russia’s Evraz and Switzerland-based Glencore. In 2017, Pangang Group Vanadium Titanium & Resources Co., Ltd. as the largest producer among them, seized a market share of 16.8%; Evraz followed, with 12.6%.
