The outbreak of the coronavirus negatively affected the performance of Ukraine-based ferroalloy producers in the first quarter of this year.

In the January-March period this year, Ukraine’s ferroalloy production decreased by 24.8 percent year on year to 189,650 mt, according to UkrFA (Ukrainian association of producers of ferroalloys and other electrometallurgy products). In particular, the production of silicomanganese in the given period dropped by 34.6 percent year on year to 135,850 mt, while the output of ferrosilicon plunged by 40 percent year on year to 12,050 mt. Meanwhile, the production of manganese metal plummeted by 60 percent year on year to 700 mt, SteelOrbis has learned.
In contrast, in the January-March period this year the output of ferromanganese doubled year on year to 41,050 mt.
