Metalshub is the leading digital B2B platform for the iron and steel industry. Foundries and Steel Mills use our platform to purchase ferroalloys like HCFeCr, MCFeCr, LCFeCr and Chrome Metal from a global pool of qualified traders and producers. Our Ferrochrome Price Indices help our customers make data driven trading decisions. In 2020, we observed Ferrochrome prices at 1.53 - 3.77 €/kg Cr and Chrome Metal Lump prices at 6.25 - 6.85 E/kg Cr.
Chrome is mainly used in the production of stainless steel, special steel, refractories, and chemicals.

Access data on all commercially relevant Chrome grades, traded on the Metalshub Marketplace.
Ferrochrome, like ferromanganese, is classified by the amounts of carbon contained in the alloy. High Carbon Ferrochrome contains a minimum chromium content of 65 wt% and a maximum carbon content of 9wt.%. More than 80% of the world's ferrochrome production is used for the production of corrosion and heat resistant stainless steels, which can have a chromium content of more than 10.5wt.%.
Ferrochrome alloy with a minimum Chromium content of 65wt.-% and a maximum carbon content of 2wt.-%.
Ferrochrome alloy with a minimum Chromium content of 60wt.-% and a maximum carbon content of 0.1wt.-%.
In stainless steels elements like Nickel can be substituted partly by Nitrited Ferrochrome to reduce production costs.
Chrome metal is available in the form briquettes reducing dust loss and improving handling
Besides briquettes, Chromium metal can also be available in lumpy form.
