Global Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) Market Research Report 2020
HBI was developed as a product in order to overcome the problems associated with shipping and handling of DRI - due to the process of compaction it is very much less porous and therefore very much less reactive than DRI and does not suffer from the risk of self-heating associated with DRI.
Hot briquetted iron (HBI) is a form of direct reduced iron (DRI) with high iron content (>90%), high density greater than 5,000 kilograms per cubic meter, and has compaction temperature greater than 650°C. HBI is produced by reducing iron ore with natural gas in the form of briquettes. These briquettes are produced using the fluid bed process under temperature of 700° C and high pressing forces. HBI is used as a supplement scrap for electric furnace steel mills and pig iron.
The classification of Hot briquetted iron includes Fe Content 90-92% and Fe Content >92%. The proportion of Fe Content 90-92% in 2018 is about 77%.
Hot briquetted iron is application in Electric Arc Furnaces, Blast Furnaces, and Basic Oxygen Furnaces. The most of Hot briquetted iron is used in Electric Arc Furnaces, and the market share in 2018 is about 76%. Rising demand for HBI to overcome problems associated with DRI during shipping and handling is driving the global hot briquetted iron (HBI) market. Compaction process of HBI is less porous and reactive than DRI; therefore, it does not create self-heating issues. This, in turn, is anticipated to propel the demand for global hot briquetted iron (HBI) market during the forecast period. Additionally, most manufacturers of steel across the globe are shifting their modes of production of steel from traditional blast furnace technology to electric furnace process due to increasing environmental pollution.
