Stainless steel is a major component of modern manufacturing industries and output. Its shine, smoothness, and corrosion resistance make it an outstanding material for usage in many industrial domains. Chromium makes up about 18% of stainless steel and is a key component in manufacturing the alloy. As for its raw materials, chromium is majorly made up of chromite which is converted into chromium salts for industrial usage. It is also used in electroplating electrical and electronic equipment. Moreover, its applications expand to printing and dyeing, catalysis, tanning, medications, oxidants, and fuels. It also helps in boosting the steel’s hardness, and oxidation resistance, and prevents corrosion. As the end-use industries of chromium continue to thrive, coupled with supportive policymaking initiatives, the demand for chromium is set to grow. This will be instrumental in enabling the expansion of the global chromium market
