Of the many recent developments in steelmaking technology, one of the most notable has been the introduction of 'ladle' or 'secondary steelmaking' processes. The present study has therefore sought to assess and to quantify these developments, especially in relation to production and consumption patterns for special steels in the Western World. Estimates have been made of the future levels of demand for special steels in relation to predictions of total crude steel production. Consideration has then been given to the formulation of quantitative projections of the process routes likely to be adopted for special steel production. Finally, using the derived projections for special steel demand and for the changes in process share expected, an assessment has been made of the future requirements for alloying elements and for refractory use in the steel industry with emphasis on special steel production.
