Odisha is known as the capital for Iron and Steel production in India, and rightly so. The state produced 78 MT of iron ore in FY14. However, the state’s name keeps cropping up into the limelight, on account of fears of bans, suspension or policy dilemmas. Given the changing dynamics in the state, Infraline has initiated to conduct an in-depth analysis of raw material supply expected to emanate from the state, through a mine-wise profiling exercise. The same mines are then compared on a set of parameters in every mining circle. The demand of iron ore emerging from the nearby states have been projected and the gaps have been identified. Long- term imperativeness of utilization of low grade iron ore fines have been scientifically analyzed and suitable opportunities are presented for bridging the demand-supply gap.
