Industry Overview

Structute 11.jpg

India, the fifth largest economy and world's 2nd largest producer of steel has reached its steel production at a historic level of 120 million tonnes per year now moving forward to achieve the target doubling the steel production to 300 million tonnes per annum by 2030.


Steel has played an important role in the development of the Indian economy. India’s crude steel consumption rose from 22 million tons in 1990 to 142 million tons in 2020. According to the Ministry of Steel, the sector contributes around 2 per cent of the country's GDP and employs around 25 lakh people in steel/allied sectors. Evidently, the steel industry is important for the country because it has one of the highest economic linkages in overall GDP. Steel demand in India is expected to register a CAGR of 7-7.5% between 2022- 2025. A major part of this development would be accelerated by Rs 111 crore National Infrastructure Pipeline Initiative of government through fiscal 2025. This growth is also driven by various other government-led initiatives in the affordable housing and infrastructure sector, coupled with robust growth in automotive and capital goods segments.[G1]  The domestic steel industry has the potential to be a net exporter. This is possible if the government looks at rationalizing the cost structure, developing efficient logistics and infrastructure, and making funding available at cheaper rates.

Overall construction sector accounts for majority (greater than 80%) of the steel structures market in India, which is further classified in the following three segments:


Industry - Accounts for more than 50% of demand, primarily driven by steel industry.


Infrastructure - With an overall focus on development of infrastructure, a high demand for steel structures is seen within this segment.


Buildings - Steel structures (especially PEBs) have a strong presence in factory/ warehouse buildings segment. Future potential in high rise buildings could be significant, considering the fast pace of construction desired and scarcity of land in large metropolitan areas. INDUSTRY OVERVIEW With continued focus by the government towards development of core infrastructure such as power, airports, railways, etc.; early indications of revival in industrial sector and probable shift in preference from concrete towards steel structures in the buildings segment, the structural steel demand in India is likely to be robust over next few years.
