“Steel Market is Estimated to Register CAGR of 2.84% by 2023”
Steel Market: Information by Type (Flat and Long), Product (Structural Steel, Prestressing Steel), Application (Building & Construction, Automotive, Electrical Appliance) and Region (Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa) – Forecast till 2023

As per Market Research Future (MRFR) Analysis, Global Steel Market is expected to reach USD 963.6 billion, with a CAGR of 2.84% from 2016 to 2023 (forecast period). The report assesses the effect of coronavirus on major companies in the Global Steel Market and provides a thorough overview of the Covid-19 market impact analysis by type, product, application, and regions.

Global Steel Market is over-supplied by major players due to the addition of production capacity. Oversupply in the Global Steel Industry has resulted in a fall in prices in recent years. Nevertheless, rising demand and capacity closures in China are pushing down prices. Global Steel Demand is expected to see growth, albeit at a slower rate. Different factors supporting demand include growing infrastructural activities in commercial and residential construction, followed by an increase in the use of steel in the automotive, electrical, and other end-use industries.

Key Players:

The Prominent Participants identified by MRFR in the Global Steel Market are ArcerolMittal (Luxemborg), Shangang Group (Spain), Hyundai Steel Company (South Korea), NSSMC Group (Japan), China Baowu Group (China),POSCO (South Korea), HBIS Group (China), Nucor Corporation (US), China Steel Company (Taiwan), Tata Steel Group (India), and others.

Market Dynamics:

Construction as an end-use sector accounts for more than half of the global demand for sales and tonnage. The dynamics of the construction industry across the globe is thus one of the key market determinants of steel production. Structured steel products are used in building frames, warehouses, beams, bridges, and other prefabricated products. As construction activities in developed and developing economies increase, demand for steel is expected to increase during the forecast period.

For example, US construction passed the USD 1 trillion mark and were projected to hit USD 1.7 trillion by 2020. For the first time in over a decade, the difference in the contribution of the construction sector to the country’s economy is decreasing, i.e., a substantial rise in the rate of construction. In terms of revenue growth, US residential, commercial, infrastructure, and industrial and institutional development are expected to experience CAGRs at 6.6%, 6.8%, 4.1%, 6.9%, and 4.4%, respectively, over the projected period driven by urbanization and government initiatives such as the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) and the Telehealth Network Program. Likewise, growing investment in infrastructure development in Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Eastern European countries is expected to fuel demand for steel.

Some market support factors for steel demand include demand in the automotive and transport industries, the rising electricity and electronics industry in ASEAN and the increasing use of advanced high strength steel (AHSS) in electric vehicles.
