Steel Market Growth & Trends

The global steel market size is expected to reach USD 1,158.15 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 2.8% during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc.. Growing inclination of contractors towards sustainable, low cost and durable building materials is driving steel demand in upcoming residential projects & industrial infrastructure.

Technological advancements have made pre-engineered metal buildings with high structural integrity a reality, where steel plays an essential function in lending stability, aesthetic appeal and design flexibility. Stringent regulations promoting green & energy-efficient buildings is also contributing to steel demand, especially in industrial structures.

The Asia Pacific market is relatively subdued, but displays high growth owing to exponential growth in the Indian market on account of protectionist measures & rising demand. About 1/3rd of Chinese exports are shipped to countries in Southeast Asia owing to anti-dumping policies by western countries, which has contributed to economic growth and infrastructure development in these countries.

Hot rolled products dominated the steel market with over 74.6% of the volume share in 2022. These products are widely utilized in automobile structures such as frames, wheel and other parts as well as welding and construction trades among others.
