Long Steel Products Industry Outlook

Steel is a vital industry for global economic growth and long steel products play a crucial role in the development of infrastructure across the globe. It is a key raw material used in producing long products for building & construction and various manufacturing activities. As per the World Steel Association, the total value contribution by the steel industry is USD 2.9 trillion, which is equivalent to 3.8% of global GDP.

The global long steel products market is anticipated to be driven by the need to replace structurally deficient infrastructure. Reconstruction of bridges is projected to remain a key focus area for most of the developed countries. For instance, around 9% of bridges in the U.S. were structurally deficient in 2016 and the average age of a bridge in the country is 43 years old. This represents a massive opportunity for vendors, as long steel products are essential components in bridge making.

Long Steel Product Market Size by Application, 2016 - 2027 (USD Million)

Construction was the largest application segment and accounted for a revenue share of more than 79.0% in 2019. Long Steel Products are widely used in residential, non-residential, and infrastructure applications. Structural steel products including beams, angles, sections, etc. are widely utilized in housing, residential, and commercial buildings owing to their lightweight and high-strength characteristics, which minimizes the load on the foundation and reduce sub-structure costs. 

Long Steel Product share, by region, 2021 (%)

Due to growing population and housing needs, Asia Pacific was the largest application segment and accounted for a revenue share of more than 64.0% in 2019. Countries such as India and China, are witnessing an increasing number of residential construction projects, which is likely to create significant demand for long steel product. China consumes more than 40.0% of the world’s long steel product, as the country has some of the top players operating in the steel industry.

China, India, Japan, and the U.S. remain the largest producers and exports of long steel product. The market is mainly driven by the rising need for replacing structurally deficient infrastructure in the world, especially in developing countries and the need to reconstruct bridges in developed countries remains the key focus area. Rebars are the largest segment that dominates the market. They are mainly used to provide resistance to construction loads and hold the concrete in tension. It also provides resistance to temperature-induced stresses and limits the cracking in structures.

Steel Rebar Market Analysis And Forecast

The construction segment dominated the steel rebar market. Asia Pacific accounted for more than half of global steel rebar demand in 2021, owing to the easy availability of raw materials and investments in construction activities.

Steel Rebar Consumption share, by region, 2021 (%)

China ranked amongst the top producer and consumers of steel rebar globally. India follows suit after China, as the second largest consumer of steel rebar. The demand in these countries is primarily driven by investments in construction, and infrastructure through government-aided policies to boost the development in the region.

Carbon Steel Pipe Fittings Market Analysis And Forecast

The oil & gas segment accounted for the largest revenue share of nearly 50.0% in 2021 of the global carbon steel pipe fittings market. The segment is anticipated to grow due to rising investments in the oil & gas industry. The rising need to transport and store the materials in oil & gas, and petrochemical industries are expected to assist the market growth.

The Asia Pacific dominated the market and held the largest volume share of over 60% in 2021 owing to the rapidly expanding infrastructure industry and investments in the oil & gas sector. Europe is also likely to remain a key market over the coming years. The oil & gas industry of the region is under pressure amidst the recent Russia-Ukraine conflict

Carbon Steel Pipe Fittings Consumption share, by region, 2021 (%)

Growing infrastructure investments in North America region is anticipated to benefit the growth of the market. For instance, under the Infrastructure Development Act passed by the U.S. government, the authorities are estimating that California is likely to receive USD 14.00 billion for rebuilding infrastructures including water supply, bridges, roads, and communication. Similar investments were announced for other states in the U.S.

Steel Pipes & Tubes Market Analysis And Forecast

Increasing oil & gas production owing to the demand from the transportation industry is one of the prominent growth drivers for the market. The oil & gas industry is the major consumer segment for steel pipes & tubes market.

Asia Pacific emerged as the leading regional market in 2019 and accounted for a revenue share of over 44% owing to the rising product consumption in the region. China, Japan, South Korea, Southeast Asia, and India are the major product consumers in the region owing to the presence of huge manufacturing, petroleum, and petrochemical sector.

Steel Pipes & Tubes Consumption share, by region, 2021 (%)

North America witnessed a steady growth in the past. In 2019, the demand for steel pipes in the U.S. benefitted from strong economic growth, which was driven by the government-led fiscal stimulus, leading to high business confidence. This resulted in a surge in oil & gas production and high manufacturing activity in the region. According to the statistics of the BP Energy Outlook 2020, the crude oil production in North America increased by nearly 7.3% in 2019.

Steel Wire Market Analysis And Forecast

The global steel wire market growth is expected to increase on account of rising investments in the construction industry. Downstream products of steel wires include ropes and strands, which find numerous uses in the construction industry, such as in supporting suspension bridges and as an added reinforcement in towers. These are extensively used in prestressed concrete, which supports floor beams, roofs, runways, tall columns, and high retaining walls.

The construction segment held the largest revenue share of over 40.0% of the global market in 2021. Widespread uses of steel wire-based ropes, cables, strands, and cords in moving equipment, supporting structures, and various applications in the construction industry are anticipated to help maintain the segment’s dominance during the forecast period.

Steel Wire Consumption share, by region, 2021 (%)

Asia Pacific dominated the global steel wire market and is expected to continue over the forecast period. The stronghold of the region is attributable to the presence of both raw material suppliers, manufacturers, and end-users. Asia-based manufacturers are expanding their production to cater not just to domestic customers but to international demand as well.

Competitive Insights

The outlook for the long steel product markets has weakened quickly in the last quarter of 2022. Factors responsible for weaker prospectus include higher energy prices, the global economic slowdown, rising inflation and the impacts of the Russia-Ukraine war and sharp decline in the real estate sector, and rising COVID infections. Global crude steel production has declined significantly in 2022 as the demand has contracted at the global level.

The destruction of steel production facilities in Ukraine has led to a collapse in steel production along with rising energy prices and production stoppages, especially in Europe. However, the financial performance of steel companies improved in 2022. Recently steel prices have declined, which is putting pressure on the margins of steel producers due to rising raw material and scrap prices.
