The global steel market size reached US$ 907 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach US$ 1,077 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 2.8% during 2023-2028.

Steel is a hard, strong grey or bluish-grey alloy produced by combining vital ingredients with iron and various elements. It is commonly available in flat and long steel variants. It is manufactured by melting raw materials, such as coal, iron ore and lime in a blast furnace and removing impurities. Steel is commonly used for the manufacturing of utensils, electrical cable trays, machines crews and hinges. It enhances toughness, design flexibility, tensile strength, anti-corrosion properties and malleability and improves overall shelf life. In comparison to iron, steel can efficiently be designed and molded in various forms to offer enhanced shape with a wide range of dimensions and extreme purity. As a result, steel finds extensive application across various industries, such as automotive, manufacturing and construction.

Steel Market Trends:

Significant growth in the automotive industry across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market. Steel is widely used in the production of automobile structures, such as doors, engines, trunk closures, braking systems, fuel tanks, gears steering and braking systems. In line with this, the increasing demand for flat steel by automobile manufacturers to enhance fuel efficiency and reduce the overall weight of the vehicles is favoring the market growth. Moreover, various technological advancements, such as the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and the development of rolling and casting techniques that assist in improving steel production methods to create designs that are resistant to pressure, temperature and corrosion, are providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the widespread product adoption in the construction industry due to its properties, including ductility and durability, thus making the buildings earthquake-resistant, is positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, including the increasing product demand for manufacturing military aircraft and extensive infrastructural developments across the globe, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
