Growing Demand from the Automotive Industry
The growth of the market for high strength steel is majorly attributed to the growing automotive industries globally. There has been a rapid increase in the automotive production in countries, including China, Brazil, India, Japan, and Australia. High strength steel is preferred in the automotive industry since its physical properties allow high formability, ductility, and is easy to weld. Hence, the rising demand from the automotive sector is likely to augment the growth of the high strength steel market over the years.
High Production Costs of High Strength Steel
Although high strength steel offers cost-effectiveness, provides better performance, and weight reduction for automobile components, there are several restraining factors associated with the production of high strength steel. These factors include high production costs and technological constraints, which may restrain the market growth to a certain extent during the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific is the Most Dominating Region
In terms of consumption in 2017, Asia-Pacific held the largest share. There are several ongoing industrial and infrastructural projects in the region, which serve as important opportunities for the high strength steel market. Additionally, the rapidly increasing demand for lightweight vehicles and electronic vehicles in the region is further expected to augment the growth of the high strength steel market during the forecast period.
Notable Developments in the Market
June 2017: Audi A8 switched back to high-strength steel, most of which is supplied by ArcelorMittal. In 2009, only 8% of the Audi A8 body structure was steel, but the 2018 model will be 40.5% steel.
Major Players: ArcelorMittal, United States Steel Corporation, Tata Steels Ltd, JSW Steel, and Voestalpine AG, among others.
