A new report by Visiongain predicts that the world market for steel will reach $991 billion, while the production levels will record 1,714.3 million tonnes and global consumption 1,592.5 million tonnes in 2018. This forecast and others appear in Steel Market Report 2018-2028: Volume and Value Forecasts by Process (Hot Rolled, Cold Rolled, Direct Rolled, Tubes, Others), by Steel Type (Carbon Steel, Alloy Steel, Stainless Steel, Others), by End-User Industry (Automotive, Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Oil & Gas, Construction, Others) Plus Financial Analysis of Leading Companies and Leading National Market and Volume (Consumption and Production) Analysis published by Visiongain, a leading business intelligence provider based in London, UK.
The steel market has been declining over the past few years as a result of the large oversupply of steel that pressured prices downwards. The global recession that hit the commodities sector hard also contributed to the shrinking growth. Visiongain predicts that an oversupply will remain over the next decade and a decline in market value, even as consumption increases over the forecast period.
The steel market has been dominated by China, accounting for half of the global market. It is the largest and fastest growing producer and consumer of steel and it will retain its leading position throughout the forecast period. India, Taiwan, Iran, Japan, Mexico and South Korea are other countries exhibiting strong growth in terms of steel production and consumption. Global steel demand over the next decade will mainly depend on the emerging economies. However, economic conditions for the global steel industry remain uncertain and challenging.
The main factors that led to a previously significant increase in demand for steel are new infrastructure developments and the growing needs of the increasing middle class in the developing countries. The construction, automobile, and white goods industries will attract a high demand for steel over the next decade. The construction sector will be the key consumer of steel over the forecast period (2018-2028) as we predict growth above the global trend.
