WiseGuyReports.Com Publish a New Market Research Report On –“ Steel Market 2018 Major Manufacturers Analysis And Industrial Applications Forecasts to 2023”.


Steel is a high strength alloy of iron, which is produced by impregnating iron with carbon. It has superior strength bearing and mechanical properties. Such high strength alloys are used in a number of end-use industries such as building & construction, electrical appliances, domestic appliances, oil & gas, and automotive. Among such applications, building & construction and automotive are the leading applications, where steel used prominently. The construction industry accounted for around 50%in the overall steel consumption in 2016. 

Some of the prominent factors influencing the global steel demand are increasing automotive production across the globe, growing investment in building & construction sector. Building & construction is the leading end-use industry for steel. Owing to high strength and susceptibility to high mechanical stresses, steel is majorly used in the structural application. Mild steel has high architectural capabilities and has relatively high availability in the market. With the growing population and increasing disposable income, investments in the building & construction sector are on the rise in the emerging regions across the globe. This is anticipated to drive the global steel demand. Moreover, automotive is the second largest consumer after building & construction industry. Steel is consumed in OEM as well as automotive component manufacturing industry. Although steel components are being replaced by plastic component due to lightweight trend, inculcation of high strength steel (HSS) is estimated to fuel the steel demand in the automotive industry.
