Increasing awareness among consumer about design and flexibility in construction materials is likely to stimulate structural steel market size in projected timeframe. Increasing use of product in construction of residential and non-residential building in Mexico, China, India, Japan and Middle East countries are major factor driving product demand. It offers properties including ductility, fire resistance, toughness and high strength, which intensify its usage in construction of pipeline, buildings, ships and bridges.

Structural steels have extensive application in construction, transmission line towers and manufacturing sheds. These products are produced in numerous shapes including I-beam, angle (L-shape), hollow structural section (HSS) shape, Z-shape, and T-shaped. These products are considered as green construction material owing to its property of being able to be recycled and reused, continuous improvement in construction sector has led to the manufacturing of environmentally friendly products and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, thus propelling industry size.

Rising ecological trepidations are encouraging governments, manufacturers and customers to use sustainable and nature friendly products, which is projected to escalates demand for structural steel. Manufacturers are developing technically advanced steel products which can help in reducing waste and scraps, which are prominent in case of wood. Buildings made by these products do not necessitate treatments for preventing decay, mold, and insect infestation, which is likely to drive product demand in the anticipated timeline.

Structural Steel does not engross moisture, therefore cannot withstand any microorganisms that can have effect on the well-being of home’s habitants, thereby enhancing market size. These products are resistant to floods, earthquakes and snowstorms. Structural steel homes are resistive to flood and earthquakes, up to a magnitude of 7.9 on Richter scale, which is likely to drive product demand.

Oil & gas projects surpassed USD 110 billion in 2017 owing to low cost for offshore development, improved gas demand and higher oil prices, which is likely to stimulate structural steel market size by 2024.

China infrastructure spending was over USD 686 billion in 2017 owing to numerous initiatives by government for providing reliable electricity network, telecommunications, roads and rails, which is anticipated to rise the number of infrastructure project,which in turn stimulating structural steel market size.

Global construction spending is likely to surpass USD 10 trillion by 2024.Government support is demonstrated in budgetary distributions for infrastructure projects and in beneficial regulatory reforms that are initiating new construction projects investment is likely to mount construction sector globally, thus expanding structural steel market size.

Structural steel is an alloy of iron which makes it vulnerable to corrosion. The problem can be overcome using anti-corrosion products, due to which maintenance cost increases which may hamper its market size and industry profitability. Additionally, high fireproofing cost involved in product may affect product price trends.
