Mild Steel rebars shall witness moderate growth due to special purpose applications

Mild steel rebar industry held more than 25% share by volume in 2018 and expected to witness 4.2% CAGR. These are plain and round, they do not have any grove or twist in the bar. Demand is most likely to be driven by its special applications in expansion and contraction joints in construction activities. For example, seismic design on RC buildings.

Basic oxygen steelmaking likely to dominate steel rebars market

Basic oxygen steel making is a dominating technology and expected to increase its share in the years to come. This is a very common practice used by bulk manufacturers that involves refining of ferrous scrap and carbon rich pig iron from blast furnace into steel by injection of high-purity oxygen over the hot metal. Rising investment in residential infrastructure will enhance segment growth over the forecast period.

Indian government willing to spend around USD 1.5 trillion during forecast period

Public infrastructure held more than 60% steel rebars market share in 2018. Rise in infrastructural development will likely increase products market demand over the forecast period. For example, the Indian government has stated that in order to bridge the gap between country’s infrastructure needs and current infrastructure, government is willing to spend around USD 1.5 trillion over the next five years.

Middle East Megaprojects Tipped to Revolutionize the Region in Coming

Increased government spending in GCC countries on public transport infrastructure and commercial construction mega projects shall drive product demand. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has proposed future projects to provide world-class infrastructure facilities to its citizens. These projects will help boost the country’s economy and aid in achieving the objectives of Vision 2030, which aim towards diversification of economy and development of public services like infrastructure, education, tourism rather than dependence on oil.
