In terms of revenue, the Global Flat Steel Market is expected to reach USD 694.1 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 5.40% from 2022 to 2028.
The growing need for steel across various application industries, including automotive and construction, is driving the worldwide Flat Steel market. The rising consumer demand for cars, fueled by the expanding worldwide population and resulting transportation needs, is predicted to support market expansion. This is because the increased demand for lightweight automobiles, which have low fuel consumption characteristics, is anticipated to drive the growth of the Flat Steel industry.
Additionally, the government's increasing investments in infrastructure development projects are expected to support market expansion. It is anticipated that the rapidly growing construction sector will increase demand for Flat Steel in infrastructure and building development applications. Furthermore, the industry is expected to grow faster due to advantageous government efforts and technological advancements related to Flat Steel. Additionally, Flat Steel's capacity to be recycled and reused is anticipated to increase its overall appeal in the upcoming years.
Key Highlights from the Report
- Among Processes, the Basic Oxygen Furnace segment is anticipated to dominate the Flat Steel market with the highest market share during the forecast period. This is because using a furnace to produce steel has the advantages of being quicker and making steel of higher quality.
- By End-user Industries, the Building & Infrastructure segment accounted for the highest CAGR in the forecast period. This is because demand for Flat Steel products in this industry will rise as passive and intelligent building systems become more widely used.
- Geographically, Asia Pacific held the largest market share in 2021 and is likely to be the most profitable market in the forecast period. This was due to rising construction industry demand and development in infrastructure projects in places like India, China, and Australia.
One of the main elements fostering a favorable outlook for the market is the significant increase in the global construction and automotive industries. Flat Steel is being used more frequently in low- and high-rise buildings, sports stadiums, bridge deck plates, harbors, cladding and roofing, security fencing, and coastal and flood defense systems as a result of the expanding demand for residential and commercial constructions. Additionally, the widespread use of Flat Steel in manufacturing automotive structures, panels, doors, engine blocks, gears, suspensions, wheels, gasoline tanks, steering, and braking systems is boosting market expansion. Automakers widely use flat and advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) to lighten vehicles and increase fuel efficiency. In keeping with this, using recycled steel scrap is a factor in the market's expansion. The implementation of supportive government policies and other factors, such as substantial infrastructural investments, particularly in developing nations, are expected to propel the market toward growth.
Along with the raw materials for steel, such as iron, coal, and scrap steel, steel has seen daily price fluctuations. The interplay of supply and demand laws contributes to the extreme volatility of these raw material prices. Production costs also influence prices and storage capacity. These price swings impact the cost of producing steel, and steel directly affects the cost of Flat Steel. As a result, pricing fluctuations for steel have an impact on the cost of the finished product. Additionally, significant geopolitical events, changes in demand, and increased steel prices over time have slowed the market's expansion.
Due to its enormous and rapidly expanding construction market, Asia Pacific is anticipated to continue to hold a dominant position in the market over the next five years. Over the next few years, industrialization, urbanization, and rising disposable income in emerging economies will continue to fuel the demand for Flat Steel in the area. In addition, the region's need for Flat Steel products is projected to increase as the automotive industry continues to expand organically and the use of electric vehicles increases to minimize carbon emissions. Along with Flat Steel products, the area exports the crudest steel globally, with China and India being the top two manufacturers.
