COVID-19 Impacts:

Supply Chain Disturbances Hampered the Market Expansion

The spread of COVID-19 worldwide urged governments to implement stringent lockdowns and social distancing norms. A shortage of raw materials, limited availability of skilled professionals, and supply chain disruptions due to closure of manufacturing facilities hindered steel production. Additionally, mining activities were halted amid the pandemic which affected the availability of scrap iron and iron ore negatively. Additionally, automotive manufacturers reduced production which, in turn, affected the demand for vehicles.


Hot Rolled Coil (HRC) Segment to Dominate Backed by Increasing Application

According to type, the market is divided into Hot Rolled Coil (HRC), Cold Rolled Coil (CRC), sheets, and others. Among these, the Hot Rolled Coil (HRC) segment captured a significant share in the market due to its surging demand from agriculture equipment, construction, pipe making, and machinery sectors. Additionally, increasing preference for hot rolled coils in areas, which do not need shape changes will elevate segment expansion.

Construction Segment to Lead Stoked by Growing Flat Steel Utilization

As per application, the market is split into construction, automotive & transportation, mechanical equipment, and others. Among these, the construction segment held the largest flat steel market share in 2021, owing to growing product usage die to its optimal cost, safety, and lightweight nature. The adoption of modern techniques for faster project execution will escalate the demand for the product in the construction sector further.

Geographically, the market is segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.
