This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global steel flat-rolled products market by end-user (construction, infrastructure and transport, automobile, consumer good, defense, packaging, and others), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, Europe, and MEA). The key leading vendors identified in the market are ArcelorMittal, JFE Steel, NSSMC, POSCO, Shanghai Baosteel Group, and United States Steel.

Overview of the steel flat-rolled products market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global steel flat-rolled products market to grow at a CAGR of close to 6% over the forecast period. The rapid increase in industrialization and development in APAC countries like India, China, and South Korea will boost the demand for steel flat-rolled products globally. For instance, the construction market in China is expected to grow to nearly USD 2.5 trillion by 2019. Since flat-rolled products find extensive applications in the construction of internal walls, cladding, and purlins, the growth in the construction sector will translate into the demand for steel flat-rolled products until the end of 2020. Moreover, the rapid urbanization, substantial investments in the infrastructure sector, and the banning of iron-ore mining in India are expected to the drive the market for steel flat-rolled products over the forecast period.

The extensive applications of steel in the construction industry will continue to propel the prospects of growth of this market during the forecast period. Steel is the most important engineering material, but its production is an extremely energy-intensive process. The recent technological advancements and extensive research and development has reduced the energy consumption and will eventually lead to the reduction in the emission of greenhouse gasses. Therefore, the use of steel as a sustainable material is expected to aid in the growth of the steel flat-rolled products market until the end of 2020.
