Iron & Steel Industry in India

According to a report by IBEF, the Indian Iron and Steel sector enjoys advantages of domestic availability of raw materials and cheap labour. Iron ore is also available in abundant quantities. This provides major cost advantage to the domestic steel industry.

Steel production capacity of the country expanded from about 75 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) in 2009-10 to about 101.02 million tonnes (MT) in 2013-14, when output was 81.7 MT. India produced 7.07 MT of steel in January 2015 reporting the fourth highest production level globally which was 1.7 per cent higher than the country's steel production in the same month in 2014. Considering these figures, it is safe to say that there is and will be good demand for Technician Furnace Transformers: Ferro Alloys and related professionals.
