Overview of the Iron and Steel Sector

India is the fourth largest producer of crude steel and the largest producer of soft iron in the world. The steel sector in India is almost a century old, and exhibits significant economic importance due to rising demand by sectors such as infrastructure, real estate, and automobiles, in domestic as well as international markets. The level of per capita consumption of steel is an important determinant of the socio-economic development of the country. India?s per capita consumption in 2013 stood at around 57.8 kilograms. However, these figures are expected to rise with increased industrialisation throughout the country.

The Indian steel industry is divided into primary and secondary sectors. The primary sector comprises a few large integrated steel providers producing billets, slabs and hot rolled coils. The secondary sector involves small units focused on the production of value-added products such as cold rolled coils, galvanised coils, angles, columns, beams and other re-rollers, and sponge iron units. Both sectors cater to different market segments.

The demand for steel in India is expected to rise by 4-5 per cent this year and will touch a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15 per cent after FY17. Given the government's high focus on jump starting stalled projects, followed by pushing large flagship projects, including the freight and industrial corridors, it is expected that India will begin moving back on the path of materials intensive growth by the end of this year.

Also, the recently released Union Budget 2014?15 has paved the way for the development of the Indian steel sector with proposals for the construction of 100 smart cities and changes in the MMRD Act. India?s ranking in the global list for production of crude steel is all set to improve with increasing demand for domestic consumption in the years to follow.

Steel production in India is expected to reach 275 million tonnes by 2020, making it the second largest producer in the world. Presently, the Indian iron and steel industry employs around 500,000 people, but with the growing demand for iron and steel and increase in number of production units the employment in Indian iron and steel industry is expected to increase.
