Overview of Iron & Steel Sector in India
The Indian steel industry is one of the most promising industries in the country and across the world. Consumption of steel is an important indicator of economic progress of any country; it increases with an increase in demand for infrastructure, automobiles, transportation, etc. India is blessed with a rich bed of iron ore and steel in mainly eastern parts of the country like Orissa and West Bengal, which contribute to more than 70% of the total steel production.
During 2002-2003, India imported 1.51 million 8 tonnes of finished steel recording a growth of 18.8%. During 2003-04 the imports of steel have been estimated to be around 1.65 million tonnes. The total volume of Finished (Carbon Steel) imported during the current year (April-October 2004) is provisionally estimated at 1.05 MT which is higher by 7.7% imported during the corresponding period of last year.
Today, India is the eighth largest steel producing country in the world. The development of iron and steel industry was envisaged during the first Five-Year Plan, but it was during the Second Five-Year Plan that the three integrated steel projects were started at Bhilai, Rourkela and Durgapur. The National Steel Policy 2005 aims at increasing the total steel production of the country to 110 million tonnes per year (in 2019-20) from 38 million tonnes (in 2004-05).
Iron & Steel sector represents around 90,000 crores of capital and directly provides employment to over 5 lakh people. Iron & Steel sector makes an important contribution to the economy, construction sector, export earnings and employment of India. With the growth in the construction sector, the demand for Iron & Steel professionals like Sizing Machine Operator (Abrasive Wheel) is expected to increase considering the competitiveness of Indian steel in the international market.
