Report Description

India Steel Market is anticipated to grow at a steady pace in the forecast period 2024-2028 & is growing at a very healthy CAGR in the upcoming years. Steel is an alloy made of iron and other elements that is strong, hard, and grey or bluish grey in color. It often comes in flat and long steel varieties. In a blast furnace, raw materials such as coal, iron ore, and lime are melted and then impurities are removed to manufacture the steel. Utensils, electrical cable trays, machine crews, and hinges are frequently made of steel. It promotes malleability, tensile strength, toughness, design flexibility, and anti-corrosion qualities, in addition to extending shelf life. Steel can be easily created and molded in numerous shapes, as opposed to iron, to provide improved shape with a broad variety of dimensions and exceptional purity. Steel, therefore, has a wide range of uses in many other industries, including the automotive, manufacturing, and construction sectors.

Government Initiatives in the Infrastructure Sector
India has a huge requirement for infrastructure. To speed up the construction of India's infrastructure, the Indian government has authorized Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) to provide international investors access to the nation's real estate market. Therefore, in the approaching years, the Indian market presents a 19.65 billion USD potential. With the help of the Global Housing Technologies Challenge, the government wants to update the technology used in the construction sector.

The Smart-Communities initiative, which aims to create communities of the greatest calibre and sustainability, has been allocated USD 29.2 billion by the government. With investments of USD 16.5 billion, 75% of the projects were finished by June 2020. The national government has allocated USD 16.5 million to the HRIDAY initiative, which promotes the growth of old cities. Among other government initiatives, AMRUT and the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), a national housing programme, are anticipated to have a significant positive impact on the infrastructure and building sectors. Furthermore, Nirmala Sitharaman, the Union Finance Minister, stated in her budget speech for 2023–2024 that the Central Government intended to create an Urban Infrastructure Development Fund with an annual budget of USD 1221.78 million that would be used to develop infrastructure in Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities, all across the nation. The National Capital Region Transport Corporation, which is carrying out the Delhi-Meerut fast transit project, is one of the projects for which the government aims to finance USD 2831.48 million in 2023–2024. The CAGR should remain strong. This should have a lot of favorable consequences for the Indian steel industry.
