Global Flat Steel Market is valued approximately USD 452.2 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 5.30 % over the forecast period 2020-2027. Flat Steel is made by melting semi-furnished material such as ingots and billets into rolled forms. It is commonly used in consumer durable, white goods, construction as well as automotive industry. The use of flat steel increases the quality, reliability, ductility, consistency and toughness of the end product. Also, Flat steel has applications for various manufacturers such as cable trays, railways, light bar industries, grating manufacturers, truck trailers and others. the use of flat steel in these key industries mainly automotive, building and mechanical equipment drives the market growth. Further, rapid urbanization, growing industrialization, rising level of disposable income of middle-class families in emerging economies, and growing global population provides a significant boost to the market growth. As, the Union Cabinet, Government of India approved the National Steel Policy (NSP) 2017, as it intends to create a globally competitive steel industry in India. NSP 2017 envisage 300 million tons (MT) steel-making capacity and 160 kgs per capita steel consumption by 2030-31. Moreover, innovation in steel production techniques and expansion in manufacturing capacities and steel companies further augment the market growth. For Instance: In March 2020, Arcelor Mittal Nippon Steel India acquired from Edelweiss Asset Reconstruction company the Bhander Power Plant in Gujrat, India. While in February 2020, Adhunik Metaliks and Zion Steel were acquired by GFG Alliance for USD 60.81 million illustrating geological expansion and manufacturing capacity growth in the country. However, fluctuating iron ore prices impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2020-2027. Although, increasing use of advanced high strength steel (AHSS) in automotive manufacturing for reducing the overall weight presents a lucrative opportunity for the market.
