Steel Fabrication Market Leading Segments:

According to the analyst of the report, APAC pedals majority of the steel fabrication market share as a consequence of rapid industrialization. Economies such as China, India and Japan secured the top 3 spots as crude steel producers in 2018 as per the World Steel Association.[1] In 2018, APAC lead the global steel fabrication market demand share that was evaluated to be 60%. Majority of the demand is sourced by the strong presence of automotive OEM manufacturers and bourgeoning construction trends in the region such as smart cities. The market for steel in APAC is well established with wide range of retail and distribution networks.

Steel fabrication serves steel with efficient industrial peculiarities such as corrosion resistance, high oxidation temperature, and integrity to maintain the mechanical properties over a wide temperature range. Such peculiarities are crafting it as an appropriate material to be used in modern construction sector that is diverting towards intricately designed infrastructures with utmost precision. Owing to such traits, building and construction is reckoned to be fastest growing end-user vertical, and is estimated to be progressing at CAGR of 5.20% going through 2025.


Steel Fabrication Market Trends:

  • · The process of steel fabrication is an imperative tool capitalized by various energy sectors encompassing wind, oil and gas and, nuclear energy. The demand for precisely tailored products for specific industrial operations such as pipelines and electric power turbine comes from the energy generating plants, which in turn is propelling the steel fabrication market growth.
  • · 3D printing technology, since its inception, has disrupted traditional processes in various sectors including steel fabrication. It optimizes the efficiency in output processes and advocates minimum wastage. 3D printing also known as metal printing liberate the scope of customization in steel fabrication and hence is fueling the demand for fabricated steel products to be employed in complex automotive engineering and construction process.
  • · Contemporary steel fabrication processes are being sidelined with the advent of laser technology equipped with profitable traits. Laser technology apart from great speed and capacity also enhances the most essential front of 'precision'. With laser equipped tools intricate cuts are achieved with utmost accuracy and speed, making the process efficient and economic.
  • · In 2018, Tata Steel and ThyssenKrupp went under a contractual agreement to merge their European steel business in a joint venture with equal shares. This union will generate a strong and robust European steel company and supplement rising opportunities for investors. The projected new company, to be entitled ‘thyssenkrupp Tata Steel BV’.
