Overview of the steel industry
Technavios research analyst predicts the global steel industry to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 2%, in terms of consumption volume, during the forecast period. The growth of end-user industries such as automotive, mechanical machinery, and infrastructure and construction is fueling the demand for steel. The infrastructure and construction sector, which accounts for more than 52% of the world's steel consumption, is expected to grow at a rate of around 8% by the end of 2020.

The rapid growth of developing economies such as India is also expected to contribute to the market growth during the forecast period. Around 63% of the demand in India is catered by the coal-intensive blast furnaces. The Indian government has banned iron ore, to fight against illegal mining, which is expected to reduce the domestic supply.
