MARKET INSIGHTS

The global structural steel market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.41% from 2022-2027 and is expected to reach $298.12 billion by 2027 from $205.36 billion in 2021. Structural steel is carbon steel, meaning carbon content is up to 2.1% by weight. Therefore, we can say that coal is the essential raw material for structural steel after iron ore. Many times, structural steel is used in various construction activities. Structural steel comes in numerous shapes, giving architects and civil engineers freedom in designing. Structural steel is used to construct warehouses, aircraft hangers, stadiums, steel and glass buildings, industrial sheds, and bridges. In addition, structural steel is wholly or partially used to construct residential and commercial buildings. Structural steel is an adaptable and convenient construction material that helps in manufacturing versatility and provides structural strength without excessive weight, from commercial to residential to road infrastructure.

Structural steel is also used in various industries such as power generation, electricity transmission & distribution, mining, etc. Most of the substructure components in the mines are supported by structural steel beams and columns. Structural steel is used to construct all workshops, offices, and mine structural sections such as mining screens, fluidized bed boilers, and structures. Structural steels are often specified by industry or national standards such as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), British Standards Institution (BSI), International Standards Organisation (ISO), and so on. In most situations, standards specify fundamental requirements, such as chemical composition, tensile strength, and load-carrying capacity.

Many standards across the world specify structural steel forms. In brief, standards specify angles, tolerances, dimensions, and cross-sectional measurements of steel called structural steel. Many sections are manufactured by hot or cold rolling, while others are formed by welding flat or curved plates together. The structural steel beams and columns are connected by using welding or bolts. Steel structures are widely used in the construction of industrial sheds due to their ability to withstand enormous loads and vibrations.

Additionally, ships, submarines, supertankers, ladders, steel floors and grating, steps, and manufactured steel pieces are examples of maritime vehicles that use structural steel. Structural steel can withstand external pressures and is quickly produced. These characteristics make structural steel suitable for use in the naval industry. Therefore, many structures that support the marine industry, such as docs and ports, use a wide range of steel structures.

MARKET TRENDS & OPPORTUNITIES

Growing Market of Light Gauge Steel Framing
Light gauge steel frame (LGSF) structure is a new generation construction technology widely used in residential and commercial construction in the structural steel market. This technology uses cold-formed steel. Generally, a light gauge steel frame is applied for roof systems, wall systems, roof panels, floor systems, decks, and the entire building. Designing LGSF structures offers great flexibility in the design. Compared to conventional RCC and wooden structures, the LGSF can be used for long distances, providing flexibility in design. Using steel in construction permits designers and architects to design freely by taking advantage of the high strength of steel. This flexibility of LGSF offers a large floor area compared to RCC structures. The LGSF technology is cost-effective for constructing residential and commercial buildings; therefore, the demand for LGSF structures is expected to grow in emerging economies due to the low disposable income of people.

Growing Demand for Sustainable Construction Materials
The demand for sustainable construction materials is increasing rapidly in the global structural steel market as these materials are environmentally friendly and help the construction industry to practice sustainable development. Structural steel is one of the sustainable construction materials for the construction industry that has been used in many buildings and industrial shed projects. Structural steel is widely used in industrial sheds; structural steel components get damaged because of continuous wear and tear due to various manufacturing activities. Therefore, structural steel components are regularly replaced and repaired to maintain structural integrity. Structural steel is a highly recyclable construction material that is generally used in industrial sheds and some residential structures. Additionally, structural steel buildings' life is more than regular bricks and concrete structures. Steel structures take less time for construction, and the wastage of materials is less due to the pre-engineered nature of construction.

INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

Expensive Maintenance
The maintenance cost of structural steel buildings is higher than conventional buildings. For example, if the steel column gets damaged, you need to replace the whole column, but for conventional columns, there are some procedures to repair that damage. Similarly, steel structures need anti-rusting coating and paint more often to prevent steel structures rust. These anti-rust coats and paints increase the maintenance cost for steel structures; thereby, the expensive maintenance causes a hindrance to the growth of the structural steel market.

SEGMENTATION ANALYSIS

INSIGHTS BY APPLICATION
The structural steel market is segmented into infrastructure, industrial, commercial, and residential under the application segment. Infrastructure is expected to be the largest application segment in the structural steel market. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.65% during the forecast period. Structural steel is utilized in various infrastructures, including trains, bridges, towers, tunnels, airports, ports, electricity grids, and other constructions. In recent years, the demand for the infrastructure sector is expected to grow significantly due to rapid industrial development and increasing population. Therefore, the demand for structural steel for the infrastructure segment is also projected to grow. Governments and developers use structural steel for infrastructure projects because of its cost, time efficiency, and sustainable properties. Infrastructure development is critical for a country's economic success; thus, governments invest heavily in infrastructure projects such as trains, roads, electricity, water, and sanitation.

INSIGHTS BY TYPE
Hot rolled steel is the largest segment amongst others in the structural steel market and is expected to reach 235.29 billion by 2027. Hot rolled steel is widely used in structural steel construction. Hot-rolled steel is more accessible to manufacture than cold-rolled steel, and the cost of manufacturing is also lower than cold-rolled steel. Therefore, many contractors, architects, and building designers are using hot-rolled steel, which saves significant money in building construction. Hot rolled steel utilizes compressive forming processes such as rolling, metal extrusion, forging, etc. Because metal can be formed at high temperatures without additional delays, it can be produced in more significant quantities than cold-rolled steel.

GEOGRAPHICAL ANALYSIS

The global structural steel market has many established companies operating in major parts of the world. APAC is one of the largest structural steel markets, growing with a CAGR of 6.68%. The growth is attributed to the infrastructure and industrial development in this region increasing rapidly due to the high population, abundant availability of raw materials, friendly government policies, increased FDI, and availability of skilled and unskilled labor. Asia Pacific region is home to various developing countries such as India, China, South Korea, and Indonesia. Governments of these developing countries have come up with monetary and fiscal policies attracting investment in industrial and infrastructure activities and boosting economic development. Similarly, the growing population is strengthening the commercial and residential sectors due to growing economic activities.

Even though APAC is a dominant market in the world, many other countries with high scope of development in structural steel will challenge APAC's dominance. Regions such as North America and Europe have the most developed countries with well-established industries that require significant infrastructure to support the daily operations of various sectors. Additionally, the growing awareness of sustainable development in developed countries is expected to boost the structural steel market in North America and Europe.
