Market Overview

The Indian steel industry is considered as one of the few bright spots in the global steel industry. The steel industry in the country revived from the demonetization and the goods and services tax (GST) reform and is growing at a rapid pace.
The market has transformed to a great extent over the past few years. The technological developments, though the adoption rate is low in the sector, have not only improved the delivery times, but also helped the industry in producing accurate designs of steel structures.
  • The India metal fabrication market (henceforth, referred to as the market studied) is fragmented in nature, with the presence of a large number of small- and medium-sized companies and EPC companies.
  • The rising demand for goods and services across various sectors in India, combined with the fact that global manufacturing companies focus to diversify their production by setting-up low-cost plants in countries, like China and India, is expected to drive the Indian manufacturing sector.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Number of Manufacturing Plants

The rising demand for goods and services across various sectors in India, combined with the fact that global manufacturing companies focus to diversify their production by setting-up low-cost plants in countries, like China and India, is expected to drive the Indian manufacturing sector.  Additionally, the Indian manufacturing sector is expected to register a growth of more than six times than the current value, by 2025, to USD 1 trillion. This growth in the Indian manufacturing sector, in turn, is likely to increase the number of manufacturing facilities in the country, which is, thus, expected to drive the demand in the market studied.
For instance, the number of mobile manufacturing plants that were setup in India has increased by more than 60 times since 2014. This shows the increasing demand in the market studied, owing to the increasing number of manufacturing units in the country. In July 2019, the Singapore-headquartered electronics manufacturing and business services provider Flex opened a new manufacturing facility in Chennai, taking the total number of manufacturing facilities of the company in India to four. According to some industrial sources, as of July 2019, the country had planned to open four giga factories to manufacture batteries, with an investment of around USD 4 billion, as the country prepares to shift to electric vehicles.
Capacity Utilisation in the manufacturing sector is measured by Reserve Bank of India in its quarterly Order Books, Inventories and Capacity Utilisation Survey. It indicates not only the production levels of companies, but also indicates the potential for future investments.  The capacity utilisation in India’s manufacturing sector stood at 75.9% in the third quarter of 2018-19 which has shown a growing trend.

Strong Growth in Oil and Gas Segment

The oil and gas industry is among the eight core industries in India, and plays a major role in influencing decision-making for all the other important sections of the economy. Natural gas infrastructure is expected to be an area of opportunity for investments in the near future, particularly as the Indian government is focusing on constructing new LNG terminals, as well as expansion of pipelines across the nation. Metal fabrication plays a crucial role in the oil and gas industry. Almost all equipment and machinery used by them are supplied by metal fabrication companies. There are endless applications of metal fabrication in the oil and gas industry.
India was the fourth-largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) importer in 2017, after Japan, South Korea, and China. Gas pipeline infrastructure in the country covered 16,771 km at the beginning of September 2018.

Competitive Landscape

The India metal fabrication market is fragmented in nature, with the presence of a large number of small- and medium-sized companies and EPC companies. Majority of the large fabricators present in the market studied are majorly EPC companies, which handle end-to-end solutions for structural steel fabrication and process equipment fabrication services. In structural steel, fabricators in the market are focusing on expanding their product portfolio through pre-fabricated buildings and providing engineering solutions to their clients. The increasing construction sector and the preference toward pre-engineered buildings are expected to further increase the competition within the market studied.
