Key Market Trends

Rising Demand for Pre-engineered Buildings and Components

  • Structural steel is one of the major raw materials used in the construction of pre-engineered buildings. The pre-engineered buildings market in India is expected to register a CAGR of 11%-15%, from 2017 to 2020, as the industry had been experiencing an increased focus from various end-user segments, such as automotive, power, logistics, pharmaceuticals, FMCG, and retail.
  • This increasing focus is primarily due to the significant cost benefits and reduction in construction time of manufacturing plants, warehouses, etc., compared to that of the traditional construction model.
  • The rising demand for the pre-engineered buildings is expected to drive the market for structural steel fabrication during the forecast period.
  • The awareness among the Indian construction companies to use structural steel in various commercial and residential construction activities is on the rise.
  • The increasing importance for green building construction is also an important factor that contributes to the growth of PEB in India. Pre-engineered construction has a comparatively smaller impact on the environment compared to that of the conventional construction model.
  • Additionally, the production method of steel used for these structures helps in substantially reducing greenhouse gas emission. Moreover, after demolition, pre-engineered buildings and components, which are 90% recyclable, do not have a significant impact on the environment to that of wastages, like asphalt, concrete, brick, and dust.

Increasing Number of Manufacturing Plants and Infrastructure Development Activities in India

  • The rising demand in India, combined with the fact that global manufacturing companies’ focus to diversify their production by setting-up low-cost plants in countries other than China, is expected to drive the India’s manufacturing sector to grow more than six times by 2025, to USD 1 trillion. This increase in the Indian manufacturing sector had increased the number of manufacturing. Thus, this is driving the demand in the structural steel fabrication market in the country.
  • For instance, the number of mobile manufacturing plants that were setup in India had increased more than 60 times since 2014. This shows the increasing demand for structural steel fabrication, which is due to the increasing number of manufacturing units in the country.
  • The infrastructure development activities by the Government of India are the major driving factors that are expected to boost the Indian structural steel fabrication market over the next few years.
  • Government initiatives, such as the construction of metro stations, new no frill airports, international terminals, industry corridors, power plants, and ports, require heavy steel structures. Thus, these factors are expected to drive the growth of the structural steel fabrication market in India.
  • Moreover, the construction and infrastructure sector is the largest end-user segment to consume steel in India. In 2016, the construction and infrastructure sector accounted for the major share of 62% of the overall Indian steel market.
