Key Market Trends

Increased Use of Blockchain, Internet of Things, and Industry 5.0:

  • Blockchain is most often described as a digital ledger distributed on a network. While the digital information may be distributed on the network, it may not be copied. That means each individual piece of data can only have one owner. The information is regularly updated and reconciled to be as up to date and accurate as possible.
  • Blockchain can work to verify vendors and to validate their part in the manufacturing process for a manufacturer. Fabricators can be the focus of a blockchain in tracking raw materials being supplied to them, or they can be a part of a blockchain in providing confidence, value and accountability for a manufacturer that they are supplying parts to.
  • While the Internet of Things and Industry 5.0 are pushing man and machine closer together through digital technology, blockchain is more focused on validating the identities and efforts of those involved. It can, to a degree, be viewed as online digital accounting that is verified by stakeholders who participate in the ledger. It adds a new layer of trust to data that then may be used as a more powerful fuel in pushing the Internet of Things and Industry 5.0 forward.

Rising demand from construction sector in the US and Canada:

  • In the US, fabricated and erected structural steel framing were fabricated for more than 10,000 buildings, bridges and industrial facilities through a network of producers, service centers, steel fabricators and erectors in 2017.
  • The US structural steel fabrication market is estimated to be more than USD 23 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 3% during the forecast period.
  • The US structural steel market for commercial application is expected to grow more than 5% during the forecast period. Also, the demand for prefabricated buildings has led to increased consumption of steel structures in the country.
  • Also, the demand for structural steel and pre-fabricated buildings are gaining traction in Canada. The construction sector in Canada is one of the major end-user segment that contributes significantly for the growth of structural steel fabrication in the country.
