According to our latest research report “Indian Steel Industry Outlook to 2012”, the Indian steel industry has made a rapid progress on strong fundamentals over the past few years. Manufacturing, housing and infrastructure are some of the important fields that are closely associated with steel consumption in India. In the recently announced budget, the Indian government has funded many infrastructure development and modernization of urban and rural areas projects and most of these projects are expected to be completed by 2012-13, which will enable steel consumption to grow at around 8.3% by FY 2013.
The report reveals that the Indian steel industry is still struggling to tap the huge market potential. In 2008-09, per capita steel consumption in urban areas was estimated at 145 Kg, whereas in rural areas the figure stood at only 3 Kg. However, in the 11th Five-Year Plan, a great emphasis has been given to the infrastructure developments in the rural areas, but still majority of developments will take place in Tier-1, 2 and 3 cities of the country, which will ultimately uplift the per capita steel consumption in urban areas.
Our report further highlights that in infrastructure sector, roads and power sub-segments are the prominent steel consumers among others. In FY 2010, these two sub-sectors together accounted for just above 67% of entire steel consumed in infrastructure sector. In coming years also, their share is anticipated to grow even further, backed by various factors, discussed and analyzed thoroughly in the report.
