The application of steel and related products is currently increasing in our daily
life. Due to its high mechanical properties such as strength, ductility and weldability,
steel is widely used in construction of building and rails, automobiles and ships.
Steel is produced through combination of iron, alloy and carbon melting together under
right proportion. Steel can be classified as alloy and carbon steel according to material
properties. Alloy steel have more ductility, toughness and anti-corrosion properties.
Carbon steel is harder than alloy steel and becomes harder as amount of carbon is
increased during the process.
Steel can be processed through hot rolled and cold rolled method. Hot rolled steel
is produced through heating steel above the recrystallization temperature of the metal.These
help the manufacturer to produce steel of high malleable properties which can be used
to form steel of different shape and size.

Cold rolled steel is produced at normal room temperature followed by annealing process.
These help cold rolled steel to have high tensile strength, turning, corrosion resistant
and polishing properties. Cold rolled steel have smooth surfaces and can be used for
automotive and electronic applications. Cold rolled steel is preferred for vehicle
body manufacturing due to smooth surface.
Steels can be classified as flat steel, long steel and tubular steel depending upon
product type. Flat steel finds its application in automotive, heavy machinery, packaging
and construction. Long steel include wire rods, rebars and blooms which are used in
railways, constructions and energy. Tubular steel are consist of rods and pipes which
are used for construction building and bridges.
Steels are basically produced near mining area in form of batches. Later, according
to the requirement of the customer, the manufacturer cuts the steel to the length
and width in a steel processing center. Therefore, large steel manufacturers have
setup steel processing centers in different parts of the world to cater their customers.
Steel is transported to the processing center as per the requirement from steel plants.
Thus, steel is produced in advance in a steel plant and stored in the warehouse. Although,
due to volatile market environment, the demand of steel from customer decreases which
affects the manufacturer inventory. Therefore, manufacturers are finding new ways
to overcome these challenge and thereby reduce inventory cost. The market is dominated
by regional players to cater the growing demand of consumers. However, the quality
of regional player steel varies compared to international steel manufacturers. In
recent years, steel processing industry have seen some major acquisitions and mergers
by global players in order to expand their market.
The demand for steel is expected to increase in North America and Asia Pacific region
in coming years. Most of the European steel manufacturers have setup these plants
in Asia Pacific region due to low production cost and availability of cheap labor.
The application of steel is expected to increase in construction, shipping, transportation,
automotive, packaging, energy and heavy machinery equipment manufacturing.
