Global demand for steel has continued to grow in spite of the subdued economy worldwide. While the global economic downturn challenged the steel industry in terms of declining output, the industry remains on trajectory towards strong growth to 2015. The industry faces a main challenge of maintaining its profit margins while dealing with high input costs along with raw material costs.
The steel industry went through the sharpest economic decline in over 75 in 2008-2009. By the middle of 2009, global steel output had fallen by over 20% and plant shutdowns and bankruptcies became quite common. During this period, the global steel industry has also witnessed the rise of China. From accounting for 34% of global steel production in 2006 to accounting to almost half in 2012, steel production in China has grown three times during the years 2006-2013.
While the industry faces many challenges, it is poised for posting good growth figures in the coming years.
