Steel Overview

Globally we use more than 1700 Mt of this steel every year and we recycle and re-use more than 85% at the end of each lifecycle. Closer home, India was the world’s second-largest steel producer with production standing at 111.2 million tonnes (MT) in 2019.The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent nationwide lock down had severely affected demand and production of steel in the country in Q1FY21. The lockdown in the months of April and May had crippled domestic demand and steel players were forced to look at export markets to keep their inventory in-check. The finished steel exports as a percentage of total finished steel production peaked during April-August 2020 to average 21% compared to 8% in the corresponding period of FY20 and 6% during the same period in FY19. However, with the unlocking of the economy from June 2020 onwards, domestic demand staged a strong V-shape recovery and exports declined gradually. A pick-up in domestic demand from the infrastructure activities, pipe and tubes manufacturing, automobiles, and consumer durables sector ahead of the festive season has led to increased steel consumption and higher restocking demand. Capacity utilisation levels of crude steel improved with the unlocking of the economy and recovery in demand both domestically and internationally. After a sharp drop in April 2020 to 26.5%, capacity utilisation rate of crude steel returned to 72.8% in September 2020, down by just 2.8% from year ago level of 75.6%
