世界の製鉄業は2020年にかけて安定的に成長し、今後の年平均成長率 (CAGR、消費量ベース) は約2%に達する、と推定されています。エンドユーザー産業 (自動車・各種機械・インフラ・建設など) での成長が鉄鋼需要の促進要因となっており、特に世界需要の52%以上を占めるインフラ産業の需要拡大が製鉄業の発展に大きく貢献しています。また、インドなどの新興国市場の急速な発展も鉄鋼市場の成長の一因となっています。他方で、競争激化に伴い、鉄鋼価格の低下や利益率の低下といった問題も生じています。
Technavio's research analyst predicts the global steel industry to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 2%, in terms of consumption volume, during the forecast period. The growth of end-user industries such as automotive, mechanical machinery, and infrastructure and construction is fueling the demand for steel. The infrastructure and construction sector, which accounts for more than 52% of the world's steel consumption, is expected to grow at a rate of around 8% by the end of 2020.
The rapid growth of developing economies such as India is also expected to contribute to the market growth during the forecast period. Around 63% of the demand in India is catered by the coal-intensive blast furnaces. The Indian government has banned iron ore, to fight against illegal mining, which is expected to reduce the domestic supply.
Alloy steel contains metals such as silicon, manganese, copper, aluminum, titanium, chromium, and nickel in varying proportions in order to manipulate the steel's properties. This type of steel is used in electric motors, transformers, power generators, pipelines, and auto parts.
Infrastructure and construction contributed 52% of the global market revenue during 2014 and is expected to retain its market leadership until the end of 2019. Steel-intensive infrastructure such as roads, rail, ports, airports, and power sector is driving the growth of the steel industry in this segment.
APAC accounted for 70% of the market share during 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3% during the forecast period. China, Japan, and India are the market leaders in this region. The increased infrastructure spending in the emerging economies is driving the market growth of this region.
