Key Findings of the Study:

  1. By Type, steel accounted for the largest share in 2021
  2. By Production Technology, basic oxygen furnace accounted for the largest share in 2021
  3. By End-use Industry, the heavy industry segment accounted for the third largest share in 2021
  4. Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the Iron & steel market in 2021

Iron segment accounted for the second largest share during forecast period

Iron is a key raw material used in the production of steel, which is one of the most important materials in the world economy. Iron is a chemical element with the symbol Fe and atomic number 26. It is a metal that belongs to the first transition series and group 8 of the periodic table. It is, by mass, the most common element on Earth, forming much of Earth's outer and inner core. It is the fourth most common element in the Earth's crust. Iron is also incredibly strong and malleable, two qualities that make it one of the most important elements in engineering and construction. As a result, the iron and steel market is a large and important part of the global economy, with iron accounting for a significant share of the raw materials used in steel production.

Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) production technology is expected to grow at a highest CAGR during forecast period

the electric arc furnace (EAF) production technology was expected to grow at a highest CAGR in the iron & steel market due to its energy efficiency and flexibility in using a variety of steel scrap materials. The EAF technology is widely used for producing steel from recycled scrap steel, and it has several advantages over traditional blast furnace technology. EAF can produce high-quality steel with lower emissions of greenhouse gases, and it is more flexible in terms of the types of steel scrap materials that can be used in the process. With the increasing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly manufacturing processes, the EAF technology is expected to gain more popularity in the steel industry in the coming years, leading to higher growth rates.
