Light Gauge Steel Framing - Market Overview
Light gauge steel framing is very similar to wood framed construction in principle. In steel construction the wooden framing members are replaced with thin steel sections. The steel sections used here are called cold formed sections. Cold formed steel is shaped by guiding thin sheets of steel through a series of rollers, each roller changing the shape very slightly, with the net result of converting a flat sheet of steel into a C or S-shaped section. The steel used here are zinc coated or zinc or aluminum coated to protect it from corrosion. The thickness of this coating can be varied to suit a range of environments. In the last few years, the light gauge market has gained popularity among SMEs, due to their multiple advantages.
Light Gauge Steel Framing - Market Dynamics
The growth in light gauge steel framing market is attributed to rising construction activities in mainly in emerging economies. The government in developing economies are implementing various housing schemes for the rural populations, which is further likely to drive market for light gauge steel framing. Another factor which has positively impacted the overall market is their applications, projects using light gauge steel framing are completed in a lesser amount of time as compared to other type of structural support that mainly includes concrete or wood, which, in turn, is anticipated to propel demand for light gauge steel framing over the forecast period.
