Long Steel Market: An overview
Long steel is extensively used for construction purposes to provide structural support to the body of the building. In the field of construction, long steels are preferred over flat steel owing to their extensive tensile strength and ductility of the product. Growth in construction projects across the globe has increased the demand of long steels over the period of 2015-2019. Demand from regions such as East Asia and North America has tremendously increased over the past half-decade leading to the expansion in demand for construction materials. High tensile strength, ductility and bundle of other construction favoring properties has led to the rise in demand of long steels. Apart from construction applications, rapid utilization of long steel in the field of transportation such as railways has driven the market in the historical period. Expanding rail project horizons in South Asia & Oceania have opened doors for many manufacturers to expand in the region. Construction application is set to provide thrust to the long steel market in long-run. Global long steel market is forecast to witness absolute growth at a higher digit CAGR between 2020 and 2030. Rising demand from construction, railways and industrial applications has positively impacted long steel market.
COVID-19 to Contract the Long Steel Market
COVID-19 or Novel corona virus has not only shattered the movement of the people but also the production and trade of the major products in the market.
