What main factors are influencing the continuous annealing lines market expansion?
The growing steel industry and the increasing global demand for advanced high-strength steel have been driving the continuous annealing lines market. According to World Steel Association, the global steel industry is expected to grow by 2.3% in 2023 compared to 2022. The steel industry plays a vital role in modern infrastructure and manufacturing, providing the backbone for construction, automotive, and various industrial applications.
As industries seek to enhance the performance and durability of their products, the demand for advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) has surged globally. In 2021, the AHSS market value reached US$ 17.7 Bn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2022 to 2023. To meet this increasing demand efficiently and maintain the quality of AHSS, continuous annealing lines have emerged as an essential solution. The growing awareness of sustainability, energy efficiency, and lightweight design in the automotive and manufacturing sectors has triggered a surge in the demand for AHSS.
As the automotive industry continues to grow and evolve, there is a rising need for high-quality, lightweight, and high-strength steel used in the production of modern light vehicles. According to Global EV Outlook 2023 released by the International Energy Agency (IEA), global EV sales exceeded 10 million in 2022 and are expected to grow over the coming years as sales reached 2.3 million in the first quarter of 2033, a 25% increase compared to the same period in 2022.
This growing demand for EVs has created a heavy demand for lightweight steel, which has further encouraged the steel industries to set up continuous annealing lines to meet this rapidly increasing demand. For instance, Jamshedpur Continuous Annealing Line and Processing Company Private Limited, a joint venture of Tata Steel and Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering Co., Ltd. was set up specially to manufacture high-strength steel sheets to meet requirements for high fuel efficiency through car weight reduction and higher collision safety.
