Emerging economies such as India are predicted to propel the demand for infrastructural developments. One of the key trends in the construction industry includes emphasizing the innovation of green construction materials for a sustainable development approach. These materials are eco-friendly, recyclable, and can help in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The expanding construction industry contributes to the rising demand for stainless steel, which can generate higher revenue in the target industry. Further, the increasing infrastructure development and construction activities in countries around the world, including China, India, and others are forecasted to bring novel opportunities for market players.

Government bodies around the world are taking initiatives to improve housing conditions, which have generated higher demand for structural steel in the end-use industry, i.e., the construction industry. Large walls, facades, and other materials are manufactured with structural steel. Structural steel plays a crucial role in the construction of large canals, factories, bridges, frames, bars, columns, beams, and warehouses. Furthermore, structural steel is also utilized in the construction of trains, ships, trucks, and rail tracks owing to its corrosion resistance, tensile strength, and ductility.

On the flip side, lack of awareness or minimal awareness related to the advantages of structural steel is expected to restrain its adoption to some extent. Moreover, constant fluctuations in the prices of raw materials are also expected to dent market expansion over the years ahead.
