The global high strength steel market was valued at USD 14.27 Billion in 2015, and is projected to reach USD 21.17 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2016 to 2021. Factors such as high consumption rate of high strength steels in the automotive and construction industries, and upcoming regulations and government support drive the global market.

The high strength low alloy (HSLA) type segment of the global HSS market recorded the largest consumption in 2015, and is expected to continue the same during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the rise in the demand from automotive industry. Physical attributes such as ductile, highly formable, and easy to weld also contribute towards the growth of high strength low alloy as the most preferred type for high strength steels.

Automotive, construction, yellow goods & mining equipment’s, and aviation & marine are the major end-use industries of the high strength steel market. The automotive segment led the market in 2015. The development of new grades of high strength steels provides better performance, promote green economy, and offer good combination of strength, cost effectiveness, and weight reduction for automobile components.

The Asia-Pacific region led the global high strength steel market in 2015. Increasing demand from the industries such as automotive, construction, and yellow goods & mining equipment’s is likely to trigger the growth in high strength steel market in this region. Also, rapid industrialization and infrastructural developments offer lucrative growth opportunities to the market in this region.

High Strength Steels Market

Factors such as high production cost of high strength steels products, and involvement of various safety and technological constraints are expected to restrict the market growth for high strength steels.

There are various companies operating in this market. POSCO (South Korea) is one of the key players in the global market. The company has adopted multiple strategies such as expansions, new product launches, agreements & collaborations, and mergers & acquisitions. SSAB (Sweden), expanded its production facilities and established new plant, launched new products, and acquired various ancillary companies in order to cater to the increasing demand from several end-use industries and rising industry standards. ArcelorMittal (Luxembourg) has entered into various agreements, and merged with leading players of the high strength steel market to strengthen its market position. In addition, the companies like United States Steel Corporation (U.S.), Tata Steels (India), and Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation (Japan) have witnessed various developmental activities over the last five years.
