[120 Pages Report] The global steel rebar market size is estimated to be USD 198.7 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 246.3 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2020 to 2025. Increasing building & construction activities (especially in China, Japan, and India), recovering construction sector in Europe, a surge in non-residential construction activities in North America, and a shift in trend towards the use of enhanced grades of steel rebar is expected to drive the growth of steel rebar industry during the forecast period.

Steel Rebar Market

The deformed steel rebar segment is projected to lead the steel rebar market during the forecast period

The major types of steel rebars are deformed and mild steel. Deformed is the largest and fastest-growing market, owing to its deformed surface, which helps in the bond between materials and minimizes slippage in concrete.

Based on end-use, the infrastructure segment is projected to lead the steel rebar market during the forecast period

The steel rebar industry by end-user has been classified into infrastructure, housing, and industrial segments. Infrastructure is the largest and fastest-growing segment, as steel rebar is used widely in infrastructure projects, which include bridges, highways, dams, and stadia, among others.

Electric arc furnace production process to lead the market growth during the forecast period

Based on the production process, the market for steel rebar has been classified into basic oxygen steelmaking and electric arc furnace. The basic oxygen steelmaking segment is the largest segment owing to its superior characteristics such as high production rate, steel with low nitrogen content, and requiring less labor. However, the electric arc furnace segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR due to its environment-friendly production process, which utilizes steel scrap to manufacture products and energy efficiency.

Steel Rebar Market

Asia Pacific projected to be the largest steel rebar market during the forecast period

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for steel rebar due to the growing economies and increasing construction projects. The growth of the Asia-Pacific steel rebar industry can be attributed to an increase in the consumption of infrastructural and housing projects by construction industries. The Asia-Pacific steel rebar market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2020 and 2025 and includes countries such as China, Japan, India, and South Korea. The market in this region is witnessing increased consumption of steel rebar for construction projects initiated by governments and private sectors.

Recent Developments

  • ArcelorMittal in January 2020, secured a supply contract of rebar for the construction of a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, located near Kuwait City.
  • In November 2019, Gerdau S.A. agreed to buy 96.4% of Siderúrgica Latino-Americana (Silat) shares from Spanish group Hierros Añón for USD 110.8 million. Silat is located in Caucaia, a city in the northeastern Brazilian state of Ceará, and has a capacity of 600,000 tonnes per year of long rolled steel. The company mainly produces rebar and wire rod. Silat was a close competitor of Gerdau in the rebar market, and with this acquisition, the company has cemented its market position in the rebar market.
  • In November 2018, Gerdau sold its assets which included the sale of four rebar units and 33 rebar fabrication units in the United States to Commercial Metals Company (CMC) for USD 600 million. This divestment is in line with the company’s strategy of continued transformation and gives it an opportunity to increase its focus on the SBQ, structural and merchant bar markets.
  • In March 2018, Nucor Corporation announced for the construction of a micro mill capable of producing 350,000 tons of rebar at its Frostproof facility in Florida located in Polk County, expected to be operational by the first half of 2020.
