Arcelor Mittal (Germany) is one of the leading players in the long steel market and has been adopting inorganic and organic strategies to sustain its market position. In 2019, ArcelorMittal announced the acquisition of Essar Steel India Limited (ESIL), a fully integrated flat carbon steel manufacturer located in Gujarat, India. The company simultaneously formed a joint venture with Nippon Steel Corporation, called ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India Limited, which will own and operate ESIL. This acquisition helped the company strengthen its market presence in India. In 2019, ArcelorMittal supplied long products for the construction of major waterway bridge crossing France, Luxembourg, and Germany. This bridge is currently being built with ArcelorMittal’s long products and was expected to be operational by April 2020.
Gerdau S.A. (Brazil) is another major company in the long steel market. It has been adopting organic and inorganic strategies to sustain its position in the market. In 2019, Gerdau agreed to buy a 96.4% share of Siderúrgica Latino-Americana (Silat) 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 production capacity for 600,000 tons of long rolled steel per year. The company mainly produces rebar and wire rod. Silat was a close competitor of Gerdau in the rebar market, and with this acquisition, Gerdau has strengthened its market position in the rebar market. In 2018, Gerdau planned for an investment worth USD 141.6 million to install a new continuous casting line at its Pindamonhangaba steel mill in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The product line is expected to be operational by 2020 and will produce stronger and purer steel specifically for automotive and oil & gas industries.
