India's Steel Consumption Surges by 13%

According to SteelMint data, India's domestic steel consumption experienced a notable surge of 13% during the fiscal year 2023-24, reaching a total of 136 million metric tons (MT). This growth indicates a robust demand for steel across various sectors, underlining the country's economic resilience and industrial expansion.

The substantial increase in steel consumption is attributed to several factors, including infrastructure development projects, urbanisation initiatives, and manufacturing activities across key sectors such as construction, automotive, and engineering. The buoyant demand for steel underscores its pivotal role as a fundamental raw material driving India's economic progress and industrial transformation.

The robust growth in domestic steel consumption reflects the government's efforts to stimulate economic growth through infrastructure investments and structural reforms. Initiatives such as the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) and flagship programs like Make in India have contributed to bolstering demand for steel and fostering a conducive environment for industrial growth.

Furthermore, the surge in steel consumption underscores the resilience of India's manufacturing and construction sectors, which have demonstrated remarkable adaptability amid challenging economic conditions. The sustained momentum in steel consumption bodes well for the overall trajectory of India's economy, signalling confidence among investors and stakeholders in the country's long-term growth prospects.

Looking ahead, continued investment in infrastructure, urban development, and manufacturing capacity is expected to sustain the momentum in domestic steel consumption. By leveraging its abundant resources and expanding industrial capabilities, India is poised to emerge as a leading global player in the steel sector, driving economic growth and employment generation across the country.
