Steel is by far the most important and one of the most multifunctional materials without which development of mankind would have taken on entirely new facet. The performance of the steel industry is often considered as an indicator of economic progress, particularly in developing countries. Global steel production has increased by 59 per cent over a period of seven years. Rapid growth and industrialization achieved in China and India along with an impetus to infrastructure development after 2003 has led to a rise in steel production. China is the largest producer of steel turning out more than 400 million tonnes followed by the EU27, Japan, US, Russia and India. The production of world crude steel is projected to touch 1,410 million tonnes in 2008. This increase is due to expected rise in Chinese and EU-27 production.

WORLD TRADE SCENARIOThe demand for steel is directly co-related with economic growth. With the world economy entering into an expansionary phase since 2003, demand for steel has been on the rise and so has trading in the commodity. The leader in world steel exports is China followed by Japan, Ukraine, Germany and Russia. The US followed by Germany, South Korea, Italy, and France are the major importers. Steel has long remained out of the purview of futures markets. However, trading in steel futures commenced on the London Metal Exchange on April 28. Two regional steel billet contracts have been launched, for Mediterranean and Far East delivery. Each contract is for 65 tonnes of billets.

INDIAIndia is the sixth largest producer of steel. After India's iron and steel industry was delicensed in 1991-92, the country has added capacity in private sector. However, compared to world production, India's production is a mere 4 per cent (2007). Though India produces various varieties of steel, mild steel predominates in the production share. For the 2001-2007 period, production has increased by 94 per cent. The major Indian companies producing steel are Tata Steel, SAIL, RINL, ESSAR, Jindal Steel and ISPAT. The ministry of steel has predicted a slight increase in exports to 6.58 million tonnes in 2007-08 and a decrease in imports to 7.83 million tonnes in the same period.



The Indian Steel industry is almost 100 years old now. Till 1990, the Indian steel industry operated under a regulated environment with insulated markets and large scale capacities reserved for the public sector. Production and prices were determined and regulated by the Government, while SAIL and Tata Steel were the main producers, the latter being the only private player. In 1990, the Indian steel Industry had a production capacity of 23 MT. 1992 saw the onset of liberalization and the Indian economy was opened to the world. Indian steel sector also witnessed the entry of several domestic private players and large private investments flowed into the sector to add fresh capacities. The last decade saw the Indian steel industry integrating with the global economy and evolving considerably to adopt world-class production technology to produce high quality steel. The total investment in the Indian steel since 1990 is over Rs 19,000 crores mostly in plant equipments, which have been installed after 1990. The steel industry also went through a turbulent phase between 1997 and 2001 when there was a downturn in the global steel industry. The progress of the industry in terms of capacity additions, production, consumption, exports and profitability plateaued off during this phase. But the industry weathered the storm only to recover in 2002 and is beginning to get back on its feet given the strong domestic economic growth and revival of demand in global markets. With a currant capacity of 35MT the Indian steel industry is today the 8th largest producer in the world. Today India produce international standard steel of all most all grades/ varieties and has been net exporter for the last few years, underlying the growing acceptability of its product in the global market. Steel is a highly capital intensive industry and cyclical in nature. Its growth is intertwined with the growth of economy at large and in particular the steel consuming

industries such as manufacturing, housing and infrastructure. Steel given its backward and forward linkages has its large multiplier effect. With capital investments of over Rs 100, 000 crores, the Indian steel industry currently provides direct/indirect employment to over 2 million people. As India moves ahead in the new millennium, the steel industry will play a critical role in transforming India into an economic superpower.

Factors Influencing Demand & Supply of Steel1. The demand for steel is dependent on the overall health of the economy and the infrastructure developmental activities being undertaken. 2. Steel prices in the Indian market primarily depend on domestic demand and supply conditions and international prices. 3. Government and different producer and consumer associations regularly monitor steel prices, with government intervention quite routine. Government intervention often has a major influence on domestic prices. 4. The duty imposed on import of steel and its fractions, and on the export of iron ore also have an impact on steel prices. 5. The price trend in steel has been a function of domestic as well as world economic activity. 6. Prices of input materials for iron and steel such as power tariff, freight rates and coal prices, also contribute to the rise in the input costs for steel making. The main crisis in the steel industry is spiralling costs and availability of coal and iron ore. H
