Infrastructure Developments to Drive Indian Steel

Noida, India (PressExposure) August 29, 2009 -- According to our new research report, “Indian Steel Industry Outlook to 2012”, strong domestic demand and increased infrastructure spending by the government has been driving the steel industry in the time of recession. Thus, despite slowdown, steel output surged 3.4% in the first quarter of fiscal 2009-10 in comparison of the first quarter of fiscal 2008-09 while the steel consumption was also up by 5.3%.

As per our research report, investments in India’s infrastructure development are surging on account of the government initiatives. It is expected that victory of the congress led government in the recent general elections will spur the investment in roads, ports and bridges in the rural areas, which will lift the steel demand in villages and towns. Anticipating high growth potential in the rural steel demand, JSW Steel Ltd, India’s third biggest producer, has raised it production by 60% in April 2009.

Further, as per our research report, India’s urban population is rapidly increasing and is likely to grow to 360 Million by 2010 and to 533 Million by 2025. This rapidly growing urban population will create the huge demand for housing units. As housing sector is a major consumer of steel in the country, rising demand for housing units has led Indian government to lower the housing loan interest rates to ease out the financial burden on individuals and to support the housing industry. Ultimately, more houses are being constructed, which will further boost the steel demand in the country.
