Outlook of the ASEAN steel market

Technavio's market research analyst predicts the ASEAN steel market to witness moderate growth at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The automotive industry, mechanical machinery, and infrastructure and construction industries are the primary users of steel and have been driving the growth of the ASEAN steel market. The infrastructure and construction sector accounts for more than 52% of the global steel consumption. This research report predicts that the increase in the GDP in the ASEAN countries will lead to excess spending in the end-user industries, creating a high demand for steel manufacturing in this region.

The supply shortage in this region is anticipated to deter the growth of the market during the forecast period. Mining mills in this region have suffered from unsustainably high operating cost and the reliance on electric arc furnace steelmaking, which has limitations on the raw material used by steel makers. With the steel supply overhauling demand, this has resulted in reduced profit margins for steel manufacturers in the ASEAN region.
