Structural Steel Industry Overview
The structural steel market size was valued at USD 96.94 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.3% from 2021 to 2028.
Infrastructural developments, in both developing as well as developed countries, are anticipated to remain primary factors driving the demand for structural steel. The growing housing needs, as a result of the increasing population across the globe, is also among the key factors driving the product demand. As per the projections estimated by the United Nations, the global population will reach 11.2 billion by 2100, which, in turn, is expected to augment the demand for new houses, thus, indirectly contributing to the growth of the market. The growing preference for sustainable materials is driving the market in the U.S.

Structural steel is considered a green construction material due to its recyclability and thus, a rising number of green buildings in the country is anticipated to propel market growth in the coming years. According to the World Green Building Council, LEED-certified buildings use 11% less water and 25% less energy in the U.S. Furthermore, green buildings help reduce harmful impacts on the environment, hence, focus on their construction is increasing in the country.
California holds the major share in the overall green buildings segment in the U.S., in terms of area, and the state is expected to achieve zero net energy by 2030. The market growth was, however, obstructed in 2020 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the World Steel Association, the demand for finished steel declined by 2.4% in 2020. The pandemic led to factory shutdowns and a shortage of labor, which disrupted the supply chain. The confinement measures froze consumption activities, which reduced demand.
The economies are striving hard to recover from the COVID-19 impact and thus, are spending on infrastructural developments, which is expected to boost the market growth. For instance, in October 2020, the Mexican government announced a USD 14.2 billion infrastructure investment plan along with private sector companies for 29 projects as part of the Economic Recovery Agreement amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
