Steel Market in ASEAN Countries 2015-2019
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.
Segmentation by type and analysis of - carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel
Stainless steel mostly contains 10-20% of chromium as the main alloying element and have high corrosion resistance. It is further classified into austenitic, ferritic, and martensitic.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the major trends is the growth in the renewable energy industry. In addition, throughout the region robust demand for steel in the infrastructure and construction, oil and gas, and automotive industries has been witnessed. Thus, the combination of trends and drivers is expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period.”
According to the report, the ASEAN steel market is driven by many factors. One of the major drivers in this market is the growth in end-user industries. Continuing rapid growth in end-user industries, such as the automotive, construction, and infrastructure industries, will boost demand for steel in the ASEAN region.
Further, the report states that with steel supply overtaking demand, this has resulted in reduced profit margins for steel manufacturers. Sluggish steel demand is one of the other major challenges facing the ASEAN steel manufacturing market.
