In-depth Career Information –
                                       Iron and Steel

India was the world’s second-largest steel producer with production standing at 106.5 MT in 2018. The
growth in the Indian steel sector has been driven by domestic availability of raw materials such as iron ore
and cost-effective labour. Consequently, the steel sector has been a major contributor to India’s
manufacturing output. India’s steel production capacity has expanded to 137.975 million tones in FY19. As
per Indian Steel Association (ISA), steel demand will grow by over 7 per cent in both 2019-20 and 2020-21 in
the Country. The Indian steel industry is very modern with state-of-the-art steel mills. It has always strived
for continuous modernization and up-gradation of older plants and higher energy efficiency levels.

Indian steel industries are classified into three categories such as major producers, main producers and
secondary producers. In FY19, India produced 131.57 million tonnes (MT) and 106.56 MT of gross finished
steel and crude steel, respectively. India’s finished steel consumption stood at 66.46 MT in FY20 (till
November’19). India’s steel production is expected to increase from 106.56 MT in FY19 to 128.6 MT by 2021.

Steel industry and its associated mining and metallurgy sectors have seen a number of major investments
and developments in the recent past. The Government has launched the National Steel Policy 2017 that aims
to increase the per capita steel consumption to 160 kgs by 2030-31. The government has also promoted
Policy which provides a minimum value addition of 15 per cent in notified steel products which are covered
under preferential procurement. National Mineral Development Corporation is expected to invest US$ 1
billion on infrastructure in next three years to boost iron production. Government introduced Steel Scrap
Recycling Policy aimed to reduce import. As per Economic Survey 2018-19, steel production will touch 128.6
million tonnes by 2021. – (Source: India Brand Equity Foundation, www.ibef.org)
