Introduction:

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. The Indian steel industry is very modern with state-of-the-art steel mills. India’s crude steel production grew by 7.4 per cent year-on-year to 95.6 Million Tonnes (MT) in 2016.

The Indian steel industry is highly advanced with cutting edge steel mills, consistent modernization, upgradation of existing plants, and high energy efficiency levels. The expansion in infrastructure activities, for example, power, bridges, dams, streets, and urban infrastructure development has boosted the interest for steel and steel items inferable from their quality, solidness, consumption resistance, solidifying capacity, formability, welding capacity, and pliability.
