Weathering Steel Market Research, 2031

The global weathering steel market size was valued at $1,011.0 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $2,039.1 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2022 to 2031. Weathering steel is a family of low carbon steels that have additional alloying elements mixed with the carbon and iron atoms. These alloying elements give weathering steel better strength and more corrosion resistance than typical low carbon steel grades.

Rise in number of industrial infrastructure projects in different developing countries such as China and India is a major factor driving the growth of the market. In addition, the recovering construction industry is leading to rise in demand non-residential infrastructures, which is in turn driving the weathering steel market growth.

However, fluctuations in price of raw materials for manufacturing the weathering steel is leading to high cost for manufacturers, which in turn is limiting the growth of the weathering steel market share.

Weathering Steel Market by Type

Furthermore, during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, construction, manufacturing, hotel, and tourism industries were majorly affected. Manufacturing activities were halted or restricted. Construction and transportation activities, along with their supply chains, were hampered on a global level. This led to decline in manufacturing of weathering steel as well as their demand in the market, thereby restraining the growth of the market. Conversely, industries are gradually resuming their regular manufacturing and services. This led to re-initiation of weathering steel companies at their full-scale capacities, which helped the weathering steel market to recover by end of 2021.

Analyst Review

The weathering steel market has observed significant growth in the past few years, due to rise in construction, infrastructure, and urbanization sectors. Weathering steel products are employed in the construction sector for a variety of purposes, including building installations, foundations, and supports, as well as columns, panels, and walls.

Wire rods are used to make wires and are also used in engineering, aviation, and reinforcing concrete constructions. Steel wire rods are used to make reinforcement cages and assembly clamps that are circular, rectangular, or square. Companies are manufacturing and launching corrosion resistant wire rods for overseas market. For instance, in April 2021, Nippon Steel Corporation launched ZAM-EX high corrosion coated wire rod, which gives resistant performance against hot-dio galvanizing.

Moreover, companies are acquiring other companies to improve their product portfolio and to boost their production unit due to rapid rise in infrastructure and construction sector. For instance, in June 2021, Nucor Corporation acquired Cornerstone Building Brands, which manufactures weathering steel for walls and roofs and are available in variety of widths, thickness, and exterior finishes.
