  • The scarcity of raw materials and high energy costs required in manufacturing is a matter of concern

Steel has observed instability in prices, the prices of raw materials like coal, scrap steel, and iron are highly fluctuating due to the supply-demand gap. Furthermore, the manufacturing cost, storage, and improper handling can impact the prices of steel. Flat steel prices are directly dependent on steel prices. Steel prices have risen due to fluctuations in demand, and geopolitical events may stifle industry expansion. 

Opportunities

  • Steel can be recycled and reused by processing without damaging the environment

  • Emerging economies and a growing worldwide population are expected to be the industry's primary market drivers

Rapid Urbanisation and industrialization across the world have led to a rise in demand for basic needs and requirements in sectors like housing infrastructure, automotive, and transportation. Flat steel is the primary material used in construction frameworks and as a support for roofing, welding structure, and sheds. The rising trend of owning multiple houses, renovation, or remodelling of houses had driven the market. The government has started many infrastructure projects has fuelled the market growth.

Challenges

  • Logistics and supply chain management, Lack of technology adoption are the challenges that hinder market growth

  • Increasing environmental concerns are reducing the popularity of steel

The steel sector is well-known for its high energy consumption. The steel industry is regarded to be the second most energy-intensive industry behind the chemical sector. As a result, it has a significant carbon footprint. Steel's appeal, on the other hand, is declining as environmental worries grow. Furthermore, the industry must adopt new industry norms. Using current energy management systems and cutting-edge technologies can help the steel sector become more environmentally friendly and competitive.

Impact of Russia-Ukraine War

The war between Russia and Ukraine had a significant impact on the steel industry globally. Ukraine and Russia are the major producers and exporters of steel. During the war two steel plants were destroyed therefore plants stopped production, and Europe, the USA, and other countries faced shortages of steel supply. Also, a Russian missile attack damaged building, and infrastructure, and caused energy outages that caused insufficient power supply. There was steel demand, but supply was less, which led to increases in price. Also, the sanctions imposed on Russia have impacted on trade cycle in every industrial sector. Hence, Russia Ukraine war has hampered the market growth of flat steel.

Impact of Ongoing Recession

The deterioration of the economy after the Russian invasion of Ukraine led to increased inflation, leading to a recession severely impacting industrial sectors. The steel market's demand has worsened for the second half of 2022 and upcoming years till recovery from the recession. Production and operational costs of steel increased, and imports and exports decreased. Due to the high cost of steel, many industries stopped projects as it was not a profitable business for them.

16. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.

 

The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
