Coated Steel Market Trends



  • Increasing demand from the building components and construction sectors drives market growth


A key component utilized in the building and construction industry is color-coated steel. It is mostly utilized in industrial applications like roofing and cladding, cold storage and warehouses, atriums in shopping centers, showrooms, artificial ceilings, lighting fixtures, etc. For architectural applications, color-coated steel offers the advantages of cutting-edge aesthetics, easier working, and 100% recyclability. Steel that has been colored serves primarily as a protective covering to shield steel bars from corrosion. Epoxy steel coatings with colored coats are particularly durable. Epoxies can endure the alkaline environment of concrete and are chemically robust. The world's construction market is booming. Construction activity is greatly booming in Asia-Pacific. According to a Ministry of Finance (MoF) report in October 2021, the Malaysian infrastructure building sector was likely to improve in 2022, growing by 11.5%, due to stronger performance across all subsectors.


According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the value added produced by the construction sector in China in 2021 was almost CNY 8 trillion (USD 1.15 trillion). In 2021, the overall production of China's construction sector was valued at CNY 8,013.8 billion (USD 1,145.62 billion). These factors are expected to drive the growth of the coated steel market revenue over the forecast period.


Coated steel manufacturers are spending money on R&D to enhance the functionality and performance of coatings. Coated steel products are becoming more adaptive and versatile due to the development of advanced coating formulations that offer higher adhesion, scratch resistance, and flexibility. Furthermore, it is anticipated that the use of cutting-edge coating technologies, such as thermal spraying and nanotechnology, will further enhance the functionality and durability of coated steel products.


To meet the rising demand for eco-friendly products, coated steel producers are putting more and more effort into creating ecologically friendly coatings. These coatings are intended to increase coated steel's resilience and visual appeal, lower carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency.


High-performance coatings that provide superior corrosion protection, enhanced weather ability, and increased durability are in greater demand. This trend is being driven by the demand for coated steel products that endure challenging weather conditions and offer durable protection for industrial and infrastructure applications.


Coated Steel Market Segment Insights


Coated Steel Type Insights


The Coated Steel market segmentation, based on type, includes color-coated steel and metallic-coated steel. The metallic-coated steel segment is expected to dominate the coated steel market throughout the forecast period. This is because electro-galvanized coated steel is being used more frequently. Compared to the continuous batch hot-dip galvanizing process, it results in thinner coatings of zinc or zinc alloy. Applying zinc coatings on intricate and small structures, like automotive components, is also profitable. Steel with a metallic coating is frequently used in the building sector for siding, roofing, and other structural elements. It is especially helpful in challenging locations where corrosion and weathering are issues, including coastal areas or areas with high pollution levels.


The color-coated steel segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the coated steel market during the forecast period. Appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, and ovens are frequently made with color-coated steel. The coating offers a variety of color options to complement the overall style of the appliance and offers a tough and scratch-resistant surface that can sustain regular use.


December 2021: Upon receiving the written order from NCLT, JSW Steel, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, invested 155 crores in finishing the acquisition of Asian Colour Coated Ispat. According to the resolution plan, JSW Steel Colour Products invested $1,550 crores in its subsidiary Hasaud Steel Ltd (HSL) using a combination of quasi-equity/debt instruments and equity.

Coated Steel Coating Insights


The Coated Steel market segmentation, based on coating, includes Polyester, Poly Vinylidene Fluoride, Epoxy, Poly Vinyl Chloride, Polyurethane, Pure Aluminum, Aluminum-Zinc, Pure Zinc, and Others. The polyester category is expected to hold the major share of the coated steel market over the forecast period. The polyester category is further sub-segmented into regular modified polyester, silicone-modified polyester, and super durable polyester. The silicone-modified polyester segment is expected to hold the major share of the coated steel market over the forecast period. The polyester coating is a common organic coating utilized in creating coated steel. To increase its corrosion resistance and endurance, coated steel is made by coating the surface of a steel substrate with a layer of protective material, such as polyester.


Due to its affordable, simple to use, and offers superior protection against weathering, UV rays, and chemical exposure, the polyester coating is a desirable alternative to coated steel. Polyester coatings are a flexible option for many applications due to their availability in a wide selection of colors and finishes.


The poly vinylidene fluoride segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the coated steel market throughout the forecast period. A common fluoropolymer coating utilized in the creation of coated steel is polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) coating. The best choice for usage in hostile settings is PVDF coatings because of their remarkable longevity, resistance to chemicals and weathering, and low maintenance needs.


Coated Steel End-Use Industry Insights


The Coated Steel market segmentation, based on the end-use industry, includes Building & Construction, Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Consumer Goods, Industrial Machinery, and Others. The building & construction category is expected to hold the major share of the coated steel market over the forecast period. This is due to coated steel's expanding use in construction and building since it is sturdy, light, and incredibly resilient. These characteristics of the coated steel result in quicker construction and simpler handling on the job site. The ideal material for renovations and additions is coated steel.


The automotive segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the coated steel market throughout the forecast period. For making substantial and high-quality vehicle parts like flooring and roofs, coated steel is a viable material. Coated steel is preferred over other types of steel because it offers corrosion protection and a durable appearance. The demand for coated steel from the automotive application sector would be strong due to the growing capacity increases in the automobile industry.
