Market Overview


Global stainless steel market is expected to register a significant CAGR of over 5% to reach to around USD 150 Billion by end of 2027.


Flat-rolled stainless steel is produced through melting and rolling, wherein the rolling process can be further categorized into two types, i.e., hot and cold. Flat-rolled stainless steel can be produced in various forms such as hot and cold sheets, coils, strips, and plates. Flat-rolled stainless steel products are preferred over other flat-rolled products due to their superior properties, including corrosion resistance, high ductility, attractive appearance, and low maintenance. Flat-rolled stainless steel is being used in various applications including water heaters, boilers, automobile parts, medical equipment, building, food processing equipment, marine components, kitchen essentials, compressor valves, and chemicals processing equipment, among others.


Hot flat-rolled stainless steel is preferred for large structural components and other applications where precise shape and tolerance are of less importance, whereas cold-rolled flat stainless steel is preferred for products requiring precise shape, durability, and good visual appeal.


The global demand for flat-rolled stainless steel market is driven by widespread use in automobile parts, kitchen essentials, and heavy machinery. The expanding construction industry with increased spending on residential and commercial construction activities is expected to drive the growth of the global flat-rolled stainless steel market. It finds use in various construction applications such as handrails, external banisters, roofing, siding, and bridges. 


The expanding automotive industry with increased production of automobiles in the developing countries is expected to drive the demand for flat stainless steel. The product is being used in the manufacturing of windshields, muffler, frames, wheels, and molded products. Additionally, the increasing industrial base in the developing countries is likely to result in an increase in the use of processing equipment, which is likely to fuel the demand for flat-rolled stainless steel.


However, the growing preference for plastic composites, magnesium, and aluminum in automobiles to reduce the weight of the vehicles is expected to hamper the growth of the global flat-rolled stainless steel market.
