Heat-treated Steel Plates Market Dynamics


The primary drivers of the market for heat-treated steel plates growth rate include factors like rising urbanization and increased demand from end-use industries. Increased demand from the manufacturing and construction sectors, as well as increased demand for infrastructure, including the production of bridges, dams, commercial centers, and engineering projects, will help promote market expansion. The market for heat-treated steel plates is expected to develop, but this is expected to be hampered by the fluctuation in raw material prices. According to estimates, the market will have a lot of chances as a result of the growing use of heat-treated steel plates in industrial machinery, energy and power, automobiles and defense vehicles, and shipbuilding. On the other hand, the market for heat-treated steel plates faces a significant obstacle due to the effects of the economic slump.


Market Drivers




  • The growing demand from the construction industry




Commercial, residential, industrial, and other public structures like bridges, tunnels, and roads all frequently use carbon steel. Steel is a strong, lightweight, and ductile material that can be used to build structures and other infrastructure. The construction of smart cities, tech parks, shopping malls, high-rise buildings, motorways, and other types of public infrastructure are only a few examples of the numerous new global infrastructure projects that have been developed recently. The modern construction sector is seeing an increase in the demand for high-strength and affordable building materials, which is anticipated to fuel demand for heat-treated steel plates over the projected period, thus driving the global market for heat-treated steel plates expansion.


Market Restraints




  • Increasing use of carbon fiber in automotive applications




The usage of carbon fiber composites in automobiles has expanded due to the demand for lightweight vehicles. By using carbon fiber composites, it is possible to lower the weight of an automobile by 40%–50% and improve its fuel efficiency by 30%–35%. Luxury vehicles like the BMW i8 and BMW 7 are being produced on a big scale with the progressive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics. Regulations pertaining to emissions and fuel economy are forcing the automobile sector to lighten vehicles, which is posing problems for the market for heat-treated steel plates worldwide. During the forecast period, these factors will have a negative effect on the market for heat-treated steel plates expansion.


Market Opportunities




  • High demand from a variety of end-use industries for heat-treated steel plates




There are new prospects for market for heat-treated steel plates expansion as a result of the rise in demand for heat-treated steel plates across a variety of end-use sectors. The construction sector has a strong need for a heat-treated steel plates market for the construction of dams, bridges, commercial hubs, and other engineering structures. In addition, a variety of industrial machinery, including hydraulic clutches, flywheels, brake drums, crane cable drums, boiler mountings, crankshafts, machine-wearing steel, etc., are frequently made from heat-treated plates. The market for heat-treated steel plates is anticipated to be further stimulated by this.


Heat-treated Steel Plates Market Segmentation


Type Insights


The heat-treated steel plates market segmentation, based on type, is carbon, stainless steel, treatment process, annealing, and hardening. The heat-treated steel plates market was prominently high under the hardening category in 2021 The steel plate is heated throughout the hardening process, and then it is slowly or quickly cooled. The plate is heated to a temperature between 850 and 900 degrees C, which is above the upper critical. The plate is once more cooled in a medium like oil, water, or air, depending on the steel's properties. Induction, an electric oven, a cooker, or gas can all be used to heat the plate


Application Insights


The heat-treated steel plates market is segmented, based on application is bridges, buildings, and offshore structures. In 2021, buildings accounted for the largest market share of the market due to a surge in urbanization and the creation of facilities, including bridges, engineering structures, and commercial hubs.

Recent Industry Developments:


January, 2023: Nucor Corp.’s new steel plate mill in Brandenburg, Ky., rolled its first steel plate on Dec. 30, 2022. Nucor Steel Brandenburg, a $1.7 billion capital investment with the ability to produce 1.2 million tons annually, will focus on final commissioning of the mill in the first quarter of 2023 and will ship the first tons to customers during the quarter. Nucor Steel Brandenburg will be among only a few mills globally – and the only mill in the United States, according to the company – capable of manufacturing at scale the heavy-gauge plate used in monopile foundations for offshore wind towers.

The recent passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, which included $300 billion for clean energy development and climate programs, supports the Biden Administration’s announced goal to build 30 gigawatts of offshore wind power by 2030. This could result in approximately 7.5 million tons of additional steel demand. According to Nucor Steel Brandenburg, it will be able to produce 97% of plate products consumed domestically.

November, 2022: Steel Dynamics Announces Planned State-of-the-Art Aluminum Flat Rolled Mill Site Selection - The planned $1.9 billion aluminum flat rolled mill is designed to have an annual production capacity of 650,000 tonnes of finished products, serving the sustainable beverage packaging, automotive, and common alloy industrial sectors. The product offering will be supported by various value-added finishing lines, including CASH (continuous annealing solutions heat treating) lines, continuous coating, and various slitting and packaging operations. The rolling mill is currently expected to begin operations in mid-2025. The company's focus on decarbonization will also be applied to this aluminum operation, including plans to use a significant amount of pre- and post-consumer aluminum scrap in its production process, supported by the company's metals recycling platform, which is the largest nonferrous metals recycler in North America.


Heat-treated Steel Plates Market Competitive Landscape


The market includes tier-1, tier-2, and local players. The key market participants generally pursue new semiconductor metrology and inspection market categories.
