I N D I A - The Next Stainless Steel Powerhouse?

With a stainless steel demand exceeding 3 million tonnes since 2014 and an increasing focus on quality products, India is set on the growth pathway for the next years ahead

The Indian stainless steel crude production has been rising very fast, especially since 1990, when CrMn steel production started to take off. The development of CrMn steels in India was triggered by high nickel prices and a lack of domestic availability. Producers of household utensils were searching for a low cost alternative to make stainless steel affordable for the mass market.

Production in 2015 was almost 190 times higher than in 1978, 15 times higher than in 1990 and more than 3 times higher than in 2000, reaching 3.5 million tonnes in 2015. On average India had an annual growth rate of 16% since 1978. The production of stainless steel stagnated in 2014, but recovered in 2015.

The long term perspectives for India remain positive. India has been increasingly shifting focus from volume- to value-based production in the past few years. Stimulated by recent lower nickel prices, the country is producing today more 300 series and less low quality 200 and has an increasing share of high quality production than before.

Stainless steel demand has also been growing to over 3 million tonnes in 2015, making India the second largest market in the world behind China. India might not experience the Chinese exorbitant growth of the recent years, but it is set out to continue its rapid development supported by industrialization, urbanization and a “Make in India” economic policy.
