Based on product, flat steel accounts for the larger of the Africa steel market because they are widely used in construction, heavy machinery, and automobiles. Flat steel consists of sheets and plates which are made by rolling slabs and forming a type of semifinished steel. These products are utilised in a variety of sectors, like in machinery, shipbuilding, and domestic appliances. Hot rolled wide strip steel is rolled in high temperatures and is used in manufacturing agricultural equipment, furniture, cabinets, and industrial products.
Meanwhile, long steel is anticipated to grow at a swift rate in the coming years due to the increased use in the electrical power industry, in manufacturing wire ropes for bridges, and developing tire cords for the automotive industry. Products made from long steel include rails, wire rods, billets, and blooms, which are primarily utilised in the energy, mining, and automobile sectors.
In the Africa steel market, construction accounts for a sizable market share based on end use due to necessity of steel in the construction of substantial structures like bridges and buildings. Steel has properties to bind well with concrete and is also cost effective as well as is durable. In the building of roofs and cladding for exterior walls, steel works as an excellent component. With the increasing population and urbanisation in multiple countries in Africa, and reconstruction of older buildings, the demand for housing, buildings, and infrastructure that utilise steel extensively is expected to surge. As steel supports structurally sound constructions, it is becoming a common component of various building operations in Africa.
