Global Special Steel Market is segmented based on types, shape of steel, application, and region. Special steel is defined as steel that is used in the production of special items or parts. Special steel consists of alloy special steel and carbon steel. By taking advantage of specific chemistries and elements, special steels such as stainless and weathering provide corrosion protection.
It has been projected that Special Steel Market will grow at a significant rate over the forecast period as the scope and its application are rising enormously across the globe, the reason being increase in the automotive and construction industry throughout the world. Moreover, no instant substitutes of steel have made steel products a main part of daily lives of the people. Special Steel Market is classified, by type into Alloy Steel, Carbon Steel, Gear Steel, Bearing Steel, Spring Steel, and others.
Carbon steel segment held the largest market share of the Special Steel Market and is expected to lead the overall market during the forecast period. Carbon steel is a mild steel that contains low percentage of carbon and is the most common form of steel.
In Bearing steel, electroslag treated product is mostly used in the bearings of passenger vehicle and cargo vehicle. Also, die casting hot-rolled wire rod is mostly used in the wind electric power generation bearing, metallurgical mining equipment and high precision industrial bearing. Special Steel Market is classified, by shape of steel into Flat, Long, and Tubular.
Special Steel Market is classified, by application into Construction, Energy, Shipping, Packaging, Housing, Automotive, Consumer Appliances, and others. Construction segment accounted for the largest market share of the Special Steel Market and is expected to lead the overall market. Special Steel Market is segmented, geographically into North America, Europe (Eastern Europe, Western Europe), Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa.
Globally, Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest market share of the Special Steel Industry and is expected to remain dominant over the forecast period. The reason for the growth is the presence of key consumers that take up capital intensive projects, along with the availability of technical expertise. On the other hand, North America and Europe are expected to grow at fastest pace with the expected CAGR over the forecast period.
