Steel Rebar Market Drivers and Restraints

Steel rebar, also known as reinforcing steel or reinforcement steel, is a vital component in the construction industry as it provides strength and support to concrete structures. The market for steel rebar is driven by several factors, including:

  1. Increase in construction activities: The growth in the construction sector, particularly in developing countries, drives the demand for steel rebar. As more buildings, bridges, and infrastructure are constructed, the demand for steel rebar increases.

  2. Government initiatives: Government initiatives such as public-private partnerships (PPP) and affordable housing projects also drive the demand for steel rebar.

  3. Replacement of old infrastructure: The need to replace old and deteriorating infrastructure also drives the demand for steel rebar.

However, the market for steel rebar is also facing some restraints, including:

  1. Volatility in raw material prices: The price of raw materials used in the production of steel rebar, such as iron ore and coking coal, can be volatile, which can affect the cost of production and ultimately the price of steel rebar.

  2. Overcapacity: In some regions, there is an oversupply of steel rebar, which can lead to lower prices and lower profit margins for manufacturers.

  3. Environmental regulations: Environmental regulations, such as those related to emissions and waste disposal, can increase the cost of production for steel rebar manufacturers.

By type, deformed steel rebar accounted for the largest share in 2021

Steel rebar market id divided into two types i.e; deformed steel rebar and mild steel rebar. Deformed steel rebar is expected to witness significant growth because of its high-strength capabilities compared to mild steel rebar. Also, government mandates to promote the use of high-strength rebar grades to increase the lifespan of construction structures will support the growth of deformed steel rebar. The advancement in developing new  high-strength deformed steel rebar grades in countries such as China, the US, and India will drive market growth during the forecast period.

By Bar Size Type

  • #3 Bar size
  • #4 Bar size
  • #5 Bar size
  • #8 Bar size
  • Others

By Coating Type

  • Plain Carbon Steel Rebar
  • Galvanized Steel Rebar
  • Epoxy Coated Steel Rebar

By ProcessType

  • Basic Oxygen Steelmaking
  • Electric Arc Furnace

By Process, basic oxygen steelmaking accounted for the largest share in 2021

High efficiencies in the mass production of steel rebar and superior quality finished products make Basic Oxygen Steel (BPS) a preferred process for steel rebar manufacturing. BOS is a traditional process of manufacturing steel rebar, which is costlier than the electric arc furnace process. BOS is preferred because of its high production rate, low nitrogen content, and low labor requirements.

By End Use Sector

  • Infrastructure
  • Housing
  • Industrial

By Region

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific (APAC)
  • South America
  • Middle East Africa

Low-cost labor and cheap availability of lands in  Asia Pacific region attract foreign investments further helping industrial sectors grow rapidly. Rapid economic growth, increasing urbanization, increasing investments by the government to setup new industries and  high growth in the infrastructure sector will lead to the increase in construction activities, which helps to increase the demand for steel rebar. China was the region's largest market for steel rebar in 2021, followed by Japan, India, and South Korea. Asia Pacific region is projected to witness a steady increase in consumption between 2022 and 2030.
