Steel Variants – And the Industries That Use Them: Steel is one of the oldest and most widely used commodities in existence. Its uses span from home appliances and furniture to industrial machinery. This incredible metal is an alloy of iron and carbon with a few other things – called impurities – thrown in. Steel is graded into multiple variants or types depending on the proportion in which the components are used and the potential use of the end product. According to the World Steel Association (WSA), there are more than 3000 variants of steel. There are Four Broad Categories of Steel: It is quite difficult to classify a metal such as steel because of the sheer number of criteria for classification. Some of these criteria include: Composition Product form Production technique Finishing technique DE oxidation Strength Heat treatment The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) therefore states four broad categories of steel. Each broad category has several sub and sub-sub categories. The four broad categories include: Carbon Steels Alloy Steels Stainless Steels Tool Steels Before we venture to explain these classifications, it is essential to understand that steel is primarily made from mined iron ore combined with carbon. Several other alloying materials are also used, but iron ore and carbon are the two main components. The composition is what differentiates the four main categories. Carbon steel Carbon steel is made only from iron and carbon with no other substances. This type of steel accounts for 90% of the world’s steel production. Some other metal or mineral – such as nickel, chromium or manganese – may be used for hardening. Carbon steel, therefore, has many variants depending on the proportion of other substances used in production. Sub-categories of carbon steel are differentiated on the amount of carbon and other alloying substances used in making the steel. It may also be differentiated on the finishing technique used, the shape of the end product or the uses that the product would be put to. Alloy steel Alloy steel is made up of iron ore mixed with various chemicals such as aluminium, copper, chromium, silicon, nickel, manganese and titanium. The proportion of chemicals varies depending on the desired properties, which in turn depends on where the steel would be used. These variations form the sub-classification of alloy steel. The four most commonly used varieties are: Grade 4140 – Chromium Molybdenum Steel Grade 4340 – Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum Steel Grade 6150 – Chromium-Vanadium Steel Grade 8620 – HSLA-Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum Steel Alloy steel is used for industrial purposes such as making pipes, auto-parts and electronic machinery. Stainless steel Stainless steel – named for its property of resisting corrosion, heat and stains – is made up of iron ore mixed with 11-20% chromium, which is the principal alloy, and some nickel. Chromium gives stainless steel its corrosion resistance, and, depending on the amount of chromium used, steel can be magnetic or non-magnetic. The three broad categories of stainless steel are: Austenitic Steel: Non-magnetic-heat-treatable steel which usually contains a high proportion of chromium and 5-10% nickel. This steel is what we see in our kitchen – it is what home appliances and utensils are made of. Ferritic Steel: Ferritic steel also contains a high amount of chromium – about 12-17% – and traces of nickel and carbon along with a few other alloys. While Austenitic steel is hardened by heat, Ferritic steel is hardened by cold-pressing. Cheaper than Austenitic steel, Ferritic steel finds application for industrial purposes. Martensitic Steel: This contains 11-17% chromium and traces of nickel as well as carbon. This type of steel is used for making knives and other cutting tools as well as in dental equipment. Tool steel As the name suggests, this is steel used to make tools. Tungsten is the primary alloy used in making tool steel. It is used in combination with molybdenum, cobalt and vanadium. Varying quantities of these substances are used to make steel more or less resistant depending on the purpose or use of the steel. Other Classifications of Steel Steel products are often classified based on their shape or use. Tubular steel, flat steel, coils and roll steel are some such classifications. Another classification is based on the finishing applied to the finished product – galvanised, coated, cold-rolled or hot-rolled, among others. Source: power2sme

Amid Global Trade War, Indian Govt. is Adopting Diversified Steel Export Policy: Conventionally, Indian steel producers undertake exports when it is difficult to market more volume in the domestic market or the external market offers relatively higher realisation. The Two Scenarios: In the first case, it is known as exportable surplus and there is no conscious effort to create a permanent destination to be explored and nurtured for future shipments and due to the inevitable nature of the exports having been undertaken to clear the inventories, the efforts to negotiate a better deal are also absent. In the second case, which is a rarity as high global prices always result in higher domestic prices, a need is felt to look for a stable destination that would offer long-time prospects with a scope for negotiating a better deal which contributes to export of value-added steel, establish a competitive supply chain and ensuring business with large institutional buyers and reputed agents. The multilateral trading pattern as the above simplistic version of the market mechanism indicates has undergone significant changes giving way to bilateral treaties, free trade agreements, and pacts amongst a block of countries. Is World Trade Organisation Losing its Significance? Objective Behind the Formation: WTO (formerly GATT) that was formed in 1990s with a laudable objective of promoting free and fair trade and framed guidelines and policies to arrest predatory pricing via anti-dumping (AD) and countervailing duties (CVD), the subsidies offered by various countries to the indigenous industries, safeguarding the interest of countries affected by sudden surge in imports and declaring policies against tariff and non-tariff barriers, played its role quite effectively during the last two decades. The Reasons for the Declining Importance of WTO: For the last 6 years, the role of WTO had visibly weakened with the signing of more than 350 bilateral agreements and a plethora of AD/CVD cases. Since 2017, the world steel trade had a paradigm shift with President Donald Trump’s emergence as the protector of the US’ economic interests and the country continued to come out with all bilateral or regional treaties (Trans-Pacific Partnership, NAFTA renamed as USMCA, among others). The Dispute Settlement Body of WTO has literally lost its relevance, although India has approached it for finding a solution to the unilateral announcement of duty hike on steel and aluminium by the US. Argentina, Australia, Brazil, and South Korea have entered into quota arrangement with the US to get access to around 25-28 MT of annual imports. China has retaliated with enhanced duties on imports from the US which is in all probability going ahead with duty hike at the end of 90 days’ deadline. India has expressed its willingness to negotiate with the US before retaliating against duty hike. While the US market has created a stiff barrier to imports from other countries, EU has identified major exporting nations like China, Brazil, Turkey, Vietnam, Ukraine, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Thailand to serve safeguard duties on selected product categories. Slumping Global Market Size: The above facts establish that global trade is currently replete with significant route barriers and steel exports now require more detailed planning on the impact of concluding the export deal on the viability of the importing country’s domestic industries. As the global market size is getting squeezed, the export penetration is becoming all the more strenuous. India could export 6.4 MT of steel in the first 9 months of the current fiscal which is 29.1% lower than last year. It is noteworthy that Nepal, Italy, UAE, Belgium, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Spain, and Sri Lanka have emerged as the major export destinations totalling around 44% of total steel exports. Around 76% of steel exports from India comprised of HRC, Coated products and TMT/Wire Rods and Semis (Billets). Alloy and SS exports comprise 7.6% share in total steel exports during April-December 2018. The total finished steel exports comprised of only 8.4% of the total crude steel production in the country. This may be compared to a much higher share of exports out of total crude steel production by Japan (36%), Turkey (44%), Ukraine (71%), South Korea (44%), Brazil (44.5%), Russia (44%), Germany (61%), Italy (76%), France (95%) and China (9%). Japan has exported a total volume of 33.7 MT of steel during the first 11 months of 2018. China, the largest steel exporter has exported around 63.78 MT of steel during January-November 2018 which is, however, comprised of only 7.4% of CS production. It is no wonder that diverted exports by South Korea, Japan, and China from the US due to tariff hike have found access to the Indian market. These countries are therefore the maximum beneficiaries of a growing Indian steel market. The current market realisation in the Indian domestic market offers a still higher return as compared to the ruling global steel prices and therefore the urge to exports is not there. Judging from the trend of investment-led infrastructure demand and gradual rise in manufacturing sector in the country and subdued growth in demand in the regions other than the US and the EU (blocked partially or fully) , it is apparent that domestic steel prices would continue to move at a higher pitch compared to global price level in the coming months. Under such circumstances, it is pertinent that all related export activities (selecting the product wise destinations, fixing the supply chain modalities including hedging, price futures analysis) must be undertaken on a regular basis by Indian steel producers so that switching from domestic to exports at a short notice becomes easy and smooth. Close monitoring of the import trends (imports at 6.7 MT in the first 9 months is only 1.6% lower than last year making India a net importer) is also necessary.

Benefits of Using Sheet Metal As one of the most widely used materials in the construction industry, sheet metal is a wonderful material that can offer a variety of benefits. When bending, molding and welding sheet metal, this process is known as sheet metal fabrication. Although it’s a lengthy process, the end results are worth the wait. The improvement of technology such as lights out manufacturing has made sheet metal fabrication more efficient and advanced than in the past. Here are a few benefits as to why contractors and engineers alike are choosing this type of material. Easy to transport. Sheet metal is easy to transport due to it’s light weight. Because the material is manufactured in thin sheets, stacking a ton of material for transportation is not an issue. Weather Resistant. Sheet metal is processed using chemicals that make the material resistant to UV rays, corrosion and moisture. If there is a scratch in the sheet metal, the chemicals used to treat the sheet will prevent further damage. Malleability. Just like gold or copper, sheet metal is very malleable due to it’s thinness and low density. Sheet metal fabrication companies such as R.R. LeDuc Corporation are easily able to create a variety of objects. Durability. This material isn’t just corrosion resistant, but also relatively durable. Many homeowners have opted for sheet metal roofing or siding due to its strength. If the sheet metal ever is dented, it can be easily replaced for a lot less than replacing other materials. Versatility. Sheet metal allows contractors and engineers to think outside the box when it comes to building. Sheet metal can be used in a variety of industries: Automotive, aerospace, health, food and even artwork . The next time you crack open a can of soda — this was the work of sheet metal fabrication.

Advantages of Metal Fabrication over Plastic- Metal Fabrication Worker: Like plastic fabrication, metal fabrication depends largely on the family and grade of metal used in production. Some of the more commonly fabricated metals include steel, magnesium, iron, aluminum, copper, and nickel, each with their own various grades. Metals generally provide the following advantages over plastic fabrication: • Heat resistance: Metals typically have a higher melting-point and are less likely to degrade under elevated temperatures. • Improved strength: Metal grades tend to be stronger, harder, and more durable than their plastic counterparts. • Versatility: Metal can be fabricated through a wider range of processes, including casting, deep drawing, welding, forging, soldering, and chipping. • Cost-effectiveness: Metal is usually a cost efficient option, particularly in high-volume or long-term production runs.
As the world’s fastest growing economy, the Indian business ecosystem has surpassed China to become the 6th largest economy in the financial year 2017-18, and this growth can be accredited to large industries in the country. The manufacturing industry accounts for 26% of India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and employs 22% of the total workforce. However, contribution from the manufacturing sector to India’s GDP has remained stagnant at around 16% for the past 25 years. As India goes through a multitude of changes in the economy, the aim is set to transform India into a global manufacturing hub. With MSMEs being the largest employers in India, providing employment to 110.9 million people, it is crucial for India to tap the potential of the MSME segment. The MSME segment is in dire need of a level playing field, with not only great policies and campaigns but also with proper implementation of those policies. Fueled by the backbone of the Indian economy - MSMEs, the Indian manufacturing sector attributes to one-third of the total GDP of the country. Along with that, India is expected to have the youngest demographic in the world with 64% of the population in the working age group by 2020. This demographic, powered with a boost in the economy holds the potential to give the country an unprecedented edge, and could add a significant 2% to the GDP growth rate, making it an extremely fertile environment for entrepreneurship. Constraints such as high cost of credit, low access to new technology, inadequate infrastructure facilities, and lack of access to international markets have factored in the growth stagnancy. For the Indian ecosystem to push the growth of the MSME sector, the following steps need to be undertaken: Access To Finance The present market conditions do not provide enough opportunities for the MSME sector for raising low cost funds. To improve the flow of credit, it is imperative to develop low cost financing solutions. A transparent credit rating system, simplification of processes to access finance and interest rate subvention are some steps that can be taken for this. Enhancing Market Access For MSMEs To withstand the onslaught of competition from large enterprises within local and international markets, MSMEs need to be able to respond quickly to evolving innovation and technology advancements. In order to sustain and further amplify the sector’s contribution towards employment generation, exports and manufacturing capabilities, MSMEs need to be provided with better market access. Access To Infrastructure MSMEs can benefit from improved infrastructural facilities in terms of economies of scales. Government programs can be introduced for integrated workspaces with the objective of establishing clusters, with facilities such as power plants, training centers and processing units available to all MSME units. Furthermore, as a consequence of expanding markets, advanced technological expertise is required for manufacturing. Provision of proper tools, skilled labour and modern technology support, which require high investments, can be developed on a cluster basis. This development process needs to be supplemented with common effluent treatment plants, proper water supply distribution, design centers and ample captive power. Conclusively, it is clear that with access to better infrastructure, enhanced markets, and proper financial solutions, along with other factors, the MSME segment has a large scope to grow and boost the GDP of India, thereby making it a true global economic powerhouse in the manufacturing sector.
