Steel is the backbone of all industries and the basic ingredient for growth and development of a country. Traditionally, the fortunes of the steel industry have been linked to the economic cycle of the country. Per capita consumption of steel speaks volumes about the relative position of the country on the development frontier. In India the per capita consumption of steel (65 kg) stands low in compare to developed and developing countries. Moreover, steel is completely recyclable and thus environment -friendly. Hence, a large potential exists in furthering the usage of steel in various segments of industry.
