Indian Scenario

Steel is crucial to the development of any modern economy and is considered to be thebackbone of human civilization. The level of per capita consumption of steel is treated asan important index of the level of socio-economic development and living standards of thepeople in any country. Steel industry and its associated mining and metallurgy sectorshave seen a number of major investments and developments in the recent past.

The Indian steel industry has entered into a new development stage post de-regulationriding high on the resurgent economy and rising demand for steel.

?Rapid rise in production has resulted in India becoming the 2nd largest producer ofcrude steel during 2018 from its 3rd largest status in 2017. The country is also thelargest producer of Sponge Iron or DRI in the world and the 3rd largest finished steelconsumer in the world after China & USA.

?In a de-regulated liberalized economic/market scenario like India the Government'srole is that of a facilitator which lays down the policy guidelines and establishes theinstitutional mechanism/structure for creating conducive environment for improvingefficiency and performance of the steel sector.

?In this role the Government has released the National Steel Policy 2017 which haslaid down the broad roadmap for encouraging long term growth for the Indian steelindustry both on demand and supply sides by 2030-31. The Government has also announced apolicy for providing preference to domestically manufactured Iron & Steel products inGovernment procurement.

Opportunities for growth of Iron and Steel in Private Sector

The New Industrial Policy Regime

The New Industrial policy opened up the Indian iron and steel industry for privateinvestment by (a) removing it from the list of industries reserved for public sectorand(b)exempting it from compulsory licensing. Imports of foreign technology as well asforeign direct investment are now freely permitted up to certain limits under an automaticroute. Ministry of Steel plays the role of a facilitator providing broad directions andassistance to new and existing steel plants in the liberalized scenario.

The Growth Profile

(i)Steel : The liberalization of industrial policy and other initiatives taken by theGovernment have given a definite impetus for entry participation and growth of theprivate sector in the steel industry. While the existing units are beingmodernized/expanded a large number of new

JPC: updated in May 2019 3

steel plants have also come up in different parts of the country based on modern costeffective state of-the-art technologies. In the last few years the rapid and stablegrowth of the demand side has also prompted domestic entrepreneurs to set up freshgreenfield projects in different states of the country.

Crude steel capacity was 137.97 mt in 2017-18 up by 7.6% over 2016-17 and India whichemerged as the 2nd largest producer of crude steel in the world in 2018 as per datareleased by the World Steel Association has to its credit the capability to produce avariety of grades and that too of international quality standards.

(ii)Pig Iron: India is also an important producer of pig iron. Post-liberalizationwith setting up several units in the private sector not only imports have drasticallyreduced but also India has turned out to be a net exporter of pig iron. The private sectoraccounted for 90% of total production of pig iron (6.055 mt) in the country in 2018-19.

(iii)Sponge Iron: India world's largest producer of sponge iron (2018) has a host ofcoal based units located in the mineral-rich states of the country.
