Global Special Steel Market Report 2021-2026: Growing Requirements and Demands for High-strength Steels

10 June 2021

Hyperion Metals Limited is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Blacksand Technology, LLC (“Blacksand”) to investigate the commercial development of spherical titanium metal powders using the GSD technology and an option to enter into an exclusive license agreement for the patents associated with the technology (“the Agreements”).

The "Global Special Steel Market (2021 Edition) - Analysis By Type (Gear, Bearing, Alloy, Others), End User, By Region, By Country: Market Insight and Forecast with Impact of Covid-19 (2021-2026)" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Special Steel Market was valued at USD 198.87 Billion in the year 2020.

Steel demand, steel supply capacity, steel trade flows and input materials all impact the sales prices of steel products globally. Steel prices have been increasingly volatile and unpredictable in recent years and the Covid-19 pandemic has not contributed to stabilize prices.

Requirements and demand for improved material and energy efficiency, as well as for productivity, are important drivers leading to the growing use of high-strength steels, which provide advantages in the form of stronger, lighter and more durable steel solutions. In emerging markets, including Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia, where the use of high-strength steels is still relatively low, the market potential for high-strength steels is even higher than in mature markets like Europe and North America.

Steel demand started to show signs of improvement in early 2020 after a challenging second half of 2019, but soon faced severe headwinds due to the coronavirus outbreak. In general, apparent steel demand held up relatively well in the beginning of the outbreak as customers restocked to mitigate future supply disruptions, but demand then dropped sharply across most markets and segments.

Asia Pacific region holds the major Special Steel market share with countries, such as China, Japan and India being the major contributors to the regional market. Also, increasing production of the manufacturing sector of the Asia Pacific region to cater to the domestic requirements for superior quality products and rising exports from the region are factors leading to an increased demand for special steels from the region. GCC countries are also emerging players in the steel industry which is driving the market.

The increase in the global automobile production is a major factor leading to the growth of the automotive end-user segment of the special steel market across the globe. The sector will have to invest significantly in R&D to identify new products, measures for energy efficiency and emission reduction, etc.

They may facilitate development of innovation centres in their organisations to continuously research and explore application of new-age technologies in bringing disruption in their existing business and operating models. R&D is also one of the key areas where the larger sector can collaborate to develop solutions.

The report tracks competitive developments, strategies, mergers and acquisitions and new product development.
