The Electrical Steel Market Is Expected To Reach $33 Billion By 2026, Driven By The Growing Demand For Electricity

29 September 2022

The growing demand for electricity is expected to be a key driver for the electrical steel market in the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing economy, rapidly rising populations and increasing demand for transportation, especially in developing countries such as China, India, Brazil and some African countries. The global electricity demand is projected to grow to 38,700 TWH by 2050, and electric vehicles are expected to account for 9% of the global demand. China and India will account for a major portion of this growth. In another instance, according to Canada's Upstream Oil & Natural Gas Industry, with the global population expected to increase by about two billion over the next two decades, it is estimated that by 2040 electricity generation is expected to increase by 49%. Hence, the increasing demand for electricity is expected to drive the electrical steel market in the forecast period.

The global electrical steel market size is expected to grow from $24.80 billion in 2021 to $26.28 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.95%. The growth in the electrical steel market is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The global electrical steel market size is expected to reach $33.12 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 7.50%.
