Galvanized steel sheets are used in many industrial applications such as construction materials, automobiles, and electrical appliances. These products offer high strength, lightweight, formability, and recyclability. The use of galvanized advanced high-strength steel helps in the reduction of body weight and emissions in automobiles. It also improves safety, performance, and fuel efficiency, which are the primary requirements of modern automobiles.
Competitive vendor landscape
The galvanized steel producers are dependent on steel and zinc. The global steel market is highly fragmented with the presence of many global and regional vendors. There is high competition among the vendors, which has resulted in lower steel prices and reduced profit margins. In addition, the steel demand has decreased over the past few years, leading to excessive capacity in the market and intensified competition among the vendors.
“The market vendors also faced threats from the Chinese steel producers that were exporting steel products at relatively lower rates. However, during the forecast period, it is expected that excess steel producing capacity of China will shut down. This will bring down the production of steel in China and reduce exports,” says Chandrakumar Badala Jaganathan, a lead metals and minerals analyst from Technavio.
