LUTON, BEDFORDSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, November 27, 2023 / -- The global high-strength steel market is expected to grow at 9.6 % CAGR from 2023 to 2029. It is expected to reach above USD 177.55 billion by 2029 from USD 36.29 billion in 2022.

High-strength steels are also known as structural steels because they are commonly used in structural applications. They can be made with or without the addition of a small amount of micro alloying components. Micro alloying elements such as CB, TI, MO, and V are used to create high strength low alloy steels, also known as HSLA steels. Because of the low carbon and alloy content, these grades have adequate acceptable formability at the strength levels and good weldability. High-strength steel is commonly used in car body structures where long-term durability is required. Complex shapes can be more difficult to form than mild steels, but successful parts can still be produced with good die design and analysis.

The global market for high-strength steel is expanding due to increased consumption of these materials in the construction and automotive sectors, which aims to improve building strength and safety features while also increasing vehicle fuel efficiency. The global market is expected to be driven by increased demand for high-strength steel in end-use industries such as the automotive and construction sectors. This is due to the increased use of high-strength steel as a substitute for traditional carbon steel in auxiliary applications for the production of lightweight automobiles in the automobile industry. Furthermore, due to the building industry's explosive demand for high-strength and lightweight materials, demand for high-strength steel is expected to rise in the coming years.
