The steel industry in India is expected to grow at around 7% p.a. feels experts. This is higher than the rate at which it has grown in the last financial year. The recent reforms announced by the Government as well as the expected monetary policy easing to be announced by the RBI may play the accelerator for growth in the steel industry. The lifting of the iron ore ban down south will also help in this regard. The US economy is showing early signs of recovery. Though China’s overcapacity and sluggish demand remains a cause of concern, the genral feeling is that the steel industy will turn around in 2013-14.
Against this backdrop, Gujarat NRE and The Economic Times present Global Steel 2014, the 9th international conference on steel and steel making raw materials.
