Indian Steel Sector

Past few years have witnessed rising steel production in India while iron ore production, a key raw material, remain affected due to ban imposed on mining particularly in the state of Orissa and Jharkhand. Indigenous availability of coking coal, another important raw material, is limited and the industry has to depend heavily on imported coking coal to meet its requirement.
In this backdrop, Chinese steel export reached a new high. The impact of this increase in Chinese exports is visible in major steel consuming economies and severely felt in India. The domestic steel industry is suffering from surging imports from China and Russia driven by weak demand & depreciation of currency, on the one hand and high domestic Iron ore prices on the other.
In order to discuss these and other related issues, ASSOCHAM is organizing a Conference on “Indian Steel Sector – Raw Material Security and Rising Import” to be held on 9th April 2015 at Hotel Le-Meridien, New Delhi.
