May 21, 2020

According to the research report titled ‘Flat Steel Market Size By Product, By End-Use, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2019 – 2026’, available with Market Study Report LLC, global flat steel market is expected to register considerable growth by the year 2026.

Technological advancements and rising adoption of flat steel products in automotive, construction, transport networks and other industry verticals are major factors driving the market growth. Flat steel products include both steel plates and steel sheets. They are produced from semi-finished steel slabs. These products find application across agriculture, shipbuilding, automobile, construction and domestic appliances.

As per the product type, non-metallic coated sheet & strip segment is poised to expand significantly during the forecast period, primarily due to their aesthetic appeal and improved adhesion properties.

On the other hand, tin plates segment is expected to grow with a CAGR of 3% during 2019-2026. Tin plates are cold-reduced low-carbon steel sheets or strips which are coated on both surfaces with tin and are lightweight. Tin coating not only helps in acquiring a good luster and appearance of tin, but also offers corrosion resistance, weldability and strength. Tin plates are widely used in packaging applications since they offer excellent printing surface. Moreover, tin coating possesses lubricant qualities and has a low melting point while imparting a good appearance. Increasing application of tin plates in automotive industry for applications such as brake line tubes, oil filters and engine gaskets is stimulating the industry outlook.
