Indian Steel Industry
India is among the top producers of all the form of steel in the world. Low cost manpower and the abundance of iron ore and coal reserves makes India highly competitive. India became the 4th largest producer of crude steel in the world in 2010 as against the 8th position in 2003 and is expected to become the second largest producer of crude steel by 2015.
The country has acquired a central position on the global steel map with its giant steel mills, acquisition of global scale capacities by players, continuous modernization and up-gradation of old plants, improving energy efficiency and back integration into global raw material sources. A new research report Indian Steel Industry Outlook to 2012 says that the, Indian crude steel production will grow at a CAGR of around 10% during 2010-2013.
The demand for steel is a derived from the demand from other sectors like automobiles, consumer durables, and infrastructure. With the government proactive incentive plans to boost economic growth by injecting funds in various industries, such as construction, infrastructure, automobile, and power will drive the steel industry in future. Led by strong demand for autos and engineering services, the domestic steel demand in India remains robust, as per Moody's sectoral analysis on Asia's steel sector. According to the analysis, the outlook for the domestic operating environment is positive, driven by robust growth in infrastructure, autos and construction and constrains on additional supply by 2011.
Some of the challenges which is being faced by the steel industry: * Government delays in allocating coal blocks for captive consumption by steel manufactures is seriously hurting the competitive edge of Indian steel sector. The same story is with iron ore. There are delays in allocating iron ore mines as well as approval for mining licenses. As a result…...

...FE to Delay Decision on $3.6 Billion Steel Plant in Vietnam Masumi Suga and Yasumasa SongDec 07, 2012 1:48 am ET (Updates with closing share price in fifth paragraph.) Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) -- JFE Holdings Inc., Japan’s second- biggest steelmaker, will push back a decision on whether to build a $3.6 billion integrated steel mill in Vietnam, its first outside Japan, as it assesses competitive risks. “We initially said a conclusion will be reached by the end of this year, but we’ll need a bit more time,” Eiji Hayashida, president of steel unit JFE Steel Corp., said in an interview Dec. 5 at the company’s Tokyo headquarters. “Things won’t go smoothly until we make sure that we’ll beat the competition as many projects are being lined up to build new mills in southern China and Vietnam.” JFE’s plan is part of a push to be closer to customers in markets where demand is surging for Japanese products such as cars. The company’s challenge will be to cope with the high cost of setting up a plant at a time when China’s slowing economy is causing a glut, said Shinya Yamada, an analyst with Credit Suisse Securities Japan Ltd. “It’s no use to go ahead with the project when the industry is struggling with excess steel supply,” said Yamada, who has an outperform rating for JFE shares. “The risk is high.” JFE rose 0.9 percent to 1,310 yen in Tokyo, paring the stock’s decline this year to 6 percent. The key Nikkei 225 Stock Average has gained 13 percent since Jan.......

Steel Industries of Bangladesh

...STEEL INDUSTRIES OF BANGLADESH REPORT ON FOCUS The report “Bangladesh on its way of becoming self sufficient in rod production, export is also a possibility” by Shuvankar karmakar, that was analyzed here, was published in the Daily Prothom Alo, on 17th November, 2012. BACKGROUND Bangladesh Steel industry is emerging as one of the major industrial sectors of the country. It consists of small up to the largest scale of steel melting and re-rolling factories across the country that mostly produce deformed bar rod of different grade (40, 60, 500), angel, channel and coil for the construction industry. Though the history of Steel Industry is not older one but it can make a glorious future. Before 1971 Bangladesh did not have any steel mill and even after the liberation there were only a few steel factories in the country. In 1990s the actual development began in this sector through a revolution. During that period the building constructing agencies or developer companies came forward to build modern infrastructure. Then with the increasing demand, new investors started investing in steel or rod production. In 2012 we have almost 400 mills across the country including Dhaka, Chittagong. Although most of them are manual steel plants, 30 mills among them are automated. Many steel producing companies have gained reputation as a brand. Among them, BSRM, KSRM, Anwar Steel, AK steel, Rahim steel, Abul khayer Group are worth mentioning. Today the highest steel producing company......

Steel Industry Report

...Introduction to the industry Metals have accompanied mankind since ancient ages, and steel, if we begin to follow it from the moment of its historically famed damascene form - for some millennia.  From the era of craftsman-like small-scale production to today's form of industrial mass production, steel has covered an intricate path lined with significant innovations in production processes, development of range and quality of products, and perpetually growing productivity of labour, improving economies and ecological load. In addition, a radical change in relationship to the customers is occuring at the end of this century, namely by a pronounced shift of readiness towards the needs and requirements of these customers.  Steel's indisputable significance is confirmed by the fact that it has become the second most mass-produced commodity after cement production, attaining the world-wide production volume of approx. 750 mil tons yearly. The art of iron production from ore arose in connection with the practices of copper and lead technologies in Anatolya, in northern Syria and possibly also in part of Iran. Iron ores were added as fluxes for treatment of sulphide copper ores. Iron drops, which the local manufacturers identified already 3000 years BC, comparing these with meteoritic iron, already hinted at the existence of the possibility of producing iron, but this only occurred practically 15 centuries later. Since that time, it is necessary to reckon that only small amounts of......

The United States Steel Industry

...THE UNITED STATES STEEL INDUSTRY * Porter’s five forces model * Risk of entry by potential competitors * Absolute cost advantages: From this case we can identify that steel industry in different categories has various type of cost advantages. For eg: those small steel makers minimills who used arc furnaces to smelt and produce scrap steel which usually cost lower than large established companies who used iron ores that requires huge investment and tends to raise their cost. More over another absolute cost advantage that had over established companies are that they used and located in rural areas where labor costs were relatively low and established companies used unionized labor and in flexible work rules that increases their cost. As a result we can say that absolute cost advantage was achieves by small steel maker but established industry did not have any cost advantage * Customer switching cost: Basically customer considers steel as a commodity type good as mentioned in the case for which they could easily switch from company to company and they took this as an opportunity to bargain down prices further. * Government regulations: as mentioned in the case low trade barriers took away market share away from companies that once dominated the industry. This led to creation of many new small companies that could operate at low cost which resulted in intense competition and lost profits * Rivalry among established companies: Rivalry among......

Indian Beverage Industry

...The Indian food and beverage industry (not including alcoholic beverages) was valued at approximately $200 billion in the year 2007, according to a FICCI-Technopak study, and is expected to grow to $300 billion by 2015. Of course, not all of this produce goes in for processing, and the food processing industry is therefore estimated at a smaller $70 billion. Beverages, primarily packaged tea and coffee, milk-based packaged drinks, carbonated drinks and fruit-based drinks account for a small proportion of the industry, a little more than $6 billion. The food and beverage industry is considered a priority sector by the government, since it has potential for generating employment in both urban and rural areas. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the industry already employs over 1.6 million workers directly, besides its impact on other sectors such as agriculture, logistics and retailing. The food and beverage industry covers many sectors, and the Ministry of Food Processing has broadly divided into the following areas: Dairy processing, Fruits & Vegetable processing, Grain processing, Fish, meat & poultry processing and lastly, Packaged goods such as beverages, snacks, bakery products, convenience/ready-to-cook foods. Currently, many units in the food processing industry work in the unorganised sector, but the share of organised industry is expected to grow, gradually. The packaged food, industry is expected to be a significant contributor to this......
