Metal consumption by the aerospace sector is expected to increase during the forecast period, thus driving the iron and steel mills and ferroalloy manufacturing market.This is mainly due to the rise in air travel is leading to increased demand for commercial aeroplanes.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), there was around 3.8 billion air travellers number is expected to rise to 7.2 billion by 2035. Similarly, according to Boeing, approximately 42,730 new jets, valued at $6.3 trillion, will be required over the next 20 years, to meet rising passenger traffic and upcoming aeroplane retirements. This will require significant metal consumption, especially aluminium, this will drive the iron and steel mills and ferroalloy manufacturing market in the forecast period.

The outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the iron and steel mills and ferroalloy manufacturing market in 2020 as supply chains were disrupted due to trade restrictions and consumption declined due to lockdowns imposed by governments globally.COVID-19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing.

The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, the Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China and spread globally including Western Europe, North America and Asia.Manufacturers depend heavily on the supply of raw materials from domestic and international suppliers.

As many governments restricted the movement of goods across countries and locally, manufacturers had to halt production due to a lack of raw materials.The outbreak hurt businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021.

However, it is expected that the iron and steel mills and ferroalloy manufacturing market will recover from the shock across the forecast period as it is a ’black swan’ event and not related to ongoing or fundamental weaknesses in the market or the global economy.

Companies in the iron and steel industry are increasingly using recycled steel as a raw material to manufacture new steel products for enhancing scrap management and energy savings.Steel recycling involves the collection of metal scrap, melting in furnaces at high temperatures to produce blocks, ingots and sheets, and supplying them to manufacturers for production.

The metallurgical properties of steel allow it to be economically favourable and recyclable.Manufacture of metal products from recycled steel is an eco-friendly process as it consumes less energy, minimizes the need for mining, reduces Co2 emissions and decreases metal wastage.

According to the Bureau of International Recycling (BIR), 35.5% of recycled steel (or steel scrap) is used in crude steel production globally, where 17.8% was used in China, 55.5% in Europe, 72.1% in the USA, 34.2% in Japan, 43% in the Republic of Korea, 80.8% in Turkey and 39.9% in Russia.
