Mild Steel Plate Market Overview with Focus on its Applications, Leading Producers, and Prices


A mild Steel Plate is a flat piece of steel with a thickness of more than 1/4″ (0.250). It is carbon steel with low quantities of carbon. It is alloy steel as it does not have a high quantity of other elements apart from iron. The commodity is available in different grades, but all of them have high carbon content.

To enhance its properties, including tensile strength and resistance against corrosion and wear other elements are added to the steel. It finds applications in end-user applications like manufacturing, industrial and construction for structural uses.

The process to produce mild steel is similar to the production of other carbon steel. It starts with combining coal and iron ore, which are separated from the earth's crust. Both substances are softened in a blast furnace.

After melting the blend is transferred to a different furnace where leftover impurities are eliminated and other adjustments to the commodity's chemical composition are made. Afterwards, the steel is cooled off in a rectangular shape and brought to a size that is desirable by employing the hot or cold rolling methods.

Mild Steel Plates are extensively employed in the end-uses like structural, construction, and military applications. The rectangular mild steel plate is used in several mechanical and industrial applications like constructing roofs, other structures etc. It is also utilised in manufacturing offshore equipment for the shipbuilding industry.

It finds use in making pressure vessels such as boilers and tanks that can be protected from extreme temperatures and leaks owing to the properties of the steel. In the oil and gas industry it is employed to construct pipelines owing to its properties like high strength and corrosion resistance. Similarly, they are used in the automotive sector to build automobiles that are viable. The steel also finds use in road repair like fixing holes etc.

China is a leading steel producer worldwide due to the penetration of major, state-owned steel companies. India is also a significant market leader continuously expanding its production capacity efficiently and transforming the steel industry. Japan is the third largest producer in the sector while focusing on the goal of carbon neutrality in the country.

Domestically, the major end-user industries propelling the market growth in Japan are the demand from the construction, automobile, and industrial machinery sectors. The United States, Russia, and South Korea are the other major market leaders.
