Mild Steel Plate Price Trend

Indian steel producers hiked steel prices by 5000 INR/MT in order to compete on the worldwide market, given that Russia is the fourth largest producer of steel and contributes between 12% and 12.5% to the global market. Europe is experiencing a steel shortage. India is seeing higher demand for steel, increasing the domestic steel prices.

Steel demand in China, one of the world's top producers and consumers, is predicted to remain flat in 2022. After a slowdown in real estate activity and a government-imposed cap on steel production, China saw negative demand growth in 2021. These reasons are likely to prevail this year, but recent hints suggest that output constraints may be lifted significantly in the coming months.

Steel demand in North America is expected to rise 5.4% year over year, from 129.6 MT to 136.5 MT. The semiconductor chip scarcity, oil prices, and the infrastructure stimulus plan are all indicators that could affect steel demand in the United States. President Biden signed a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan into law in November 2021. This infrastructure bill increased funding for roads, broadband, and utilities by $550 billion.While the bill's financing would be disbursed over a 5-year period, road infrastructure projects may see an increase in funding beginning in 2022. In the second half of 2022, these projects may increase demand for mild carbon steel plate materials used in infrastructure and road plate applications.

About Mild Steel Plate

Mild Steel Plate is a kind of carbon steel plate containing low amount of carbon. Mild steel is also called as “low carbon steel” as the amount of carbon found in mild steel ranges from 0.05% to 0.25% by weight as opposed to high carbon steel, which contains 0.30% to 2.0% carbon. It is different from alloy steel and does not contain large amount of alloying elements other than iron. Owing to the presence of low carbon, it is more ductile, weldable, and machinable as compared to carbon and other steels. Mild steel is a general purpose steel that is used in most things starting from table frames to cargo ships.

Synonyms:

  • M.S. plates 
  • Low carbon steel plates 

Industrial Uses

  • Flanging and forming
  • Fabrication 
  • Atmospheric corrosion resistance products
  • Boilers and pressure vessels
  • Penstock
  • Ship building
  • Oil and gas equipments
  • Automobile body parts

Production Processes

  • Production of Mild Steel Plate via 

Production of Mild Steel Plates generally involve three major steps, viz. primary steelmaking, secondary steelmaking, and casting. Iron ore, coke and lime are obtained and melted together in a blast furnace to produce virgin steel. Once melted, the mixture is transferred to another furnace to remove impurities and make other adjustments to steel’s chemical composition with the addition of carbon and other elements, thus producing mild steel. Then, the obtained product is allowed to solidify into a rectangular shape, which is subsequently brought down to the desired size via hot rolling, cold drawing, etc.
