India is the third-largest steel producer in the world. In 2015, India produced 91.46 million tonnes (MT) of finished steel.

Driven by rising infrastructure development and growing demand for automotives, steel consumption is expected to reach 104 MT by 2017. During the month of September 2016, the consumption of finished steel was estimated at 6.7 MT, showing a significant improvement of 7.6 per cent year-on-year growth.

India’s steel production is expected to increase from 100 MTPA to 112.5 MTPA by FY16 and 300 MTPA by 2025. The Government of India has allowed 100 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) in the steel sector under the automatic route.

To meet the target of 300 MT capacities by 2025, the Government is planning to come up with a new and dynamic steel policy for the sector. The government is also planning to create independent regulators for steel and mining sectors.

A new scheme, ‘The scheme for the promotion of R&D in the iron and steel sector’, has been approved with budgetary provision of US$ 24.6 million to initiate and implement the provisions of the scheme as per the 11th Five-Year Plan which has continued in the 12th Five Year Plan. The development of technology for Cold-Rolled Grain Oriented (CRGO) steel sheets and other value-added products is also included under the policy purview and is allocated US$ 6.7 million.
