The Global Steel Market to be Worth $1,195 bn in 2012 Says Visiongain Report PR Newswire LONDON, September 4, 2012 LONDON, September 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Visiongain's analysis indicates that the global steel market will reach a value of $1,195bn in 2012.

Construction will remain the major end-use sector followed by automotive and machinery. These aforementioned three sectors will remain the leading end use sectors during the forecast period." The steel industry will be faced with important constraints and challenges over the next decade including steel and raw materials price volatility, overcapacity, growing protectionism, and economic stagnation in advanced economies.
