Europe Steel Market Report 2021-2025 – Emerging Role of Steel in Renewable Energy Sector / High Consumption of Electrical Steel in Transformers and Motors / Accelerating Demand for Finished Steel

DUBLIN, July 19, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The report “Europe Steel Market (Production, Imports & Exports) with the Potential Impact of COVID-19: 2021 Edition” has been added to’s offering.

The European steel market is expected to reach $ 107.5 billion in 2025 with a negative CAGR of 3.03% for the period 2021-2025.

Factors such as the growth in automobile production, the increasing use of large household appliances, the increase in sales of construction and heavy machinery, the accelerated demand for finished steel products, and rapid urbanization would generate market value.

However, the proliferation of electric vehicles and the volatility of steel prices are the challenges facing the market. Some notable trends may be the emerging role of steel in the renewable energy sector, the high consumption of electrical steel in transformers and motors, and the introduction of green steel.

The steel market is heavily concentrated in a few large companies, as the importance of economies of scale favors concentration in larger companies. However, since the steel market is still very cyclical, it is subject to intense competition.

Some of the major challenges steelmakers face include: volatility, shifting centers of demand, complex supply chains, productivity and cost efficiency. The market is also influenced by general economic conditions and consumer markets, including the automotive, appliance, construction and energy industries. As these industries are experiencing a downturn, the steel market usually follows their trend.

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated the European steel industry as companies have been forced to close and business operations have ceased to curb the spread of the virus. Manufacturing plants experienced the sudden closure for a period of time. Steel mills had to focus their activities on the production of medical oxygen, which stopped the operation of oxygen furnaces. These factors have had a significant and long-term impact on the steel industry in Europe.
