The Global Steel Rebar Market Size is expected to reach USD 427.42 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 5.16% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Steel rebar, also referred to as strengthened steel or reinforcement steel when used in mass, is a type of steel bar utilized as a mechanism for tension in strengthened concrete and reinforced masonry building constructions to help fortify the concrete under compression. Steel rebar considerably boosts the load-bearing capacity of the whole structure. Carbon steel is among the most widely accepted material for steel rebar, which is frequently made of hot-rolled cylindrical bars with deformed designs etched into the outermost layer. Hardened steel rebar and composite bars consisting of glass fiber, carbon fiber, or basalt fiber are also readily available. Rebar, like almost other metal goods, can be recycled as scrap. It generally corresponds to other steel components, liquefied, and re-framed. Steel rebar is available in a variety of bar sizes, notably #3, #4, #5, and #8. Steel rebar is used predominantly in industrial use, residential, and infrastructural building works.


The major key players in the global steel rebar market include ArcelorMittal, Tata Steel Limited, NLMK Group, Nippon Steel Corporation, Steel Authority of India Limited, Nucor Corporation, Steel Dynamics, Inc., Gerdau SA, Mechel PAO, and Commercial Metals Company. In order to expand the value of their products, these particular market players are engaging in partnership agreements, new product development, and investing in research and development, among other initiatives.


For instance, on May 2023, SteelAsia Manufacturing Corporation (SteelAsia), a Philippine producer of reinforcing steel bars, announced plans to open its manufacturing facility in Compostela, Cebu, by June of this year. SteelAsia's seventh steel facility will produce one million tons of high-strength rebars per year. This plant also offers welded reinforcing mesh. SteelAsia's total annual production capacity now exceeds 3 million tons, surpassing the largest rebar producer in Southeast Asia, with the opening of the new rebar mill in Compostela and the current six mills across the country.

Driving Factors

Steel rebars market expansion is being driven by the rapid expansion of infrastructure development, particularly in developing nations, as well as rising expenditures on residential as well as commercial construction as well. Furthermore, the residential sector is predicted to grow exponentially over the projection period due to reasons ranging from increased disposable income, expanding demographics, and essentially improving the standard of living. As a result, a number of nations throughout the world, including India, are proposing substantial housing and urban planning strategies to help the growth of residential construction. As a result, it is expected that this factor will boost global steel rebar market sales.


Furthermore, government-provided housing subsidies are a primary driver of the residential construction industry's expansion. The government provides rebates and financial aid to households with modest incomes. The aforementioned benefits facilitate less challenge for people to obtain low-interest loans to purchase or construct a new home. In addition, the steel rebar market is expected to grow further, as will steel rebar advancement and development, creating appealing business opportunities for both well-established and emerging market players. For instance, thermo-mechanical technology can improve steel rebar's unique properties, such as high tension, ductility, and the capacity to supply flawlessly formed structural components with a precise amount of concrete cover. Additionally, there is also a growing demand for a sophisticated range of steel rebar in corrosion-resistant, epoxy-coated, and earthquake-resistant uses. Moreover, rising government financing for public transportation, a rapidly growing population, and the development of infrastructure are some of the factors expected to drive the steel rebar market expansion.


Market Segmentation


By Type Insights

The deformed steel rebar segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

On the basis of type, the global steel rebar market is segmented into the deformed and mild. Among them, the deformed segment has the highest revenue share of 52.6% over the projection period, owing to the increased building industry in prominent nations and government regulations aimed at boosting the adoption of high-strength rebar categories to extend the lifespan of constructed structures. They are versatile with great tensioning ability and are adaptable, making them ideal for a wide range of projects such as columns, prefabricated beams, concrete cages, slabs, and other structures. During the projection period, the introduction of highly durable deformed rebar grades in countries such as China, the United States, and India will drive steel rebar market expansion. Furthermore, the production of new deformed products, such as small coils of deformed reinforcing bars, would boost market demand over the forecast period.


By Coating Type Insights

The plain carbon steel segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period.

On the basis of coating type, the global steel rebar market is segmented into plain carbon steel rebar, galvanized steel rebar, epoxy coated steel rebar, and others. Among these, the plain carbon steel segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period. Plain carbon steel rebar is utilized in a variety of construction projects when galvanized and epoxy-coated steel rebar is not required. Plain carbon steel rebar is cost-effective and has a high long-term tensile force. Plain carbon steel rebar has high toughness as well as hardness, allowing for outstanding reliability in its lack of humidity. As a result of these qualities, this type of segment contributes to the development of the steel rebar market over the forecast period.


By Application Insights

The public infrastructure segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 38.7% over the forecast period.

On the basis of application, the global steel rebar market is segmented into public infrastructure, residential buildings, industrial, construction, and others. Among these, the online retailers are dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 38.7% over the forecast period. Steel rebar demand is being driven by increased investment in large infrastructure projects around the world, particularly in the Asia Pacific area. Steel rebar is widely used in public infrastructure. Roads, motorways, bridge construction, sewage systems, airports, and stadiums are examples of projects in this industry. Steel rebar coating developments make it more robust for numerous infrastructure construction applications. Furthermore, newly industrialized nations are forecast to grab approximately sixty percent of all expected infrastructure investments, implying that these countries will continue to be important markets for steel rebar.
