C. Marketing and Market environment.

Iron & Steel industry is the foundation industry of any economy, especially in developing countries whose material intensity is likely to increase significantly in the future, for infrastructure development and growth in manufacturing sector. India certainly is one such economy diat is poised to grow significantly over the next decade with its per capita consumption nearly at one-fourth of the global average. A competitive and efficient domestic steel industry is a pre-requisite for Lidia to succeed in its industrial vision for 'Make in Lidia'. Lwestments in the steel sector are highly capital intensive and long term in nature, whose economic viability is dependent on the fundamental growth assumptions of the domestic economy, The Government of Lidia aims to triple the steel capacity to 300 million tonnes by 2025. In order to ensure that such capacity is viable to set up and value creating for the stakeholders, it is important to ensure that the ease of doing business is enhanced and the Indian steel industry is not unfairly harmed by low priced subsidised imports from overseas. However, in the month of August 2015, the import duty on Steel (Long Products) is increased by 2.5%.

D. Future Prospects including constraints affecting due to Government policies.

The future of the Indian iron and steel sector looks promising as there is enormous scope for increasing consumption of iron. & steel in almost all sectors in India. There is an untapped potential of increasing steel consumption in Indian even, to reach the comparable developing and lately developed economies like China and other Europe, a quantum jump in steel consumption will be required. India has rich mineral resources. It has abundance of iron ore, coal and many other raw materials required for iron and steel making.

Unexplored Rural Market - The Indian rural sector remains fairly unexposed to their multi-faceted use of steel. Enhancing applications in rural areas assumes a much greater significance now for increasing per capital consumption of steel. The usage of steel in cost effective manner is possible in the area of housing, fencing, structures and other possible applications where steel can substitute other materials which not only could bring about advantages to users but is also desirable for conservation of forest resources.

Export Market Penetration - It is estimated that world steel consumption will double in next 25 years, Quality improvement of Indian steel combined with its low cost advantages will definitely help in substantial gain in export.
