Global Blast Furnaces Market 2019-2023: A Concentrated Market with Danieli, And Larsen & Toubro Dominating - ResearchAndMarkets.com
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2018--The “Global Blast Furnaces Market 2019-2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The blast furnaces market will register a CAGR of over 4% by 2023
The operational efficiency of an integrated steel plant is largely determined by the performance of blast furnaces. This have resulted in steel producers entering into performance-based contracts with blast furnace manufacturers. These contracts require the equipment vendors to provide hardware and services and bear most of the equipment and services fixed cost. Vendors are paid according to the financial performance of the steel plant. These performance-based contracts help the steel producers achieve improved operational efficiency and profitability. Thus, by providing equipment as a service, blast furnace vendors will be able to increase their market share and thereby boost market growth.
Large installed base of blast furnaces driving the replacement market
Approximately 70% of the world’s crude steel is produced by following the BF-BOF route in integrated steel plants. Owing to the high capital investment, integrated steel plants have to carry out production on a large scale to achieve economies of scale. This makes the exit barriers very high for integrated steel plant operators which leads to the creation of a large installed base thereby driving blast furnace replacement market growth.
Increasing popularity of steel mini mills
The production of pig iron which is a raw material in BOF is a costly process. Moreover, blast furnaces require frequent shutdown for relining and the process of starting up the furnace is also costly and time consuming. The low fixed costs and investment requirement of steel mini mills is making it a preferable option for steel production. Thus, the increasing popularity of steel mini mills is hampering the growth of blast furnaces market.
The market appears to be fairly concentrated and with the presence of companies such as DANIELI, and LARSEN & TOUBRO the competitive environment is intense.
Blast furnace vendors are expanding their software and service offerings to help the integrated steel plant operators in cost reduction, waste minimization, and quality improvement. By entering into performance-based contracts with equipment vendors, steel producers are enhancing their operational efficiency and profitability. Thus, the provision of equipment as a service by blast furnace vendors will be a key trend driving market growth.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the large installed base of blast furnaces which is driving the blast furnace replacement market. Existing integrated plant operators are the major customers of new blast furnaces as they need to replace their furnaces at the end of their lifecycle.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is the growing popularity of steel mini mills. These plants require low investment and have low fixed costs which makes them the preferable option for steel plant operators.
