Pakistan has an estimated aggregate steel consumption of around 7 million tons per annum in the organized sector. This translates to a per capita consumption of approx. 37 kg, nearly a fifth ofthe global average of 225 kg. Demand for steel is primarily driven by the construction and manufacturing sectors, collectively accounting for over 90% of aggregate steel consumption. Despite key challenges including structural issues as well as dumping of cheap steel from China, we feel that the industry has a positive outlook on the back of anticipated infrastructure development activities. The attached ‘Table of Contents’ provides a detailed outline of the scope of the Report.
