Electrical Steel Market - Overview
Electrical steel is used in high-power consumer appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators, and high-power coolers. Consumer appliance manufacturers are focusing on using electrical steel that is environment-friendly (less heat losses) instead of regular steel. This helps them save around 15% to 30% of energy. Electronic components made from electrical steel that are used in consumer appliances include compressor motors and relays. These appliances are installed in cabins, confined spaces, or rooms; therefore, they are ideally required to be compact owing to space constraints. Hence, electrical steel used in compressor motors, relays, switches, etc. enables consumer appliance manufacturers to lower product size and also offer products with reduced noise output vis-à-vis those appliances that are manufactured with components made from regular steel.
Recently, amendments were carried out in trade policies of the global electrical steel market. These amendments were at regional and global level and were implemented for the ease of trade between nations and for their own regional business prospects. Amendments included setting up a minimum price for the import of particular grade of electrical steel from particular regions/countries. The anti-dumping duties were modified in order to avoid the oversupply of electrical steel in some markets. There were changes in legislatures such as advancements of free trade agreements (FTA) and negotiations with transpacific partnerships. Furthermore, the European Union decided to set a minimum price for the import of a particular-grade electrical steel from Japan, China, South Korea, Russia, and the U.S. Government initiatives as well as liberalization of policies are expected to offer lucrative opportunities to electrical steel companies. According to Canacero, a steel association, steel exports are falling in Mexico. Exports dropped 25% in January-July 2015. Some economic risks identified by Mizuno (Malaysia’s Steel Association) can affect the global electrical steel market. They include high unemployment in developed markets, slowdown in developed markets and China, and financial issues in Europe.
