Global Stainless Steel Foil Market , By Grade (200 Series, 300 Series, 400 Series, Duplex Series), B

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1958300


Growing demand from end-use industry applications in developing regions and promotion of application specific grades by companies is expected to drive the stainless steel foil market during the forecast period. This market has witnessed number of key developments in terms of application specific grade developments and strategic investments in emerging regions by companies to strengthen their market position in the global market. Some of the other key factors governing the market dynamics include regulatory scenario, exchange rates, environmental constraints, and so on. All these factors are expected to have a significant impact on the dynamics of stainless steel foil market during the forecast period. 

Corrosion is one of the biggest problems for most of the end-users who need metals for various packaging applications. Due to this, manufacturers generally prefer corrosion-resistant metal packaging applications like stainless steel foil. Also, stainless steel foil is comparatively lighter and tough owing to a special coating applied to it.

Segment Analysis:

On the basis of grade, it is segmented into 200 series, 300 series, 400 series, and duplex series. The 304, 303, and 316 are most widely used in heavy industries and the construction industry owing to their super corrosion resistance, whereas the 410 and 416 grade has high tensile strength which makes them suitable for the manufacture of consumer goods.

By product type, it is segregated into long and flat. The flat tye of stainless steel foil is more commonly used in appliances and packaging, construction, tinplate, pipes and tubes, and heavy plates due to its thermal conductivity, thermal expansion of the coefficient, and corrosion resistance. Flat and long products generally include sheet piles, coated steel products, billets, slabs, rails, blooms, sections, hot and cold rolled coils, rebars, and wire rods.

By application, it is classified into automotive, transportation, heavy industry, consumer goods, and construction. The stainless steel foil is majorly used in heavy industries which include the chemical industry, heating cooling and ventilation, oil and gas industry, and pulp and paper industry. Stainless steel is widely used to manufacture equipment used in these industries. The growing power consumption coupled with the rising use of renewable energy has also propelled the market.
