Carbon Steel Market – A Global Strategic Business Report

This post was originally published on this site

Portland, OR — (SBWIRE) — 11/07/2017 — Progressive Markets has added a report, “Carbon Steel Market – Size, Trend, Share, Opportunity Analysis, and Forecast, 2014-2025″, according to which the market is growing at a considerable CAGR.

Also known as plain carbon steel, carbon steel is an alloy that constitutes carbon and iron. The alloy has carbon content up to 2% by weight. This presence of carbon lends hardness to the alloy. Steel can be considered as carbon steel where there is no minimum amount of substances such as chromium, cobalt, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, zirconium, or any other element to be added to achieve a desired alloying effect. One of the most widely used among steel composites, carbon steel is classified into low carbon steel, medium carbon steel, high carbon steel, and ultrahigh carbon steel. The classification is based on the amount of carbon content in the carbon steel. Low carbon steel contains 0.05 – 0.25% carbon, medium carbon steel contains 0.29% – 0.54% carbon, high carbon steel contains 0.55% – 0.95% carbon, and ultrahigh carbon steel contains 1.25 to 2.0% carbon.

Carbon steel has a wide number of applications. Low carbon steel, which is the most abundantly used and cost effective among the types of carbon steel, finds uses in shipbuilding, wires, vehicle bodies, fencing, railings, and domestic appliances. Medium carbon steel finds applications in buildings, bridges, axles, gears, shafts, rails, pipelines, cars, and more. High carbon steel, which has a much higher tensile strength, finds applications in cutting tools, blades, punches, dies, and more. Ultrahigh carbon steel has remarkable structural properties and finds applications in blades, cutting tools, large machine parts, hot water radiators, industrial castings, cooking pots, and more.

Drivers and Restraints

According to the market report, factors such as the growth in the construction industry and the abundant use of steel in the automotive industry are providing an impetus to the growth of the carbon steel market. On the other hand, the property of ductility which limits carbon steel’s use for welding purposes is a factor that limits the growth of the market.
