Electrical steel also referred to as (lamination steel, silicon electrical steel, silicon steel, relay steel transformer steel) is a soft specialty magnetic steel which is produced by customizing the magnetic properties of usual steel in order to achieve improved efficiency, low power loss per cycle, high permeability and low core loss in electrical components. It is used in the production of various devices such as core of generators, electric motors; small relays power transformers, inductors, battery among other equipments.
They are mostly used for lamination methods in the cores of electrical components and are designed to provide high magnetic flux density, increased resistivity, reduced dissipation of heat, reduced carbon dioxide emission alongside other functions and are widely used in the automotive, energy and manufacturing industries, among others.
These high-power steels are more environment-friendly, can store the energy for long and can be used at the time of need for which they are highly desired to be used in appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators, and high-power coolers.
The global electrical steel market is anticipated to witness growth at a more than healthy CAGR in the years to come.
The growth of this market is attributed towards major relying factors including; the globally increasing infrastructure activities, the rapidly rising demand in power sector, the surge in industrialization worldwide, the robustly growing investment in infrastructure development, the growth in infrastructure demand leading to the increasing per capita consumption of electricity, the increasing usage of electrical steel in power industry, the rapidly shifting of developed and developing economies in the direction of sustainable and efficient energy systems etc.
Additionally, the proliferating government regulations and policies in several countries aiming to reduce carbon dioxide emission and the usage of transformers has increased product development in order to enhance properties for the purpose of manufacturing efficient cores. This has led to the expansion of the global electrical steel market extravagantly.
Moreover, coating of electrical steels with suitable materials improve their ability to withstand stress relief anneals, punch ability, and electrical resistance. The increasing application of surface coatings of electrical steel will rapidly contribute to augment the market growth.
Furthermore, factors such as increasing application of electric steels in high-speed electronic cars, growing demand for electric steel from the automotive industry to produce various automobile components, increasing urban population, growing technological advancements, rising disposable incomes of people, growth in government initiatives, increasing urbanization, increasing demand from energy generation & transmission industries and the growth in deployment of renewable energy will further propel the growth of this market.
