Global Flat Steel Market is valued at approximately USD 816.15 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 2.50% during the forecast period 2023-2030. Flat steel refers to a category of steel products that are characterized by their flat, rectangular shape and relatively thin cross-section. This type of steel is produced through processes such as hot rolling or cold rolling, where the steel is shaped into flat sheets or strips. Flat steel products have a wide range of applications across various industries due to their versatility and structural properties. The Flat Steel Market is expanding because of factors such as the rapid inclusion of steel in the automotive industry, rising demand from the construction industry, and rising manufacturing and machinery production.

The ascending trajectory of the automotive industry is a compelling driver behind the robust growth of the Flat Steel Market. As the automotive sector undergoes rapid expansion globally, the demand for flat steel, a fundamental material in the manufacturing of vehicles, experiences a substantial surge. Flat steel, particularly in the form of sheets and plates, finds extensive use in constructing vehicle bodies, chassis, and various components due to its strength, formability, and durability. The International Energy Agency report, that there are more than 16.5 million electric vehicles in use worldwide in 2021, an increase of 61% is 10.2 million units in the year 2020. Moreover, according to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association, In the year 2022, around 85.4 million motor vehicles were produced worldwide which indicated an increase of 5.7% compared to the year 2021. Thus, the rising automotive industry is driving the market growth. In addition, rising investment in the energy sector, and the rising shipbuilding industry are creating new opportunities for market growth. However, fluctuation in steel prices stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.

The key regions considered for the Global Flat Steel Market study includes Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific dominated the market in 2022 owing to factors such as increased demand in industries such as automotive, rapid urbanization, rising government investment in construction and manufacturing projects in the region.
