Format: Online | Last Updated: Dec 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Hot Rolled Coil Market has shown significant growth in the historic years and its demand is anticipated to reach 441.88 million tonnes until 2035 with a healthy CAGR of 4.91% in the next ten years until 2035. This is attributed to the rising consumption of HR Coil in downstream Construction, Automotive, and Machinery sectors.  Steel, being an alloy of iron with few amounts of carbon has high strength and is fracture resistant if compared to other alloys formed of iron. The carbon content present in steel ranges from 0.002% to 2.14% by weight. Changes in the concentration of carbon content in steel result in the alteration of properties of steel. 
Hot Rolled Coil are the Coil produced from liquid/crude steel. The process for the production of HR Coil is Melting and Reforming, also known as Hot-Rolling. HR Coil are made by uninterrupted rolling of steel at a high-temperature range, generally at 538 °C – 650 °C. The process is done by passing the metal sheet through rollers at high temperature, or above the recrystallization temperature of the metal. This hot rolled steel is also passed through a solution having a pH of less than 7. The metal sheets are passed through rollers several times to achieve the required thickness of the coil. Getting a desired hot-rolled product is difficult because steel starts shrinking as it gets cooled. After getting the product, pickling is done. Pickling is the process to remove the impurities and inorganic contaminants from Hot-Rolled Coil.
HR Coil are divided into three categories based on their thickness, viz. <3mm, 3mm-10mm and >10 mm. The demand for the coil of thickness 3mm-10mm is around 49% of the total market share as of 2021 and is expected to grow at a healthy pace. A tremendous increase in demand of HR Coil is supported by growing demand in construction and automotive sector. HR Coil having thickness more than 10mm holds around 28% of the total market share followed by HR Coil of thickness less than 3mm as of 2021. The demand of HR Coil of thickness more than 10mm is anticipated to show a decline during the forecast period because of the substitution of HR Coil of thickness 3mm-10mm. Some alteration in the composition of HR Coil of thickness 3mm-10mm results in desired strength along with an optimum weight of the material.
HR Coil are used in a wide range of applications including rebars, TMT, wires, sheets, rods, plates, etc. The main end-use industries of HR Coil are Construction, Automotive, Machinery, and other sectors. Growing demand for TMT, wire, rods, rebars in construction sector is expected to boost the HR Coil market in the forecasted years. 
The global HR Coil market grew at a steady pace during the historical years. However, there was a reduction in demand due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the year 2020, growth in the demand of HR Coil saw a decline as the automotive and construction sector suffered a setback due to restrictions imposed during that timeframe.    
Among different regions, Asia Pacific holds the largest share in the Hot Rolled Coil market followed by Middle East & Africa. The Asia Pacific region is likely to dominate the market for the forecast period supported by growing infrastructure, rising demand from automotive industry coupled with government favourable policies. China and India are the leading exporters of Steel and Steel products and being the leading economies in the Asia Pacific, these countries hold around 40%-45% of the total capacity of the Asia Pacific region.
