Steel market in India can be segmented based on the type, production method and region. Based on production method, the market can be segmented into electric arc furnace, blast furnace-basic oxygen furnace, among others. Electric arc is the preferred method for the production of steel as it uses electric arc to melt scrap and convert it into liquid steel. Also, use of electric arc helps to bring down the use of cooking coal in blast furnace, thereby driving growth of this segment.  

Some of the players in the steel market of India include JSW Steel, Tata Steel, Steel Authority of India Limited, Essar Steel Limited, Jindal Steel & Power Limited, Arcelormittal India Private Limited, Jindal Stainless Steel Limited, Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal India Private Limited, Outokumpu India Private Limited, POSCO India Private Limited, Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited, Godavari Power & Steel Limited, Baosteel Group–Wuhan Iron and Steel Corporation and Maharashtra Seamless Limited.
