Metals have been one of the core drivers of industrialization. Among metals, steel has historically held a dominant position. As raw material and intermediate products, the production and consumption of steel are widely regarded as indicators of economic progress. Thus, it would not be an overstatement to say that the steel industry has always been at the forefront of industrial development and forms the backbone of any economy.
Bangladesh is one of Asia’s blooming emerging steel markets and has a growing need for raw materials and steelmaking technologies. Now, Bangladesh has a $5.9 billion industry with 8 to 8.5 million MT of annual production capacity. Now around 45 rolling mills are operating in Bangladesh. In the past few years, a good number of steel and re-rolling mills were set up in Bangladesh.
