One of the primary forces behind industrialization has been the use of metals. Steel has traditionally occupied a top spot among metals. Steel production and consumption are frequently seen as measures of a country’s economic development because it is both a raw material and an intermediary product.

The Indian steel industry is classified into three categories – major producers, main producers and secondary producers.
