August 2022, Mumbai
While our country’s infrastructure is growing day by day, India is still only at 76kgs/head consumption while the world average is about 238kgs. Therefore it is imperative Indian steel industry is given the required push and support. The government is doing its bit by declaring huge investments in infrastructure projects and thus supporting the consumption of steel.
SUFI “s main objective is to bring all steel take holders onto a common platform and help achieve the objectives of steel policy 2017 which has a target of production of 300 million tons and consumption of 160 kgs/head by 2030.
