Steel Structure Industry Future Trend Analysis

- May 03, 2018-

First, industrialization of steel structure housing. From the current steel structure residential projects built, the steel structure system is mature, the enclosure materials are gradually improved, the assembly process is continuously optimized, the overall performance of the housing has been greatly improved, the construction cost has a competitive advantage in the market, and the industrial development conditions have been met. The structural system is becoming more and more mature. The steel structure housing has covered low-rise, multi-storey, small high-rise and high-rise steel structure residential buildings. In addition, the proportion of domestic steel structure residential buildings accounts for less than 5% of the entire residential area, while in developed countries such as Japan, the ratio is close to 50%, indicating that the market potential is large. At the same time, the state advocates the construction of energy-saving and land-saving houses. At present, the design specifications, supporting technologies, and materials for steel-structured houses are basically available. These factors paved the way for the industrialization of steel-structured houses.

Second, large buildings use steel structures. With the non-standard industry standards, lack of top-level system design, technical systems to be completed, cost disadvantages, and public perceptions of lagging behind the elimination of bottlenecks, it is time to advance steel structure construction. At the same time, under the background of the steady progress of China's industrialized water, the decline of demographic dividends, and the rapid increase in the urbanization rate, the macroeconomic development base of prefabricated buildings with steel structures has taken shape. Under the influence of various factors, the proportion of large and medium-sized buildings using steel structures will increase year by year.

Third, the technological innovation in the steel structure industry has increased. In recent years, the steel structure industry has made considerable progress in scientific and technological investment, scientific and technological research and development, and scientific and technological innovation. However, key technologies still need to be broken through, including structural system innovation and standardization and reform, building maintenance system support and industrialization, standardization, industrialization, and information. Fusion technology, life cycle design, construction, and production integration. During the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” period, it will solve the outstanding problems of technology and personnel, form a complete industrial chain complete set of industrialization technology, and improve the production efficiency and quality of steel structures.

Finally, speed up the pace of going out. As early as during the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, enterprises in the steel industry started preparing to go out in terms of technology, talent, and layout, and carried out related work such as certification and licensing in foreign countries. Many steel structure qualified companies had already obtained , Japan, Southeast Asia market access certification; have established or established overseas business units or foreign branches; in terms of personnel, in addition to their own, but also the introduction of high-end talent at home and abroad. Therefore, under the continuous deepening of the “Belt and Road” strategy, the overseas market of the steel structure industry is expected to usher in explosive growth.

The above data and analysis come from the "2018-2023 Market Demand Forecast and Investment Strategic Planning Analysis Report of China's Steel Structure Industry" promulgated by the Prospect Industry Research Institute.
