Consumption growth of electrical steel in a wide range of applications, coupled with the global trend of energy conservation in various electrical equipment are expected to fuel demand for electrical steel coatings

Electrical steel finds its utilisation in various small and large electrical equipment, including motors, inductors, transformers, etc. Furthermore, growth of the energy and power sector is leading to an increased demand for supporting infrastructure, wherein electrical steel finds its use. This, in turn, is expected to drive the growth of electrical steel as well as coatings.

Performance analysis of the coating type segment

On the basis of coating type, the electrical steel coatings market is segmented into C2, C3, C4 C5 and C6. C5 segment is projected to account for a major share of the global electrical steel coatings market through 2026. The physical and chemical properties imparted by the C5 type of coating makes it the coating of choice for electrical steel. In 2016, the C5 segment dominated the global market with more than two-third revenue share, followed by the C6 and C3 segments respectively.

The C5 segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period to reach a market value in excess of US$ 265 Mn by the end of 2026. The demand for C5 coating – applied on both grain and non-grain oriented electrical steel – is expected to remain high across various regions. On the other hand, the C6 segment is estimated to exhibit a steady growth rate through the forecast period. C3 segment, witnessing a CAGR of 3.1%, is expected to represent 3.8% share of the total incremental opportunity created between 2016 and 2026.
