2. GLOBAL & DOMESTIC OVERVIEW

The global economy recovered reasonably well in the financial year 2022-23 as the effect of new variants of the COVID-19 virus is fading. Robust policy support in advanced economies, availability of vaccines and relaxation of pandemic restrictions helped economies bounce back, collectively expanding world output by an estimated 6.1%. The war in Ukraine is expected to causes significant slowdown in the global growth in 2023-24 and add to inflation. Global growth is expected to slow down to 2.2 % in 2023-24 (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

India

The eight core industries comprise more than 40% of the weight of items included in the Index of Industrial Production (IIP). The cumulative growth of the core industries during FY 23 was estimated to be about 7.4 %. Despite being hit by COVID-19, the steel industry, one of the major sectors catered to by the Company, benefitted by the rally in commodity prices. India was 2ns top country among the top 10 steel producing countries during 2023.

OUTLOOK

The Indian construction industry is expected to receive a significant boost in 2023 which will be supported by a sharp increase in capital expenditure as part of the Financial Year 2023/2024. Budget In 2023-24, construction and manufacturing activities in India are likely to be supported by spending on infrastructure and gradual revival in automotive production, with an expected improvement in semiconductor supply. In the Budget 2023-24 the prime minister and the finance minister have announced Rs. 10 lakh crore capital expenditure plan that becomes the source of great demand for our industry.

The minister said that there is a structural shift at international level from West to East has enabled India to emerge as an epicentre of evolution and growth of the Steel sector. He said that India is set to become a power house of manufacturing which will increase the share of Steel in GDP from 2 to 5%.

Indias domestic steel demand is estimated to grow annually by 7.5% to reach 128.85 million tonnes (mt) in the current financial year. According to estimates by the Indian Steel Association (ISA), domestic steel demand stood at 119.86 mt in fiscal 2022-23. Demand is expected to rise further by 6.3% to reach 136.97 mt in the next financial year 2023-24 as per the ISA projections.

The construction industry in India is expected to expand by 5% in real terms in 2023. This estimate has been revised down from an earlier projection of 5.2% growth due to a decrease in foreign direct investment (FDI).

What factors are expected to drive growth in the construction industry

India s rich deposit of iron ore and coal are offset by countrys insufficient reserves of cooking coal . To achieve its goal of 300 million tonnes of steel making capacity as outlines in the National steel policy, India plans to rely heavily on the blast furnace method , which necessitates the use of cooking coal. However, Indias reliance on Imports from Australia to meet its cooking coal demand is subject to fluctuations in supply and price due to unpredictable weather patterns.

Though the expectation of a continued and stable recovery from the pandemic had been shaken by the war in Ukraine and rising inflation, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) had declined at $ 70.97 Billion in FY 23 as compared to US $ 83.57 billion in the fiscal year 2021-2022.
