India’s Growing TMT Steel Bars Market

Although India’s IS:1786 building codes specify only Fe-415 for reinforced cement concrete, its usage is declining as the market is shifting to higher grades. The construction industry has started adopting newer grades like Fe500, Fe550, and Fe500-D. Higher value-added products like corrosion-resistant steel bars, epoxy-coated, earthquake-resistant and galvanised rebars are making their mark in India’s […]
