India is gifted with large quantity of iron ore with high ferrous content, which is the crucial raw material for producing the steel. Hence India is one of the largest producers of Steel in the world.
With the help of liberalization, globalization of economy in the process, there is as scope for economic development, with means there will be focus on infrastructure. This will lead to considerable demand for steel. As its main applications are in the construction Engineering and automobile sectors, which are the key elements in building infrastructure, Steel is universe intermediate and has very strong forward linkages hence steel industry has become one the core sector of the economy.
Though India is one of the large steel producers, it has low percent consumption of Steel in comparison with developed countries. India is fortunate in having intensive iron ore deposits with estimated at 10.3Billion, which is more than 1/4th of the world reserves. Further the average iron ore content of India ore is above 60% in India, the iron ore reserves are mainly found in the states like Orissa, Karnataka, Bihar, M.P. Goa, A.P., Rajasthan and some parts of western Maharashtra.
When, we think of the steel Industry, the first thing that comes in to our mind is our mind is pig iron. This is because of its name. When metal from blast furnace is paired in to Moulds and solidifies it assumes a shape which resembles the back of a pig, hence called as pig Iron.
GROWTH OF PIG IRON IN INDIA:
Before liberalization the pig iron industry was monopolized by the Integral Steel plants to utilize the liberalization policy initiated by the Government of India. Decline in the pig iron production and paved the way of helping the ISP’s be utilize pig iron for Making steel to gain iron value addition.
The Integrated Steel Plant (ISP) is the major supplier of pig iron. Public Contributes up to 90% of the Pig Iron supply. According to the Steel Ministry report, demand for pig iron is estimated to increase by 37% over next 8 years.
Steel – a versatile commodity, most widely used metal in the world, forms a core Constituent of all major economies. Accordingly, Steel Consumption is a derivative of the growth pattern of its various end – use sectors viz., Manufacturing, Housing, Infrastructure, Automobile etc., that ultimately steel the country’s economy.
The steel industry is believed to have been operating at around 90 % capacity utilization factor in 2004. As per International Iron and steel Institute estimates, global steel demand has increased by around 8.8%. The strongest increase in steel consumption was recorded in North America (+15%) while the rest of the OECD India steel industry is almost 100 years old now. Till 1990, the Indian steel industry operated under a regulated environment with insulated and large –scale capacities reserved for the public sector.
Production prices were determined and regulated by GOI. The steel sector was Deregulated in 1991-92, when control on capacity and prices were abolished along with Quantitative trade restrictions. Import tariffs were also brought down substantially. In 2000-01. The Indian steel industry operated at finished steel production level of 26.7 million tonnes with apparent finished steel consumption at 26.9 million tonnes.
Today, India produces steel of international standards conforming to almost all grades and varieties and has been a net exporter for the past few years, which shows the growing
STEPS TAKEN TO BOOST STEEL INDUSTRY IN INDIA:
The union budget proposals of finance minister Pranab Mukherjee will indirectly boost the overall demand for steel. In particular, the decision to raise outlay on urban development and housing by 75% to Rs 5,400 crore and an additional 25% of plan outlay for rural infrastructure, has come as a shot in the arm for domestic steel companies.
The budget proposals will lead to a hike in excise rates from 8 to 10% which is slated to make steel costlier. \"This step was largely factored in by the industry,\" Mr.Surekha of ISPAT Industries said. Also, the proposed clean energy cess of Rs 50 per tonne on coal will lead to a hike in steel companies’ coal bill. In case of Sail, it will lead to an additional burden of Rs.50-100 crore.
Ministry of Steel, while reviewing the investment scenario in the steel sector has made an assessment that the steel production capacity in the country is likely to be130.06 million tonnes by the year 2015-16.
STRUCTUE OF INDIAN STEEL INDUSTRY:
The Indian steel industry can be divided into two distinct producer groups:
1) Major producers: Integrated steel producers (ISPs) includes large steel producers with high level of backward integration and capacities of over 1 MT .steel authority of India limited.
(SAIL), Tata steel RashtriyaISpat Nigam limited (RINL),JSW steel limited (JSWSL), Essar steel limited (Essar) and ISPAT industries limited (ISPAT)from this group SAIL, TISCO RINL produce Steel using the blast furnace/basic oxygen furnace (BF/BOF) route that uses iron ore, coal/coke has the basic input mix for producing finished steel, Essar and ISpat employ Electric ARC Furnace (EAF) route that uses sponge iron , melting scrape or a mix of both as Input and JSWSL uses COREX, a revolutionary technology for making steel using basically iron –ore and coal.
2) Other producers: This group consists of smaller stand –alone steel plants that include Producers and processors of steel.
Processors /enrollers: Units producing small quantities of steel (flat/long products) from materials procured from the market or through their own backward integration System.
Stand-alone units making pi iron and sponge iron.
Small producers using scrap – sponge iron combination produce steel ingots (for long products)
The Steel Industry, in general, is on the upswing, due to strong growth in demand propelled particularly by the demand for steel in china. The world scenario coupled with strong domestic has benefited the Indian Steel Industry.

Work Flow Model:-
The process of manufacturing the TMT Bars includes the following Sequential steps;
BENEFICIATION OF IRON ORE:
The process involved in this stage can be explained briefly as follows:
The run of mine Iron Ore is crushed and screened with the help of the crushing and screening systems. The screened fines are stocked in the silos for the next process. The screened fines are subjected to scrubbing followed by wet screening. The screen underflow is put into the hydro cyclones for cycloning and cyclone underflow is put into the spiral section for gravity separation.
The screen oversize material is ground in the primary ball and pumped back to the wet screen. The cyclone rejects are put into the tailing thickener. The spiral tailings are subjected to the magnetic separator through HGMS (High Gradient Magnetic Separator).
The HGMS will be transferred to the concentrate thickener and the tailing to the tailing thickener. The concentrate is subjected to the Ball Mill for finer grinding to meet the pelletisation size requirement.
ROLLING MILL FOR MANUFACTURING TMT BARS:
The rolled products of an integrated steel plant fall into two categories, flats and non flats. Sheets and plates belong to the first category. Construction steel like angles, channels, I-beams, wide flange beams, special sections such as zees and tees, wires, bars and rods belong to non flat category.
BMM Ispat has the rolling mill plant which produces the TMT bars from billets into various sizes from 8mm to 32mm as per the requirements.
