Growing Use of Stainless Steel

India’s per capita consumption of stainless steel touched a new height of 2.5 kg in 2019, against 1.2 kg per capita in 2010, marking a 100% growth in eight years. This growth owes to its properties such as resistance to corrosion, strength, and low maintenance properties making it suitable for wide range of applications including transportation, heavy industries, and metal products.

The session will focus on the challenges to keep up with such a growth and explore new ideas of strengthening it.
