Global Weathering Steel Market Is Driven By Increasing Infrastructural Development

The Global Weathering Steel Market is primarily driven by increasing demand from the construction industry worldwide. Weathering steel, also known as atmospheric corrosion resistant steel, has superior corrosion resistance properties when exposed to weathering. It forms a protective oxide skin that seals the base metal and prevents further corrosion underneath. It requires less maintenance than galvanized or painted steel as the patina acts as a barrier against corrosion. Weathering steel finds wide usage in building exteriors, bridge structures, poles, outdoor signage and more as it provides robust durability and lower lifecycle costs.

The Global Weathering Steel Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1.83 BN in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period 2024 To 2031.
