Steel in Automotive


900kg of steel is used per vehicle on average.

The automotive sector accounts for roughly 12% of the overall global steel consumption.

Advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) are now used for nearly every new vehicle design.

Steel has a lower level of CO2 life cycle emissions than any other form of automotive material.

As the critical material in the automotive industry, steel has a broad range of yield strength with a high modulus of elasticity. Steel is also considered the preferable material in automotive applications due to its relatively low costs. In addition, automotive steel is lightweight thus fuel-efficient, making steel an ideal material for combat against climate change, a significant issue for the automotive sector, which is a substantial contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Being endlessly recyclable, steel provides a sustainable and cost-effective solution for the continuously growing automotive industry. Furthermore, steel is a versatile and durable material that enables creative designs, flexible remanufacturing, and affordable repairs.
