Steel is unarguably one of the most essential and fundamental materials in buildings and infrastructure. Construction has always been the most significant industry for steel application, which accounts for over 50% of the world's steel demand. Accompanied by the rapid growth of urbanization and the continuously growing world population, the demand for buildings and infrastructure also continues to rise, which results in the expected increasingly high demand for steel in the construction sector.
