Top Steel Stocks for Q2 in India 2022

Steel is one of those few metals that have managed to survive for centuries. It is also one of the most important sectors of the Indian economy. Almost every other sector is dependent on steel as a raw material. The construction sector uses maximum steel, followed by railways, automobiles, consumer, and capital goods etc. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration if I said that the entire economy will crumble without the steel sector. This is one of the reasons why steel stocks are always in demand. 

JSW Steel is the biggest steel stock in India with a market capitalisation of Rs 1,59,923 crore (March 12, 2022). In the last one year, the stock has rallied by nearly 54%. The second biggest steel stock in India is Tata Steel Ltd. Its market capitalisation is a mammoth Rs 1,57,206 crore. This steel stock has also had a stellar year as it is up by almost 75% (as of March 12, 2022). And the story continues for a majority of other steel stocks. This is despite a lockdown, which had paralysed the construction business. Yet, the demand for steel and steel stocks were at its peak. 

Now it isn’t a rocket science that investing in steel stocks is one of the best long-term investment strategies. After all, you are betting on India’s development, which will not be possible without the steel sector. This makes steel stocks evergreen stocks for investment. So, as long as India keeps on developing, steel stocks will stay in flavour. 

But which steel stocks should you invest in? Which steel stocks will be able to match India’s growth projection? Now there are a total of 106 steel stocks in India, listed across the NSE and BSE. Don’t worry, you don’t have to study or even invest in all of these 106 steel stocks. We have shortlisted five of the best steel stocks in 2022. But first, a word on India’s steel sector and what the future of steel sector looks like. 

The Future of the Indian Steel Sector 

Did you know that India is the second largest producer of steel in the entire world? Yes, as of October 2021, India produced nearly 9.8 metric tonnes of steel. This puts us ahead of Japan but behind China.

Apart from catering to global steel demand, the steel sector in India also contributes to nearly 2% to our gross domestic product (GDP). It also provides employment to nearly 25 lakh individuals. 

Since 2008, the production of steel in India has gone up by 75% and the demand for domestic steel is up by 80%. And this demand is expected to increase further in the coming years. Why? Well there are a few reasons why steel is the sector to watch out for in the coming years – 

  1. The average per capita consumption of steel in India is 69 kgs. This is 67% lower than the global average of 208 kgs. 
  2. The construction sector accounts for nearly 60% of the demand for steel. The government is launching smart cities and affordable housing projects across the country. Who will fulfil this demand? The Indian steel industry, of course. This will also increase India’s per capita consumption of steel. 
  3. The major focus of the government in the coming years is on the defence, infrastructure, real estate and shipbuilding sectors. All of these sectors use steel as a crucial raw material. So, all the incentives and allocations that the government makes in these sectors are indirectly helping steel companies. 
  4. The government has also approved of the PLI scheme for speciality steel. They are planning to spend Rs 6,322 crore between FY 2024 to FY 2030. This investment will boost the domestic steel market in India. 

We believe that the steel sector in India is going to have a huge growth spurt in the coming years. But which steel stocks look the most promising? We will discuss the top four steel stocks in India as per market capitalisation shortly. But before that, here’s the list of all the steel stocks in 2022 listed on Indian stock exchanges.
