The UK market for structural steel was severely affected by the economic downturn, with the market contracting substantially between 2008 and 2012. Activity started to slowly improve in 2013 and demand strengthened in 2014 as construction activity returned to stronger growth. Over the next five years, demand is anticipated to be driven by the industrial and commercial build sectors and by infrastructure projects in the transport and energy sectors. Although the market is expected to continue to return to more sustained growth, tight profit margins and intense competition remain of concern in the industry
