Galvanized steel is among the most popular steel types because of its extended durability, having the strength and formability of steel plus the corrosion protection of the zinc-iron coating. The zinc protects the base metal by acting as a barrier to corrosive elements, and the sacrificial nature of the coating results in a long-lasting and high-quality steel product.

The products have high strength and are deployed in sturdy structures. Furthermore, these products are thin and lightweight, which makes it easy to transport. They are also ideal for use in different weather conditions as they provide moisture and corrosion resistance. Some other advantages of using sheet metal include its durability, recyclability, and widespread availability, making it a suitable choice for the construction sector.
The global Sheet Metal market is forecasted to grow at a rate of 4.6% in terms of value, from 2020 to reach USD 398.62 billion by 2027. Sheet metal is among the standard building materials which are used in the construction sector for a variety of applications. Consistent expansion of the building & construction industry is one of the critical drivers for the sheet metal market.
Building & Construction industry includes roofing, walling, and cladding are critical applications for this sector. Rising use of the stainless-steel sheets in roofing and curtain wall has influenced the market for sheet metals, which can be majorly attributed to functional properties and aesthetic appeal offered by stainless steel. Aluminum metal sheets provide many advantages including resistance to rust, high insulation, durability, good resale value, longer lifespan, and lightweight making it flexible for the adoption in various sectors including cladding, roofing for houses & residential buildings, parking bays, airports, industrial warehouses, sheds & halls, and stadiums. Surface-treated steel sheets, which include electro-galvanized and hot-dipped galvanized sheets, are the essential products that are used in the automobile industry.
