Rising demand to push steel production in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Gazette reported that Saudi Arabia's domestic steel production will grow at a CAGR of around 14% to 2013 on the back of rising steel demand. The report provides a detailed study of the steel industry outlook in Saudi Arabia till 2015. The report noted that the consumption of steel is anticipated to gain an uninterrupted momentum from the government backed massive infrastructure projects.

Government sources said that an estimated USD 400 billion investment will be spent on large infrastructure projects during the next 5 years. This will further boost the steel demand in the country and take iron and steel consumption to over 26 million tonnes by 2015. The Kingdom has shown strong resilience against the economic slowdown, the report said. As a result, Saudi Arabia's steel industry is once again striving hard to achieve exponential growth trajectory and many steel manufacturers have started formulating capacity expansion strategies in response to the fast growing domestic demand.

Saudi Arabia is one of the most attractive destinations for the global crude steel producers. There are several reasons that prompt investors to capture the market, such as its geographical location equidistant from Africa, Europe and Asian countries, cheaper availability of labor compared to Europe and America and cheap & reliable energy & gas resources. Furthermore, steel consumption in the Kingdom has been continuously soaring on the back of fast growing real estate and construction industry. Several infrastructure projects initiated during the past decade have boosted the steel demand in the country. Moreover, consumption of steel is anticipated to gain an uninterrupted momentum from the government backed massive infrastructure projects.

Saudi Arabia has led to the transformation in the GCC infrastructure scenario in recent years with plans to develop six economic cities and other major development schemes. Besides, the Kingdom has initiated massive large scale developments in its infrastructure, economical, industrial and educational projects to revamp the facilities and services provided in the country to enhance business opportunities.

Comments about training and experience with 'Trinity Institute of NDT Technology'

It gives me immense pleasure to share the experience of the participants those attended the training with our training institute through this blog. I would like to thank every participant, trainers, staff and alumni for building the institute to such greater heights.

The feed back on all the programs from the participation of Indian and foreign delegates gives me inspiration to add more world class programs in near future. In this regard I would like to share a participant's experience with the readers.

"Simple concepts in physics were explained with excellent clarity. Very methodical and systematic approach aided in good comprehension of subject to students. Inspite of the vast subject(s), matter in going from one NDT technique to another, the lectures were well placed and enabled a good understanding of subject without any confusion. Entire program is kept to time, well paced, recapped at strict intervals. Instructors subject knowledge came through very well. The labs were maintained very methodically. The staff were courteous and good lunch was organized. 

Overall an outstanding and impressive effort.
