Galvanized Corrugated Sheets are manufactured using best grade steel and is widely applied in construction industry. Galvanized Corrugated Sheets have excellent corrosion resistance, these Sheets have become the most preferred material for various construction purposes, particularly roofing and walling.
The demand for corrugated iron sheet depends mainly on the performance of its end-user (i.e. the construction sector or more specifically the building construction sector). Therefore, the demand for the products under consideration is a derived demand, which depends directly on themperformance of its major end – user. The construction sector of the country has undergone tremendous changes and development in recent years. The contribution of the construction sector to the GDP during the period 2001 – 2010 have been growing at annual average growth rate of 13 percent which is above the average annual growth rate of real GDP during the period under consideration (11.4 %), indicating a rise in the share of the construction sector within the overall economy. Moreover, during the GTP period (2010 – 2015), the construction sector is expected to grow at annual average growth rate of 20%.
Uses and Applications
The corrugated galvanized iron sheets are extensively used in various fields e.g. industries sheds, dairy farm sheds, poultry farm sheds etc. for roofing purpose. In recent years, a lot of multi scale projects have taken up the Indian industry by a storm and these levels have given a larger scope for steel companies. The galvanised plain coils / sheets and corrugated sheets (GP/GC) are value - added steel products which are tough, sturdy, light weight, bright and corrosion resistant. In India these are produced in the thickness range of 0.15 mm to 2.0 mm and width range of 800 mm to 1560 mm. The function of the zinc layer is mainly three fold: To retain the steel intact with its full initial strength; to provide the surface a more pleasing appearance and to increase the life of any suitable organic finishing system applied over it.
There is always a need for galvanized sheets, rollers, and other varieties of pressed sheets that make up the steel industry. The construction process needless to say remains the same but has new implementations that are adapted from the western counterparts. Steel manufacturers are now in demand for infrastructure and automobile sectors as well, thus widening their scope of development. The recent growth of these newly developed industries has given a new lease of hope to steel developers. This sudden splurge of industrial growth has honed the success of the leading steel companies in India. Roofing industry in India is preparing for the next generation of ambitious projects. That roofing is an important component of the construction industry is evident from the fact that it accounts for over 25 per cent of the total building construction cost. There are many roofing options in the Indian roofing sector, such as asbestos cement fibre sheets, corrugated galvanised iron sheets. Growth in the infrastructure and industrial segment has been a major demand driver for roof and wall cladding industry. It has registered a double digit growth over past three years and the future of this industry is also looking bright considering the low steel penetration and high demand in construction industry. Major shift is observed from clay tiles and conventional roofing system to metal cladding solution. Customers are looking for architectural solution which provides innovative shapes such as convex, concave in addition to new attractive colors. The future of roof and wall cladding industry is bright considering the low steel penetration and high demand in construction industry.
