Driven by innovation, the stainless steel industry in southeast China’s Fujian Province, has grown significantly in recent years. Local industry leaders have contributed to the formation of a stainless steel business cluster. According to statistics, the stainless steel industry was worth 23.6 billion U.S. dollars by the end of 2021, supporting about 25,000 jobs.

For many years, China has been the world’s leading producer and consumer of stainless steel. The country produced approximately 30.63 million tonnes of the world’s 55 million tonnes of stainless steel in 2021.

Aluminum is one of ten priority industries identified by the state government that will underpin SCORE’s growth.

Reliable, affordable electricity is a vital factor in the efficient and effective processing of ore – as energy accounts for 20-40% of the total cost of producing aluminum. Sarawak’s – One of the two states of Malaysia located on the island of Borneo, the largest Malaysian state – vast hydro-power resources, strategically located deep-sea ports, and generous tax incentives and financial incentives make it an ideal location for large-scale investment projects.

The key segments of the aluminum industry are smelting, casting, foundries and extrusion. The majority of aluminum products currently manufactured in Malaysia are extruded components used in the construction industry.

The Chinese market for stainless steel shows resilience and is brimming with opportunities, despite the disruption that COVID-19 has brought to the global stainless steel industry, according to industry insiders.

As the world’s largest stainless steel producer and consumer, China saw its output rise 1.64 percent year-on-year to over 30.6 million tons in 2021, and the apparent consumption ticked up 1.92 percent year-on-year to about 26.1 million tons, according to participants at the first International Conference on Innovation and Development of Stainless-steel Industry.

In recent years, China’s self-developed stainless steel products have been widely used in many fields, especially the chemical, auto, aerospace and medical industries, playing a crucial role in stabilizing the industrial and supply chains of China’s steel industry.

There is considerable space for upgrading China’s stainless steel industry, as the world enhances environmental protection and downstream market standards continue to improve, China’s stainless steel industry needs to increase investment in innovation in terms of production technology and application, speed up green transformation, and continue to expand its global market share.
