All these factors will drive steel demand during the forecast period. Steel demand will also be driven by strong construction and infrastructure investments in Indonesia and the Philippines during the remaining years of the forecast period,” says Chandrakumar Badala Jaganathan, lead research analyst at Technavio for metals and minerals.

ASEAN steel market by mechanical machinery

The mechanical machinery market is likely to exceed 12 million tons by 2019, growing at a CAGR of over 5%.The mechanical machinery industry is currently witnessing growth, and this trend is expected to continue during the remaining years of the forecast period.

This market accounted for around 14 % of the steel consumption in the ASEAN steel market in 2014.
