The steel user industry has been lately grappling with multiple challenges namely stagnant demand, fund crisis, policy bottlenecks, debtor's defaults, sudden and multiple impositions of tariff and non-tariff barriers on imports, currency fluctuation and so on.
Steel makers, steel users and steel traders form the basic structure of steel market and can easily co-exist in harmony. However, the policy announcements or amendments to the existing policy framework should have been well deliberated, considered and agreed upon by these three pillars so as to strengthen the industry as a whole and march together to achieve the target of 300 millions tons steel production by the year 2030 as envisioned in the steel policy and also to make a forceful impact on 'MAKE IN INDIA' programme announced by the Hon'ble Prime Minister of India.
In order to address this situation and to bring steel user industry, trade segment, stockists, service centres and the steel makers together, a new platform has been evolved and registered under the name and style.
SUFI– Steel Users Federation of India….. a United Platform
