Godawari Power and Ispat Shareholding Pattern as on 31 March 2021

What Really Triggered the Metal Stocks Rally in India

The Nifty Metal Index is up almost 100% in the last six months.

The global demand for steel has increased by 5.8% in 2021. In India, the demand increased by 19.8%.

The main reason steel has been booming is because many steel companies are witnessing big profit margins as demand is more and therefore, they can charge more.

Due to prices in global markets being much higher than the domestic markets, Indian steel producers have benefitted a lot from exporting steel abroad.

However, this is also causing decrease in supply in domestic markets.

Also, Indian companies are able to get comparatively cheaper raw materials, like coking coal, especially from Australia.

Many companies are able to make profit because they own iron ore or have access to cheap iron ores which is required for steel production.

Note that steel plants have also increased liquid oxygen to cater to the needs of the Covid-19 patients in India.

In the non-ferrous metals, copper, aluminium, and nickel are at their best prices.

Demand is increasing mainly because of the electric vehicles (EVs) and green energy projects.

The budget has also been favourable for the infrastructure sector in India, which has helped boost metal prices, especially steel.
