According to a leading financial daily, Tata Steel has entered into a collaboration with a leading UAE based petrochemical company to broaden its market base for energy sector products in the Middle-East. Tata Steel has joined hands with International Development Company (IDC) in acquiring national oil company approvals after recognizing the need to have local representation in Abu Dhabi.

The deal has come following increased focus by Tata Steel on productivity in a bid to reduce the total cost of ownership for its customers' projects. Tata Steel, along with IDC, will introduce its supply capabilities to oil and gas companies in the region, providing them with an opportunity to work with a supplier who has an excellent track record of providing for offshore and onshore line pipe projects worldwide.

In June 2015, the government imposed an anti-dumping duty of up to US$ 316 per tonne on a type of stainless steel imported from China, South Korea and Malaysia. The World Steel Association puts out the data for country wise production of steel every month. The latest data released on August 20, 2015, points out that between January and July 2015, Indian companies manufactured 52,889 thousand tonnes of steel. This is 9.2% more than what was manufactured during the same period last year. Vivek Kaul, the India Editor of 'The Daily Reckoning' highlights the implications faced by the steel companies.
