This includes all road, highway and bridge construction, sewage system, airport, and stadium projects.

Looking at it from a global perspective, Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share of the steel rebar market in 2016, followed by Europe and Middle East & Africa. The rapidly growing construction industry in countries such as China and India has fueled the growth of the market in the region.

This construction material will continue its dominance in the market and be a staple on jobsites for a multitude of projects.
