Does Houston have a high demand for Steel?

  • May 23, 2016
    Published by Texas Metal & Iron

    Like any commodity, steel is subject to the economic realities of supply and demand. When demand for steel products is high and customers are chasing a limited supply, the prices will go up to balance the demand, eventually bringing both demand and price back down to a reasonable level. When the supply is abnormally high, and excess steel is collecting dust on retailer’s shelves, the price will drop until demand picks back up. Like any other commodity, the prices of steel can fluctuate by the month, week, day or even the hour. If you find a good price on steel while planning a project, it may be a good idea to get as much as possible at the lower price.

    Houston loves heavy metal… At least the elemental kind. Houston is one of only four regions that continued to enjoy net job growth in its manufacturing sector throughout even the recession. Today, the demand for steel is so high in the city that it’s brought exciting new growth opportunities for iron workers, with demand for skilled workers being the highest it’s been in 20 years.

    This is a metropolitan area that’s been on a steady trajectory upward with increasing demands for ready steel supplies since the second world war and the onset of its reputation as a leading industrial center. Houston owes a large part of such industrial success and massive demand for a ready steel supply to its huge port and booming energy sector.

    And it isn’t just about oil supply and petrochemicals (although both industries continue play a significant role in the city’s market). Houston has also become a leader in renewable energy initiatives and manufacturing. In fact, Houston gets half its power from renewable sources thanks to a program initiated in 2009. So while steel is used to build pipes that pump and move oil, it’s also a key component used for constructing the support needed in solar, wind, and other renewable energy products and facilities.

    When it comes to a high demand for steel, few US cities match Houston. The Bayou City is largely considered to be one of the most important industrial centers in the world. In fact, the city was recently ranked number one among all of the U.S. top manufacturing cities by Manufacturers’ News Inc. Here’s a look at just a few of the biggest Houston industries that are driving the high demand for steel supply:

    • Maritime.  

      Texas has been ranked as the top exporting state in the country for over a decade, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This is largely thanks to the Port of Houston, which links the city with 1,043 ports across 203 countries. From the ships themselves to the docks, the maritime industry has a high demand for reliable steel supply in Houston.

    • Energy.  

      Houston is also the nation’s energy headquarters and a global nexus for nearly every segment of the oil and gas industry. Steel suppliers in Houston are needed for the steel tubing that is used to drill for oil and gas, as well as all of the fittings and components utilized with it.

    • Manufacturing and technology. 

      Houston employs nearly a million skilled workers in over 6,000 manufacturing firms. Every one of these companies utilizes a wide array of steel products including steel sheets, piping, tubing, and I-beams. With such a high concentration of manufacturing and technological companies it should come as no surprise that the steel supply need in Houston is greater than that of almost any other city.
