Today, steel is one of the most common materials in the world. We rely on it for our housing, transport, food and water supply,
energy production, tools and healthcare. Nearly everything around us is either made of steel or manufactured by equipment made of steel.
Steel has enabled our modern way of life. It has helped lift societies out of poverty, spurring economic growth,
and continues to do so around the world today Developing societies require steel to build new roads, railway lines,
buildings and bridges. They also need it to lay new pipelines for gas, water and sanitation and to build factories and machinery.
