Steel–The Wonder Material

Not many people discuss about steel today. That’s something we take for granted. But just imagine what we would have done without something that touches our lives in so many ways. Right from the safety-pins that we use in our daily life to the engineering level steel used in the manufacture of airplanes, steel is a substance that we just cannot ignore.

Probably the biggest advantage of steel is that it offers higher levels of strength and power as compared to naturally occurring iron. No wonder that steel forms an essential element in huge civil engineering projects such as bridges and flyovers.

Unlike iron, steel does not rust. Therefore it can safely be used for crucial industry applications without the fear that it might corrode leading to loss of strength. Steel has a high level of resilience to water and can safely remain in its contact for long periods of time.

Depending upon the production process and the elements added, steel can be manufactured in different variants as per the desired application. For instance the household stainless steel that is used for utensils is primarily composed of iron, nickel and chromium.

Steel has the advantage that it does not loose its physical properties on recycling. Steel manufacturers lay a great emphasis on recycling as it is not only economically advantageous, but also helps protect the environment. Studies indicate that the energy saved by recycling reduces the annual energy consumption of the industry by about 75%, which is enough to power eighteen million homes for one year.

With applications ranging from roads, railways and buildings to stadiums and skyscrapers, steel has a significant effect on the economy the world over. This is the reason that when countries face abnormally high levels of inflation, steel manufacturers are often under pressure to reduce steel prices.

The New Trend in Tableware

It’s interesting to note how trends come and go around in circles. There was a time when people got so tired of steel tableware that they changed into glass, crystal and melamine. For many years steel tableware came to be associated with third world countries alone. In fact, people in urban areas even in Asia and Africa rapidly shifted from steel.

However now again the trends have reversed. Steel is back in vogue again. Thanks to the marketing efforts of some major steel corporations to increase household demand, a metal that had almost totally lost its sheen in tableware is now sought-after again. But there has indeed been a difference in the finishing. The steel tableware creating waves today is manufactured using state-of-the-art manufacturing and the look is very classy.

Besides the manufacturing, there is a lot happening on the design front as well. Steel tableware manufacturers have in-house designers that have brought cutting-edge design concepts and technologies on the table. As a result, the new range of steel tableware is a highly modernistic, stylish and convenient.

Speaking about design, one cannot avoid talking about the range in steel & glass. The trend that is seen especially in coffee-mugs includes glass mugs placed into specially designed steel brackets. This range of coffee mugs is especially popular in offices due to its executive and formal look. Besides the steel handles make it highly convenient to use.

From the market, it appears that steel tableware is here to stay. Going forward, one can expect even more stylish designs to appear in tableware creating a superior dining experience with steel industry.

The Best Industries to Invest In

If you are a regular investor, you would have faced this question a number of times. Despite the ever increasing tools for investment, it is often a challenge to identify the right channel.

In fact when the level of investment is high, you would be more interested in industry portfolios rather than individual companies. The reason why this approach makes sense is because with the other factors remaining constant, companies grow in accordance with the average growth of the industry they belong to. Let’s briefly analyze some popular industry domains that make for high-return investment opportunities:

Information Technology: Despite the highs and lows, IT remains one of the most promising industries to invest in. With the ever increasing number of computer users and their requirement for software and hardware, this is one industry that would always remain in the top few.

Metals: No matter how high-tech the world gets, the demand for conventional inputs can never go down. Especially with the massive urbanization patterns the world over, global requirement levels for metals continue to increase.

Travel: With rising income levels and high propensity to consume, people are traveling much more frequently than before. As a result, travel companies and airlines are making loads of money.

Retail: Retail stores are getting bigger and mightier each passing day. The present-day generation is high on retail therapy and the fad of shopping is becoming more widespread than ever.

Investing in high-growth industries not only gets you high returns but also secures your money in the long run. IT, travel and steel industry are examples of evergreen investment opportunities that would never let you down.
