Steel is the most commonly used material for construction purposes. There are thousands of grades of steel, and there is various technology for the manufacturing of steel. One of the essential types of steel which are commonly used for construction purposes is called cold-framed steel. Cold-framed steel is also called light gauge steel that is mostly made from steel plates, sheets, and strips materials. It has various advantages such as cold-framed steel is easy to fabricate, transport, and install.

Also, it provides moisture, fire, wear and corrosion resistance, and energy-efficient. In US cold-framed steel is called advantageous building material owing to light in weight and able to bear high magnitude of earthquake it appears to be earthquake-proof. These findings expected to increase in demand for cold-framed steel. Cold-framed steel is mostly utilized for assembling purposes in the construction. Also, it has wide applications in the automotive and industrial sectors.

On the basis of type, the global cold-formed steel market can be segmented into individual structural shapes and panel & decks. Different structural shapes are widely used for building & construction activities like bridges, malls, etc. This segment consists of various shapes like C-section, Z-section, and T-section, etc. which are the base of big construction. Panel & decks are used to provide structural length, roofing, flooring, etc. Based on technology, the market is segmented as roll forming, folding, and press braking.

On the basis of application, the global cold-formed steel market is segmented into building & construction, automotive, industrial equipment, and others. Building & construction is expected to dominating the market in the above segmentation. In construction, cold-formed steel has wide application in the residential steel framing system. In construction, steel has used the alternative of lumber of joints, studs and other structural components of residential construction.
