Solid structure: Demand from nonresidential construction markets will bolster industry expansion

The Structural Metal Product Manufacturing industry in Ontario is projected to expand despite volatile steel and aluminum prices during the current period. Industry operators fabricate structural metal components, completed structures, metal base plates, concrete reinforcing bars and other metal products for infrastructure development. Accordingly, demand tends to trend in line with construction activity, infrastructure investments and the price of input metals such as steel and aluminum. Over the five years to 2023, a broader macroeconomic slowdown is expected to facilitate a contraction in industry revenue. Despite a forecast rise in steel and aluminum prices, the appreciation of the Canadian dollar is expected to boost import more.
