Egypt stands tall as Africa's leading steel producer and holds the second position in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Contributing to a significant 19.2% of the industrial GDP in 2002, the steel sector underscores its importance in the Egyptian economic landscape.

However, this dominance hasn't come without its share of tribulations. Global reductions in raw material prices - including that of pallet, iron ore, and scrap - combined with a depreciating dollar against the pound, have driven steel prices downward. The market is also grappling with an oversupply of steel, making it unattractive for newcomers. Moreover, the inherently capital-intensive nature of the steel industry naturally restricts easy market entry in Egypt.

Yet, the future seems promising. Following the inauguration of a new factory, projections for 2020 showed an upward curve in Egypt's iron production. Indeed, in the same year, Egypt proudly secured its spot as the world's 20th largest steel producer, boasting an impressive 8.2 million tons of steel.
