The Indian Steel Association forecasts India's steel consumption to hit 86 million mt in the current fiscal year, 5.3% higher than its demand last year. Analysts, meanwhile, have revised production estimates in India from an initial forecast of 5%-6% to 6%-7% for the financial year ending March 2017.
