A brief overview of developments in steel making and processing has been done with particular emphasis on developments of various grades of steels for automobile sector. Time and again the challenges posed by alternat- ive materials like plastics, ceramics, aluminium, magn-esium etc to steel have been met and appropriate grades of steels have been produced with improved strength, toughness and corrosion resistance along with matching fabrication technologies. It has been shown that the steel industry is no more a sunset industry, it has to see many dawns.
