Galvanizing Industries in India - Present Scenario

Subramanian, V R (1997) Galvanizing Industries in India - Present Scenario. In: Workshop on Hot Dip Galvanizing - HODGA -97, 6-7, January 1997, National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur.



India ranks 9th in the production of zinc. With commiss- ioning of the Rampura-Agucha-Chanderiya integrated project of HZL in 1991-92, the country has achieved near self-sufficiency in zinc. The zinc consuming industries in India have come of age in the matter of selection and use of different grades of zinc. All the commercial grades of zinc i.e. special high grade, high grade and P/W /GOB grade are available in the country. They are used by the galvanizers as per their bath composition requirements. Zinc consumption in India has grown from 60,000 tonnes in 60-61 to 230,000 tonnes in 95-96. The present zinc consumption trend shows that galvanizing sector accounts for more than 70% of the total zinc con-sumed. Of this amount, approximately 20% is in sheet/ strip, 60% in tube, 15% in structurals and general, and 5% in wire galvanizing units.
