6th Edition of the DRI & Steel Conference

We are delighted to announce the upcoming 6th Edition of the DRI & Steel Conference, scheduled to take place from 22 – 23 August 2024 at The Leela Ambience in Gurugram, Haryana. This event will run concurrently with the 7th Indian Iron Ore & Pellet Summit and the 4th India Coal Outlook Conference.

India’s DRI industry is set to grow at a 6% CAGR by 2030, with annual forecasted production ranging from 65 to 70 million tonnes by FY’30. This growth is driven by the increasing demand for sponge iron as a raw material for crude steel production, particularly in electric arc furnaces.

The conference aims to bring together industry experts, stakeholders, and key players from the coal, iron ore, pellet, DRI, and steel sectors to discuss the latest market trends, challenges, and opportunities. With panel discussions, presentations, and interactive sessions, attendees will gain valuable insights into market outlook, policy updates, technological advancements, environmental sustainability, and investment prospects.
