The Indian Stainless Steel Development Association Gurgaon (India)

Business overview

The Indian Stainless Steel Development Association (ISSDA) is the unifying point for the growth and development of stainless steel usage in India. Founded in 1989 by leading stainless steel producers, it was formed with the explicit objective of diversifying the applications of stainless steel in India and increasing usage volumes in the country. At the point of formation of ISSDA, the main visible application in daily life was essentially household kitchenware. It currently has a membership of over 145 companies engaged in the stainless steel business. Through the focused efforts of ISSDA and its member companies, the widespread and visible use of stainless steel in different walks of life is all too evident, especially in the Architecture, Building & Construction (ABC) and the Automotive, Railway and Transportation (ART) sectors. All-stainless steel railway coaches, Delhi Metro coaches, wagons for carrying coal & minerals, airports, corporate buildings, retail shops & shopping malls, the ever-wider use by the hospitality industry, even bus stands, railway platform roofs, building hardware - you name it and stainless steel is making its presence felt there. It has become the most aspired material of construction for thousands of small and big things, apart from the chemical and food process industry where the use of stainless steel is mandatory. With the economy booming, there is increasing demand for a wider range of products and services in stainless steel. Such a change of fortunes for this material has made been possible through unremitting creation of awareness about the benefits of stainless steel amongst engineers, architects, designers, railway men and a host of professionals responsible for specification of materials of construction and at the same time providing help to fabricators to fabricate and finish stainless steels in technically correct manner. Stainless steel production in India has increased from 0.5 million tonnes in 1994-95 to nearby 3 million tonnes in 2013-14. We firmly believe that in the ABC and ART sectors, we have only initiated the curiosity for stainless steel. Much bigger volumes are on their way and we as an industry, must prepare for this. Newer sectors like household plumbing in thin-walled stainless steel and the water industry as a whole (potable water treatment, waste water treatment plants, large-dia pipes for carrying water), reinforcement bar for concrete, domestic and auto-LPG cylinders, automobile exhausts for two and four wheelers, bus bodies etc, wait to be explored and exploited seriously. After about 25 years of persistent efforts, the influence of ISSDA is growing both in the private sector and the public sector (CPWD, Railways, Airports Authority etc.). Through this membership drive, we would like to expand the scope for stainless steel usage further by welcoming new members providing ever-greater variety of products and services. The growth of ISSDA's membership will enable the Association to provide total solution to engineers, architects, railway men, interior designers and others in a comprehensive and user-friendly manner, in many different sectors, in many parts of India. Our website is an important tool for easy availability of information on stainless steel to the users. With your help and association with us, ISSDA would like to become a comprehensive platform for providing solutions in stainless steel. The technical strength of ISSDA is derived from its close association with the NICKEL INSTITUTE, the International Stainless Steel Forum and close collaboration with more than 20 national stainless steel development associations (SSDAs) around the world.
