Electrical Steel Market Report Key Highlights
Electrical steel is a specialty steel that is produced by customizing the magnetic properties of usual steel in order to offer high permeability for ensuring low core loss in electrical components. It is used in the production of various devices such as the core of generators, power transformers, and inductors, among others. As silicon is added to electrical steel, it is also called laminate steel. It is mostly used for lamination methods in the cores of electrical components. Electrical steel is generally produced in cold rolled strips.
