Use of steel indicates how much economical development a country does. In the developed countries like USA, Canada, Japan, Germany, Korea usually steel consumption per capita per annum about 500 Kg. China 460, Brazil 123, India 59 and Bangladesh use only 40 Kg. In our country the ratio of using steel is increasing specially in fabricated steel building industry and ship building said Engr. Md. Akkas Ali, the Founder President of Steel Building Manufacture Association of Bangladesh (SBMA) and Managing Director of Multi-Concept Steel Building Products Ltd.
He also said Pre-fab steel is being using in ware house, factory building, bridge, culverts, stadium, railway and many places. Many building with pre-fab steel structures have been built in Banani and Gulshan area like Hotel Sarina. We also made many buildings all over the country among them 04-Storied Sweater Factory of Hannan Group at Gazipur, Factory Building of Nice Cotton Ltd. at DakkhinPanishail, Gazipur with 10 Ton Capacity Overhead Crane, 1,56,000 Square Feet Area Spinning Mill of NASSA Taipei Spinners Ltd. at Rupgonj, Narayangonj, Spinning Mill of Otto Spinning Mills Ltd. at Sreepur, Gazipur. Spinning Mill of Patriot Spinning Mills Ltd. at Vhoradoba, Valuka, Mymensingh, Construction of UN Transit Complex 4 Storied at Dhaka Cantonment, Construction of APC Hanger at PGR Army, Dhaka Cantonment, 04-Storied Factory Building of Danish Foods Ltd. of Partex Star Group at Narayangonj, 1,60,000 sft.

Jessore, 25MW Power Plant for Shajahanullah Power Generation Company Ltd. at Kumargaon, Jalalabad, Sylhet are well known.
Beside these all power plants and max. of EPZ structures are made by pre-fabricated steel structures. So steel building is very important to develop a country. Though it’s a little bit costly for residential buildings but quick construction, resale value is high, long span and earth quake tolerated. At present we, all the association members have the capacity to meet local demand in Bangladesh & we are ready to export pre-fab building in overseas market.
However we have 22 members at SBMA association and 40 more steel building companies are in market. We hope Bangladesh government would give more importance in this industry. Vat and Tax should be imposed in finish product on some conditions. We want also benefits of bonded ware house facilities in steel sector. Government should establish a checking/vetting authority for drawing design of pre-fab steel building like RAJUK. If the government promotes steel building for their own projects then this industry will be developed more.
