ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel has gotten the approval to set up a INR1.02trn ($13.4bn) steel plant in India, the biggest project in the manufacturing sector to date.

The provincial Odisha government accorded approval to the plant which is proposed to have the capacity of manufacturing up to 24 million tonnes per annum (MTPA), the company said in a statement. The plant is proposed to be set up at the Mahakalpara block of Kendrapara district in the province and will be completed in seven years.

The ArcelorMittal Nippon project will generate direct employment opportunities for 16,000 people besides the indirect employment opportunities and ancillary and downstream industries and services.

The plan includes manufacturing 18.75 MPTA of cement, which will be one of the largest manufacturing plant of the commodity in the country, ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel said.

Development in the region

“The infrastructure to be developed for the Kendrapara projects facility will give a boost to the logistics and overall development of the region. This modern, green & environment friendly steel making facility will put Kendrapara and Odisha on the world steel map. A number of international equipment manufacturers will be stakeholders in this project and catalyse more employment opportunities to the state,” ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel said in their press statement.

ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel at present has crude steel capacity of 9 MTPA. It is a joint venture between Europe-based ArcelorMittal and Japan’s Nippon Steel Corporation, two of the world’s leading steel companies.

With the inauguration of the plant, ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel will compete with local giants Tata Steel and state-owned Steel Authority of India in a country which is the third-largest consumer of the product. Cumulative production capacity of Indian manufacturers put together is the second highest in the world after China, according to data provided by the World Steel Association.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
