Steel structure buildings are in high demand in Bangladesh's construction sector as they need little investment and time yet provide great safety.
The high resale value of steel structures also drives their popularity.
Local steel building makers are expecting a bright future for steel structure buildings as an increasing number of conglomerates, including foreign companies, are setting up such structures for industrial use.
