Essar Hypermart is a steel retail chain headquartered at Mumbai, India. It has a steel retailing network of 520 outlets.[3][4] Essar Hypermart is a part of the multinational conglomerate, the Essar Group.


The company was an initiative of Essar Steel, a 14 MTPA steel producer and one of India's largest; to bring steel directly to SMEs and end-users. With its origins in India, Essar Steel sought to eliminate the role of intermediaries in the steel-buying process. The first Essar Hypermart opened in Gandhidham, Gujarat in 2006. Since then, its network has grown to include smaller franchisees and the 100th Essar Hypermart opened in Ranchi in 2010.[5]

For the financial year 2009/2010 the company reported revenue of 3,600 crore (US$560 million).[2]
