Barbed wire is a type of fencing material that consists of a length of mild steel wire twisted together to form a cable. The cable is then fitted with sharp barbs, typically spaced at regular intervals along its length, to deter intruders from attempting to climb over or cut through the fence.

Barbed wire made from mild steel is commonly used for agricultural and security fencing applications due to its low cost, durability, and effectiveness at deterring unwanted intrusions. It can be purchased in various gauges and lengths to suit different fencing needs.

Top manufacturers of mild steel are Tata, SAIL, JSW and JSPL.
