Global Steel Markets

The prices of coking coal, iron ore, energy and scrap have rocketed to unprecedented highs culminating in
steel prices breaking the $1,000/tonne barrier. Is the industry still poised for sustained profitability, strengthened by industrial consolidation, or is a turning point in the current super-cycle to be expected led by over-capacity and the subsequent fall in prices?

Includes 400 pages, 450 tables and charts and a 5,000 line interactive Excel consumption forecast model by product and region, access to analysts and spreadsheets.

 

Key questions answered in this report:

  • How long will the steel and raw material price boom continue for? When, if at all, can we expect a severe market down-turn?
  • Where are prices for iron ore, scrap, coking coal, coke and freight heading?
  • Is the industry poised for sustained profitability or can we expect a turning point in the current super-cycle resulting from over-capacity and leading to dramatic falls in steel prices?
  • Will there be an impending steel crisis in China's domestic market?
  • To what degree will the global credit crunch affect global steel consumption?
  • What are the trends for regional consumption by production route, consumption per capita and steel intensity forecasts for the medium term period to 2012, and a longer term outlook to 2020?
  • Which steel end-user sectors are growing and which are declining?
  • Raw materials and energy prices have followed steel prices in their upward climb. The former due to shortages in the mines and the transport chain serving them, the latter due to high oil prices and eventually to environmental penalties associated with combating climate change. Are these temporary phenomena or will they be part of the steel landscape for future years?
  • How and why will climate change and emissions policies have a fundamental impact on steel production costs, competitiveness and the location of steelmaking?
  • How are new steel technologies and management processes responding to the new economics of raw materials and climate change.
  • Where should new steel capacity be built and for which products?
  • What are the problems facing Japan, S Korea and Taiwan, and why do their steel industries face decline?
  • What strategies are the traditional industries of North America and Europe adopting to face new and emerging threats and challenges?
