Global Report: Steel Industry

Publication date: May 2016

Special Launch Offer: US$ 995 (RRP: US$ 1,495)
The global steel sector has been going through a challenging moment, with crude steel production down to 1,598 million tonnes in 2015 and estimated to drop further to 1,545 in 2016. With decreasing steel prices, production value is estimated to have collapsed from US$ 2.5 trillion in 2011 to merely US$ 1.5 trillion in 2015. The decrease in demand and production of steel in China are in large part to blame and other world markets anticipate a further 2.9% decrease for 2016. As a result, most of the top steel groups in the world have suffered losses in 2015, and numerous have decreased their steel sales steadily since 2011. On the other hand, a positive outlook for the main economic sectors supplied by the steel – construction, automotive, materials – allows experts to expect a recovery of the industry from 2017. Emerging markets will show the greatest growth over the next 10 years.
