The Steel Industry is currently facing a period of uncertainty. With the troubled global economy, demand for steel products has dropped, even in the world’s largest consumer, China, as it finally feels the effects of the global slowdown. In China, slowed steel consumption has led to overcapacity and slumping iron ore prices, against a backdrop of slowed demand from major consuming industries, including construction and manufacturing. In Europe, many steel producers have closed down blast furnaces to cut loses. As major steel consuming markets experience overcapacity, raw materials suppliers face bleak conditions. There’s never been a more important time to stay up-to-date with all the constant changes in this industry.
