CRU's Steel Long Products Market Outlook, published Friday, 16th September, reports that despite recent market volatility, our longer term view has not changed substantially. CRU Senior Consultant Elizabeth Johnson writes "Recent price strength is not representative of stronger underlying market fundamentals, and we still expect demand growth to progress at a slow pace in most regions from 2017".

The Essential Resource for the Steel Long Products Market

The Steel Long Products Market Outlook utilises the expertise of CRU’s Steel team to provide an in-depth and global examination of latest developments and five-year forecasts for all steel long products markets. 

Analysis is grouped into regional chapters produced by experts in CRU’s London, Beijing and Mumbai offices.  As a result, the report now has more emphasis on key developing steel markets.  The most recent enhancement has been the addition of more granular data on the Middle East, including price forecasts. 

The Steel Long Products Market Outlook includes price forecasts for key regions, alongside our expectations for demand, supply and trade on a country-by-country basis through the 5-year forecast period for all long products markets:

  • Rebar
  • Merchant bar
  • Wire rod
  • Beams
  • Rail
  • Seamless tube and pipe

The report now also includes Special Focus sections where our regional analysts take an in-depth look at timely and topical issues affecting the long products market, such as changes in government policy and protectionist measures, a deeper look at end-use sectors and how changes in steelmaking costs will impact long products prices. 

A detailed Statistical Review, including historical and forecast data, accompanies every quarterly report (available for download).
