Iran steel market Trend in Week 35th , 2018


Billet price was downward during last week in Iran. Average price of sizes 125 & 150 mm declined from USD 842.5 /mt ex-work including 9% VAT on Saturday to USD 811 /mt on Tuesday. Market was not in a good situation as long products demand has also declined and billet suppliers prefered reducing stock level and stopped producing billet.

Market insiders had different ideas about billet price trend in coming days. One group think billet price will rise due to lower production level and the others believe billet price will continue declining as DRI price has been downward too. Generally it is unlikely that billet price in Iran drop to a level lower than USD 714 /mt ex-work including 9% VAT.
