Iran Steel Market Trend in Week 41st , 2022

Billet

Billet price was on a downward trend due to weakness of the market to USD 514/mt ex-work including VAT. While export market is very strong, and this does not increase the supply of billet in domestic market.

 

Long Products

Lack of demand made rebar price down from USD 590/mt to USD 585/mt by end of the week.

Despite Esfahan Steel co market control, I- beam average price dropped from USD 693/mt to USD 689/mt ex-work including VAT.

 

Flat Products

Mobarakeh steel co HRC 2 mm thickness was USD 788 /mt on Saturday, which reached USD 754 /mt by Wednesday. Weak demand and rumors about the cheap supply of the mill at IME market caused the price to drop.

Limited supply made Oxin co HRP improved from USD 891/mt to USD 896/mt, but its demand is very limited.

CRC market was stable during the week at USD 1066/mt but by end of the week higher supply of some sizes beside possibility of higher import supply made price down to USD 1061/mt ex-work including VAT.

Due to lower HRC price and ex-rate decrease, HDG price also had a limited decrease from USD 1014/mt to USD 994/mt by end of the week.

 

Weekly Analysis:

China market is still quiet and waiting until the National Congress of the Communist Party end. Oil price has decreased due to stagnation of global market, but market does not expect a large price decrease at the moment due to reduction of two million barrels supply of OPEC+.

 What has worried most people involved in economic issues is the economic recession ahead in global markets, and for this reason, all market participants are moving forward with caution, as a result of this, demand is downward.

 In Iran market, the outlook is not clear, DRI is in good demand, and this is driving billet price up at IME, but long products demand is very weak. In the current situation, what keeps the steel industry going is billet export, which is apparently working very strongly. In the current situation, most of the economic activists prefer to move with very slow and calculated steps, considering the international situation and Iran domestic market situation.
