[VI] STEEL INDUSTRY REPORT - APRIL 2023

SUMMARY

 

This is one of the few sectors with more positive changes in Q1 (in terms of the selling price, production, and export). However, domestic consumption has not improved much. Specifically, Q1 production is almost the same as in the same period last year and is increasing month by month. Export volume rebounded after two dismal quarters, up 18.9% compared to the previous quarter. Domestic consumption in the quarter remained low. The volume of finished steel sold was lower than in the previous quarter and decreased by 25.4% over the same period, and decreased in most product groups.

 

Steel prices are expected to move sideways in Q2 in the context of the prospect of steel consumption in China showing no clear signs of recovery. Q2 exports may increase, but not much. And domestic demand is forecasted to remain low, before gradually recovering from Q3/2023 thanks to public investment and a number of real estate projects that can be restarted.
