Global steel demand growth is expected to decline in 2022 will have an effect on the cut to length and slitting line price

Global steel demand growth is expected to decline in 2022 will have an effect on the cut to length and slitting line price

The World Iron and Steel Association recently released the latest version of the short-term steel demand forecast report (2022 ~2023). According to the report, global steel demand will continue to grow by 0.4 percent to 1.8402 billion tons in 2022, after growing by 2.7 percent in 2021. In 2023, global steel demand will continue to grow by 2.2 per cent to 1.881.4 billion tonnes. The WORLD Steel Association said the current forecast was highly uncertain in the context of the Conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

Commenting on the forecast, Maximo Vedoya, Chairman of THE MARKET Research Committee at WISA, said: "Steel demand recovery is stronger than expected in 2021 in many regions of the world, despite supply chain crises and multiple rounds of COVID-19. However, global steel demand growth will slow in 2021 as China's economy decelerates. There is still a high degree of uncertainty about steel demand changes in 2022 and 2023. Wisa's expectations for a sustained and steady recovery in steel demand have been shaken by the Russia-Ukraine conflict and global inflation."

Global steel demand growth is expected to decline in 2022

The impact of the Russia-Ukraine conflict varies by region, depending on each region's direct trade and financial exposure to Russia and Ukraine. The immediate impact of the conflict on Ukraine is devastating, as is the European Union due to its high dependence on Russian energy. In addition, the impact of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine has been felt around the world due to higher energy prices (especially for raw materials used in steel production), resulting in sustained supply chain disruptions in some regions, which had plagued the global steel industry even before the outbreak of the conflict.

Steel processing industry - Current status of the cut to length and slitting line

Growth in the construction, automotive and consumer cut to length and slitting line has played a big role in providing the needed boost to the global steel processing industry. The global steel processing industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.86% between 2020 and 2026. Alloy steel is the fastest-growing segment of the global steel processing market and is suitable for all applications.

Rising oil prices drive up the cost of steel limited will also have an impact on product name prices

Oil price rise undoubtedly drives freight costs to move up. According to the general law of steel freight, according to the approved load of 35 tons of heavy truck calculation, 100 kilometres of fuel consumption of about 40 litres, a diesel price increase of 1000 yuan/ton is equivalent to the diesel price increase of 0.83 yuan/litre or so, thus calculated, since 2022 diesel price increase will increase the transportation cost of 0.664 yuan/ton/km, If the average transportation distance is 400 kilometres, the increased transportation cost of raw materials and steel is about 7.57 yuan/ton. In addition, the ore relies on long seaborne shipping routes, and rising oil prices are undoubtedly a factor in pushing up the cost of purchasing iron ore. But all of the above for the overall cost of steel moving up is still not big, and from the current weak transportation market, transportation costs transferred to the final sales of steel strength needs time to observe.

Metal and Steel Processing Industry - Future planning of the cut to length and slitting line

The steel processing market is a highly fragmented one due to the huge demand for environmentally friendly products and changing technologies. Large companies rely on regional and local distributors to increase their market share and geographic distribution. The company is pursuing inorganic growth strategies such as acquisitions to respond to the growing demand for steel processing in key emerging markets. These strategies have helped the company build a larger customer and partner base in key cut to length and slitting line markets.

The application needs of steel processing are constantly changing and manufacturers must continue to invest in RESEARCH and development and come up with innovative solutions.

Steel deep processing is the only way for the development of the cut to length and slitting line steel industry. Chinas steel production is in the stage of oversupply, structural contradictions are: advanced production capacity and backward production capacity coexist; The shortage of high-end products and the surplus of low-end products coexist; Industrial concentration is poor.

Metal and Steel Processing industry – the cut to length and slitting line market demand

Market demand for steel processing is expected to grow by us $642.43 billion by 2020, with a CAGR of 2.16% from 2015 to 2020. Growth in the global construction, consumer electronics and automotive industries has played a huge role in providing the necessary momentum for the global steel processing industry after the economic slowdown of 2007-2009. In addition, the reduction of alternatives to steel has made steel an indispensable part of customers lives. The recovery of the global cut to length and slitting line economy will also boost demand in the steel processing market.

The Asia-pacific region is expected to become the fastest-growing region in the steel processing market from 2015 to 2020. Major players in steel processing prefer agreements, contracts, joint venture and partnership strategies as well as expansion and investment to gain a larger share of the market. Leading cut to length and slitting line providers of steel processed products and services are focusing on emerging countries that are expected to show potential for industrial development in the near future.

Leading manufacturer of metallic processing machines, the cut to length and slitting line supplier

Foshan Te Xiang Machinery Co., Ltd is a China leading manufacturer of metallic processing machines, including slitting line, cut to length line, stainless steel polishing line, ERW tube mill line, roll forming machines, embossing line and etc.
