SMU Newsletter Covers Flat Rolled Steel Prices, Mills, & Market News
In our last Steel Market Update newsletter published Tuesday, we covered the latest flat rolled steel prices and indexes for our free trial and annual members. USS-Posco raised prices on their products, which is covered in one of our articles.
US Steel has made a deal with Canada’s government regarding their Hamilton and Lake Erie mills, which has raised concerns with the Local 1005 USW members who have just returned to work at the Hamilton mill after almost a year-long lockout. SMU has covered the actions of both the union and US Steel for the past year regarding the legalities involved with the former Stelco mills and promises made by USS to Canada.
Steel Market Update announced the price ranges and indexes for flat rolled steel, broken down by hot rolled, cold rolled, galvanized and Galvalume, and included an analysis of market conditions. We feel it’s important for those involved in the steel industry to be updated regularly on current prices to adjust their budgets and buy/sell accordingly. U.S. flat rolled exports declined for the month of October, which we compared to previous months and then broke down by countries receiving US exports. We write about exports to show the growth or lack thereof for the domestic mills producing the steel as well as which products are experiencing sluggish/strong demand from international customers.
SMU covered prepainted steel imports for October, with charts and graphs to show the past trends of this market. We try to offer a variety of articles, covering different topics of importance to those in the steel industry. If you are reading Steel Market Update and would like to see more of a specific product, please let us know.
Our latest newsletter covered weekly raw steel production and apparent steel supply for the year. The estimated raw steel production is further broken down into regions across the country with production levels for the week. This helps show the current steel market and seasonal demand.
