2018 Steel Price Forecast

As the world’s leader in steel production, China has a strong influence on the steel industry as a whole. Two years ago, China’s massive steel output tanked steel prices as supply greatly outweighed demand.

Chinese production is declining as the Chinese economy shifts away from manufacturing and infrastructure and toward services. Chinese officials announced last year that the country will decrease steel production by more than 165 million tons by 2020.

“As China’s steel exports decline, we can expect robust western steel prices.”
Seth Rosenfeld, Jefferies Global Investment Firm

Why does this matter? As the world’s leading steel supplier decreases production, demand in the United States continues to rise. As T.V. Narendan, Chairman of the Economics Committee at the World Steel Association, echos: “We expect global growth to moderate in 2018, mainly due to slower growth in China, while in the rest of the world, steel demand will continue to maintain its current momentum.”

Will Steel Prices Increase?
The current momentum in steel demand is great for steel manufacturers, but if steel production decelerates in 2018, the consumer is likely to pay more as steel prices in the United States continue to rise.
