In 2022, bulk steel alloy markets were characterised by diverging trends in China and the west. While western markets were most prominently shaped by the blowback from the war in Ukraine, this had much less of a direct impact in China as the country’s “zero-covid” policy proved to be a much more decisive driver. We expect these themes to remain relevant in 2023. However, alongside this, bulk alloy markets will face a new set of opportunities, challenges and risks. Among the factors shaping these themes will be the energy transition, government policy shifts, geopolitics, and the development of energy markets.
