Report summary

Cheap steel imports from China and other low-cost countries have been causing some worldwide issues in the steel industry including low capacity utilisation, low margins and even closures. China, as the top exporter has been the"go-to" country to blame.An increasing number of trade cases have therefore been raised against imports as local producers' last resort. In this insight, we analyse all the trade cases in 2015 around the world that were initiated against Chinese steel products and its impact on China's steel exports and global steel industry.
