Global stainless steel strategic planning outlook Q1 2022

Report summary

Stainless transaction prices will falter due to easing pent-up demand in Europe and potential oversupply in China. Also, falling nickel, chromium and molybdenum prices will reduce the alloy surcharge component in the coming months. Apparent consumption will increase by 4% in 2022 but IP is slowing and there are risks from inflation as well as still higher energy prices. Melt production will continue to expand in China, India and Indonesia, and Turkey may become more prominent.
