Steel trade cases in the EU

Steel trade cases in the EU

Report summary

The provisional anti-dumping duties announced against Chinese and Russian imports of rebar and cold rolled coil into the European Union are likely to reduce import volumes from those countries. The void they leave is more likely to be filled by other non-EU suppliers rather than by an increase in EU production volumes. Exports of rebar and cold rolled coil produced within the EU and destined for non-EU markets are likely to fall. We do not expect prices to recover.
