Industrial & Structural Tube & Pipe Market Outlook

Presented by

James Ley, Kim Leppold, Roman Filimonov (Metal Bulletin Research)

About this talk

In this brand new webinar, Metal Bulletin Research will be examining the current conditions in the global industrial and structural tube and pipe markets, paying particular attention to the cost drivers for seamless vs. welded tube and pipe. There has been a notable de-coupling of the welded and seamless markets in terms of price movements. Through our analysis, we will give our forecast of price movements through the fourth quarter of 2016 and whether this separation of welded and seamless fortunes will continue. As the only independent information provider following many of these niche markets, the Metal Bulletin Research team have unique insight in this sector. Join them as they analyze: • The difference in the ability of welded producers to raise prices in response to rising costs more than seamless producers • The effect of Chinese HRC price increases on the welded tube producers who buy it • How tube export prices are now supporting prices in the domestic markets • How long will the price run-up last? • When will seamless mills catch up to rising scrap costs? There will be time for Q&A - you may submit questions to our experts during the webinar or before by emailing We look forward to sharing this market insight with you!
