  • Measured optimism in large-diameter linepipe market: MBR’s outlook Recorded: May 2 2013 30 mins
    Producers of large OD linepipe are optimistic over the outlook for linepipe demand over the coming five year period, following lackluster growth in the previous two years. Since the start of the global recession, linepipe supply has exceeded demand causing prices to slip and producers to cut output rates or shift production to non-energy tubing. Demand is now in recovery but in the meantime, there have been some structural changes in the markets that affect the prevailing sentiment as well as our outlook for the industry. The slower-than-expected economic recovery, development of shale gas and oil reserves, demand for infrastructure investment and environmental concerns have all shaped the landscape of the market.

  • Strategic Alliances in the global Steel Industry. Recorded: Apr 10 2013 17 mins
    The increasing adoption of strategic alliances in the steel industry is a relevant trend, with considerable impacts for company’s current and prospective performance. The steel giants rarely survive without partnerships. Consequently, steel enterprises (and its customers and suppliers) must understand how to play the strategic alliance game. Although steel companies have been adopting more and more partnerships, they have many differences regarding: a) motivations; b) preferential stages of production; c) average duration of strategic alliances; d) divorce ratio. This presentation will be cover some of the 24 selected steel companies, showing their similarities and differences among them and, as a consequence, the major issues related to it.
  • Managing the Political and Social Risks of Mining Operations in Africa Recorded: Mar 27 2013 32 mins
    Coinciding with its emergence as a major frontier for mining exploration, Africa has entered a period of political transition that carries profound implications for natural resources investors. While the colonial legacies of corruption, weak states, and irregular transfers of power persist, a new generation of political leaders more responsive to domestic constituencies and more assertive in relation to external investors is also making its mark. This generational shift on the African continent dovetails with broader geopolitical and normative changes that demand the adoption of mutually beneficial approaches to investment and business engagement. This presentation will offer insights on a range of non-technical challenges confronting investors on the continent and will introduce principles to employ in assessing and mitigating these risks.
  • Transport constraints are crucial to the future coking coal market and prices Recorded: Oct 25 2012 45 mins
    Coking coal prices were at an all time high in April 2011 partly because of logistics bottlenecks. Since then prices for prime coking coal have fallen by around 50%. Chinese demand is faltering and some suppliers are cutting production, but Peabody and Teck are continuing to expand, anticipating renewed market tightness. Some transport constraints will then again become crucial to how the market and prices develop. This webcast will cover in detail on all of the foregoing, especially the logistics bottlenecks.
  • Forecasting steel metallic prices out to 2020 Recorded: Jul 12 2012 37 mins

  • North American Steel Flat Product Market Trends Recorded: Mar 20 2012 15 mins
    The North American steel market in 2012 is expected to mirror 2011 in many ways. Demand growth is forecast to be steady, but will remain vulnerable to economic shocks, similar to that experienced last year. Economic reports are pointing to declining unemployment and stronger manufacturing activity, both key to sustainable recovery in steel consumption. Steel mills are reporting stronger demand in the first quarter from most of their key end-use industries in a positive sign for steel markets this year. Although steel demand has increased in early 2012, both through inventory rebuilding and improvement in underlying demand from a number of key consuming industries, underlying cost pressures are a key factor in the upturn in steel prices thus far this year. Meanwhile, domestic steel mills are increasing production in response to higher prices, but if output rises in excess of demand, prices could reverse. We will assess these market factors and present our 2012 forecasts for North American steel flat product prices.

  • Aluminium’s Future Under A New Power Market Paradigm: Costs, Location & Prices Recorded: Jan 17 2012 32 mins
    At a time of weak aluminium prices, variables in power input costs are playing a keyrole in determining which smelters are most at risk of closure.

    Could the current downturn result in the permanent closure of some smelting capacity located in regions where competitive power contracts are a thing of the distant past?

    The webcast will provide an overview of our recently released Aluminium Under a New Power Paradigm report. We will address just how exposed the world's aluminium producers are at current metal and power prices. We also take a look into the future, and discuss how power price trends will determine where future smelting capacity will be located and the implications that this will have on aluminium production costs and long run metal prices.
  • Eastern European steel: well positioned to export west? Recorded: Nov 24 2011 22 mins
    With rising input costs, environmental regulations and a fluid market, the production of Western European steel is looking less economical. Blast furnaces have already been mothballed, and the fear remains that these could be permanently shut.

    As with other manufacturing, could outsourcing the production of steel-semis make sense? With its steel overcapacity, China could provide an answer, but China has built its economy on exporting - exporting finished products, rather than semi-finished steel.

    So could the close proximity of Eastern Europe steel mills make them a supplier of semi-finished steel into Western Europe?
