  • Southeast Asia Steel: Key trends and prospects amid the dominance of China Recorded: Jul 10 2014 50 mins
    Concerns about relentless steel product flows from China out (what we term as the “Boron Steel Phenomena”) into the wider southeast Asian region in the form of competitively priced exports must be the focal point of any steel executive operating in the Southeast Asia region. This is especially so given that so many in the region are also looking to ramp up on new steel capacity in their drive to improve self-sufficiency. This will have a direct impact on the future evolution of regional supply and pricing pattern within the region over the forecast period, according to MBR’s brand new market report, A Strategic Five Year Market Outlook for the Southeast Asian Steel and Raw Materials Industry.

    Join Roman Kucinskij, Consultant at Metal Bulletin Research, who will be presenting some of the report’s main findings and insights, as well as discuss these core themes in more detail.

  • Aluminium to drive steel out of car industry Recorded: May 20 2014 52 mins
    Steelmakers need to accelerate production, marketing and R&D expenditure with regards to the latest types of steel to protect their position in the automotive industry. Ford’s sudden and unexpected adoption of aluminium for its best-selling vehicle is nothing less than a “major wake-up call” to steel mill executives.

    The issue is so stark that some are asking how much do steel executives in some of the world’s largest steel producing companies have themselves to blame for not seeing the serious threat aluminium now poses to steel in the car manufacturing market?

    What led to them falling asleep at the wheel? Is it a lack of R&D investment, too much onus on budget cutting and not enough in strategic vision and implementation?
    Is this fair criticism even?

    What should steel mills do now to improve their strategic positioning against aluminium and other materials under construction and coming to the market to compete? Can steelmakers produce advanced steel fast enough to stop more carmakers switching to aluminium?

    Utilising interviews with confidential sources, Metal Bulletin Research has recently produced a new report called, Strategic Prospects for Steel and Aluminium in the Global Automotive Sector

    To introduce the report, MBR has organised this webinar which will cover the background and context to the report. It will explain the combined effects on the sector from lightweighting, safety and carbon dioxide emissions. It will highlight the challenges and opportunities faced by the sector as it struggles to manage the often competing requirements from consumers, materials suppliers, the automotive sector, governments and other stakeholders.

  • Europe's galvanized steel industry: finally turning a corner? Recorded: Mar 13 2014 22 mins
    This webcast looks at how Europe's galvanized steel industry has developed over the past decade, in particular since the global financial crisis. While the industry has suffered heavily from large contractions in Europe's automotive and construction industries in recent years, there are indications that demand growth may be returning at last. Combined with capacity cutbacks on behalf of some of Europe's largest galvanized steel producers, the industry looks set to improve during 2014 and the coming years.

  • Opportunities and Challenges facing the Middle East Steel Industry Recorded: Feb 10 2014 27 mins
    Strong governmental expenditures, buoyed by high energy prices, will continue to spur construction-led steel demand for the region, but challenges and pressures are expected to persist, and in some cases deepen. This will act to dampen producer margin and price improvements over the forecast period, according to MBR’s brand new market report, A Strategic Outlook for the Middle East Steel Industry out to 2019.

    Join Brian Levich, Consultancy & Special Projects Director at Metal Bulletin Research, who will be presenting some of the report’s main findings and insights, as well as discuss these themes in more detail.

  • 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.
  • Key strategic issues for the global OCTG market Recorded: Apr 24 2013 40 mins
    Metal Bulletin Research will release its 4th 5-Year Strategic Outlook for the Global OCTG Industry in April 2013.

    The global OCTG industry continues to grow and remains one of the brightest niches within the global steel industry. This webcast will provide insight into the global market size, the split between welded and seamless supply, regional differences, trade flows and historic demand and supply. Crucially, the webcast and the report will address some of the key issues regarding the industry over the medium term. These will include:
    - Existing players and new market entrants are building capacity – will the market be able to absorb this?
    - What impact does shale gas, oil and NGLs have on OCTG demand in terms of grades, connections and volumes?
    - What does the industry cost structure look like and will this change?
