- How does MBR expect prices of these tubular products to develop in the next half year?
A review of aluminium premium development since 2012 – why
there has been such a significant increase in the premium, what are the
key factors that are driving premium, and where the premium will go in
As MBR publishes its annual 5-year outlook for the Global OCTG industry, the group’s tube and pipe team will present their thoughts on how they see the market developing in the next few years. This will include our assessment of the outlook for key demand markets such as the USA, Russian and Central Asia and the Middle Eastern markets. The team will also examine key supply issues that the industry is facing, along with the development of both offshore and unconventional shale drilling worldwide.
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.

In this webcast Martin Haller will consider the main themes that will dominate the markets for bauxite and alumina over the coming decade. This will include the factors that will influence prices, the outlook for trade, market balances and the medium term strategies of the major producers and consumers of bauxite and alumina. The presentation will include an analysis of the major longs and shorts in bauxite and alumina and how these are expected to evolve.
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
