The iron and steel industry is in a downturn. Shanghai steel union seeks a breakthrough in transformation.
the profit margin of the iron and steel industry is approaching zero.
since this year, the output of China's iron and steel industry has maintained rapid growth, but the growth of steel market demand is less than expected. In this case, steel enterprises are generally bearish on the aftermarket, and steel prices continue to fall. According to the data of the National Bureau of statistics, the average daily output of crude steel in China is 2.513 million tons, which is equivalent to the annual output of crude steel of 785 million tons. However, the data released by the steel logistics professional committee of the China Federation of logistics and purchasing showed that the PMI index of the domestic steel industry was 46.8% in May, which has remained below the 50% boom and bust line for three consecutive months
My steel price is expected to decline by another 15% this year
on June 24, Yu Liangui, my vice president of steel, said that based on the steel market situation this year, my steel consumption this year is expected to be roughly the same as that of last year, or a slight increase of% and the requirements for force measuring machines are high; However, in terms of steel prices, they may fall by another% after a 15% decline last year. Yu Liangui said that at present, China's steel production capacity has been seriously overcapacity, and the road to "de capacity" will be very long, and the main means of de capacity is price leverage. Therefore, in the long run, it is difficult for steel prices to perform well, and there will be no strong rise like that before 2008
