With China’s steel production surge now decades old, China’s scrap market is now responding with significant and sustained growth in supply. How the sector develops, and how fast different parts of the sector develop, is crucial to understanding the Chinese steel industry in the coming years. The impacts will be felt much further afield however. With scrap steadily replacing hot metal as an input for steelmaking, iron ore and coking coal miners and their customers in the rest of the world will also feel the reverberations of China’s shift to scrap.

The changes will be even more directly felt in the domestic industry. Processes of standardisation and financialisation of scrap trading will provide steelmakers with both opportunities and challenges. More fundamental changes of supply and demand, and the policy environment, will meanwhile influence both investment and operations at steelmakers. EAF capacity is set to grow even as steel production declines, while scrap utilization ratios will eventually be driven by lower scrap costs. 

The Kallanish China Scrap Markets 2019-2025 report is designed to provide a solid understanding for anyone looking at the sector, and attempt to give a forecast with a base-case scenario for Chinese scrap in the years up to 2025. Government stimulus packages and environmental considerations are just some of the factors impacting domestic scrap supply and demand.
