The steel industry has been rattled by US Section 232 tariffs which threaten to put a dampener on trade and the encouraging global economic growth seen since 2016. Turkey is dependent on free movement of goods to import the raw materials required to produce steel and then export finished steel to the many countries it ranks among its export markets. With a potential trade war on the horizon, to what extent is this business model likely to be disrupted and how can the effects be mitigated?
Turkey has offset declined downstream coil exports to the US with increased shipments to EU countries, while hot rolled flats exports to Italy have increased considerably. The trade has gone both ways. Last year France and Germany recorded increases in supply of some flats categories to Turkey. Potential exists for suppliers on both sides to further develop trade, with steel consumption growth forecasts seen favourable in both the EU and Turkey. However, there is a big question mark over whether this trend will be disrupted by the outcome of the EU’s current safeguard investigation into steel supply diverted away from the US after 232.
With so many factors to consider, it is important the industry meets to at EU-TR to exchange ideas and discuss strategies that can help bring some clarity our business decisions.
