Join the Kallanish Euro-Turkey Flat Seminar on the 24th October 2018 held with co-hosts CIB, TCUD, and YISAD, at the distinguished Ciragan Palace Kempinski Istanbul.
Important: All members organisations of CIB, TCUD, and YISAD save an extra €100 on their registration.
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.
The Kallanish Euro-Turkey Flat Seminar 2018 will be held at the Ciragan Palace Kempinski Istanbul.

Çolakoğlu’s involvement in the iron and steel business began with the steel trade business that our founder Mehmet Rüştü Çolakoğlu started in Karaköy, Istanbul, in 1945. The first meltshop went into production in Dilovası in 1969 to supply billets to the domestic market. Thereafter, Çolakoğlu enlarged its product line by starting production of wirerods in 1985 and production of reinforcing bars in 1990. With the meltshop and hot stip mill investments, initiated in 2005, Çolakoğlu is one of the pioneers of Turkish iron and steel industry. The company’s new melt shop was commissioned in 2007 and the new hot strip mill was commissioned in June 2010.
Up to 2010 Çolakoğlu Metalurji’s production was focused on long products, namely, billets, reinforcing bars, wirerods and debars in coils. With its half century of experience in steel production, Colakoğlu has now added hot rolled coils to its product range and has started addressing higher value-added segments such as pipes, automotive, white goods, machinery and structural steel. Its 3 million mt crude steel capacity meltshop enables it to produce 2.5 million mt of billets or 3 million mt of slabs. 3 million mt of Colakoğlu’s hot rolling mill capacity is currently in use. Its hot rolled coil production capacity may reach 4.5 million mt with additional investments.
Colakoğlu’s meltshop is among the most modern crude steel production plants in the world. Production is made with one of the largest electric arc furnaces in the world of 320 mt casting capacity. The company proved its determination in its efforts to bring state-of-the-art technologies to Turkey by investing in a new meltshop and rolling mill for flat products. With its seven-stand line, Çolakoğlu’s facility is able to produce a wide range of materials from low carbon steels suitable for cold forming up to oil and gas pipes, in thicknesses of 1.1-25.4 mm and widths of 800-1,650 mm.
In the coming period, Çolakoğlu Metalurji is aiming to increase both its competitiveness in the international markets and its profitability by making use of the advantages of mass production and focusing on high value-added products.

After a strong start to the year, Turkish economic growth has slowed since the second quarter, impacting domestic flat steel demand. Turkey has also been hit by trade barriers in the US and EU, but its flat steel exports to each region rose on-year in both July and August. The country has implemented its own safeguard tariff in response to the global wave of protectionism. What is the future outlook for Turkish steel demand, given the current financial stress throughout the economy? Will Turkish flat steelmakers take a larger local market share if imports are curbed? Will they be able to retain export market share? Turkey’s steel industry associations give keynote presentations on issues concerning their member companies, followed by an interactive panel discussion on the industry’s challenges and opportunities going forward
With Turkey recently reciprocating the EU’s quota-tariff safeguard measures, trade between the regions could be stifled. Turkish domestic demand is meanwhile suffering from economic distress. What are the main factors at play in Turkey’s flat steel industry, and what is its outlook? In Europe, major mergers and acquisitions activity is resulting in the consolidation of European flat product capacity ownership. Moreover, new safeguard measures are seen limiting imports into the EU. What is the outlook for trade between the two regions, and for the EU steel industry in general.
The US’s status of major export market for Turkish cold rolled and coated flats is under threat from trade barriers. This could impact the wide range of CR and coated flats capacity invested into in recent years in Turkey. There has been talk for a while of Turkey’s automotive and white goods industries increasing the share of domestically-sourced material in their feedstock mix. Will this offset any drop in exports? This session will look at developments in Turkey’s downstream coil market.
Turkish automotive production has performed strongly in recent years thanks to strong demand from export markets. The country is also a major white goods producer and pipemaker, relying on demand from abroad as well as at home. Will these industries be able to continue relying on exports, or are the current problems in Turkey’s economy going to do them significant damage? What are the prospects for construction steel demand given slowing economic growth? This session will look at the latest developments and possible future course of Turkey’s steel end-use sectors
