European steel experts will provide an overview of the challenges facing the European steel industry. EU steel imports recorded new highs in early 2018, but how will the new US Tariffs impact this growth? Will global steel markets experience seismic shifts in steel trade patterns? Is Europe already fairly well protected by trade barriers built up over the recent years? Opinions remain diverse. Against this backdrop European steel consolidation continues, with the mergers of ArcelorMittal/Ilva, and Thyssenkrupp/Tata expected to complete within 2018. How will European M&A activity affect steel supply and pricing? Will US tariffs and changing trade flows impact on going M&A? How is investment strategy influenced in today’s volatile steel landscape? With all this and more, what can we expect for 2nd half of 2018 and 2019 in Europe and globally?
Policies, tariffs and trade issues have been at the centre of the steel market for over two years now. What new challenges lie ahead and how have the decisions taken by President Trump and the European Commission impacted the market? Will 2018 record a massive hike in steel imports into Europe? Steel experts will analyse policy decisions, tariffs, markets and price trends, with a focus on new suppliers, export markets, and end-use sectors.
As the global and European steel industry adjusts to the new era of US-tariffs, and changing trade flows, adding value through the supply chain has never been more important. Industry experts assess the impact of changing requirements and solutions on transport, handling and logistics options in the European steel supply chain.Moderator: Christian Germeroth, Senior Manager, Bronk & Company
China – Iron ore, Turkey – Scrap, Cocking coal, Graphite electrode and energy. Seaborne iron ore and Chinese domestic steel prices have slumped as China continues to assess the possible impacts of the imposition of the US import tariffs. Meanwhile US tariffs are expected to cause a rise in scrap prices as a large portion of US scrap currently exported is expected to stay in the US to cater for increased US steel output. Speakers will discuss Chinese iron ore, the Turkish scrap market, coking coal and graphite electrode supply.
A broad range of issues will impact the steel sector in both within Europe and globally this year. A panel discussion by some of the best-informed and influential people will help focus which trends will be the most important. The panel session will be a rare opportunity to see a range of views debated face-to-face and will provide a great opportunity to put your own questions to senior figures in the sector.
