OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Scenario of Steel Industry:

Global Steel industry

World crude steel production stood at 1622.8 million tonnes during 2015, a decrease of 2.8% over 2014 based on provisional data released by World Steel Association (WSA). During 2015, Chinese crude steel production reached 804 million tonnes, registering a decline of 2.3% over the previous year. China remained the largest crude steel producer in the world, accounting for 73% of Asian and 50% of world crude steel production during 2015. India was the 3rd largest crude steel producer during 2015 and recorded a growth of 2.6% over 2014.

The global steel industry is going through tough times. Steel demand in 2016 is likely to decline owing to a slower pace of economic growth across geographies. As a result, steelmakers are struggling to sustain margins with excess capacity worldwide and historically low prices. Exports from China continue to penetrate market all over the world, exerting downward pressure on the price of hot rolled band (HRB), which is pushing down prices to levels not seen since 2002 to 2004.

In this scenario, steel companies are likely to reduce debt, manage costs and implement operational improvements to counter the turbulence ahead. However, steel will never lose its relevance; and will remain the cornerstone for industrial and infrastructure growth.

Top 5 Steel producing Countries

5 Russia (a) 71.1 71.5 0.5

The global economy is mostly positive with growth picking up in the US, India and Southeast Asia, while several emerging markets are experiencing a deceleration in growth. WSA forecasts that global steel demand will decrease by - 0.8% to 1,488 Mt in 2016 following a contraction of -3.0% in 2015. In 2017, it is forecast that world steel demand will return to growth of 0.4% and will reach 1,494 Mt.
