This report is a powerful tool in operational and strategic planning and will enable you to keep your finger on the market pulse.

The analysis is based on an in-depth study of the market structures and producers' competitiveness. The main emphasis is on the current situation in the markets, the main influential factors and price trends. Up-to-date information regarding market structures is drawn from the latest data from the main European steel markets. Manufacturers’ competitiveness and production methods are assessed in terms of costs, margins and raw material usage. Also, you will find a review of CO2 emissions costs, which are considered in producers' cost calculations.
