Scrap demand is weak in the Italian domestic market, while scrap availability is on the low side. Sources polled by SteelOrbis explained that prices are very weak, but they have mostly trended sideways in past weeks due to low scrap availability. Compared to last week, local scrap prices have remained stable or decreased slightly. Busheling scrap prices decreased the most due to lower demand compared to other scrap qualities.
