During the given week, production restriction measures have been implemented in China, reducing supply of steel pipe in the local market and boosting sentiment. However, demand for steel pipe has been relatively slack ahead of the long National Day holiday. It is expected that ex-China steel pipe prices will move sideways in the coming week.
