Global Economy projected to grow by 3.3 percent in 2012 after clocking 3.8 percent in 2011.
Subdued steel demand in EU, Japan and USA.
Restriction on real estate and restructuring of small scale polluting steel units and recent strategy of moderating GDP growth rate by China leads to a suppressed growth in steel demand. Would Surplus steel in China cause concern to India?
Marginal hike in Finished Long Steel prices following rise in scrap prices with less volatility in coal & iron ore prices – may dampen move for immediate price increase.
