China’s Steel Industry:

A New World Reality

SBB Dubai 3 September 2007

Roger Manser SBB Global Editor


Structure of Presentation

  • How is China changing?

  • How is China changing the world steel industry?

  • Some conclusions


(1) How is China changing?

  • Becoming a manufacturing powerhouse

  • Looking for self-sufficiency

  • Investing in urbanisation/ new infrastructure

  • Consequences in China for steel:

  • Strong growth in production and consumption

  • A growing excess of production over consumption

  • Slow consolidation/continuing fragmentation



Looking to be self-sufficient

Three Gorges Dam 3m+ tonnes


Construction takes 200m t/y= 50-60% of China’s consumption


2000-2008f

19 %/ yr

in Million tonnes

1980-1999

7.1 % p.a.

1949-1979

13.3 % p.a.

Strong Growth in Production

Crude Steel Output 1949 – 2008f


Strong Domestic Consumption

Million tonnes

2000-2008f:

16%/ yr


Fragmentation Continues

How is China changing the world steel industry?

  • Higher raw material prices

  • New investment, mainly in flats

  • Import substitution ….. now exports

  • Financialization, and global M+A

  • Defensive moves

Threat from Chinese Exports

SBB estimates

Producer-led pricesinc High Strength, Tinplate, HG Flats, HG Pipe, Most Stainless/ Specials

Most at threat

13%

27%

10%

Producer-influenced pricesinc Other HG Flats, Some Beams, Other Stainless etc

Moderate threat

48%

Commodity pricesinc Bars, Rods, Most Sections, Other Flats (for construction), Other Pipe

Quality: grade, dimension, market etc


Demand Prices Profits M+A Finance

2003-6: Global consolidation

2001-5: Steel suppliers earn more

  • ArcelorMittal

  • Tata Corus

  • Essar Algoma

  • SSAB Ipsco

  • NLMK Duferco


Open to Foreign M+A

Dislike of Foreign M+A

Dislike of Foreign M+A by Companies


SBB’s Conclusions for China:

  • A slow-down in production and consumption growth

  • No real restructuring through M+A

  • Supply side export controls?

  • Smaller mills may soon face squeeze

  • BUT

  • Crude production soon @ 500m t/y

  • Some decline in exports, in due course


SBB’s Conclusions for China and the World

  • Demand strongest in emerging markets

  • Three scenarios:

    • Insufficient new capacity globally

      • Growth in CN exports/AD+CVD

    • Stronger RMB, curbed GDP, licences

      • Decline in exports

    • Decline in global GDP growth (CN )

      • Prices weaken


Other Pointers for the Future

  • Higher raw material prices for some time

  • Growth outside Europe - GHGs

  • More complex global supply chains

    • More differentiation in finished qualities

  • More price volatility/shorter cycles

    • Reference prices

  • Global M+A less likely

    • But more local M+A probable
