According to Chinese steel marketing, some professional says the international steel outlook will keep increase in 2016, due to the domestic demand and export market recovery.
For the carbon steel, many mills are showing up, but the raw material price is going up,which lead to all kinds of steel go high. Indeed for flat-rolled products, which continue to revive most rapidly, there is nothing remotely positive about the export market for Chinese suppliers thanks to huge duties now placed on Chinese steels in various markets.
In a word, carbon steel and flat-rolled exports fell by 18% year-on-year from January. However, for long products, it is very positive in the international market.
