Iran Steel Market Trend Iran Steel Market Trend (Visit Count : 2001)


Billet price declined by Rials200,000/mt during last week in Iran. Khouzestan Steel Co offered its billet at Rials10 million/mt. Billet size 150 mm from private mills was Rials10-10.3 million/mt and size 125 mm at Rials9.4-9.6 million/mt.  Prices were down due to wait and see policy of market players.

Traders are not interested in investing on billet and long products suppliers have problem in selling their products. Therefore, billet market is quiet and stopped. Some players believe in near future this trend will continue.


Long products

Debar dia 14-25 mm from Esfahan Steel Co dropped by Rials400,000/mt to Rials12.4 million/mt ex-works including VAT during last week. Other producers debar price was unchanged as it’s at the bottom. I-beam price also declined except sizes 14-18 mm which were unchanged.

Other long products were down by Rials300,000/mt, especially angle and channel size 14 mm or lower were down by Rials400,000/mt. Wait and see policy has made inventory levels at the bottom. Producers are working cautiously and reduced production level to the minimum.


Flat Products

HRC 2 mm thickness was down by Rials200,000/mt at Anzali port to Rials12.7 million/mt on truck including VAT and custom duty and down by Rials100,000/mt at Imam Khomeini port to Rials12.4 million/mt on truck including VAT and custom duty.

By end of the week it was heard that Kazakh origin HRC 2 mm may be priced at USD270/mt cfr Anzali port, but for big parcels.

Ex-rate was downward and demand is at the bottom but downward trend in prices was not significant. Mobarakeh Steel co product size 2.5-15 mm was in limited supply but buyers were also not eager to deal on it. HRP price from Oxin co dropped by Rials 700,000/mt, but still there was no buyer in the market. With the competition between sellers and lack of demand, this trend may continue.

HDG market was down by Rials500,000/mt and is expected to continue declining in coming weeks.
