The article presents the views of executives from leading U.S. steel mills on the future of steel industry. According to W. Byron Dunn, president and CEO of Lone Star Steel Co., though the steel market has stabilized and prices have firmed at a higher level, the steel tubular market is suffering from excess capacity in some product lines, and excess imports from China. However, Dunn sees growth in both the small and large-diameter segments of the market in late 2005. Because of high natural gas prices, Dunn does not expect much growth in consumer demand for gas. INSET: Execs Want More Trade Intervention.
