The article focuses on the key themes underlying the global steel market in 2006 as discussed by Peter F. Marcus and Karlis M. Kirsis at the Steel Success Strategies conference of the "American Metal Market" in New York in June 2006. Providing a steady foundation for steel profits are global steel consumption, the improvement of pricing power by the consolidation among steel producers and the growing trade surplus of China. The financial trading of steel products and steel scrap will grow by 2011.
