Industry Profile
Industry Overview
The article presets a quarterly overview of U.S. industries with special reference to metal industry. The health of the steel industry has improved in 2002, but faces the return of several old challenges. Steel producers in the United States have seen improvement in 2002 largely because of less supply. There was a fear that restricting the U.S. market would cause a glut of diverted tonnage worldwide, but much of the excess has been absorbed by China, and other governments also implemented safeguards to prevent import surges. Prices are higher worldwide, despite a global recession that has curtailed demand.
