U.S. Industry Quarterly Review: Metals;2005 3rd Quarter, p63
Industry Profile
Industry Overview
The article presents an update on the steel industry in the U.S. as of April 2005 and presents an outlook for the industry until 2009. Prices for metal products declined in 2004. However, prices will rebound as mills cover scrap costs which will only last for the first quarter of 2006. Supply will be sufficient for most products due to the high imports that began in mid-2004 and lasted until early 2005. Steel demand, on the other hand, is good but not spectacular.
