Metal Bulletin Research (MBR) have published an in-depth 300 page study, Value
Creation Strategies for the Steel Industry - Challenges and Opportunities by
Major End-User Consuming Markets which focuses on steel producer value
creation strategies towards the vitally important end-user industries of
residential and non-residential construction, transportation, wind farms and
renewable energy markets (a new and exciting area Metal Bulletin Research
explore in-depth in this study), railways, shipbuilding, containers, steel
drums, domestic appliances, metals packaging and defense.
Today's steel industry is a very competitive and challenging environment, in
which this study helps to identify:
- The major influences that will shape the steel industry over the next
- How steel producers can tackle the issues by positioning their company
strategically along the value chain;
- Which market segments will offer growth prospects;
- What the future demand and revenue will be by steel product;
- What are the varying price premiums steelmakers can obtain for producing
varying steel grades and treatments, such as deep drawing (DD12 / DD14),
structure steels (S275 / S355), high strength low alloy, medium carbon steel
and various surface treatments.
‘Value Creation Strategies for the Steel Industry - Challenges and
Opportunities by Major End-User Consuming Markets’ examines the varying
strategies already being adopted by some of the key global steel suppliers,
including case studies for Thyssen Krupp, ArcelorMittal, Evrazholding and Tata
The study critically analyses their attempts at adding value with regards to
research & product technology innovations, customer services, cost reduction
strategies, raw material supply & vertical integration strategies,
consolidation market share and economies of scale, adaption strategies to new
energy mix / climate change politics. What are the lessons learnt? What have
been the measurable benefits and what have been the pit-falls?
The study goes on to examine a variety of end-user market areas in examining
the key demand drivers for the steel industry, all with very different
characteristics and implications for value adding strategies.
