DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ltm3pz/iron_and_steel) has announced the addition of the "Iron & Steel Manufacturing in the US" report to their offering.
Nerves of steel: Rising steel prices and improving demand will support a recovery
This industry is highly volatile, depending greatly on global supply and demand trends. Steel prices change with global economic activity. Operators will experience a recovery over the next five years, after plummeting demand from downstream industries took a toll on the industry during the recession. Most significantly, the rising price of steel and growth in new technologies will benefit iron and steel manufacturers. However increased international competition will characterize the industry in the years to come.
This industry manufactures pig iron, steel and ferroalloys. Pig iron may be manufactured in a blast furnace or via newer direct reduction methods. Steel may be manufactured in basic oxygen furnaces (newly made steel) or in electric arc furnaces (recycled steel). The industry also includes firms that manufacture basic steel shapes (e.g. bars, plates, rods, sheets, strips and wire) or form pipes and tubes from steel they have produced themselves.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
