Steel price forecast - European long products

Falling international scrap prices are expected to lead to a decline in transaction prices for EU long products in the coming months according to an assessment just published by MEPS.

Coupled with a slowdown in construction over the winter months, this trend is likely to lead to a sharp decline in rebar prices in Europe as the end of the year arrives. A price correction can then be expected in the beginning of 2008.

However, it is now becoming clear that the rate of steel price decline is slowing.
This is partly because the inventory drawdown is coming to an end.
