Asia Steel Markets 2022

This event is past. Prospectus PDF



East Asia has dominated the global steel industry for decades. With global prices now being set by war and new major exporters, is its influence now waning or will it return as a dominant force later this year? Developing markets in Southeast and South Asia are now leading global steel demand growth. China is at a turning point in its economic history, with profound implications for steel. Weaker demand is being matched by weaker production, but will restraints continue indefinitely? Meanwhile, will India’s new wave of capacity lead to a new wave of exports? In this case, will demand growth in Southeast and South Asia be enough to absorb the excess, considering their own expanding capacity?

The last two years have seen raw materials markets in turmoil as shortages and trade disruptions have first sent prices spiralling higher. This was interrupted by their collapse on the back of sharp cutbacks in Chinese production, but the Russian invasion of Ukraine has again sent markets into turmoil. Trade has also had a tumultuous few years with the US-China showdown, Covid, freight rate surges and a range of new restrictions on exports and imports for various products, as well as the new impact of sanctions on Russia. New export giants may be developing in South Asia, with India looking more like China circa 2005. Amid all this, new trade frameworks are developing as the WTO loses influence and competing trading blocs evolve. Competition and protectionism are important drivers which could dramatically shape steel trade flows in the coming years.

  • 13:00-14:15

    Keynote Session 1: Asia steel markets: from one crisis to another

    East Asia’s domination of the global steel industry may be waning, but does the current supply crisis following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine hasten or delay this trend? Developing markets in Southeast and South Asia are now leading global steel demand growth, and emerging regions have a chance to shine as stimulus packages are rolled out. Skyrocketing global steel pries however are leaving these markets as price takers. The sudden drop off in supply from Russia and Ukraine has boosted prices for regional exporters, including in China, India and within Southeast Asia, but end user demand is being constrained as soaring energy and commodity prices bring demand destruction in their wake. In the midst of all of this, China is at a turning point in its economic history, with profound implications for steel. Weaker demand is being matched by weaker production, but ongoing crises are pressuring China towards further stimulus.


    Who will gain most from soaring prices and supply disruptions?
    How will peak Chinese steel affect the rest of the region?
    How will trade flows shift as capacity investments come online?
    Will the region emerge smoothly from the pandemic?
    Will Southeast Asia become a target for agressive exports as globilization retreats?

    Session 2: Investment, demand and the green economy

    Although capacity investments have shifted from East Asia to the South and Southeast, Asia remains the key driver of global investment. After constant complaints of global overcapacity, global markets now seen extremely tight. Does this short term shock justify long term investments? With climate change and other environmental issues becoming more important, are current investments the right ones? Does the looming economic crisis mean an end to regulatory pressures on the environment, or will they be tightened? We are already seeing new carbon border taxes and steelmakers charging carbon emissions surcharges. Will these measures survive the rush to find any available energy source? Does China point the way with its peaking capacity and shift towards EAFs? Or is something more radical needed? Demand remains the key driver of investment, so will this trump environmental concerns? Will India’s new wave of capacity lead to a new wave of exports, and how much more steel can Southeast Asia take as it too builds up its domestic production capacities?

    Will environmental factors weigh on investment decisions?
    Will demand growth be enough to sustain planned capacity investments?
    Which regions and companies will take the lead in shaping the future of the industry?

    Session 3: Asia Steel Markets - Decarbonisation, Trading & Finance

    The global need to confront climate change and other ESG issues will require changes in how normal business operates. Tracing carbon footprints through the value chain has led the way in these technologies, but accurate sourcing in an increasingly divided world may have growing regulatory importance. These changes will affect the entire value chain and require new forms of accounting to ensure key metrics, such as emissions reductions, can be proved and add value. Alongside this, the digitisation of more processes, including trade and finance, allow for enhanced monitoring of ESG issues. With growing trade policies linking costs to emissions, and growing consumer demands that the social and environmental impacts of the products they buy are fully documented, companies will need to keep up to date with developments in order to maintain the value of their trade and avoid being cut out of some markets.
