Asia Steel Markets 2024

This event is past. Prospectus PDF



Steel markets globally have faced demand destruction, geopolitical conflict, shifting environmental regulations, high-interest rates, currency fluctuations, and an increasingly troubled Chinese real estate sector. Some of these changes are structural, such as the end of Chinese demand growth, and the emergence of India as the key growth driver. Others are simply stubborn, such as high energy costs and interest rates. Some problems, such as geopolitical and trade issues, are fundamentally unstable and likely to cause volatility. Amidst all this, the industry is facing growing expectations to decarbonise in line with global carbon emissions reduction goals.

In 2024, the landscape for the next development phase of the global steel industry will be more clearly revealed. Asia is at the heart of the industry’s future and is under the greatest pressure as capacity is restructured and relocated. The region, especially Southeast Asia, is highly dependent on trade for raw materials and outlets for its steel products. As such, new measures such as CBAM in Europe, a potential tie-up between Europe and the USA, and geopolitical shifts in trade as wars continue to shape the world into blocks, will impact local producers,

But the world is full of opportunities as well as problems. The green transition will require immense investment across the entire industry. High-end steelmakers and miners of high-grade ores will see their premiums steadily increase. As trade barriers rise, nimble players will find open markets. We look forward to discussing the industry's opportunities and risks at our conference.



Asia Steel Markets 2024 will take place at the Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers

Address: 88 Dong Khoi, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam 700000
