    Session 1: Setting the scene - Debating the big picture

    The global steel sector and its raw material suppliers continue to be caught up in trends largely beyond their control. In this opening session, steel experts will provide an overview of the challenges facing the European steel industry, and the new opportunities being thrown up by the changing market conditions. EU steel imports recorded new highs in early 2018; but how will US tariffs and EU policy impact this trend? Will global steel markets experience seismic shifts in steel trade flows? Is Europe already fairly well protected by trade barriers built up over recent years? Against this backdrop, European steel consolidation continues. How will European M&A activity affect steel supply and pricing? To what extent will US tariffs and EU policy impact on-going M&A? How is investment strategy influenced in today’s volatile steel landscape? With all this and more, what can we expect for the rest of 2018 and 2019? The only certainty is opinions remain diverse.

Steel experts will analyse policy decisions, tariffs, markets and price trends, with a focus on new suppliers, export markets, and end-use sectors.
