    Session 1: Global steel market megatrends – where will this decade take us?

    The global economy has experienced significant disruption in recent years due to multiple Black Swans, geopolitical fragmentation, and the acceleration of the energy transition. These factors reshape trade patterns and supply chains, alter consumer attitudes, and increase production costs in different regions. This session will analyse the major factors affecting the global steel industry, including the megatrends shaping the decade.

    • •  How will the energy transition impact steel business?
    • •  To what extent will new technology shape the industry?
    • •  How can businesses respond to increasing fragmentation?
    • •  Is resource nationalism inevitable?
    • •  To what extent will the electric automotive industry’s role in steel consumption diminish?
    • •  How are changing consumer attitudes towards climate driving emissions reduction?
    • •  Will global overcapacity threaten the progress of decarbonisation investments?

    Format: 10-12 min presentations + Q&A

    Session 2: What’s driving the global scrap market? A look into trade, policy & energy

    Amid the rapid socioeconomic change and uncertainty, business cycles in the steel industry are getting harder to predict and scrap suppliers are having to adapt. The Indian subcontinent is challenging Turkey’s seaborne scrap market dominance, while the growing trend of steelmaking electrification is threatening policy restrictions on scrap trade. Although scrap demand is touted to rise, it could initially be hampered by energy bottlenecks in some regions, such as Europe. Meanwhile, various scrap markets have emerged as important global players due to significantly increased EAF capacity, including Bangladesh and Pakistan, as well as, more recently, Egypt. This session will examine the global scrap market's main challenges and opportunities.

    • •  Are Turkish imports still the global scrap market maker?
    • •  Will China ramp up scrap imports? Will it ever enter the export market?
    • •  How is India’s increasing scrap import demand shaping the market?
    • •  How would global trade be affected by scrap export restrictions in the largest supplier, the EU?
    • •  How do increasing energy costs in some regions, including Turkey, impact scrap business?
    • •  To what extent will steelmaking electrification change trade patterns?
    • •  What is the scope for Bangladesh and Pakistan scrap demand growth and impact on trade?

    Format: 10-15 min presentations + Q&A

    Session 3: New trends in global scrap

    Steelmakers are increasingly looking to vertical integration, buying up scrap processors in order to ensure feedstock supply security at a time when scrap is becoming a critical resource. Various scrap markets are meanwhile emerging as major buyers and threatening to reconfigure long-established trade routes. Technology development is touted to improve scrap processing, thereby raising yield and lowering emissions. To what extent are suppliers reorienting towards new markets? Does the prospect of closed-loop recycling present an opportunity or challenge for scrap suppliers? How are scrap suppliers adapting to low-emission requirements? This session will delve into why mills are finding it important to secure scrap expertise, as well as analysis of global scrap trade with a particular focus on new markets.

    • •  Why are steelmakers investing into scrap and what is the outlook?
    • •  What are the prospects for scrap demand from the emerging buyers?
    • •  Which new scrap supplying and buying markets can we expect to impact global trade?
    • •  What is the outlook for seaborne scrap trade amid decarbonisation?
    • •  How can technology advancements prepare scrap supply for future low-emission demand?

    Format: 10-15 min presentations + Q&A

    Session 4: Where are scrap prices heading in 2024?

    Although scrap prices have declined towards the end of 2023 from their peak in March, and are nowhere near elevated 2021 levels, they remain above pre-Covid values. As EAF steelmaking share grows, there is an expectation that demand for scrap and therefore its prices will be pushed up. With Turkish mills suffering from competitiveness issues, Indian subcontinent demand carried the scrap market for much of 2023. Will this remain the case? This session will look at where prices are heading in 2024 and why.

    • •  How did scrap prices chart over 2023 and where are they heading in 2024?
