14th China International Steel & Raw Materials Conference – 2014

14th China International Steel and Raw Materials Conference

Halfway through 2014, Chinese steel industry is still faced with a lot of challenges including overcapacity, falling steel price, rising production costs, mounting environmental pressure and the whole industry is running on low profits. The slowdown in Chinese steel production growth, coupled with high steel and iron ore stockpiles,shrinking demand and increasing supply for iron ore, have all added to the expectation for a severe oversupplied market.
