Business Monitor International's Brazil Metals Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, metals associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Brazil's metals industry.

Brazil’s crude steel production in November 2009 hinted at things to come in 2010. Output reached 2.68mn tonnes, up by 15% on the same month in 2008 to show a y-o-y increase in total production. Demand from Argentina, Taiwan and India produced a surge in Brazilian flat rolled steel products in September 2009. Exports of the products hit US$234mn, 79% up on the same month in 2008. Buoyed by the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games, the country’s steel association IBS optimistically forecasts a return to 2008 production levels in 2010. IBS expects crude steel production to reach 33.1mn tonnes and consumption to reach 22.9mn tonnes in 2010. The association also sees exports strengthening by 16% up to 11mn tonnes in 2010, compared with 9.5mn tonnes in 2009. Total production in the 11 months to November 2009 was 25% down on 2008, however, reaching 23.93mn tonnes. BMI is more pessimistic in its forecasts READ MORE >
