The growth witnessed in French steel consumption and output in 2010 is set to slow in 2011 due to decreasing rates of private consumption growth, according this latest France Metals Report from BMI.

In the first 11 months of 2010, French crude steel output was up 21.7% year-on-year (y-o-y) to 11.3mn tonnes, with blast furnace output up 31.9% y-o-y to 9.1mn tonnes and EAF output up 7.3% to 5.2mn tonnes. However, growth moderated in H210 with monthly output in November down 1.6% y-o-y and 6.1% m-o-m to 1.29mn tonnes; blast furnace output was down 13.6% y-o-y to 751,000 tonnes while EAF output was up 21.9% y-o-y to 539,000 tonnes.
