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

The Dutch steel industry was one of the best performing in the EU in 2011 and although growth will face increasing domestic and external economic pressures, the industry’s high level of integration and competitiveness should ensure it sustains output over the medium-term, according to BMI’s latest Netherlands Metals Report.

In the first seven months of 2011, Dutch crude steel output grew 10.4% y-o-y to 4.13mn tonnes, coming on the back of growth in 2010 of 28.5% to 6.65mn tonnes. A more difficult export environment does not appear to be hindering growth in the Netherlands’ steel industry. However, the industry was still operating at around 95% of pre-recession norms. With output holding steady and the Dutch steel industry’s key markets likely to be well supported over H211, BMI maintains its forecast growth in crude steel output at 6.6% y-o-y to 7.09mn tonnes in 2011 and growth in hot-rolled out output of 5.0% READ MORE >
