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

The Italian steel industry continues to enjoy one of the strongest performances in the EU, contributing a fifth of overall EU growth in output. However, we have a cautious view on the future of the sector, in line with our below consensus views on eurozone economic growth, which we expect to dip into recession in 2012.

In the first eight months of 2011 Italian crude steel output grew by 5.5% year-on-year (y-o-y) to 17.2mnt (mn tonnes), representing 19% of the increase in EU steel output over the period. Output is set to rise further through the rest of 2011 following the restarting of No.4 blast furnace, operated by Riva Group subsidiary Ilva, in Taranto in April 2011. The blast furnace has been completely rebuilt with new technology, reducing its energy consumption and coking coal needs thereby raising profitability. The rebuild cost is estimated to be EUR240mn.
