BMI's Q113 Turkey metals report examines how the country's steel industry has performed in the face of external headwinds and warns that some segments are facing increased pressure as a result of decreased manufacturing activity in the EU. It examines the latest plant projects and whether output is keeping pace with the ongoing increases in capacity. The report also analyses the investment strategies being employed by the leading players in the Turkish steel industry, as they seek to maximise the growth opportunities offered by the regional market.

BMI believes Turkey is still on course for its forecast 6% growth in crude steel output for 2012, to 36.1mnt.
