BMI's Taiwan Metals Report for Q1 2013 looks at domestic infrastructure spending in Taiwan and how this will affect the prospects of the country's steel makers in 2013. We expect a stronger 2013 for the industry after a very weak 2012.

The Taiwanese steel industry is bearing the full brunt of the slowdown in Asian markets with the worst performance in the region so far this year. Taiwanese crude steel production volumes fell 9.8% year-onyear
(y-o-y) to 17mnt (million tonnes) in the first 10 months of 2012. The industry was not only dealt volume decreases but also price declines given how steel prices in the region performed during the latter half of 2012.

Efforts are underway to improve the competitiveness of the Taiwanese steel industry. The China Steel Corporation (CSC) is looking to improve profitability in an increasingly difficult market environment.

CSC is Taiwan's largest steelmaker, with over 50% of the domestic market. With this in mind it is undertaking reconstruction of its continuous annealing line, which is expected to help produce better products with lower costs and using less electricity.
