BMI's Netherlands Metals Report for Q1 2013 examines plans for expansion of the country's highly integrated and competitive steel industry as it strives to increase the value of production, but flags shortterm concerns about the impact of external market problems, notably the eurozone crisis. The report also analyses the growth and risk management strategies being employed by the leading players in the steel and aluminium sectors, as they seek to minimise the effects of the crisis on their operations.

In the first 10 months of 2012, Dutch crude steel output fell 0.7% to 5.74mn tonnes (mnt), which was better than the EU average. The performance was also better than BMI had anticipated, prompting an upward revision in the full-year estimate from 6.76mnt to 6.84mnt in spite of the estimated 0.6% decline in GDP. This represents a decline of 1.4% following two years of growth that saw output up 4.0% and 28.5% in 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Tata Steel Europe is aiming to reduce costs by 20% in FY2012/13, while at the same time increasing investment. It is spending EUR800mn in increasing liquid steel-making capacity at Ijmuiden by 500,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) to 7.7mn tonnes READ MORE >
