BMI View: Having enjoyed strong growth over H114, Czech steel output is now showing signs of slowing as producers find themselves facing a weakening demand scenario. Slowing economic growth in Germany and the wider eurozone region will continue to be the main challenge facing Czech steel mills during 2015 and we have our revised our production forecasts for the country downwards in reflection of this.

BMI's Q115 Czech Republic Metals Report assesses the challenges facing the country's steel sector as it battles against faltering demand in the wake of ongoing uncertainty surrounding the outlook for the eurozone economy. Czech steel production contracted by more than 9% in 2012, only to recover some of its lost growth in 2013. Accelerating output growth appeared to suggest that production was en route to expand by more than 6% over 2014; however, since then we have seen a drop-off in Czech steel production volumes, linked to the country's weakening industrial production data. The Czech steel sector has traditionally been one of the strongest in Europe and has been supported, in particular, by the country's close proximity to economic juggernaut Germany, while strong ties to Russia have provided a steady flow of raw materials to local steelmakers.
