New Market Research Report: Ukraine Metals Report Q2 2013

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Apr 23 2013

Ukraine's metal sector will see modest growth over the coming years with a handful of new projects set to push production growth higher. However, production will not return to its pre-crisis highs as we expect steel prices to remain relatively low by historical standards and global overcapacity to remain. These two factors will disincentivise significant expansions. Indeed, none of the major players in either the aluminium or steel industries have announced substantial investment in Ukraine.

Ukraine has the added disadvantage of an over-valued hryvnia, which has made Ukrainian steel exports uncompetitive. Recent currency weakening may not be sufficient to ameliorate the situation. The most recent example of the ongoing decline in Ukrainian steelmaking is the closure in November of Mechel's 1mntpa EAF in Donetsk due to weak markets and poor export demand. Mechel is trying to sell the lossmaking plant to drive down its own debt, but has failed to attract interest.
