EU STEEL PRICES SOAR IN FEBRUARY – MEPS

Steel Feb 17, 2011 No Comments

EU Average Hot Rolled Coil transaction price soared by almost €100 per tonne in February. Buyers are anticipating further increases in domestic values of flat products in the second quarter as steelmakers make large upward adjustments, in line with higher raw material costs.

The EU mills are currently busy because of the restocking exercise that started in December ahead of price rises.
