World steel price rallyMEPS predicts that its World Composite Steel Price will rise by approximately 11.5 percent by mid 2012. The most significant gains are anticipated in the flat products segment as prices rally after the substantial reductions in the second half of last year.

The steel price revival was led by the changing market situation in North America as scrap prices surged at the end of 2011. The prospect of higher raw material costs also pushed up steel selling values recently in Asia and Europe.
