Germany Metals Report Q1 2015

Germany's metals sector will continue to feel the squeeze as output prices remain low and costs staystubbornly high. We forecast subdued growth in consumption of key metals such as steel, copper andaluminium, chiefly due to a muted outlook for economic activity in the country. Key metal consumingsectors such as autos and construction will remain weak. For autos production, we do not foresee a return togrowth until 2018 at the earliest.

Illustrative of challenges faced by the wider metals sector, steel mills will remain under significant pressure,as low output prices squeeze margins. This will encourage consolidation of operations and dampen outputgrowth. We forecast that steel production will post only erratic growth in the coming years, as low priceswill continue to bite.
