United Kingdom Metals Report - Q4 2014

BMI View: After a strong year for the UK steel industry in both production and consumption in 2013, weare forecasting a muted recovery going forward. In line with its European counterparts, the UK metalsindustry has been rocked by low profitability that has led to capacity reductions and disinvestment.

However, the worst is probably over for the UK, as slightly stronger domestic demand and recentinvestment from international firms such as Sahaviriya Steel Industries and Tata Steel should arrest thedecline in sector fortunes and ensure that the sector continues to accelerate through to the end of ourforecast period in 2018.

Serving as a constant reminder that the recovery may be built upon fragile ground, however, monthly datafor activity in the steel sector in the UK has been volatile during the first six months of 2014. Indeed, after astrong start with 30.8% y-o-y growth in January, a 9.3% drop off in activity in April, and a sluggish recoversince means that that m-o-m activity at the end of the first half of the year sits below where it stood sixmonths previously.
