In the first half of the five-year period, declining steel prices resulted in mixed demand from key downstream customers. In coming years, there is potential for revenue growth as consumer and business confidence increase. As consumers and businesses become more confident in the health of the economy, they are likely to increase demand for products manufactured by key downstream industries.
