In 2017, the Chinese steel market continued to improve, thanks to the deepened supply-side reform and the success in reducing excess production capacity, with increased capacity utilization rate, rallied steel prices, record-setting profit, and decreased steel exports.

Will steel producers continue to make big profit in 2018? Will supply-side reform continue to support strong steel prices? Will the downstream sectors continue to help maintain the delicate balance between demand and supply? Where will Chinese steel export be heading with the global market warming up?

To address these questions and share their insights, the 16th International Steel Market and Trade Conference will again bring together leaders and experts of the Chinese and the world steel industries.

With the participation of all major Chinese steel producers, steel traders and steel buyers, plus the concurrent business matching salon, the conference will be a unique place to understand market trends, know people and do business.

Serving as an official platform for CISA to release its annual review and forecast of the Chinese steel market, a vehicle for information exchange and dialogue between CISA and its counterparts around the world, and most importantly a window for the Chinese steel industry to understand the world and the world steel community to understand China, the Steel Market and Trade Conference has been successfully convened for 15 times since its establishment in 2000 and has become one of the most important steel events in the world.

Main Topics of the Conference

  • Chinese Economy Outlook and its Influence on the Steel Industry;
  • Supply-side Structural Reform, Reducing Excess Capacity and Consequences to the Steel Market;
  • Chinese Steel Industry and Steel Market Outlook;
  • World Steel Market and Major Regional Steel Markets Update;
  • China’s Steel Import & Export: Detailed Analysis and Outlook;
  • Performance of the Main Steel Consuming Sectors and their Steel Demand;
  • Surviving Strategies for Steel Enterprises and Steel Traders;
  • The Development of Steel Trading E-platforms;
  • Risk Management with Steel Futures.
