Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/t2tfbh/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Stainless Steel & Products Industry Report, 2012-2015" report to their offering.
In 2012, stainless steel prices showed the tendency of rise before fall and mobile descending, resulting in a downward trend for most of the traditional stainless steel producing countries. Global stainless steel production for the whole year attained to 35.36 million tons, a slight year-on-year increase, of which, down 1.6% YoY in Western Europe, down 1.2% YoY in the Americas; up 3.7% YoY in Asia; up 18.2% YoY in South Africa.
In recent years, China relying on its substantially increased production has become the main engine for global stainless steel output growth. In 2012 China's stainless steel crude steel production climbed 14% YoY to 16.08 million tons, accounting for 45.5% of the global stainless steel production, of which, 300 series products held a proportion of 49.3%, 200 series products 30.8%, and 400 series products 19.9%.
In China, stainless steel is mainly consumed in household metal products, building materials, machinery, etc., whose stainless steel apparent consumption in 2012 accounted for 28%, 26% and 19% of annual consumption, respectively. China, as a large producer of stainless steel tableware and kitchenware, exports products to developed countries and regions. However, in 2012 under the influence of the Eurozone debt crisis and weak U.S. economic recovery, the exports were impeded, with annual export value down 3.7% YoY to US$1.82 billion.
