Alexei Yedapin, the chief specialist of NLMK, has analyzed the market of rolled sheet.
In particular, in the segment of hot-rolled metal, under the pressure of the export situation, the prices grew considerably in H1. The imposition of protection measures by some countries, as well as the drop of the Turkish lira resulted in the decrease of both world and Russian prices in summer.
In the cold-rolled segment in 8 months NLMK increased sales to the local market by 6% YoY.
The expert does not see any serious changes of cold-rolled metal prices in Q4 as to Q3. (Ukrainian metal)
