3. Chinese steel industry will focus on domestic market development. Steel export share to production will keep in the range of 10-15% (the share was 6.3% in 2018). Upgrading in equipment manufacturing and development in emerging industries will become driving forces for Chinese steel industry.

5. Chinese steel industry will further optimize layout, and steel capacity will gradually gather in coastal areas of East China.

Q1: Rebar futures contract traded on Shaghai Futures Exchange has huge liquidity, but why there is big price difference between rebar futures price and spot price? Forward contracts even have bigger discount than spot one?

A1: China has lofty rebar capacity; product brands among steelmakers are extremely different; on the coming of month for delivery, futures price will approach spot one.

Q2: what is the impact of China-USA trade talk against China steel industry?

A2: There is slight impact on China steel industry if we only consider the tariff addition on steel products, as US has already levied high anti-dumping tariff and anti-countervailing tariff against Chinas steel exporting shipments. However, Chinese steelmakers pay high attention on the movement in China-USA talks, especially on the change of policy on machinery equipments products originated from China.

During the sidelines of the conference, SteelHome team introduced new products to delegates: SteelHome Database (2019 version), SteelHome APP, Chinese Steelmakers Distribution Map (2019 version), Chinese Steel Supplier Directory (2019 version) etc.
