Iran steel market Trend in Week 33rd  , 2019


Average price of billet was USD 339 /mt ex-work including 9% VAT last Saturday but fell to USD 335/mt by end of the week. The main reason for this decline was religious holidays and market was almost closed. On the other hand, supply of Chador Malo and Khuzestan steel co billet gave the market this feeling that supply trend would not be interrupted. As a result, prices went down, but despite a decline in price, number of billet sellers declined too, this could lead to a higher billet price in coming weeks. It should be reminded that last week was almost inactive due to the mid-week holiday.

Debar price experienced a modest increase during last week from Saturday's average price of USD 376/mt to USD 376/mt by Wednesday. In fact, nothing really happened. The reason for lower price was market closure on Monday due to the religious Holiday. Share of debar in domestic market has fallen relative to exports. Actually debar price is depended on export volume and foreign markets potentials. Foreigners are not yet seriously active due to summer holidays, therefore a sharp decline in debar price seems unlikely. I-beam price didn’t change significantly and the average price of sizes 14 to 18 in Isfahan market declined from USD 378/mt  to USD 377/mt ex-work including 9% VAT.
