Iran steel market Trend in Week 36th  , 2020


The average price of billet on last Monday was USD 428 /mt ex-work including 9% VAT. By Tuesday some factors including higher ex-rate made prices at IME increase, this affected retail market too as price reached an average of USD 452 /mt. With the cancellation of billet transactions at IME, the price returned to USD 438 /mt ex-work including 9% VAT on Wednesday.

The main reason of higher price of billet at IME was the increase in the base price, which is due to the increase in export price and higher currency rate.

It seems that authorities’ efforts to control prices will not succeed for reasons including lack of pellet supply, export price trend and exchange rate.
