Outlook Global growth outlook is on track and economic activity in both advanced and emerging/developing economies is expected to accelerate. US growth expectations have been marked down amidst less expansionary policy stance, while the Euro area activity continues to improve, helped by continued expansionary monetary policy, reduced political uncertainty and better domestic demand. Japan growth outlook is marginally better than earlier expectations, supported by private consumption and export growth. Chinese economic growth has positively surprised on the back of fiscal policy supported front‐loaded infrastructure investment. Thus, global growth outlook for CY2017 remains firm. Page 3 of 3 Global steel production grew by ~36mmt in 1HCY17 as against WSA (World Steel Association) CY2017 estimate for demand growth of ~20mmt. However, China has positively surprised with a ~35mmt apparent steel demand growth in 1HCY17, driven by fiscal stimulus, against a flattish demand estimate by WSA for CY17. Global steel demand growth appears to be better than earlier expectations. Chinese steel exports have come down by ~28% in 1HCY17.

However, exports from Japan and Korea continue to remain at elevated levels with pricing at a discount to their domestic market. Steel prices are improving with cost push from iron ore and coking coal amidst improved demand environment in China. Steel imports into India, after correcting in April, have again risen to ~8mmt on annualised basis. Crude steel production in 1QFY18 increased by 3.5%YoY, whereas apparent finished steel consumption in the quarter grew by 4.6%YoY. Steel demand is improving with increasing public sector spending; reflected in increased activity in sectors like roads, power T&D, solar energy, earthmoving equipment, pre-engineered buildings, and water & gas pipelines. Steel demand is on track to grow by 5% in FY2018; although sluggish private capex remains a concern.
