Metals Meltdown

Electrodes, changing trade flows top of mind for many in steel

September 29, 2017 (9:38 mins)



The global graphite electrode shortage is likely to linger through next year, some say, raising input costs for steelmakers and potentially curbing production. At the same time, uncertainty remains regarding the ongoing US Section 232 investigation -- which coupled with existing trade litigation -- is prompting many to reconsider longstanding export destinations. A high-ranking Chinese steel official also makes the case at a major rebar conference that China is a global leader in cutting excess capacity. Metals Meltdown’s Christopher Davis and Sebastian Lewis are joined by special guest, S&P Global Platts metals news and pricing content leader Colin Richardson, to discuss these issues and more.
