PRICING NOTICE: Discontinuation of EU export stainless steel grade 304 cold-rolled sheet price

Metal Bulletin has today discontinued its weekly assessment for 2mm grade 304 cold-rolled stainless sheet export fob Northern European ports.

After a consultation period, Metal Bulletin has suspended its EU export price assessment for grade 304 stainless steel cold-rolled sheets. European exports of commodity-grade stainless steel products such as 2mm grade 304 cold rolled stainless sheet have fallen in recent years amid the strong rise of lower-cost production in Asia.

This has led to a less-liquid spot market; as a result, Metal Bulletin has discontinued assessing export prices for this product.

If you have any comments on the discontinuation of this price, please contact Ross Yeo by email at: Please add the subject heading FAO: Ross Yeo re: EU grade 304 export stainless steel sheet price.

All historical data relating to this price prior to its suspension will remain available in the pricing section of the Metal Bulletin website.
