Steel and steel raw materials

Steel prices, news and analysis covering the global steel and steel raw material markets

The steel industry underpins the global economy. It is deeply intertwined with other industries like automotive, construction and energy – making it subject to risks and opportunities from multiple directions. Decarbonization initiatives also have significant implications for anyone buying, selling or trading in steel markets. These risks include shifts in international competitiveness and the financial risk associated with carbon pricing and regulations. On 8 June, Fastmarkets launched a suite of green steel prices to bring clarity and support investment decisions needed to reduce emissions.
