BMI View: Germany s steel production balance will fall further into negative territory over our --------- forecast period as the country s major producers scale back capacity in a bid to protect operating margins.

A number of firms, including market leader ThyssenKrupp, have undertaken aggressive cost-cutting measures, which should see the country s total output contract in ---- before rebounding slightly over the remainder of the forecast period. However, with autos and construction demand set to remain sluggish, we expect steelmakers to focus increasingly on overseas ventures and the production of high-end products. ...In ----, Germany reported a steel production surplus of -.-mnt, before posting an estimated deficit of --,--- tonnes (kt) in ----. We forecast this deficit to have widened to -.-mnt by end----- as the country s crude steel consumption outgrows local production.

We expect output growth to remain moderate across the core metals products we monitor through to the end of our forecast period in ----. ...BMI s outlook for the German economy is increasingly positive, with our Country Risk team having recently raised its expectations for GDP growth to -.- for ----. While this relatively bullish growth should result in a relatively stable level of metals consumption, we caution that demand will be tempered by weak growth in vehicle production due to soft sales across the eurozone as well as key German exports markets, such as China and Russia. With residential home sales also lacklustre, construction growth will also be sluggish over the forecast period. ...While this relatively bullish growth should result in a relatively stable level of metals consumption, we caution that demand will be tempered by weak growth in vehicle production due to soft sales across the eurozone as well as key German exports markets, such as China and Russia.
