Influence of the Production Factors and Export–Import Metal Trading Operations on the State of the Art of the World Steel Market
The influence of export–import operations on the steelmaking production and the consumption of steel products in the world after the 2009 global financial crisis is estimated. Export is shown to prevail over import in terms of the rolled products in CIS, Asia and the world market, and export operations with first-stage cast steel products are most popular on the CIS market. The European market is characterized by a lower concentration of contractors participating in international export–import operations in comparison with the world steel market and its regional segments. The possibilities of expansion and intensification of metal trading on the world market are analyzed using the concept of bifurcation points for the distribution of a product on a market and information about this product.
