Steel Market Conditions
Things are looking up for steelmakers after a rough patch during the economic downturn and a winter weather-chilled first quarter.
Demand for steel was relatively flat in the United States in 2013, but AcrelorMittal is expecting a 4 percent increase in demand and shipments this year.
The steel industry got a boost from strong car sales in 2013, which hopefully should continue into this year, said Susan Zlajic, manager of government affairs at ArcelorMittal USA Inc.
Steelmakers continue to struggle with weak demand, low prices and overcapacity.
