  Japan lifts heavy plate export price

 

     
 

It is reported that Japan offered heavy plate price at US$700/ton for May and June to Middle East while the prices of heavy plate are decreasing all over the world.

Because of the increasing slab price rather than the increasing demand from the construction industry, Japan lifted the heavy plate price to Middle East. Currently, the prices of heavy plate are ever lower than HRC on the U.S. and EU market and the price of heavy plate tends to be lower than the slab.

Market participants estimated that Japan would also offer US$700/ton to South-east Asia soon.
