At first meme
Sorry for not providing specific data, because I cannot find them on the internet.
1) The trend of steel price in the past three years
There is an important index to value steel in china, the Baoshan Steel Market Bargain Price Index. It’s made by Baoshan Steel Market Price Management CO. Referring to the classifying method of the CRU of the international steel price index,
Baoshan Index includes flat sheet index, long product index and integrated index, in order to compare with foreign price.
The index is based on the actual dealing price of the daily market, from the sample companies and about sample products, and takes full account of the representation of the structure of the steel products development. The sample companies mainly consist of well-known steel companies, for example, the Shanghai Baoshan Steel CO., at the Yangtze River region.
你要是一般性的了解钢铁厂的概况、主要设备、主要产品、主要生产经营指标、主要大事记等，可以每年购买一本《中国钢铁工业年鉴》就可以了，这是中国钢铁工业协会编撰的，每年一更新；还有一本《世界钢铁厂》，冶金工业出版社出版的，不过它的更新速度不是定期的，也可以了解大概。Chart 1 the Baoshan Steel Market Bargain Price Index in 2006-05-29 to 2007-05-17
Chart 2 the Baoshan Steel Market Bargain Price Index in 2007-05-29 to 2008-05-21
Chart 3 the Baoshan Steel Market Bargain Price Index in 2008-05-29 to 2009-05-29
What have to stress is that the numbers at the left side in each chart doesn’t represent the marketing price, but the trend. For example, in 2008, the peak value of cold rolling sheet metal was 7480RMB per ton, and then fell by 1380RMB per ton because of the financial crisis. And now the cold rolling sheet metal price is about 6500RMB per ton.
2) The predict of the price in 2009
It reports that the price ratio fell by 4.6% In the first season synchronally in 2008 and 2009. And what about the future? It’s hard to say. The steel industry has suffered hardship since the financial crisis, which made international steel market environment disrupted, as well as the home market, and diminished the demands of downstream industries, e.g. vehicle industry. Though the government takes measures, the future seems un-optimistic.
at last i love you。
