[Ferro-Alloys.com] Since March, all over the country have done a good job in epidemic prevention and control while vigorously promoting the resumption of work and production, and all links of the economic chain are recovering. The main performance is that the recovery of production side is faster than that of demand side, the improvement of industrial value added data is better than that of investment and consumption, and the recovery of investment demand is faster than that of consumption demand. In the consumption demand, the growth rate of residents' income declines, the spread of overseas epidemic makes the prospect of foreign demand more pessimistic, the new export order index of manufacturing industry is in the contraction range for three consecutive months, and it continues to fall back in April, all of these factors will restrict the recovery of demand side.
In general, in the process of gradual economic recovery, the total demand for steel and the downstream demand structure will change. In addition to the changing international situation, the steel market will gradually find a new dynamic balance. Affected by the alternation of multiple factors at both ends of supply and demand, the bottom of steel price fluctuates or maintains for a certain period of time. Steel enterprises should control the production and sales rhythm according to the demand.
