MMK to launch new continuous hot-dip galvanizing line

During his speech about trends on the Russian metal market, Sapozhnikov discussed the potential for a sustainable recovery in metal consumption in Russia starting from 2017 following three years of decreasing market volumes. He added that growth of metal consumption will be driven by the construction and carmaking industries, and will in part be satisfied by the new continuous hot-dip galvanizing line expected to be commissioned in July 2017. This launch is in line with MMK’s strategy to increase the share of high value-added products in its sales structure.

The 13th Annual Steel Markets Europe conference, held on 19-20 June in Barcelona, was organised by information and analytics provider Platts. Participants included major metal companies and associations such as ArcelorMittal, Tata Steel Europe, the European Steel Association (Eurofer) and the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI). Topics included the growth potential of global and European metal sectors amid market demand for metal, increasing trade restrictions, continued surplus of metal facilities and steel overproduction in China.
