VIETNAM STEEL INDUSTRY

The first 3 months of 2019 was a period of time when the steel industry witnessed many positive changes: the domestic steel price went up to 12.6 million VND/ton due to the impact of material price fluctuation, however, the steel industry was ebullient because of the increasing demand for the construction season.

Regardless structural steel, despite the pretty good growth rate of volume, the business efficiency did not rise correspondingly . The structural steel consumption increased 20.71% over the same period of 2018.
Regardless flat steel, the year 2018 was also a particularly difficult year for flat steel enterprises. Currently, 2 steel projects (Viet – Trung Steel Factory, Phase 2 of Thai Nguyen Iron and Steel Factory) are still weak, dependent on billet protection policy of the Ministry of Industry and Trade , ore consumption, especially it is seriously losing its capital balance.

Regardless steel trade, despite having difficulty in exporting, Vietnam steel exports still increased by 23.45% in volume and 8.78% in value. In the first 3 months of 2019, China was still the biggest supplier of Vietnam, accounting for 40.95% of the total imported steel volume.

It is forecasted that 2019 will be a year when the steel industry continues to face many difficulties: the difficulty of the trend of protectionism in the world is still increasing, the US – China trade war has not yet come to an end, the continuous fluctuation of raw material price will have an impact on Vietnam’s steel industry.

However, Vietnam steel association has a positive views about the steel industry. In 2019, Vietnam steel industry will still have opportunities to develop when the Government sets a high economic growth goal at 6.8 – 7%. After 3 years of public investment capital disbursing shortfall, in 2019, the Government is determined to boost disbursement. When the disbursement situation gets better, new construction projects will increase and steel consumption will prosper … Accordingly, in 2019, steel industry growth may still be at 10%.
