Vietnamese steel suffers slow growth

access_time May 16,2017 chat_bubble_outline 9 views

Vietnamese steel production and sales growth are slowing, while construction steel consumption has decreased, the Viet Nam Steel Association (VSA) announced.


Vietnamese steel suffers slow growth

Steel businesses have continued their discount and price guarantee policies, causing difficulties to the domestic market, VSA said.


VSA said operation of steel plants both in the north and south last month was quiet compared to the previous month. Some firms have faced difficulties and could suffer losses soon.

Steel prices continue their downward trend, making competition to maintain market shares more severe.

The local steel price in April was reduced by VND400-700 per kilo from the previous month to VND10,600 – VND10,800 excluding VAT.

VSA said the steel sales growth in the first four months of the year was only 2.7 per cent, much lower than the forecast of 10 per cent earlier this year.

The scrap price in the first half of this month decreased by $20-25 per tonne to $255-265 per tonne. The price of steel billet was sharply reduced by $20-25 per tonne to $390-400 per tonne.

Nguyen Van Sua, VSA’s chairman, said its members’ construction steel April output was more than 730,000 tonnes, representing a slight year-on-year increase of 3.6 per cent. However, the output last month was reduced by 14 per cent from the previous month. Consumption of building steel last month also posted 14 per cent and 20 per cent decreases in comparison with the same period last year and previous month respectively to reach 635,000 tonnes.

Sua said steel businesses have continued their discount and price guarantee policies, causing difficulties to the domestic market. Cheap imported rolled steel has also burdened local producers.

The association suggested that steel firms should keep the market stable, removing price guarantee policies while reducing and limiting sale support policies.

Local companies should regularly exchange information and report to the association to keep competition in the steel market healthy.

In addition, they should co-operate with each other to create a synchronous and sustainable association chain.

The association will continue to analyse and provide information on the massive imports of long steel pipes and rolled coat steel, as well as affects of taxes imposed on steel billet to local producers to avoid speculation. 

VN-Italy steel firm to invest VND1.6 trillion in production     

Viet Nam-Italy Steel Joint Stock Company (VIS) plans to invest VND1.658 trillion (US$72.7 million) in three projects to expand its production capacity, Vietnam News Agency reported.

VIS aims to increase the capacity of its steel and pig iron mills and build new ones through these investments. While 30 per cent of the investment will come from VIS’ capital, 70 per cent will be raised through banking loans.

In the second quarter, VIS plans to invest VND800 billion to build a steel mill with an annual capacity of 500,000 tonnes in Hai Phong City’s Dong Nam Cau Kien Industrial Zone, located in Thuy Nguyen District.

In the fourth quarter, the company will invest VND650 billion to build a steel mill with an annual capacity of 500,000 tonnes in Hung Yen Province’s Pho Noi A Industrial Zone, in Yen My District.

At the same time, it will invest VND208 billion to increase the capacity of its steel mill in Dông Nam Cau Kien Industrial Zone to 600,000 tonnes per year.
