All analyses above are supplied in spreadsheet format.
2Choose one of: iron ore, coke, DRI, pig iron, EAF, BOF, slab, billet and bloom, plate, HRC, CRC, galvanised sheet, tinplate, organic coated, sections & rail, bar, rod, seamless or welded tube.
(1) Short-term steel market trends report includes a steel demand volume, steel price and steel cost outlook. The $400 purchase is for 12 monthly reports sent by email.
(2) Steel price and steelmaking raw material cost forecasts include price and cost forecasts to the year 2030. The $400 purchase is for 12 monthly reports [including spreadsheet data] sent by email.
(3) 'Capital Investment Costs for Plant and Equipment in Iron and Steelmaking' identifies current capital investment costs for iron and steelmaking plant, and outlines the per tonne investment costs and typical capacities for each main process step in iron and steelmaking.
(4) Single country steel market report is typically a 5-10 page written report which discusses the principal demand characteristics of a selected market, including consumption levels by main product type, import volumes, import sources and key trends.
(5) 'World Crude Steel Capacity Report' published by James King
. Spreadsheet analysis only, covering crude steel production by country (electric arc furnace, basic oxygen route and other processes), crude steel capacity by country, steelmaking capacity by plant and future changes in crude steel capacity (committed and possible).
(6) 'World Flat and Coated Product Capacity Report' is a spreadsheet analysis which includes sections on hot rolled steel production (plate, hot and cold rolled coil, galvanised steel, tinplate), flat and coated product capacity by country, flat and coated capacity by plant (North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania) and expected changes in steel rolling capacity (committed and possible).
(7) 'World Long Product Capacity Report' is a spreadsheet report which includes sections on rail, heavy sections, bar, rod and tube (seamless and welded) production, long product capacity by country, capacity by plant (North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania) and expected changes in future steel rolling capacity (committed and possible).
(8) Cost models describe typical conversion costs for a single process step (e.g. steelmaking or bar rolling) for a generic steel plant. These models are especially useful for cost benchmarking type work, but need adaptation for local labour and energy costs and other plant-specific matters (e.g. depreciation policy).
(9) Induction furnace steelmaking is significantly different from EAF steelmaking, both in terms of operating and capital investment costs.
(10) Continuous casting cost model describes conversion costs from liquid steel to billet or slab. Conversion costs for both billet and slab are assumed to be identical.
(11) Hot strip mill cost model describes generic conversion costs from steel slab to hot rolled coil.
(12) Cost model for rebar describes conversion costs from hot billet to bar. If required, we can advise separately [for no extra cost] about typical billet reheat costs.
(13) We maintain a database of ~850 capital investment cost records for various items of steelmaking plant and equipment. For items included in the capex cost database, see plant list
(14) KPIs describe selected operating characteristics and are available for the following process steps. Blast furnace, coke, sinter, BOF, EAF, induction furnace, billet casting, bloom casting, slab casting, heavy sections and rail, light sections and bar, continuous hot strip mills, tandem cold rolling and coating. Contact us for further information.
(15) Auto weight analysis includes breakdown of steel use by weight and form in a typical passenger vehicle.
