James F. King offers information and consultancy advice to the steel and associated raw materials industries. Services cover the economic and commercial aspects of these industries, from mining to semi-finished and finished mill products and are generally of three types (i) regular information services for subscription clients, covering developments in markets, production potential [i.e. capacity], costs of production and prices (ii) annual market reviews and forecasts for major products and (iii) special consultancy reports (including steel cost models, world cost curves etc) undertaken to clients' specifications.
Mr King's capacity assessments cover most types of steel plant, including raw material preparation plants (sinter, coke, direct reduced iron and HBI, pig iron), steelmaking (through the basic oxygen furnace or electric furnace routes), continuous casting (including slab, billet and bloom production) as well as rolling (steel sections, bar, rod, plate, hot or cold-rolled coil, and coated products such as galvanized sheet). Facility data is available for most countries, with data available from year 1990 until 2020
Market assessments cover estimates of production, which together with figures for import and export volumes (based on United Nations data), show apparent consumption calculations for most finished and semi-finished steel products. These determinations are available for all countries or geographic regions for the years 1990 onwards, through to 2020, and include demand forecasts prepared to the year 2040.
