DUPLEX STAINLESS STEEL MARKETS IN 2019 ....... AND BEYOND
Duplex stainless steels count for less than 2% of the stainless steel market today, but are expected to grow healthy (significantly higher than the overall stainless market) in the next 10 years.
The presentation will show the historic development and status quo of the supply- and demand side of the duplex stainless steel market. It will list the biggest 20 producers world-wide and show the market structure by product form (plate, HRC, CRC, wire rod/wire, bars, tube and re-bars). Also the market structure by steel type (lean duplex, 22%, 25%) will be shown and discussed. A discussion of the future market drivers and inhibitors for the 3 market segments (projects, maintenance and new applications) will be discussed and shown. Finally a 5 year market forecast (to 2023) will be provided. In order to put duplex into the context of the overall stainless steel industry a few key facts about the total stainless steel industry will be provided. Especially the new NPI based ‘4-in-1’ production technology in Indonesia will be introduced and the potential impact on the rest of the world discussed.
