10 Steel demand shifts to low gear with China deceleration Lack of growth engine after China Post-crisis recovery led by the emerging economies Apparent Steel Use, finished steel (SRO April 2015) China, Mt Developing ex China, Mt Developed, Mt World, y-o-y % growth China Developing ex China Developed y-o-y % growth Source: worldsteel SRO 10

11 Developed Economies in Focus Apparent Steel Use, finished steel (SRO April 2015) Strong growth seen in 2014 in the developed world on the back of strength in the US, 'but moderate growth in US steel demand to stagnate in 2015 due to high base and strong dollar, material competition in the auto sector Spain showing signs of recovery after a long crisis Japan and Korea continued to show moderate growth Mt % /13 15/14 16/ as % of 2007 World United States European Union (28) Japan South Korea Developed Economies Source: worldsteel SRO 11

12 Emerging Economies in Focus Apparent Steel Use, finished steel (SRO April 2015) Subdued outlook in major emerging economies, e.g. Russia and Brazil India s outlook brightens with new reform initiatives High growth expected in ASEAN with strong fundamentals Source: worldsteel SRO /13 15/14 16/ as % of 2007 World China India Brazil Mexico Russia Turkey MENA ASEAN (5) Emerging & Developing Economies excl. China Mt %

13 Weak performance of CIS countries Apparent Steel Use, finished steel (SRO April 2015) Russia: Structural slowdown aggravated by geopolitical tensions and weaker oil prices. Investment activity undermined by curtailed access to capital markets, both domestic (tight monetary policy) and international (sanctions). Private consumption to decline, fiscal stimulus will be capped by tight budget. Decline in steel-using sectors on the back of investment activity downturn and shrinking real income. Ukraine: Weak performance of economy in = Apparent Steel Use, finished steel (SRO April 2015) World CIS Russia Ukraine Source: worldsteel SRO Mt % /13 15/14 16/ as % of 2007 World CIS Russia Ukraine

14 Diverging growth prospects of the developing economies Structural reform will define growth potential Brazil and Russia trapped in structural problems Mexico has brighter prospects thanks to the strong reform agenda MENA outlook clouded by low oil prices and geopolitical instability ASEAN countries with reform agenda will outperform others India getting ready for a take off with renewed reform initiatives Unleashing potential of emerging markets GDP/capita, USD Urbanisation, % Population, (mln) Steel use per capita, kg India Indonesia Vietnam Thailand Sources: UN, Global Insight, worldsteel Egypt

15 Conclusion The steel industry faces new normal of low growth with peaking of Chinese steel demand and structural changes in the world economy With Chinese deceleration the world lacks a strong growth engine Unleashing the potential of other emerging economies takes time Capacity build ups in newly emerging economies cause concern Focus on value creation rather than expansion 15
