Opened up a Road of High-quality Development & Outlook of Chinese Steel
Market in H2 2022.

Key Points: (Full presentation is available for subscription)
1. Chinese steel industry has entered phase for high-quality development
after 2021. The Chinese government does not support steel exports and
cancels all tax rebates for steel exports. Chinese steel industry will
continue to focus on meeting domestic demand and enter a new development
pattern, in which domestic and overseas markets reinforce each other,
with the domestic market as the mainstay.
2. The future high-quality development direction of Chinese steel
industry is green, low-carbon and intelligent manufacturing.
3. In 2021, the crude steel output of China's top 10 steel mills
accounted for 41.4% of the total output, and has formed a 100
million-ton steel enterprise group, three 40-50 million-ton steel
enterprise groups and six 20-30 million-ton steel enterprise groups.
4. China will increase the exploration and development of domestic iron
ore resources, and implement the reduction of crude steel output. The
tight iron ore supply situation will be improved.
5. SteelHome believes that China’s steel demand in H2 2022 will
rebounded significantly compared with H1 2022. The overall steel market
prices will fluctuate at a high level.
