The Russian metals sector will face headwinds over coming quarters as European and US demand remains weak and global oversupply weighs on metal prices. We expect production of key metals to remain modest, with company investment plans focusing on improving plant efficiency and reducing costs rather than building new plants or expanding production capacity. Despite weak growth, Russia will remain one of the world's largest producers of base and industrial metals including nickel, steel and aluminium.

Steel, Aluminium & Nickel Supply Glut To Weigh On Growth

We expect Russia's rank among global steel producers to come under threat, as the country's largest steelmakers experience squeezed margins resulting in production cuts. The global steel market will remain mired in significant overcapacity, sluggish demand and weak margins for the foreseeable future due to China's failure to reform its bloated steel sector.
