The Russian metals sector will face headwinds over the coming quarters as European and US demand remain weak and global oversupply weakens metal prices. We expect production of key metals to remain modest, with company investment plans focusing on improving processing plant efficiency and reducing costs rather than building new plants or expanding production capacity. Despite the weak growth, Russia will remain one of the world's largest producers of key base and industrial metals such as 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 steel makers experience squeeze margins resulting in production cuts. Russian steel consumption will be boosted by the country being awarded a number of large-scale events to host in the country, which has brought substantial investment into construction. However, the global steel market will remain mired in significant overcapacity, sluggish demand and weak margins.
