BMI View: Production data for H1 2014 indicate robust growth across the Belgium steel sector with the industry on track for its first full-year of positive output since 2011. While the short-term outlook for Belgium's steel sector is looking increasingly positive, we caution that weak domestic consumption, coupled with a stuttering eurozone recovery is likely to make local producers wary of increasing capacity.

Our analysis assesses the outlook for the steel sector against the backdrop of European market struggling with weak local consumption and increasing competition from imported Chinese steel.
