BMI View: BMI's Czech Metals Report for Q2 2014 assesses the growth prospects for the country's steel sector during 2014 and presents medium-term growth forecasts for steel production to 2018. In Q2 we believe the country's metals sectors will begin to witness a gradual recovery in production levels, following two years of contraction in steel output. The report analyses the reasons for the recovery as well as the ongoing challenges faced by Czech Republic steelmakers over the medium term.

The outlook for the sector is reflected in the actions of Czech steelmakers who, following a sustained period of caution, are starting to expand output levels. In December2013 ArcelorMittal Ostrava, a Czech Republic subsidiary of Luxembourg-based steelmaker ArcelorMittal, announced the completion of modernisation work to the continuous casting machine at its steelworks. The CZK1bn (US$53mn) project was expected to help it improve both the quality and diversity of the steel produced at the facility and to also help the company to boost its steel pipe exports to overseas oil and gas markets.
