BMI View: BMI's Q3 2014 Sweden Metals report examines the trends within the country's steel and aluminium sectors and assesses the challenges facing the industry's key players as they look to recover from the downturn in metal demand and prices over the past few years.

After the malaise of the past few years, the recession in the Swedish steel sector appears to have bottomed out. While output remains low on a historical level, we estimated the country's to have experienced positive production growth in 2013. Meanwhile, a key bellwether for the industry, the country's largest steelproducer, SSAB, enjoyed a return to profit growth during Q1 2014, following six consecutive quarters of decline.

While the sector looks to have turned a corner, we caution that producers will continue to adopt cautious strategies over the coming months as they look for signs of a sustainable recovery. The Sweden metals Q3 2014 report analyses the growth and risk management strategies being employed by the leading players in the steel and aluminium sectors, as they seek to maximise the growth opportunities in niche markets, such as energy plants.
