BMI View: Taiwan's steel production growth continues to fluctuate as China Steel Corporation (CSC) and other producers find themselves reacting to a changing operating environment, both domestically and in terms of external demand.

Having recovered in 2013 after 2012's contraction, Taiwan's steel output appears to be slowing once more following disappointing production figures in H114. r Taiwanese steel makers remain constrained by the ongoing impact of Chinese oversupply on the global steel sector. With this scenario still in place going into 2015, we expect global prices for the commodity to remain weak over the short-term, which will continue to limit Taiwan's steel production levels.
