Metal Department of METI pointed out that the overseas uncertainties such as trade frictions are increasing while domestic demand in Japan slows down. Japan's iron and steel enterprises are seeking for new demand and adjusting inventory.

In the second quarter of fiscal year 2019, carbon steel output of Japan's blast furnace iron and steel enterprises is expected to drop by 540kt or 6.8% compared with the same period of last fiscal year.Asian Metal Copyright Japan's iron and steel enterprises are seeking for new demand and adjusting inventory.Asian Metal Copyright In light of the uncertainties brought by US-China trade frictions, the inventory for products such as H-beam steel, wire rods, plates and sheets would see a reduction of 440kt or 5.Asian Metal Copyright6% compared with the same period of fiscal year 2018.Asian Metal Copyright6% compared with the same period of last fiscal year.
