Prices in the above table are for reference only. No data may be reproduced in any manner whatsoever without written permission from MEPS.

Note:- North American Stainless Steel Prices are computed from the low prices identified in the US (midwest) collected in US Dollars for each product in the relevant period.

Index is based on April 1997 = 100.

To calculate an index number, divide the selected month’s price by the starting (base) value. Then multiply by 100. For example: Index number = ($720 / $500) x 100 = 144. To calculate the month-on-month percentage change, divide this month’s value by last month’s value. Then subtract 1 and multiply by 100. For example: Percentage change = ((120 / 110) -1) x 100 = +9%.

All price and market data is researched by MEPS staff and our local correspondents. The data in this table has been calculated from prices obtained from respondents who we consider provide accurate intelligence on relevant steel markets. We make our best endeavors to be assured that the information is correct and that our analysis is reliable. MEPS (INTERNATIONAL) LTD cannot be made liable for any loss resulting from the use of the pricing information on this website however it may arise.

Our predictions are based on a wide experience of steel consumption patterns. The econometric models we have constructed take into account raw material costs, macro-economic factors, past price trends and the dynamics of the market. However, steel prices can be influenced by a number of other factors. These include currency exchange rates,  trade regulations including import safeguard measures, anti-dumping actions and other government interference in normal trade patterns. More than one third of all steel produced is sold outside the country of manufacture. Accordingly, changes in market conditions in one country can impact on pricing in other parts of the world. Consequently, these forecasts should be used only as a guide to future tendencies. MEPS (INTERNATIONAL) LTD cannot be made liable for any loss resulting from the use of these price forecasts however it may arise. (See License Terms and Conditions)
