MEPS Steel Outlooks

MEPS Steel Outlooks are comprehensive long-term forecast reports that bring you the latest 5-year predictions for steel prices and production. 

Our quarterly World Steel Production & Consumption Outlook gives you five years of historical production and consumption data, in addition to five-year forecasts across the most important steel producing markets. It is designed to assist you in understanding global steel production, trade and consumption across the EU, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Brazil and the USA.

MEPS Steel Price Outlooks are a series of three publications with data focusing on Europe, North America and Asia, respectively. Here you will find five-year flat and long product steel price forecasts, as well as the latest steelmaking raw material cost projections. Unlike other MEPS Publications, these are published annually, at end of the calendar year.
