Metals & Metal Products Industry: Company Facts, Figures & Analytical Insights
San Jose, California (PRWEB) June 04, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – The world metal industry is going through a bearish period. Outlook for the industry remains constrained by the challenging global environment, especially the slower growth in China and manufacturing stagnation in Europe. The end of the commodity super cycle and softness in base metal prices as a result of weaker demand in the international market are exerting immense pressure on the profitability of metal and mining companies. With China producing and consuming over 45% of global base metals, the slowdown of the Chinese economy is creating growth killing overcapacity issues in the industry. Together with rising raw material costs, stricter environmental regulation, production cuts, falling capacity utilization rates, trade frictions, and growing pressure to innovate to ensure sustainability, metal companies are being forced to negotiate uncertainty and change in business climate and competition. The rise of new competitors from China, India and South Korea with cutting edge technological prowess, competencies and production capacities is additionally intensifying competition in an already tough marketplace. Given the growing number of companies competing for growth in the metal industry, continuous monitoring of competition is seen as imperative to maintain value in volatile economic conditions. The need to develop competitive differentiation is even more acute given the commoditization of the metal industry and transparency of prices which together tend to blur differences among competitors.
