The European Steel Association

EUROFER is located in Brussels and was founded in 1976. It represents 100 per cent of steel production in the European Union. EUROFER members are steel companies and national steel federations throughout the EU. The major steel companies and national steel federations in Switzerland and Turkey are associate members. The European steel industry is a world leader in its sector with a turnover of about 170 billion euros and direct employment of about 330 thousand highly skilled people, producing on average 170 million tonnes of steel per year. More than 500 steel production sites in 24 EU Member States provide direct and indirect employment and a living for millions of European citizens. Closely integrated with the European manufacturing industries, steel producers provide the basic material for innovation, growth and wealth in Europe.

      EU28 apparent steel consumption grew by 2.6% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2018 and amounted to 38 million tonnes. Quarterly apparent steel consumption had, on average, been around 43 million in the first half of the year. Lower consumption in the third quarter can be explained from the usual seasonal slowdown in manufacturing and construction activity and some destocking in the supply chain. Estimates for the fourth quarter of 2018 show a further deceleration in year-on-year growth in apparent steel consumption and again a lower quarterly volume as a result of seasonal destocking in the final quarter of the year. EU steel market fundamentals are expected to remain moderately positive. Nevertheless, apparent steel consumption growth is forecast to slow down to only 0.5% in 2019 followed by 1.2% in 2020, less than one-third of the compound annual growth rate of apparent steel consumption over the period 2014-2018. This very modest growth scenario in combination with a global steel market that is suffering from overcapacity, slowing demand – and as a consequence a flurry of protectionist measures – has the potential to develop into a major threat for EU market stability over the forecast period. The proposed relaxation of the safeguard measures appears to be over-proportionate and entails the risk of undermining the effectiveness of the mechanism.
