Bangladesh continues to be one of Asia most emerging markets in Steel, Cement & Power sector with a growing need for advanced technologies and raw materials such as Scrap, Billet, Sponge/HBI, Pig Iron, Coal & HRC.SteelMint Events proposes to organize the 3rd edition of Steel & Raw Material Conference Emerging Bangladesh, which sets up a unique platform to bring key industry leaders together with global suppliers to discuss technology, trends, fresh ideas, and potential business opportunities.In the 1 and a half day International Confex (Conference cum Exhibition), meet over 300 key industry participants from the upstream, midstream, and downstream value chain of Bangladesh's Steel Industry to learn and discuss the challenges facing the industry, ranging from domestic policy alterations, growing raw material import demand, port congestion issues, to modernization and efficiency improvements in various Steelmaking, ship-breaking and Rolling operations for the future of the industry.
Burning coal for electricity is lessening in many countries, but the Bangladesh story is somewhat different.Neglecting the cautious approach taken by the developed countries towards environment protection, Bangladesh is planning to increase reliance on coal.Rising coal imports on the back of its high demand have opened up opportunities for overseas suppliers while compelling the government to mull over possible elimination of import duty to clear the path.To bring a focus on this interesting situation of the Coal industry, SteelMint Events is coming up with 'The Bangladesh Coal Conference 2020' with an objective to explore all the new opportunities and understand the coal industry scenario in Bangladesh.
Indian iron ore and steel industry has been going through a tough phase on tighter iron ore supplies, especially in the state of Odisha which observed the auctioning of key mining leases. The exchange of hands, logistical constraints, and the pandemic have curtailed iron ore production in the state. With just 8 auctioned iron ore mining leases being able to resume production, out of 19 mines till Oct'20, Odisha iron ore fines prices have shot up by over three-fold in the last six months. Let's get insights from industry stalwarts on the current scenario and the way forward.

Indian long steel prices are rallying with prices that have hit record-high levels. Raw material cost-push and supply constraints have resulted in sharp price hikes. How long will the price rally continue?
Indian flat steel prices are rallying with prices that have hit record-high levels. Raw material cost-push, pent up demand from auto & white good sales, and supply constraints have resulted in sharp price hikes. Indian mills have been cutting down export allocations on higher domestic realizations. How long will the price rally continue?
The government has invited technical and financial bids for 38 coal blocks to be submitted for commercial mining. Sans the restrictive end-user clause in mining auctions, commercial mining is expected to boost output and rein in burgeoning coal imports. However, uncertainties persist about private participation in coal mining, especially at a time when core sectors of the economy are grappling with the pandemic-induced slowdown. Join us as we interact with our panel of experts on a plethora of pressing issues.
Steel pipes and tubes industry is one of the important segments of the Indian Steel sector, it contributes around 8 % of India's steel consumption. The steel pipes and tubes industry is classified into two segments - Electric Resistant Welded (ERW) and Submerged Acr Welded and Seamless (S&S). The Rs. 50,000 crore steel pipes and tubes industry is split equally between the ERW and S&S segments into value terms. In volume terms, the domestic market is split 70:30 between the two segments.
Easing lockdown measures, lower logistical constraints and demand pick up has boosted sentiments in Indian domestic steel market. India's finished steel production and apparent steel consumption increased by 16% and 13% respectively in Jun'20 against May'20 signalling optimistic market sentiments. Indian mills have sharply raised steel prices in July. What is the ground reality in terms of domestic demand and what are the challenges that the end-user segment is still facing?
With the easing of lockdown, how has the scenario changed for the steel industry in India and overseas? Where are the opportunities and challenges at this juncture? The government has also announced a slew of measures. How will steel benefit from these? How will the recovery trend look like? Will it be longs-driven? We catch up with Tata Steel Limited to get a clearer picture. Join us on Thursday, 16 July 2020 at 4:00 PM (IST), 2:30 PM (Dubai Time), 6:30 PM (Singapore Time) as we interview Mr Peeyush Gupta, Vice President (Marketing & Sales), Tata Steel Limited & Chairman, NatSteel Asia & TS Thailand plc, to understand the group's plans for the future against the pandemic outbreak. The webinar aims to shed light on the following key points of discussion:The COVID-19 effect on steel demand & consumption in India What kind of recovery is expected in H2 FY21? Impact of the auto sector slowdown on steel Strategies needed to increase steel consumption in India
