China's aggressive environmental protection campaign has tightened supplies of graphite electrode. Nearly 300,000 tonnes of graphite electrode manufacturing capacity has been shut since the second half of 2016, creating a global shortage and lifting prices by over 300% since January 2017. Presently prevailing volatility has made the market fairly unpredictable leaving trade participants exposed to the possibility of violent fluctuations. Experts from world over have been minutely following updates in the industry to foresee even the slightest variations that could disturb up the delicate trade balance. SteelMint's one day Global Graphite Electrode Conference will address the future demand/supply scenario of Graphite Electrode in 2018, in the context of sky-rocketing prices in the last year, uncertainties surrounding needle coke supply, how China will regulate the global markets, and an assessment of the challenges faced by the Indian buyers.

Strengthening Green Steel Production,
-Building Pillers for New India

AIIFA's 31st National Conference has been designed under the pertinent theme of "Strengthening Green Steel Production: Building Pillars for New India". The strong efforts made by the organizers aim at bringing the entire secondary steel sector under a common umbrella; making consolidated efforts to solve the sectoral issues; strengthening the sectoral presence and importance and building foundations for a sustainable future.

With its crude steel production reaching over 100 Million tonnes (MT); India stands high in the global steel market with an ambitious target of the government on producing 300 Million tonnes (MT) by 2030. Amidst the lucrative national figures and rising importance of India in the global steel industry, environment of the steel sector remains a fact.

The reasons for such volatile conditions of the steel sector can be cited to a number of factors like demand deficiency, decline of trade competitiveness and surge in imports, financial fragility, excessive taxation, low availability of skilled manpower, among others. The future of secondary steel manufacturing especially the small and medium enterprises can be bleak; unless the entire fraternity comes together and face the road-blocks under joint efforts.

The 31st national conference organized by AIIFA is one such opportunity for the entire secondary steel fraternity to come and display our strengths and build foundation for a sustainable future.

The Indian mining sector plays a pivotal role in the country's infrastructure and economy. Globally, India ranks 2nd in Chromite, 3rd in Coal & Lignite and Bauxite, 4th in Iron ore and 5th in Manganese. The future of the mining sector lies in laying emphasis on scientific mining so that state of the art technology is used for exploration, efficiencies are realized, clean technologies and safe mining practices are adopted with adequate supporting infrastructure. India was estimated to have spent $14 billion on coal imports last fiscal year and that figure is likely to rise to $25 billion by 2016/17. This combined with factors like the widening Current Account Deficit, depreciation of the Indian currency , and need for enhancing infrastructure for bringing back growth in the economy has made sure that the Government has introduced a slew of measures to facilitate / enhance mining in India. These are Easing environmental clearance norms for expanding coal mines to help the crippling fuel scarcity in the power sector. Coal blocks auction Cabinet Committee on Investment to fast track project clearances. Inviting Private sector participation in Coal India Limited for developing 13 greenfield projects with a 65 million tonne annual capacity.

Sponge iron is a crucial part of the Indian Steel industry. With an installed capacity of about 45 MnT, India is the largest DRI producer in the world. There are almost 400+ plants registered. Things have not been good for the industry for last few years due to mining ban, restricted supply of Iron ore, logistical issues & Coal linkages. 

But as they say, every commodity has a life cycle. Experts believe that the rough patch is over. Things will change for the industry on factors like evolution of Pellets, increase in Coal imports, expiring WIS rakes & technical changes.

2014-2015 looks good for the industry for various reasons. Let us join together and discuss the possible opportunities ahead.
