Due to the demanding </p><p>environment, carbon, micro-alloyed, high strength and stainless steels are all used in the </p><p>production of offshore platforms and pipelines. Some of the end-uses of steel in energy sectors are </p><p>oil and gas wells and platforms, pipelines, electricity power turbine components, electricity pylons, </p><p>wind turbines, transmission towers, electromagnets, transformer cores and electromagnetic </p><p>shields. Different kinds of steel are used in the energy sector, including plates, pipes, tubes, </p><p>sheets, bars and sections. The energy sector accounted for 3.5% of the global steel consumption. </p><p>Visiongain predicts that steel consumption in the energy sector will increase from a value of $39 </p><p>billion in 2013 to a value of $55 billion in 2024. </p><p>-4</p><p>-2</p><p>0</p><p>2</p><p>4</p><p>6</p><p>8</p><p>10</p><p>0</p><p>10</p><p>20</p><p>30</p><p>40</p><p>50</p><p>60</p><p>2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024AG</p><p>R( %</p><p>) </p><p>Mar</p><p>ket V</p><p>alue</p><p> ($bi</p><p>llion</p><p>) </p><p>Energy (oil &amp; gas) AGR</p><p>Source: Visiongain 2014 </p><p>Table 4.6 Energy Steel Market Forecast 2014-2024 ($bn, AGR %, CAGR %, Cumulative) </p><p>Source: Visiongain 2014 </p><p>Figure 4.9 Energy Steel Market Forecast 2014-2024 ($bn, AGR%) </p></li><li><p> Page 91 </p><p> </p><p>Steel Market Forecast 2014-2024: Prospects in Construction, Automotive, Machinery, Appliances, Energy, Metal Goods &amp; Shipbuilding Applications </p><p>5.3.11 Italian Steel Market Forecasts 2014-2024 </p><p>2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024</p><p>Production 24.1 25.0 25.5 26.0 27.0 25.0 27.0 27.3 26.9 26.7 26.5 28.0</p><p>Consumption 26.0 25.0 24.0 23.0 22.1 23.0 21.1 21.0 19.5 20.0 18.7 19.0</p><p>Balance -1.9 0.0 1.5 3.0 4.9 2.0 5.9 6.3 7.4 6.7 7.8 9.0 </p><p>-4</p><p>-2</p><p>0</p><p>2</p><p>4</p><p>6</p><p>8</p><p>10</p><p>0</p><p>5</p><p>10</p><p>15</p><p>20</p><p>25</p><p>30</p><p>2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024</p><p>bala</p><p>nce </p><p>mill</p><p>ion </p><p>tonn</p><p>es </p><p>mill</p><p>ion </p><p>tonn</p><p>es </p><p>Italy Consumption Balance</p><p>Figure 5.36 Italian Steel Production, Consumption and Balance Forecast 2014-</p><p>2024(million tonnes) </p><p>Table 5.22 Italian Steel Production, Consumption and Balance Forecasts 2014-2024 (million tonnes) </p><p>Source: Visiongain 2014 </p><p>Source: Visiongain 2014 </p></li><li><p> Page 114 </p><p> </p><p>Steel Market Forecast 2014-2024: Prospects in Construction, Automotive, Machinery, Appliances, Energy, Metal Goods &amp; Shipbuilding Applications </p><p>7. Expert Opinion ____ 7.1 Terence Soh, Senior Analyst, The Steel Index Ltd. Shanghai, China </p><p>Profile: </p><p>Terence Soh is a senior analyst from at The Steel Index (TSI), a leading provider of impartial price </p><p>information for key steel, scrap and iron ore products around the world, based on spot market </p><p>transactions. Visiongain interviewed Terence Soh and he offered to share his thoughts and gave </p><p>us a comprehensive and detailed insight into the global steel market. We would like to thank </p><p>Terence Soh for his contribution. </p><p>7.1.1 Why Consolidation and Price Risk Management are the Themes </p><p>for the Next Decade? Visiongain: Why would you say are the key trends and developments in the steel market and why? </p><p>Terence Soh: Consolidation and price risk management are the themes for the next decade. We have witnessed an increase in global production levels unprecedented for generations, as </p><p>industrialising economies demand soared. Now, we have a large amount of installed capacity and </p><p>a more balanced supply/demand environment. As uneconomic steel mills are worked out of the </p><p>system, everyone else has to protect their margins. The steel market is evolving to use derivative </p><p>tools to hedge and protect their price risk exposure. The derivative tool (swaps/futures) started for </p><p>Iron Ore, but has developed rapidly into other products, like rebar, HRC, and etc. Singapore </p><p>exchange (SGX) started with Iron Ore swaps/futures and just recently in February starting the hot </p><p>rolled coil swaps/futures to satisfy the growing demand from steel participants to protect their </p><p>margins in finished steel products. </p><p>7.1.2 What Affects Iron Ore and Steel Prices? Visiongain: Do you anticipate any substantial price decline in iron ore and steel prices in the next ten years? </p><p>Terence Soh: The steel over capacity issues will remain and could worse in future, as many of the </p><p>mills in China are still continuing expanding their production capacity. This will have an impact on </p><p>the raw material and steel prices, unless demand increases to match output levels, or uneconomic </p></li><li><p> Page 125 </p><p></p></li></ul>
