However, South European HRC index remained mostly stable during the week, firmly establishing itself below the €300 a ton mark.

According to the latest industry numbers, Italy continues to receive an influx of lower priced import material, which is suppressing domestic mills’ asking prices.

Between Jan-Aug this year, Italy accounted for 35% of all EU steel imports, while HRC and CRC imports into the country increased by 75% and 71% year-on-year respectively.
