Mills in Taiwan stood firm on their bidding prices for imported ISRI grade scrap, which, combined with weak domestic demand for rebar, caused prices to decline further during the week.
Taiwanese Mills have lowered offers for semi-finished and finished long products as they see this weak demand trend continuing.
The recent scrap exports from China added further pressure to the market in North and South East Asia, driving a bearish sentiment through the market.
