SMM believes that the levying of anti-dumping duties on EU, South Korea, Indonesian stainless steel has been expected by the market, and in the short term, sentiment will boost market confidence. In fact, we can see from customs data that the quantity of Indonesian stainless steel exported from China has been gradually reduced since October last year. This stainless steel anti-dumping incident has not yet had an impact on the production of stainless steel in Indonesia. Under the existing cost advantage, Indonesian stainless steel will still maintain normal production. Increase exports to other countries, accounting for China's share of stainless steel exports.
