SMM: Russian steel pipe manufacturer TMG Zhou said that steel pipe shipments in the second quarter of this year were 666000 tons, down 8% from 727000 tons in the first quarter.
Shipments of large-diameter pipes decreased month-on-month, down 42% in the second quarter compared with the previous quarter. The company said this was mainly due to a decline in demand due to a difficult macroeconomic environment.
