Vietnam: Limited Deals Keep Imported HRC Offers Under Pressure

This week imported HRC offers to Vietnam inched down further in line with continual decline in HRC export offers from China. Chinese HRC exports offers have reached to rock bottom due to significant fall in domestic prices.

Meanwhile ample supply of imported material and sluggish demand in downstream products in Vietnam market has kept imported HRC offers on downside.

Buyers in Vietnam are expecting further fall in export offers from China. Thus they have postponed their purchase plans and will book material later since they are holding enough stock in hand. Thus no major deals were reported in the beginning of the week.

Also as per SteelMint price assessment, imported HRC offers to Vietnam slashed by USD 30-35/MT on monthly basis to USD 505/MT CFR in June’19 which was USD 540-545/MT CFR basis in month of April’19.
