Iranian billet market has started recovering from dull sentiments and has picked up pace this week. According to SteelMint’s assessment, this is primarily due to the recent increase in Turkey’s scrap import prices, which witnessed a hike of USD 10/MT, yesterday against last week.
The dullness in the Iranian market continued for this week as well, market sentiments have remained marginally down with limited trades being witnessed this week. Imposition of sanctions from US on Iran is dampening the market sentiments.
