How does Central Asia factor into ArcelorMittal’s global steel strategy?
Despite the volatility in global market demand for steel, global steel
producers that are still looking at growth or at least trying to improve
As mentioned by Mike Elliott, the global head of mining for Ernst and
Young, one of the key strategies that these steel producers are deploying is
to develop some of their newer capacity closer to market, and that there
have been a trend on quite a number of joint ventures and in fact some
Greenfield operations starting to crop up in places like India which is actually putting that
production much closer to the customer.
That is exactly whatSteel giant Arcelor Mittal is doing in Central Asia, where it is developing
new mining operations to be closer to its main consumer market – China.
With Central Asia’s close proximity to China, we should be expecting more steel companies
leveraging on Central Asia to grow their business in Asia.
