World steel dynamics. Winners in steel need to be offensive

Peter F. Marcus, Karlis M. Kirsis

    Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


    The international steel industry has taken a dynamic path. It is in a state of accelerated structural change. These changes are largely independent of the business and the steel cycles. We are witness to a revolution in technology, management techniques and the application of the computer. Other key forces include the competitive pricing structure, new world steel trade patterns, shifting foreign exchange rates, cross-border investing by the world's leading steelmakers, financial 'time bomb' threats to established steelmakers, reduced governmental subsidies and normal business cycle factors.
