Fast Market Research recommends "Turkey Metals Report Q1 2014" from Business Monitor International, now available
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/27/2013 -- Despite relatively weak growth to be expected in the near-term, the medium-term outlook for Turkey's metals sector remains promising due to strong demand from the domestic construction and autos sectors. Near-term headwinds are likely to include currency weakness making imports of materials more expensive and weak global steel prices squeezing steel-makers' margins.
Over the medium-term we forecast Turkey's total steel production to grow from 35.9mnt in 2012 to 42.8mnt in 2017. We expect growth to average 3.6% y-o-y over 2013-2017, a downward revision to our previous forecast of 5.5% y-o-y. This is largely a result of negative growth over the first seven months of 2013 on the back of weak global steel prices and a weak lira pushing up the cost of imports of materials.

We expect to see Turkey's two largest steel producers, Erdemir and Kardemir, continue to outperform following steady output growth over H113. In July 2013 Standard and Poor's raised Erdemir's long-term corporate credit rating from 'B' to 'B+' reflecting the company's strong operating performance.
